The A-Z of C.S. Lewis Book Review

 About the Book

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis's death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis' works, from his literary criticism to Narnia

C. S. Lewis's work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work—his children's stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life
and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man—written in 1943 and described as "almost my favorite"—to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life. (Goodreads)

My Review

I am a C.S. Lewis fan, though I haven't read all of his books I loved what I have read. This book is basically a Lewis encyclopedia of his writings and life. I think this book would be a great companion while reading any of his books, it gives detail on every aspect of his books. It lists places and people in his books and explains the who, the what, the where, and the why. While this book was not what I was expecting it's a great book to have on hand! 
I recommend to anyone who is reading C.S. Lewis and to those who like details!
