Imaginative and intriguing

dzhaughn

This book, more than most by Lewis, maybe rewarding even for those not overly sympathetic with his general Christian point of view. Still, this is classic Lewis presenting a philosophy in a story, pleasantly enough. The story is, explicitly, a retelling the myth of Psyche and Cupid, told imaginatively from the point of view of Psyche's decidedly earthbound sister. The question at hand is what happens when a human encounters the divine more or less directly, and how that might affect the relationship with rest of us. Has it ever seemed to anyone that God deals with people in comparable ways? And, so what then? All this and more in 200 fun pages.

Deep And Curious

Everyone knows Lewis's "Chronicles Of Narnia", but few have heard of his novels for grown ups. This one is certainly well worth the read, particularly for those of us interested in mythology and the self.
