The Great Divorce - C.S. Lewis - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Great Divorce:

A "heavenly" bus ride before giving up the ghost.
Jesus is driving.

My favorite C.S. Lewis quote from the book:

"If we cannot be reverent, there is at least no need to be obscene."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What is your lizard?

What is your excuse?

My review of The Great Divorce:

An interesting look into the afterlife.

I loved the analogy of light.

I love how we grow too big for hell.
