All My Road Before Me : The Diary of C.S. Lewis, 1922-1927 Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of All My Road Before Me : The Diary of C.S. Lewis, 1922-1927

The early Lewis still gaining the second of his three(!) first class degrees at Oxford, hoping to become a don. In some ways a very candid insight into his pre-Christian formative years. Interesting asides on John Betjeman, one of his early pupils. Also a disturbing account of 'the Doc', a family friend, who goes mad before dying. Some humour, some philosophy, and surprisingly active social life.
