"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

About the Author
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

I really loved the way that the author wrote as if telling a tale. It gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling to read the book, and I wanted to keep reading as it held my attention very well. The characters were lots of fun, and each had a vivid personality that really gave me a great mental image of them. I liked Mr. and Mrs. Beaver the best. They were hilarious!
I really disliked the ending of the book. I can not say much about it without giving spoilers (though i am probably the only one who had not read the book yet, hah!), so I will simply say that it just did not make any logical sense to me. I wish that the final event had been told in a different manner, because it just left me feeling confused.
Overall, this was a great book that people of most ages would probably enjoy. I really liked it a lot, and am now curious what the other books will tell stories about.
What I thought: This is the most well known book of The Chronicle of Narnia series. I loved this book as a little girl, and I bought it for my children who also love it. Interesting, well-written and witty.
What you might want to know: The author is a well known Christian writer and the story has many similarities to the story of Jesus. There are talking animals, magic and some scary/sad scenes. This is actually the second book in the series, though it is a stand alone story--you don't need to have read the previous book to understand this one.
