A Grief Observed - C.S. Lewis I cam across the name of this book through another book. I always liked the way that CS Lewis analyzed topics of Christianity, and I thought I would find some wonderful insights here.

Unfortunately, this is ultimately more a journal than an analysis, and random theories and proclamations in the first dozen pages fall away to be replaced by others, with little reconciliation.

The discussion of marriage as having three parts: courtship, the married life, and bereavement opened some new ways of thinking for me, but in the end, I am not sure he even believed in this idea.

A short read, and he certainly has a wonderful ability to express thoughts and feelings that I can relate to, but I was hoping for a little more.
