Chesterton is fairly new to me, so I have little to say for that part, I’ve only read a few of his books (which I have liked very much, though not with the same intensity as Mr. Lewis).
Here’s my own hasty list of favorite CSL books –for what it’s worth.
I would also recommend, along with the autobiographical Surprised by Joy, that you consider the book Jack: A Life of C.S Lewis by George Sayer.
Wow, that was pretty hard. Not like storm-the-beach-at-Normandy hard, but, you know –not precisely easy.
I didn’t think about it too much. But I see that so many could easily go up in my list, while it’s hard to send any down. Plus, it’s almost impossible not to mention others, like The Four Loves and The Great Divorce, not to mention the other Narnia books. I guess that’s what makes a great author great.
So what’s your favorite C.S. Lewis work?
