C.S. Lewis's famous inspirational work on the nature of love. C.S. Lewis's famous work on the nature of love divides love into four categories: Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity. The first three are loves which come naturally to the human race. Charity, however, the Gift-love of God, is divine in its source and expression, and without the sweetening grace of this supernatural love, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.

Good but nothing special. I wasn't too impressed by it, as I didn't really get as much out of it as I had expected. All Lewis writes is true, but it's all stuff I had already thought about myself.
