Item Description...
C. S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, finds himself in a bus which travels between Hell and Heaven. This is the starting point for an extraordinary meditation upon good and evil. 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."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An insightful look into heaven and hell  Jun 8, 2008
In this book C.S. Lewis sets out to present a picture of the nature of heaven and hell through the device of an allegorical journey - by bus! - from hell to a place called the valley of the shadow of heaven. This book reads more like an expose than a traditionally plotted novel. Nevertheless, it's one of the most memorable books I've read. Among the most memorable notions of this book: the dense and material nature of heaven, as contrasted with the ghostly and insubstantial nature of hell; the inability of the damned to be joyful and their ultimate preference for hell over heaven; the surprising characters who come to inhabit each realm (for example, the murderer in heaven, and the mother consigned to hell because she loved her child too much). There are also some interesting bits about salvation operating backwards and forwards in time, and how the best and loftiest angels, if they fall, become the worst of devils. There is a lot to think about in this small book. Well worth it!
A Very Incredible Book  May 30, 2008
I first heard of this book in passing by a guy giving a talk on "getting out of hell". An essay on getting over yourself. During that rant he kept making references to this book, so, having nothing better to do with my time, I bought and read it.

A few months ago I doubt I would have gotten any of it. Even now I doubt I understood half of it, but the half I did understand was just amazing. I'm not a Christian, but it made sense in everyday life.

I am a huge fan of parables, of stories with meaning. This is one of the few books I have boughten for the sole purpose of giving to family and friends.
One of my favorite books!  May 29, 2008
C.S. Lewis was a gifted writer, and it is evident in The Great Divorce. I read some of the reviews on this site, and I think that the people writing the negative ones are not in a place where they can read the book with some imagination. It is not meant to be a factual account of heaven and hell (who could write that?), but it is meant to make you think about yourself and the things that are keeping your heart from being ready to meet the Lord. Give this book a shot. I don't believe that you will be disappointed.
Inaccurate Ambiguous Abstract Allegories about Heaven and Hell  May 27, 2008
Not only does "The Great Divorce" contain too many abstract allegories, but what makes it worse is these allegories are also inaccurate and in some cases false considering this book is written by a Christian author, who seems to believe in hell as being equivalent to annihilation, as alluded near the end of the book. This book talks about C.S Lewis trying to describe the characteristics of people who are supposedly in heaven and hell, much too-humanized ones to the point that they sound bland and dull; those in hell represented by the characters called "the Ghosts"; and those in heaven represented by "the Spirits" by contrasting their joy and misery; happiness and sorrow; love and hatred; charity and malice, respectively. He is trying to put together the secular and biblical views into these characters and the result is ugliness and awkwardness. Even for readers with a great imaginative power to interpret what the true meaning behind the conversations and events surrounding these Ghosts and Spirits is, I still doubt they would be able to resolve the ambiguity. Heaven and hell are the subjects that require more careful and studious efforts to illustrate than what Lewis has done here. For those who are interested in them, I have not read any good fictions about them, but I would suggest Jonathan Edwards' "Heaven: A World of Love", and "The Justice of God in the Damnation of Sinners" or his famous "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," that readers could access online free of charge. Among many other books that Lewis wrote, some of which are excellent ones, but this one is to be avoided.
Just Fantastic!  May 25, 2008
IMHO, this is Lewis' 2nd greatest book (behind Mere Christianity). Every Christian or aspiring Christian should read/listen to this book!
