The Good: Lewis dubbed this a fairy tale for grown-ups. He delivered. It’s fantasy, certainly, but a brilliant portrayal of the effect of ideas. The narrative moves briskly (after a slow start), and many chapters leaving me saying, “Wow” at the end of them. Easy to find in paperback, and cheap, too.
The Bad: The aforementioned slow start. His generous use of biblical and literature allusions will leave some more confused than riveted. Some parts of the text are seen to be mildly chauvinistic.
The Grade: A- (Sure to read again at some point, docked points only for the slow start)
