Excellent reader. I bought this book due to the loss of someone very close to me. C.S. Lewis wrote this book after the loss of his wife, and documented in a journal his grieving.
The grieving process, though personal to each individual, is some what universal in how our mind responds to an event such as this.
I highly recommend.

If your life burst like a balloon and you want to be dead, because you can't believe the one you love has died, this book is for you. This is no poem. This is no nice story. This is your story after death kicks the crap out of you, takes your most priced possession, and leaves you gasping for breath. This is the grief book you are looking for.

this book has two ten minute introductions which i am not reviewing..
i have listened to this book several times now and its raw honesty takes my breath away
no easy answers here thank God, more of a journey through a sea of pain to.. Well the book is a hopeful one i believe and death doesn't have the last laugh.
if like me you haven't really experienced grief but know somebody who has this might help you understand
excellently read by Ralph Cosham.

I listened to this soon after my mum passed away and found it helpful. Listening again 3 months later I can identify with so much more with what CS Lewis writes. Especially about recalling what a person was like when they lived. I highly recommend this book.
Helpful for any kind of loss or heartbreak. I liked this book because grief is so universal and it's nice to hear in someone else's words, so accurately describe how it feels from inside the pain. It made me feel less alone and more comforted. It would be a good book to give to family and friends of a person who is grieving a loss and/or heartbreak, so they know how to behave and what to expect from someone in the grieving process, especially the part where it says that you (the grieved) is glad to have family/friends around but wishes to be more or less left alone while in company. I think at one point he writes something like, I need their company but I wish they would let me be, that they would talk, just not to me, but among themselves.
