This is the third book in the biographical trilogy. It covers the years 1945 to his death in 1963. The other two books cover 1898 to 1918 and 1919 to 1945. The author, Harry Lee Poe, is an authority on the life and times of C. S. Lewis. Poe has spent years researching, writing and teaching/lecturing about him. There are stories included in this series that have not been published anywhere else. It is conversational in some respects and felt at times like I was reading a personal diary. The books are very detailed. It is rare to find a biography this intriguing and engaging. I loved the flow of the stories moving from one right into the next. I did not find that it dragged at all. Lewis life is utterly fascinating and his conversion to Christianity inspires me deeply. Lewis met and knew the most intriguing people and spent time with other amazing writers throughout his life. I love the idea of a thinkerly group like the Inklings. I might have to find Poe’s book on this group, too. I loved my time with this third book and hope to read the other two soon.… (més)

I loved this book and if you are a fan of Lewis's or Tolkien you'll probably enjoy seeing Oxford too.

Becoming C. S. Lewis (1898–1918): A Biography of Young Jack Lewis by [Poe, Harry Lee]I found this book, Becoming C.S. Lewis, to be a well-researched volume. This is to be the first of three-volumes on the gentleman. It talks about the first 20 years of Lewis' life. His time in Northern Ireland, England and in WWI. He had his troubles during this time - his education was hit and miss, and difficulties with religion.

The author, Harry Lee Poe was able to use his research, including recent published letters, memoirs and more to show the details of Lewis' life,

I found this book to be very thorough and knowledgeable. I highly recommend it.

I was given this book by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Gorgeous book with photos of the university, the town, and landmarks in the lives of C. S. Lewis, Tolkien, and the other Inklings. Excellent text, too, good brief biographical studies of them.
