Continuing on my journey through the book series of The Chronicles of Narnia, I sat down to enjoy the book with the title that most of the population has heard of – The Lion , The Witch, and The Wardrobe.
By this book, I am now used to C.S. Lewis’s talk as he writes this book in his manner of ‘grandfatherlyism’ (“Why yes, Edmond was surprised- just like we left him in the last chapter!” and “Oh, boys and girls, what would you do if this happened to you?”) I actually am starting to enjoy this style of writing and imagine him as a loving grandfather excited to share his stories with children eager to listen.
This book so closely follows the movie that I applaud Disneys producers for respecting the family of C.S. Lewis and holding on to the truth that made this book the remarkable legend it is today. There were times in the book where things that were said by the children or by the talking animals that I was sure that was the exact wording that they used in the movie.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to moving on to book 3, The Horse and His Boy.
