    When I need to escape to a world that simply enfolds and delights me, and to do so with dispatch, I pull down this book.

  • Stephen says:

    As the title suggests, this is a photographic treatment of Lewis' life, illustrating the towns, universities, and pubs wherein he lived, along with some biographical exposition as extended captions. Personalities central to Lewis' life appear here, like his wife Joy, his stepsons, and of course his numerous colleague and fellow writers, namely Tolkien. There are also unexpected supporting characters like his long-term gardener. The latter inspired a character in The Silver Chair, and the book sm [...]

    Great Photo Essay on the life of C.S. Lewis. Useful information and makes the land of Lewis come alive. It provides a backdrop for Narnia

    I enjoyed this book - it is somewhat classic. The photographs aren't as 'perfect' as the coffee table book 'The Inklings' but the text is notably superior.

    Excellent illustrations; not in the sense of technical quality (which is rather the outmoded kind), but in the accomplishment of their purpose, to capture the essence of Lewis and his extraordinary life. Also contains a surprising amount of text, including a great portion of quotes and exerpts by Lewis himself. Ah, here is a good way to sum up this book; photographs, illustrations and text, it's altogether like exploring Narnia's motherland. Wonderful.

    This book had many photos of CS Lewis life and his many colleagues - it was a good addition to the other book I just finished.

  • Helen says:

    Very informative

  • Matt says:

    Great pics that tell the story of Lewis's life in snapshots. The text is brief and serves more like extended captions.

    Like a walk in the English countryside.
