chronicled my thoughts as I read through it with my son I don t know how easy it is for y all to access the record of those here on Goodreads, but if you re looking for a detailed account of my thoughts on the book, you can look there.I ll say this I ve read a lot of books to my little boy these last couple years, and I can honestly say that This book is among the best Good, tight writing, good description Good action Also there s not a lot of dead space or trashy empty dialogue that just seems to be there to take up space That s become a particular peeve lately And when you re reading a book aloud, it becomes really obvious The British slang will be a stumbling block to some But it s not too bad And there were a few slight pieces of sexism that I ignored, skipped over, or re worded on the fly But honestly, this book was written 60 years ago, and you need to cut it a little slack because of that And in my opinion, it only needs a little slack Truth be told, I ve read books written this year that have ten times the sexism this one does Also, I d like to make it clear that this is the FIRST book of the Narnia Chronicles This is where you start the series I m sorry if you read them in the wrong order, but if you did, it s better than you admit it now, come to grips, and move on with your life knowing the truth If you ve ever wondered which literary world would be the

their life in this world it was as one remembers a dreamThe real world is boring it s mundane, unimaginative and dry So humans create fantasy as a means of escape We watch movies or go to the theatre to see somethinginteresting than the standard realities of the everyday We paint pictures and gaze up at the stars We play video games and roleplay We dream Authors like C.S Lewis and J.K Rowling show us this miserable world they show us its tones of grey Then underneath it all they reveal something spectacular they reveal fantasy So we have four rather ordinary children about to embark on an extraordinary adventure As a child I used to always daydream I ve always been somewhat introverted and would prefer imagining faraway places than existing in the now I still do this as an adult And this is why I love fantasy so much because it is so immersive it literally takes my mind away Lucy, Susan, Edward and Peter are the lucky ones When they stumble across the wardrobe, the gateway into ainteresting realm, they experience something spectacularShe did not shut it properly because she knew that it is very silly to shut oneself into a wardrobe, even if it is not a magic oneSure, there s a war going on And, certainly, there s an evil witch going around murdering people But, for me, that d be a price worth paying For in Narnia there is also Aslan and a whole bunch of interesting characters There is hope, magic and companionship The wise old Aslan though is the star of the show He sacrifices himself for his friends, for his people Though one issue I have with the book, and one that makes me very much aware of the text as a construct, is the questions over why Aslan actually needed to the four children He pretty much deals with the problems by himself There s prophecy involved, but on a plot level he clearly could have sorted this mess out without any outside interference I ve seen a lot of hate over these books because of the Christian allegories involved in the storytelling Now I find this somewhat stupid I m not a Christian, far from it, but you can t really criticise a book because of this It s incredibly na ve It would be like judging Jane Eyrebased on its feminism aspects or Shakespeare s exploration of colonialism inThe Tempest It s silly This book is, undeniable, full of Christian dogmatism But it s what the author wanted it to be If you read Tolkien s work there are so many allusions the world wars this doesn t affect the overall storytelling It s simply what is there Read this with an open mind, as an English Literature student, I read the bible I don t believe the words inside, but I can still enjoy the experience And this story is no different Take it for what it isWrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no ,When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring againAnd that s something special I do, however, much prefer the works of Tolkien I feel that his writing isuniversal in terms of age audience With this though, I m very much aware of it as a children s book The prose is designed to sound like a children s bedtime story in places That s not exactly a bad thing though I love Narnia but I can, at least from my perspective, objectively say that Tolkien was a better writer Though what Narnia does have is Aslan It s hard not to Aslan Wouldn t it be just wonderful if he met Gandalf Could you imagine the stories those two could share I m dreaming again.Facebook Twitter Insta Academia
