The A-Z of C.S. Lewis by Colin Duriez REVIEW

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis's death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis' works, from his literary criticism to Narnia

C. S. Lewis's work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work—his children's stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life
and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man—written in 1943 and described as "almost my favorite"—to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life

I was so excited to read this book since I've always been a fan if C.S. Lewis. I really enjoyed reading this book, although, it didn't come off feeling like a pleasure read. More of an informative read, like an encyclopedia about a person. Not quite a biography though. I would say it is more of a reference book that is pleasurable to read. One thing is for sure though, I was already a fan of the late C.S.Lewis, and I have read a few of his books, including the series The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. But after reading this book, it gets me excited to read more of his books yet again.

I would recommend this book
