Until recently, I wasn’t aware that C.S. Lewis had written anything but children’s books, having only ever read the Chronicles of Narnia books when I was younger. But while I’ve been browsing blogs on WordPress I’ve seen this book mentioned quite a lot, so I decided to buy it while I was a Waterstones with Vicky today, along with Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom and Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho.
The book is a series of lectures that Lewis was asked to give by the BBC during the second world war. The lectures apparently ‘brought comfort to millions in times of war and uncertainty’ and ‘remind us of the truly important things in life’.
I’m not sure yet what to expect, but I’m looking forward to seeing Lewis as more than just the creator of a magical world like Narnia.
