Luke Brown replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis is always a great re-read.  It only takes a few hours to read and it's got great insights in it.  It's a religious book, so if you're into that, as I am, it's a great book!  "
