You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear,
By A Customer
This review is from: George Macdonald: An Anthology : 365 Readings (Paperback)I have never enjoyed the writings of George MacDonald, and even though Lewis tried to select "the best of" with his anthology, I did not benefit from reading this book. The fine introduction by Lewis is what prevents this book from receiving a rating of 1. Don't bother buying this unless you want to read what Lewis wrote.

What on earth did you but it for then?

Hear hear. That was one of the worst reviews I've ever wasted my time reading. Why buy a book with writings by someone you don't like and then tell everyone you didn't enjoy it? Just don't buy the book in the first place so you avoid upsetting those of us who, like CS Lewis, can appreciate MacDonald's writings.
