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 event he smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell. Unabridged. Read by Robert Whitfield. 3 CDs. 3 hours.

From Hell to the outskirts of Heaven
Date:August 5, 2011
This work was excellent. I found it interesting that the author put forward the idea that there exists degrees, and levels of quality, to one's afterlife existence in these two destinations. Besides that, there is still work , bother, stuggle, and discomfort to be had in both places-- dependent on the extent to which one is bound to one's earthly personality, habits, etc. I appreciate d this lesson regarding the hereafter a great deal. While I never imagined anything like the presentation made, it somehow rang true.

Very well done - you'll be pausing the CD to think about the truths and observations in this work. One of those great books that can be enjoyed quickly and lightly, or waded into for deep and life-changing material.

Review 3 for The Great Divorce - Unabridged Audiobook on CD

I love the story that is told. However, I did not completely enjoy the speaker's reading of it (I did not like the some of the accents).However, I still would highly recommend this because it makes great listening during traffic jams and the like. Exercising our suspension of disbelief (e.g. bad accents), we can get lost in this wonderful recording.
