Surprised By Laughter: The Comic World of C. S. Lewis by Terry Lindvall, PH.D.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through their BookSneeze program.  This book talks about the humor that is found in much of C. S. Lewis's work.  The author is trying to show us why Lewis found laughter so important, and what part it played in his work and in his life.  I was very excited to receive this book.  I have always been fascinated with Lewis.  I thought that this would be a great way to learn more about the man and his work.  I found this book very hard to get into.  The author has a Ph.D. and I felt that it was written more as a scholarly article than a book for the everyman.  I found the writing had to read, and became confused early on.  I was not able to finish the book.  I think that the author knows his stuff, but it was not conveyed very well.  I would give this book 2/5 stars.
