Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

Kind of a short list this month. There were several other books that I started but didn't care to finish. Here are the ones I did:

The Pilgrim's Regress by C.S Lewis. This is an allegorical story of Lewis' own journey to faith. Very good, although some parts were a bit complex and hard to follow. I've seen a book that helps explain this book (sort of like cliff notes), and I might read that.

The Missing by Beverly Lewis. Second in the Seasons of Grace trilogy. This was good, although I have to say it didn't leave much suspense for the next book. Unless she is planning on a huge twist or something in third.

Intervention by Robin Cook. Not his best by far.

Darcy's Story by Janet Aylmer. I've seen several "P&P through Darcy's eyes" books, but this was the first that I actually decided to read. Mostly because it was written in the same chaste style as the original P&P. I think most P&P fans would like this, it almost feels like reading the original again, just from a different view.
