The Great Divorce is a short novel about heaven and hell. It is not meant as a theological work, but rather a tale of a dream. Still, it is a masterpiece of irony, perception and of human folly.
I listened to it in a sitting, and relistened again. Suppose those souls in hell are free to leave at anytime? After spending many years in the torment of hell, will they freely choose to abandon that existance for an eternity of joy and bliss? Apparently most would indeed choose hell. Even when they have loved ones from heaven seek patiently and tirelessly to help them leave hell, they choose misery.
In the past year I have lost two loved ones. The Great Divorce is more than a great comffort, it inspires me to view life with a different perspective.
