    1. Oh, I am really liking this so far. I dived into the last part called the business of heaven and I am enthralled by some of the writings. Short excerpts of C.S. Lewis - one for each day. I will let you know more as I continue reading :-)Just keeps getting better! I only wish that this wasn't a borrowed copy, as I feel an almost desperate need to underline, highlight and turn down page corners!! I think I must find a used copy of this to buy for myself :-)

    2. This book has four sections, so I will write about each as I finish it. -Surprised by Joy (finished March 5, 2010): C.S. Lewis' life story is a compelling testimony of what it is to move from unbelief to belief. It's pretty fascinating to compare C.S. Lewis' childhood in the early 20th century to the world in which children and early adolescents grow up today. Much has changed, to say the least. And yet, as others have mentioned here, Lewis' longing for Joy (and the One who supplies it to us) st [...]

    3. Surprised by Joy: It was very drawn out with far more details about his childhood, college days, and the time in the war than I really wanted to know. I was expecting "Surprised by Joy" to be about how he went from an atheist to a Christian, but the little details--that I'm sure were important milestones for him--were dull to me. Somehow he went astray, drifting away like most of us do: without being cultivated and nourished. It wasn't until chapter 8 (2 chapters from the end) that it got really [...]

    4. So far, the only one in this collection that I've read is Surprised by Joy. I wasn't a huge fan of this one; although Lewis has generally had the reputation of making the doctrines of Christianity understandable to even the "common" man, he did not seem quite able to do so with his concept of Joy here. The idea seemed very vague and ill-defined throughout the book, which is a problem because it was what Lewis intended the subject of the book to be. He also seemed somewhat hurried in his writing; [...]

    5. Having just finished rereading Surprised by Joy for the second time, I am all the more struck with its profundity. I have little in common with this man who lived before me. Yet his pursuit of "Joy" resonates deeply. Lewis's reasoning transcends the common memoir preoccupation with self to say something much more meaningful. Highly recommended.

    6. So far I have read Surprised by Joy in this collection, and I loved it! Lewis's life is completely engrossing and he manages to write about himself without seeming pretentious or overly literary (although he is sometimes difficult to understand). I guess I just love admiring the workings of a great mind as he tried to feel his way from unbelief to joy. A wonderful bildungsroman.

    7. I did not finish the book. The beginning was really interesting but the end did not hold my attention. Maybe I'll pick it up again sometime.

    8. This book lead me to read many other books by CS Lewis and wonder more about how his life relates to the many lives around me.
