C. S. Lewis does a great job of taking a different point of view on life and the things we do. I really love the way this book mixes both philosophy and humor. Showing different ideas in new ways. I can't say that I agree with all the philosophy put forth in this book but I can say I enjoyed it. I also feel that I am better for having read it.
