"A repackaged edition of the revered author's retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche -- what he and many others regard as his best novel. C. S. Lewis -- the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics -- brilliantly reimagines the story of Cupid and Psyche. Told from the viewpoint of Psyche's sister, Orual, Till We Have Faces is a brilliant examination of envy, betrayal, loss, blame, grief, guilt, and conversion. In this, his final -- and most mature and masterful -- novel, Lewis reminds us of our own fallibility and the role of a higher power in our lives"--… (més)

I really enjoyed the retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth, and Orual was a great character. And I appreciated some of the concepts about faith and divinity, insofar as they weren’t specifically Christian. But the ending took a deep dive into Christian theology, even if not explicitly so, which kind of marred for me what would have been an excellent book. ( )

This is one of those books you need to take at a slow pace, preferably in a group or with a guide. There’s a lot to it just on the surface, and I can tell there’s also a lot deeper down. I’ll come back to it sometime. ( )

I have never read a book by C. S. Lewis that didn't make me think. This book made me think, but even more, it made me feel guilty. Because I am guilty. Orual was me- in a way. I think I'm ugly, I definitely have bad ideas about my self worth, and my love for other people sometimes is unhealthy for me (I am not self-destructive, though). That got me thinking about other people (like Orual) that have the same tendencies and how, really, it all comes back to abuse and education. This is just a meandering plethora of thoughts that has almost nothing to do with the story...

Back to the book- I think that this is definitely C. S. Lewis's greatest work for adults. I couldn't tell you half of what happened, but it made me change myself. It was, in a way, a tender mercy from God telling me that HE is the answer. He is always the answer. And change is possible. I loved the Fox, Bardia (?), and Psyche. I couldn't help loving Psyche. I initially read this because of [b:Rose in Bloom|17533|Rose in Bloom (Eight Cousins, #2)|Louisa May Alcott|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1344269387s/17533.jpg|2080617] by Louisa May Alcott in which the character talks at length about this myth. I was not disappointed, and I was glad for the time that it gave me to do take emotional inventory of myself. ( )

'O Reino de Glome', situado nas montanhas da fronteira com a antiga Grécia, é um reino bárbaro que pratica um culto obscuro à cruel deusa do amor, Ungit, e ao seu filho, o deus da montanha, a que os gregos chamam Afrodite e Cupido. Quando Trom, o rei, casa novamente e dessa relação nasce Psique, a sua irmã mais velha, a princesa Orual, está longe de imaginar que esse nascimento irá modificar a sua vida e o curso da história.
Psique é de uma beleza inigualável, tão bela que o povo se esquece do culto a Ungit. A cruel deusa exige que a princesa seja oferecida em sacrifício ao deus da montanha e os acontecimentos precipitam-se… ( )

(Food for the gods must always be found somehow, even when the land starves.)
Now mark yet again the cruelty of the gods. There is no escape from them into sleep or madness, for they can pursue you into them with dreams. Indeed you are then most at their mercy. The nearest thing we have to a defence against them (but there is no real defence) is to be very wide awake and sober and hard at work, to hear no music, never to look at earth or sky, and (above all) to love no one.
Weakness, and work, are two comforts the gods have not taken from us.
To love, and to lose what we love, are equally things appointed for our nature. If we cannot bear the second well, that evil is ours.
The sight of the huge world put mad ideas into me; as if I could wander away, wander for ever, see strange and beautiful things, one after the other to the world's end.
