Polly must have had some bad experiences in church growing up. I mean how dare Lewis try to cram his agenda down the throats of the helpless readers. Fortunely, this review does nothing of the sort! It steers clear of overarching genralisations about the attitudes of all non-believers and never even approaches an over-simplification of theological themes. She was right about one thing, I was wishing I had my sick-bag handy.
