I just realized we don’t have a thread for the Narnia books. :o So here it is.November 5, 2008 at 12:52 am #44448
HOW in the WORLD did we overlook them???????? *is shocked beyond belief*
Alrighty, I was first introduced to Narnia when Mom and Dad bought the FotF CD dramatization and we listened to it as a family in the winter. I’d only been reading book books for a bit, and had just started keeping my Archives (my list of every book I read, which went rampant last summer with the R.A.T.!). I was astonished to find talking animals and magical elements in a Christian story and was fascinated because I LOVED that sort of thing, having been a wild child since birth and devoting all my toys to hours of play wherein I made them talk and have adventures. To my further glee, I discovered they were based on books. Which we had. 8O I immediately dusted off the series, which had been hiding in a bookcase nook ever so long, and began to gobble them up. I remember happy hours spent reading under a coffee table where there was a heater vent and even back then, getting rather cramped.
I finished the LWW on New Year’s Day when I was 10, and since then I’ve had it read aloud to me twice, have read the whole series, and have had to read to me. I know what fauns are, I probably got my obsession with little poofie goodies from Reepicheep and I have made C.S. Lewis the author who pops into my head when someone asks me my favorite, even tho’ I have many.November 5, 2008 at 8:56 pm #44449
Hey, what is everyone’s favorite Narnia book?November 5, 2008 at 9:44 pm #44450
Tough question, Sarah! How about I just say that I really like The Silver Chair, but that’s not a definite favorite.November 5, 2008 at 9:58 pm #44451
Ooh, that’s a good one! I’m thinking maybe The Magician’s Nephew but then I haven’t reread all the books yet, so I can’t say for sure.November 6, 2008 at 8:35 pm #44452
Voyage of the Dawn Treader is my favorite.November 7, 2008 at 9:56 pm #44453
I liked LWW, Horse and His Boy and The Last Battle.
That’s funny, a friend of mine doesn’t like VDT or Silver Chair!November 10, 2008 at 12:37 am #44454
I like Horse and his Boy and Voyage of the Dawn Treader.November 10, 2008 at 12:57 am #44455
VDT somehow seemed slapped together, at least a bit more scatterbrained than the other ones. But I can’t account for anyone not liking The Silver Chair…November 10, 2008 at 2:15 am #44456
Scatterbrained? Then it ought to be perfect for everybody on this forum!November 10, 2008 at 2:12 pm #44457
Thanks, Jordan. :lol:July 6, 2010 at 1:48 am #44458
I don’t really like the Horse and his Boy or the Silver Chair. I like MN, LWW, PC, and LB.
Oh, and of course, VODT.July 7, 2010 at 1:09 pm #44459
I LOVE all the books, but my absolute favorites are The Horse and His Boy and The Magician’s Nephew. (I used to like The Voyage of the Dawn Treader the most, but then I began to realize that the other books were really good too… lol.) Probably my least favorites are Prince Caspian and The Silver Chair. But, don’t get me wrong, I love them all!December 24, 2010 at 7:59 pm #44460
I’m not sure yet because I still have to take out the last book from the library. :oDecember 26, 2010 at 9:32 pm #44461
Today my mother and my father were watching The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe on YouTube. I watched with them but I really wanted to see Prince Caspian because I really like the battle in that one.
