C. S. Lewis: A Companion and GuideReview:
‘It is without question the most important reference work on Lewis yet published and... will never be entirely superseded.’
Times Literary Supplement
‘Full of accurate scholarship, a definitive work in the most literal sense, this may well prove to be the last word on his subject.’
‘It is, by any standards, an outstanding achievement. Hooper has pioneered what is almost a new literary genre. It is beautifully produced – and with not a dull sentence in it.’
‘Nine hundred pages of true refreshment of the spirit. Nothing is missing.’
