Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Coren, a columnist and host of a popular Canadian radio show, explores "Plain Jack" Lewis's life as a scholar, his friendships with writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, the Christianity that underlies his writing, and the great love story of his final years. Photographs of C.S. Lewis's world, from the grimy streets of Belfast and the horrors of trench warfare to the grandeur of Oxford and Cambridge, bring his story to life. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Kirkus Reviews
As the subtitle says, "The Story of C.S. Lewis": his life, analysis of his religious awakening and adult Christian apologetics, his late-life marriage to Joy Davidman, and details about the creation of the Chronicles of Narnia (though less than will satisfy its more avid fans). On every page, Coren evinces a profound respect for readers and for his subject. The work is serious, thoughtful, and thorough, providing a clear picture of the man as well as the era in which he lived. Although Lewis was a somewhat reserved Oxford (later Cambridge) don whose life revolved around books and academia, Coren conveys the fascination of his life and the pleasures of his association with other writers and scholars in an immensely readable way that children will understand. Filled with black-and-white photographs, this is a first-rate biography for children.
