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
It was pointless and I wishes I had my 3 hours back. I don't get why this was considered such a wonderful story.
C.S. Lewis creates vivid characters representing the different reasons why people refuse to come to God, and all in the format of a compelling story. I love this book, and the narration of the audio version matches its greatness. Rhind-Tutt's voices are perfect. I highly recommend it!
I loved this book. It is as thought provoking as the Skrewtape letters. I would recommend that you read it with a humble heart and mind to get the most from it. I will need to re-read it to capture all he has to teach In this book.
His books need to be taught in high schools so youth can grow deep not only religiously but deep generally in life and their state of mind.
