Item description for Great Divorce (Unabrdg) by C. S. Lewis & Robert Whitfield...

An allegorical fantasy about a bus ride between hell and heaven--a round trip for some but not for others--raises questions about the details of the underworld and about the very nature of good and evil.

Publishers Description

In The Great Divorce C.S. Lewis again employs his formidable talent for fable and allegory. The writer, in a dream, boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations and comes to significant realizations about the ultimate consequences of everyday behavior. This is the starting point for a profound meditation upon good and evil. "If we insist on keeping Hell (or even earth) we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell."

Reviews - What do customers think about Great Divorce (Unabrdg)?

PURGATORY!! That's not Christian   Mar 19, 2007
Writing style was interesting enough and content mysterious enough to make me keep turning the pages, but just as I hit the 5th chapter, I started to wonder if they were in a "Purgatory", and SURE ENOUGH... CS Lewis says "PURGATORY", that was enough for me! What an unbiblical notion!!

Probably one of my favorite books now  Mar 8, 2007
Short and sweet allegory that can be read in a day. I know that it's intended as fiction, but it really said a lot about human nature and hinted at what heaven might be like. It's been a struggle throughout my life to find a description of heaven that makes any sort of sense to my post-modern mind, and I think this comes really, really close. And in the end, I think the question it's asking the reader is, "So what character are you going to be like?" It's a book I recommend to readers from all kind of backgrounds if they've ever wondered about the afterlife.
Very Intriguing  Mar 8, 2007
I love CS Lewis and had never read this one but it has now become my favorite. He gives an intriguing and insightful look into the afterlife and into the possibility that the most recognizable sins are quite possibly not the most difficult to overcome. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially Lewis fans.
Make Me Rethink The Concept Of Hell  Feb 8, 2007
"I think earth, if chosen instead of Heaven, will turn out to have been, all along a region of in Hell: and earth, if put second to Heaven, to have been from the beginning a part of Heaven itself".

First time I thought of hell is something like torturing chambers, this concept is challenging to the thought of "God is Love". If God is good, how come He can stand knowing that people being tortured in "His" Hell. CS Lewis summarize the answer to this question, with his line: 'There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, in the end, "Thy will be done."'. Personally, I saw the impact of people 'being left alone by God' on May 1998 during Jakarta riot, they can raise "hell" by themselves.

What CS Lewis described of Hell (we do not get to Heaven yet, but a glimpse of it since the character in the book woke up) is a bunch of people "being left alone" to their want and get 'him/herself' as the center. I caught a glimpse of this kind of 'hell' when I read one of Philip Yancey and Dr. Paul Brand book regarding a leper person, the disease is already severe, it devoured his senses, he lost his skin-touch sensation, he is mute and deaf, one eye blind and the only connection to outside himself is his one cataract eye that is worsening. If that physical condition can be an analogy of what happen in spiritual condition, being left alone by God and cut off from the source of life (God Himself) because that what we choose, that is surely one hell of a hell. Does it diminish the misery compare to tortured chambers? I don't think so.

In this book, CS Lewis, played several scenarios of "me and myself" as the center from the people who chose hell. You can be surprised of some of the scenarios played, some scenarios that we thought to be a value in human condition, but if extrapolated in forever lifeline can be utterly self-centered. One thing got me wondering, even though it is an imaginary story, but the vivid description will get you wonder "where the hell did CS Lewis thought of this of?"
Outstanding--beautiful work--powerful  Jan 20, 2007
Another important work; few put words to print as Lewis is able. Through a dream: The journey to heaven; leaving earth. A fantasy depiction of the after-world. Outstanding--beautiful work--powerful. "A solely imaginative supposal" of what's to come--the purpose is to deliver a moral message.

We follow his journey as first person: We meet travelers on the way; the righteous forms and the lost ghosts. The story is set between worlds (purgatory?): Exquisite, harsh, interesting, hard (literally), and in a way entertaining. We observe the learning of truth through conversation and the choice to make the right changes. We discover what we thought was righteousness and the abandonment of God (apostatism). The lost are caught up with the past world; they are blind.

Christ is the only way-there is no other-believe in Him; believe as a child believes. Leave worldly things behind.

Wish you well
