This book was disappointing to me, as the book is mostly about Douglas Gresham, the son of Joy Davidman and stepson of C.S. Lewis and not C.S. Lewis. Gresham spent most of his time at boarding school during Joy Davidman's and 'Jack's' marriage, and really doesn't seem to know them all that well. Another problem with the book is the lack of context in which things are placed. For example, Gresham's first boarding school was dreadful and he learned nothing--not even how to form the letters of the alphabet!! Why did two incredibly intelligent writers have him stay at the school? It sounds neglectful. Of course, perhaps, there was another reason, but Gresham does not share it.
