It's short and intense. If you've recently experienced a loss of a close friend or family member, it can be deeply personal . Lewis questions his faith and all he believes to be real and makes some bizarre assertions initially.
If you're reading it as an intellectual pursuit, you should read The Problem of Pain
first. That's more of a theodicy and is quite good. It's written by an intellectual apologist (Lewis) who had not yet experienced an intense personal loss.
But after the death of his wife from cancer, he kept a journal in the midst of his bitter grief, which was later published as A Grief Observed
. In it, he throws much of what he wrote in The Problem of Pain out the window. The two make a short but great back-to-back read.
