Very eclectic when it comes to books & music.
Lewis' fine mind, even though I disagree with him as an Atheist.
See the above comment.
Yes. It was another Lewis audiobook, I think. He is a consistently excellent reader.
Yes, but it is *way* too long to do that.
C. S. Lewis is the greatest Christian apologist of the 20th Century.... hell, of *any* century. Whether you're a Christian who agrees with him or an Atheist like me, you'll appreciate his great intellect and fine use of the English language.
The content of this book is comprised of C.S. Lewis’ lectures, sermons, magazine articles, etc. and I believe written based on the assumption each respective audience was well educated. One result of this appeared to allow him to freely use quotes in their original language. Given the nature of its content, the reading by Ralph Cosham was so superb that I really felt I was listening to Mr. Lewis speak. Mr. Cosham’s accent, inflection, rhythm, intonation, emphasis, and pronunciation, especially of when applied to quotes in a foreign language were remarkable.
Mr. Cosham’s accent, inflection, rhythm, intonation, emphasis, and pronunciation, especially of when applied to quotes in a foreign language were remarkable. He brought Mr. Lewis to life in the presentation and made listening truly enjoyable.
No. it was easily broken into its various parts, given the nature of the compilation of writings.
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis
Very interesting material. You really have to listen to Mr Lewis, unlike other author's, or you will find yourself wondering what he is talking about. Recommend even though some of the material in this collection I've already purchased in shorter collections. The only real problem I had with this book is that I had to listen to it on my computer because Mr. Cosham's voice is so low I had a hard time hearing him on my kindle fire.
this is a great purchase. there is a ton of material and on a variety of different topics. the reader is fine. it would likely be best enjoyed by a person who has already experienced c.s. lewis in his other more traditional works, one of his (nonfiction) books. its a great supplement of diverse opinions from lewis for fans already familiar with his writing.
If you enjoy Lewis, you'll love this. A lot in this audio book. Lots of wonderful work by Lewis.
I found the narrator to be slightly difficult to hear. Fairly thick British accent, but his tone is a little too soft for my poor hearing. But the stories outweighs any faults in the reading.
