  1. I LOVE The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. It was the first novel-length book I can ever remember reading.

    On the opposite side of the spectrum for my love for that book is the way I feel about the Prince Caspian novel. Aside from the grief and pain of the siblings arriving back in Narnia after 1,000+ years of being gone, there really isn’t any kind of emotional arc except Lucy’s faith conflict.

    I don’t remember the battles in the book very well at all, except that they happen. Lewis, I think, glossed over them because he was writing for the children of his era.

    Caspian and Susan never have a romance. That much I remember clearly. Caspian is supposed to be much younger than Ben Barnes, and as I recall Susan is all of thirteen or so in this story.

    Aside from that, I feel that the movie is far more interesting and entertaining. I like the return of the White Witch (done far better here than in Voyage of the Dawn Treader), I like the battle of the magical and fantastic versus the mundane and pragmatic, and I like the theme of belief and courage in the face of adversity.

    And Reepicheep will never not be wonderful.

  2. It would be cool if you did a review of The Voyage of The Dawn Treader, the third Narnia movie (there are seven books by the way). There are talks about making the Silver Chair. I hope that they do and they at the very least make The Magician’s Nephew, one of my favorite Narnia books. I can have my hopes and dreams.

  3. The funniest thing with the Narnia films is that not only did people not know about the other books but only people who have Googled it or read them know that the lion the witch and the wardrobe isn’t the start of the story The Magician’s Nephew is set before the events of the lion the witch and the wardrobe having the boy in this book be the professor and explaining the whole of the realm of Narnia. the magicians nephew did come out after the lion the witch and the wardrobe but in box sets of all the books (like I had) its labelled as the first book so I read them in that order I really want to see this one as a film as the book is my favourite out of all of them. Here’s hoping they are going to make it.

  4. Isn’t an ex mocada kinda unavoidable when God has a physical body
