Read full description of the books:
I am as many who've read other reviews etc. from me will know that I'm a huge C.S. Lewis fan. I've read a great deal of his writing (fiction and nonfiction) and recommend it all. This isn't the first boi of read of him.
This is an interesting biography and it does touch on the era before Lewis' conversion. I'm a little leery as we do have to take the writer's word for some of what Lewis nay have thought though in most cases he dies have writings by Lewis himself and those who knew him.
All in all I go 4 stars here but I must admit that the book will probably appeal more to those who are interested in the life of C.S. Lewis. The writing gets a little detail oriented at times but still you get a picture of the man and his journey from atheism to Christianity.

Read information about the authorI am a professor of English at Elizabethtown College in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This is on the edge of "Amish country," and I sometimes pass a horse and buggy on my way to and from campus.
I grew up in Colorado, went to college in Santa Barbara, CA, and earned my PhD from UCLA. I currently teach professional and creative writing at Elizabethtown, as well as a first-year seminar on quest narratives.
I first read the Narnia Chronicles as a college sophomore. I was so enthralled, I read all seven books in a month, then re-read them again the next month. I published my first article on C. S. Lewis that same year. I tackled Lord of the Rings in my junior year of college, and I still remember reading all night, the sun coming up just when I discovered that Gandalf had returned. What a glorious dawn that was!
Living less that an hour from Gettysburg, I have become one of many Civil War buffs in this part of the country. I published A South Divided: Portraits of Dissent in the Confederacy in 2007, a study of Southerners who supported the Union during the war.
My wife, Crystal, is a professor of English and film studies at Messiah College in Grantham, Pennsylvania. She is the author of Writing Performances: The Stages of Dorothy L. Sayers (2004) and How Postmodernism Serves (My) Faith (2006).
