A Grief Observed

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A classic work on grief, A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis’s honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. Written after his wife’s tragic death as a way of surviving the “mad midnight moments,” A Grief Observed an unflinchingly truthful account of how loss can lead even a stalwart believer to lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and the inspirational tale of how he can possibly regain his bearings.

Kindle sample is useless!

I can't believe that a "sample" is the foreword. I don't care about the foreword- I care about what the author wrote! I'll go to a real book store & flip through to see if I want it. I'll make the purchase there.

Very Real & Very Strong

To this day nobody, in my opinion, has encapsulated the feeling of deep loss as well as Lewis does in this book. It is so deep and so stunningly honest. One line alone sums up the beauty and gravity of this book and the event it discusses: "Her absence is like the sky, spread over everything." Pure beauty on a page.

A thought spoken.....a voice heard.

It was if my thoughts and feelings were spoken out loud and they where heard by C. S. Lewis and he wrote them down. Waiting until my spirit was open enough to hear the truth of the pain, to read and surrender and accept the loss. Thank you, Jack. For my beloved, my brother John.
