This powerful and exquisitely written fantasy is one of C. S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction. It is a profound meditation on good and evil and on what God truly offers us. In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon in Hell and embarks on an amazing voyage to Heaven. Anyone in Hell is invited on board, and anyone is welcome to remain in Heaven if he or she so chooses. But do we really want to live in Heaven? This dazzling allegory about Heaven and Hell is one of Lewis’ most brilliantly creative tales, where we discover that the gates of Hell are actually locked from the inside.

    This was an abstract story that took me a bit to really get into, because I didn’t know what was happening. But once I kind of figured it out, it was an enjoyable read. There is a drop Ness to it that might require reading a second time.
