I wanted to give this 5 stars since the part I enjoyed was engrossing. However, the author's emphasised on Lewis's relationship with his parents was distracting (for me).
Having said that, I couldn't put this down and was surprised how much I loved the Lewis letters. It was a personal glimps into his soul that left a fresh feeling of loss in the end.
Reading about the walking tours, I thought of The Hobbit. It was new to me that they took these hikes that were many miles long touring the English countryside, enjoying the fellowship of close friends, good food, tobacco and beer from little Inns. Apparently it was a passion they shared.
Reading of his tobacco habit was sad though. We lost so many in that generation to bad health from cigarette smoking. Although, admittedly, he probably died from a broken heart as much as anything.
He was a heroic figure characterizing the noble values of the greatest generation.

I added this to my order on a whim and wasn't sure what to expect. I thought it might be nice to hear from one of the young people influenced by CS Lewis, but I worried the book might be *more* than I needed, because the pages in the sample look like a big, coffee-table book. I also wondered if it would be too much of a personal memoir about the author.
I was pleasantly surprised to find the book is a small size that fits nicely on a shelf or in the hand. The content is nicely done, describing many touching and inspiring facts about CS Lewis, his personality, his day-to-day activities, and the folks he hung around with. All descriptions are backed up with excerpts from letters of CS Lewis and others such as his brother. It was also fun to read some of CS Lewis's fun with Latin in his correspondence (which was nicely translated for me).
Very happy with this book.
