The A-Z of C.S. Lewis Litfuse Review

I love the writings of C.S. Lewis. I was given the chance to read the book A-Z of C.S Lewis by Colin Duriez. I was familiar with C.S Lewis and his many children's books especially 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' so found this book very interesting as it opened my eyes to a lot more of C.S Lewis. This book brings together a lot of the writings and information together into one book. It is a little hard to read and takes a little persevering. I did learn a lot of things but I felt I had to work at it.

The main reason it was so overwhelming is because so much knowledge is packed into this little book!

This is not a book I could sit and read all the way through at once. However I love having this sat on my bookshelf to turn to as a reference or flick through when interested. It contains quotes and even information on places that C.S. Lewis had visited. It's very interesting. 

This is definitely an excellent resource for all C.S. Lewis fans.
