C. S. Lewis's dazzling allegory about Heaven and Hell—and the chasm fixed between them—is one of his most brilliantly imaginative tales, where we discover that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside.
In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon in Hell and embarks on an incredible voyage to Heaven. Anyone in Hell is invited on board, and anyone may remain in Heaven if he or she so chooses. But do we really want to live in Heaven? This powerful, exquisitely written fantasy is one of C. S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction and a profound meditation on good and evil and on what God really offers us.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año.

CS Lewis explores unregenerate sin and its consequences in both this life and eternity. For the reflective follower of Jesus, this book will convict one of his own remaining sin. It should also raise concern if not mourning for friends and family that have hardened hearts.

From there is an extraordinary story of good versus evil, Heaven and Hell, and the inhabitants of each.Â
The Great Divorce is an extremely helpful and thought provoking book and very hard to put down once you start. I finished it in a day! Lewis's descriptions of the concepts of Heaven and Hell are as always, very helpful and clear. I highly recommend this book to everyone, no matter what your religious viewpoints are. Everyone is going either to Heaven or Hell, and The Great Divorce helps us see quite clearly how our present acts and choices are daily leading us towards one or the other.Â
FinnishAmericanCAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5The Great DivorceOctober 9, 2011FinnishAmericanCAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A real gem from C .S. Lewis. Lewis does not write in his tradition theological focus. While "The Great Divorce" is theological, it is allegorical and has a depth of meaning that a casual reader can easily miss.
If you want to read a delightful book written by a delightful author you will certainly enjoy "The Great Divorce."
