    • This is the second time I've read these excerpts from the diaries of Warren Lewis, the brother of C.S. Lewis. It's a difficult book to find -- I got this copy from the St. Paul Public Library via interlibrary loan -- but well worth it for those interested in the life and works of C.S. Lewis. It's also an interesting read for me because Warren Lewis' personality seems to be so much like my personality. Being a diary, this book doesn't contain everything that one might wish to read. Although his b [...]

    • Warren Lewis kept a diary for most of his adult life. This book is pulled from thousands of pages of his diaries and consolidated into a manageable book. I very much enjoyed reading the diary entries, and found a wonderful view into the Lewis family through Warnie. As I mentioned in my review of C.S. Lewis' diaries "All My Road Before Me", I enjoyed reading about the same event and then looking it up in the other brother's diary!A sweet and interesting habit that both brother's had was to give t [...]

    • It was more of an intimate portrait of Warren Lewis than it was of Jack since Warren was out of the closely guarded loop when it came to the precise nature of the Lewis household at The Kilns (as is the reader but we can surmise). His retirement turned out to be not all he had hoped for, at least for many years, which was a great injustice. I hope that, like Christopher Robin and Pooh, Warnie and Jack are together in the Enchanted Place.

    • This book reads even better on a second reading. And the key to its gems (and there are many) is letting the author be himself. I found the first time around that for some reason I couldn't accept Warnie Lewis for who he was. I had based my image of him solely on being C.S. Lewis's brother, and I expected to find myself entering into Jack's world. I remember that after a series of entries in which Warnie was depressed I put the book aside for a while --not because I don't myself experience depre [...]

    • Amazing book. Warren has possibly become my favorite Inkling.

    • I thoroughly enjoyed this from start to finish. I've read many bios of C S Lewis over the years, and just about all his works many times, but this simple, elegant diary introduced a whole new level of understanding. Perhaps that is simply the brotherly view, but it is intimate and of course rounds out the picture a bit by showing us just who this Warnie was. A real person with real thoughts (very sharp incisive ones too), and a different, but close, POV on the whole living situation at the Kilns [...]

    • There is a growing population of CS Lewis devotees who must read anything and everything about him. Luckily for them/myself, Lewis' brother, Warren, was himself a committed satellite constantly revolving around the life of Jack. The book offers insights to their relationship and settles the debate about Warren's faith. Although Warren was an alcoholic who's binges would land him in rehab from time to time, he outlived his brother by 9 years. His diary reveals the loss he experienced from Jack's [...]

    • This was a fascinating and inciteful look into the lives of C.S. Lewis and his brother. I must have made about 20 notes from this book on topics, (and people) to research further into. Major Warren and his brother were very close. The Major was an author in his own right, authoring 5 or 6 books on French history. I really want to read more on C.S. Lewis now.

    • C.S. Lewis' brother has a distinct and very descriptive writing style.

    • Recommended for anyone who thinks of Warren Lewis as "Jack Lewis' alcoholic brother." Yes, he was that--but in these diaries, he comes across as a gentle, insightful man who did the best he could with the problems he had. In many ways, he seems more thoughtful than his brother, (and he, too, wrote many books!), and the picture of the times and the extended circle of intellects surrounding Jack and Warren is compelling.
