    David says: "An Extraordinary Little Book"
    "Not a book easy to listen to"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Problem of Pain again? Why?

    Yes in order to get all that I missed or misinterpreted the first time.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Lewis's explanation of pain in light of man's now being a genetically new creature, a fallen creature in need of salvation and why pain goes on as man is reshaped back into the form of Adam and Christ, the second, sinless Adam.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    His voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The reshaping of man.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a book easy to listen to. Although Vance does an excellent job of getting out there what Lewis said, Lewis is a Brit, and I as a poor American with my limited exposure to English in its truest form have such a hard time discerning what a man with such an extensive knowledge of the language (who seems aeons beyond me in how he chooses to present things) chooses to say. I had to back up and re-listen so many times. This seems as though it might not require so much of this had I enjoyed the book in print instead. WHEW!
