The Great Divorce is a short but slow read. It reminds me a bit of Lincoln and the Bardo with the ghosts and whether to move on to heaven or not for whatever the reason, and a bit of the alchemist in the spiritual decisions one must make. This was a thought provoking book and will make an interesting discussion at book club next week.

It‘s cold, and rainy, and dark already! I‘ve been dreaming of this perfect moment all day! I have the house to myself for a bit and I‘m diving into my next book club choice. #dogsoflitsy

As I read this book, I found it to be a journey of choices. The characters had decisions to make which would determine their address for eternity. I highly recommend this book. But, read it slowly, taking time to chew and digest it. Better yet, read it along with a group of others, and take time to discuss it.

Not as good as The Screwtape Letters but still an intreaguing read. A real thought provoker about the things that truly keep people out heaven....
4.2 🌟

In this amazing story, the narrator engages on a journey through Heaven and Hell and meets some spirits and ghosts and learns through conversations the nature of good and evil.

This was a fascinating read. I would have to try to read this every year. 👍👍👍

The Great Divorce is a parable about heaven and hell, but it's even more a story of free will and the vices that prevent us from accepting the truth.

A short story - a slow read.
This prompted a lot of self-reflection and provided cautions for the traps people fall into so needlessly.

I really enjoyed this book. I went in expecting it to be a little dull, but I was surprised. The pacing is very nice and it wasn't difficult for me to read. I definitely liked all of the allegories and symbolism, but if you're not a fan of that stuff I can see why this book wouldn't be as enjoyable.

Mehso-so

There were 3 things that had me feeling obligated to love this book.
1) It's a friend of mine's all time favorite
2) My own beliefs
3) It has amazing reviews. Everyone seems to rave about it.

But I didn't really enjoy it. Purgatory didn't sound half bad compared to the description given of pre-heaven. Thank goodness there was a little ghost conversing going on or I would have turned the magic bus around back to Napoleon's house in gray town.

This was not my favorite CS Lewis work but I still enjoyed it. The work was very didactic and metaphorical, which may be a turn off for some.
Like his other writings, The Great Divorce illustrated his ability to convey deep and profound truths in simple language. But the ending was a let down for me, and I found his depictions of women flat and stereotypical.

Such a great book. This is one of my favorites on any day but also perfect for the #readathon for its brevity. I wholeheartedly recommend this to everyone: it is well-written and easy to read but wonderful at provoking thoughts, especially as an examination of conscience.

I read this as part of my reading Challenge. Ugh. I'm sooooooo glad it was only 145 pages long.

IndianaRed I agree. Our book club picked it for our "Christmas Read". Page 50....snore....heaven is seriously boring. 2y

What if you were given everything at your asking, but couldn't get out of your own way? A beautiful examination of the motivations of people and how inconsequential things sabotage the greatest of gifts.
"'Friend', said the Spirit. 'Could you only for a moment, fix your mind on something not yourself?'"

33% through it, and I'm just not into it. Life is too short to force myself to finish reading something I simply cannot get into. It's not like it's assigned reading for any kind of class. #NoGuilt #Abandoned

About a quarter of the way through the book, and I'm finding a few passages where there are conversations in which I'm not exactly sure which of the characters is uttering what. I start reading thinking I get who is speaking, and then something said in the conversation makes me question if I had it backwards 🤔... Feeling stupid... SMH 😔

So I checked out another e-book from the public library... not like I didn't have anything else to read 😂😋😆

Starting a new literature & composition course with my kids & this is our first book. Nothing like jumping in with 2 feet 😳 CS Lewis is the best though!
