Summary:

C. S. Lewis reworks the timeless myth of Cupid and Psyche into an enduring piece of contemporary fiction in this novel about the struggle between sacred and profane love. Set in the pre-Christian world of Glome on the outskirts of Greek civilization, it is a tale of two princesses: the beautiful Psyche, who is loved by the god of love himself, and Orual, Psyche's unattractive and embittered older sister, who loves Psyche with a destructive possessiveness. Her frustration and jealousy over Psyche's fate sets Orual on the troubled path of self-discovery. Lewis's last work of fiction, this is often considered his best by critics.

    C.S. Lewis never fails to deliver! This book is a delight and the reader's voice was well suited to her part.

  • Bruce Bachmeier

    His writing kept me interested the whole time, and the reader's voice didn't annoy toooo much. So glad to have experienced this book!

  • Robert Manning

    I agree with the two prior reviewers. In addition, the reader was excellent.

    This CS Lewis book was interesting and informative. The tale reads live a Greek Legend in a more recent time. One can picture life in the castle and with great word pictures Lewis takes us on a journey through the life of the Princess/Queen. Lewis’s talent for quickening the imagination is tremendous. I found this a good book to listen to, with a veiled presentation of the Gospel.
