Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.

 

I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.

 

Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

The Great Divorce - C.S. Lewis, Robert Whitfield

I'm going to be stoned by my Christian friends, I just know it. I don't know why, but I just didn't like this as well as I liked Lewis' other works, like The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia or even Mere Christianity. The writing or literary device used reminded me of The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity, which always sets my teeth on edge. Yes, there are good lessons to be learned within the pages of The Great Divorce. I just didn't care for the delivery as much as I'd hoped. Am I just too young? Too far removed from the world that Lewis lived in? Have the times and civilization changed that much?
