Book Review: The Great Divorce

Gee, it's been a while since I've posted a book review.  Reading has not received priority around here, even when I had a great book like C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce.  This book is a study on the differences between Heaven and Hell when measured within the characteristics of a person.  It doesn't go into too much detail about the physical surroundings of each place, but really focuses on what keeps a person from accepting Heaven when they have every chance to.  This book will make you think.  And like all C.S. Lewis works, the words open up a pathway to delve deeper into the thoughts and ideas he presents.  Good stuff.  My sister mentioned that this book would probably be better well-known if the title was different, and I tend to agree.  I had no idea what it would be about but picked it up because I like C.S. Lewis.  What could be a better title?  Get Off the Bus?  No.  You Just Need to Give Up Your Selfish Ways?  No.  Choose Heaven or Hell?  Would those make you want to read it?  The original title is sounding better and better now.
