Absolutely superb Carpenter has written a fascinating biography of a very misunderstood literary group CS Lewis JRR Tolkien Charles Williams and many others including Lewis s brother Warnie and Tolkien s son Christopher in later years met regularly in Lewis s Magdalen rooms in Oxford to discuss philosophy and theology as well as to read aloud their most recent literary endeavors In one chapter Carpenter draws from diaries and letters in order to recreate what might have been a typical Inklings meeting This chapter seemingly brings these men back from the dead so alive and real were these people to me So invested was I in the conversation that many times I wanted to chime in and add my own opinion I have learned so much from this book CS Lewis who was known to friends as Jack was for me merely the author of the Narnia series books I had read and cherished as a child Jack Lewis however was a deeply conflicted man a sworn atheist turned dogmatic Christian Although much of his philosophy is vastly unappealing to me Carpenter gives one the sense that Lewis above all else was a fierce and loyal friend Afterall Lewis was the man who brought many of these seemingly disparate authors together Charles Williams a man I had honestly never heard of was greatly admired and loved by Lewis if not by Tolkien Williams whose fame never reached great heights lived a fascinating life made all the much interesting by his involvement with the Golden Dawn the same society Yeats was a part of and his compassionate philosophy Tolkien s ideas regarding myth and dedication to what he deemed the holy task of subcreation spurned the writing of the Lord of the Rings a series which took him over ten years to finish If not for Lewis s enthusiastic praise and criticism it is doubtful whether Tolkien would have even finished the series I am now excited than ever to take a class in the fall revolving around this iconic Oxford group I am greatly looking forward to reading their works with the new knowledge this book has bestowed on me

A slightly rambling account of the Inklings focusing mainly on C S Lewis with Tolkien and Charles Williams as supporting actors It s always pleasant to spend time with these people even if Charles Williams was certifiably insane The only issue I have with this book is the strangely detached and critical attitude Humphrey Carpenter takes with respect to C S Lewis s writing This happens in the last uarter of the book completely unexpectedly and it cost this book its five star rating Honestly I m not that interested in what Humphrey Carpenter says about Lewis s writing I ve read most of it and I have my own opinions thank you very much Not as good as his biography of Tolkien which is definitive
