Editorial Reviews

Review

“Much deserves to be quoted... attractive imagery, amusing satire, exciting speculations... Lewis rouses curiosity about life after death only to sharpen awareness of this world.” -- Guardian

From the Back Cover

In The Great Divorce, C. S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer finds himself in Hell boarding a bus bound for Heaven. The amazing opportunity is that anyone who wants to stay in Heaven, can. This is the starting point for an extraordinary meditation upon good and evil, grace and judgment. Lewis's revolutionary idea is the discovery that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside. In Lewis's own words, "If we insist on keeping Hell (or even earth) we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell."

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Edition Ever!!
By Seth Crosby on March 18, 2017
This edition was edited by "Susan Brawtley" (no presence on the internet) by Brawtley Press (no website). No effort what-so-ever has been made to format the book according to any sensible rules of language. Sometimes the letters are arranged vertically, rather than horizontally (see image). It is a travesty to so mistreat Mr. Lewis!! The back cover is a cut and paste job from Wikipedia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be afraid of the editing reviews!
By Davis on April 24, 2017
Just got this. Checked for formatting errors and found none. This book was published by Harper One. This is a great, high quality edition. I almost didn't order it because of the editing reviews. So glad I went ahead and got it! It is a great quality paper edition. The pages are of different widths which makes the book feel as rich as the story. There's also a "dust jacket" type fold on the front and back cover. I'm really impressed! It's much nicer than I expected or imagined! This is a gift I will be proud to give!
