Publisher's Summary

C.S. Lewis's dazzling allegory about heaven and hell - and the chasm fixed between them - is one of his most brilliantly imaginative tales, as he takes issue with the ideas in William Blake's 'The Marriage of Heaven and Hell'.In a dream, the narrator boards a bus on a drizzly afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations, from the disgruntled, ghostly inhabitants of Hell to the angels and souls who dwell on the plains of Heaven.This powerful, exquisitely written fantasy is one of C.S. Lewis's most enduring works of fiction and a profound meditation on good and evil.

What the Critics Say

"There is attractive imagery and amusing satire... There are exciting speculations... Mr. Lewis rouses curiosity about life after death only to sharpen awareness of this world." (The Guardian)

    "Another great insight to the Christian life"

    Made me think a fresh about the reality of life after death . It brought home to me if one wants to live in heaven, one needs to desire and want to live the Christian ideal of loving God and neighbour, and the book gave an insight to the challenge involved in try to do so.

    "Christian Fantasy"

    I read this book 40 years ago and was really impressed with it. I don't think it will be everyone's cup of tea, but as a Christian book it reveals the essence of the Christian Faith i.e. It is not by our own good works we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven, there are things that we cling onto despite how they hold us back etc.
    It is a fantasy book with Christian truths written into it.
