If you are a fan of CS Lewis, this may be a very welcome and valuable addition to the biographical canon but as a newcomer I'm afraid I was underwhelmed. Perhaps this is not the best place to start.
Colin Duriez's book concentrates on Lewis's friendships and I learned so much more about him from this well-researched and well-written work. His friends' inspiration and feedback clearly influenced his writing.
I also learned details about Lewis's life as a baby and small child in Ireland which I had not gleaned from my earlier reading.
An enjoyable and informative read. Highly recommended.
