C. S. Lewis' dazzling allegory about Heaven and Hell - and the chasm fixed between them - is one of his most brilliantly imaginative tales, where we discover that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside.
In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon in Hell and embarks on an incredible voyage to Heaven. Anyone in Hell is invited on board, and anyone may remain in Heaven if he or she so chooses. But do we really want to live in Heaven? This powerful, exquisitely written fantasy is one of C. S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction and a profound meditation on good and evil and on what God really offers us.

This is an intersting take on why people choose not to believe or what in their psyche prevents them from being able to believe.
This one stands on its own.
The scene with the selfish mother who distorts something as beautiful as love for her son into something evil.
When the lizard was destroyed, the description of the awakening was amazing!
I've read this book 3 times now. It's truly amazing.
This is the most beautiful story I've ever heard. I started this book and went for a walk and couldn't come home this evening and fear of falling asleep before I could finish it. CS Lewis really outdid himself with the story
Great book!!! The narration was very good, I enjoyed the different characters. This book made me stop and think about all I have been led to believe through the teachings of organized religion.
I have read this book a few times in my life. However listening to the narrator with voice inflections and different voices for the characters made me appreciate this story on a much deeper level!
A beautiful captivating fantasy based off the assumption that in order to advance through the afterlife one must first reconcile past mistakes and wrong doings.
It is a counterpoint, in my option, to the Devine Comedy it is much clearer and relatable to the greatness of The Inferno..
Paints a picture far more interesting the the circles of heaven and hell!
Must read for anyone who has read Donte and seeks a different approach.
Beautiful narration and worth the time!
The Great Divorce is a fantastic piece of literature, and this is the first audio recording I've heard that does it justice. Highly recommended!
Ever thought about the battle or differences between Heaven and Hell? Between God's good and evil incarnate? Lewis provokes deep thoughts on the nature of Heaven and the petty grievances we hold against God that reveal our ignorance and evil original unregenerated nature
