    One thought on “Shadowlands: Novel”

    1. I did not know this book was about C.S. Lewis. It is a really intense one, about a part of his life in which many changes appear in life, especially the most amazing one which is called love. There's a lot in this book about love, even if it comes in little steps and is lasting for a short time. And then there's room for pain, giving up, change and backtrack to understand that all was meant to be life.

    2. Questo è in assoluto il più bel libro che io abbia mai letto e anche se non si può considerare una ricostruzione reale della storia tra C.S.Lewis (autore de Le Cronache di Narnia) e la sua Joy ma più ispirato al film e la versione teatrale, è comunque molto profondo, intenso e commovente .fa riflettere molto e lascia un vuoto incredibile “Questa è la storia, vera, come spesso accade, di un uomo che si trovò davanti a una sorpresa quando aveva già superato l’età delle sorprese, un uo [...]

    3. This was the true story of CS Lewis and his wife Joy who died of cancer not long after they were married.The book was ok but the story didn't really grab me.

    4. Parto dal fatto che era da un pò volevo leggere questo libro, sia per il titolo che mi ispirava molto sia perchè me l'ha consigliato mia mamma e sono davvero contenta di essere riuscita finalmente a leggerlo. Che dire è meraviglioso, romantico, filosofico e interessante perchè parla della storia d'amore tra lo scrittore inglese C.S. Lewis e la poetessa americana Joy Gresham. Pieno di concetti e frasi molo interessanti, come il fatto che Dio è uno scultore e il dolore sarebbero i colpi infer [...]

    5. To tell you the truth, I didn't expect much from a book that is a novel "based on the screenplay by William Nicholson based on his stage play." However, I was pleasantly surprised by the . . . joy of reading it! A few editing issues--a repeated paragraph here and there, etc. Other than that, however, the writing was smooth and vivid.This book is based on the true story of C.S. Lewis' romance and marriage with Joy Davidman Gresham. Lewis, in his fifties and settled into the life of a university t [...]

    6. This book is an unlikely romance. In 1952 English author and lecturer, C.S. Lewis was set in his ways, living near Oxford where he was a don, writing and giving lectures. He begins a correspondence with an American fan and one day she writes that she is visiting England, "Can we meet for tea?" They meet and begin a friendship that changes his life. A very touching story.

    7. I love to read C.S. Lewis, and this book gives great insight into his life after meeting Joy Davidman Gresham. I love the movie so thought I would give the book a try. It is a book adaptation of a screenplay, so I didn't expect much, but as he grew to love Joy and her son, Douglas, I was captivated by the power of love, and its life changing effects.

    8. Tried reading this for the August Romance challenge. Didn't realise it was written from the screenplay of the film otherwise I would not have read it at all, although I have enjoyed the movie. It became immediately obvious that it came from the screenplay however because all that seemed to be missing were the stage directions.

    9. This book is a favorite from my youth. It's based on a film I also enjoyed. The film is based on the life of C. S. Lewis and his wife Joy. Their story reminds us that pain and happiness are connected when you love someone. You can't have one without the other. The intensity varies with the situation.

    10. Letto incuriosita dal commento che ne fa Agassi in Open. In effetti Agassi parla del film, non del libro, che pero' e' la trasposizione del film. "Bah" descrive bene l'interesse a seguito della lettura. Ora non sono curiosa di vedere il film.

    11. As a big CS Lewis fan I didn't know what to expect.Even better than the film, and arguably the most moving book I've ever read.A beautifully written love story and even more compelling as its based on CS Lewis' lifeoroughly recommend. :)

    12. C.S. Lewis wrote the Narnia children's books but never had a child. As Shadowlands begins he is a Christian who once was an atheist. Never having been interested in romance or feeling for companionship in his middle age. Then follows the true story of "Jack" Lewis's awakening to love and life.

    13. The author uses extensive vocabulary but isn't much of a story-teller. It's obvious this novel is third-hand information, based on a theater script based on a biography based on interviews.

    14. I did not expect to love this story so bad! this is a bizarre, yet beautiful and pure romance.Learnt a whole lot of things! Fans of CS Lewis's books should read this ASAP

    15. What an inspiring story that helps me to choose love and living life versus staying in the safe harbors of thoughts and ideas.
