"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)

Really, this book leans towards five stars, but it takes me so long to come back to it and reimmerse in it; once I do, though, it is so good. The writing style is very far removed from Narnia, and I remember trying to read it once as a younger person and not liking it at all. However, I came back to it during my C. S. Lewis class and discovered a great appreciation for the characters, especially Orual, the ugly older sister of the lovely and beloved Psyche.

This is definitely worth investing some time into. I come back to it every couple of years. ( )

I listened to the audiobook.

I was warned most people don't get it the first time; that warning was just. While the book had enough scene-level momentum to keep me going, I don't really have a clue what Lewis was trying to say. I get the feeling the book is extremely well constructed — I just have no idea what he built.

So I didn't really find it a gripping tale. It was perhaps too heavily character-driven vs plot-driven for my taste. ( )

Exceptional Lewis, using myth from the ancients to bring forth deep passions and the consequences of our own choices. The story is a retelling of Cupid and Psyche found in the Greek tale "Metamorphoses", but with Lewis' talent to entice you into the weaving labyrinth of kings, queens and gods that pours floodlights on our own emotions.

I simply cannot encourage enough for all those of thoughtful, reflective bent, to read this engrossing tale. ( )

This seems to be the right time of year to pick out a ton of books all focused on retelling old Greek myths!

Perennial favorite C. S. Lewis went out of his way to retell the story of Psyche and Cupid from the PoV of Orual, the ugly sister, and it's a very well-told tale. He admits he uses the original as a template and goes on to make a much more psychological and grounded tale than the original, and he pulls it off delightfully, full of Orual's obsessive angst, her striving to be better, her complaints against the gods, and eventually the god's replies.

More than the original, I think, this retelling captures the darker and more intricate differences and pulls off an entirely different level of storytelling. There's the surface story, the tale told by the Fox about the actual Greek legend, and the under-story which is a purely psychological exploration of all the secrets that the original legend tells us.

It's very Psyche-logical. :)

Out of all of Lewis' works, I think I like this the best. :) ( )

(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.
