Reading time: 2 days
What I loved best: All of it. Seriously.
This isn’t really a book review, because I can’t give much away for those who have yet to read it. Even in my other Narnian reviews, I gave a few things away.
I put off reading this, because it’s the last book in the series. And I knew it meant the end. In fact, the very first sentence starts, “In the last days of Narnia…”
It was very bittersweet to me. I just did not want my reading journey to end. Yes, they’re written as children’s books, but filled with wonderful quotes. Yes, I’m a mid-life mom, but I love fables and stories. Yes, I cried. A lot. I’m terribly sentimental, and just to know this was the last of new Narnian adventures for me made me sad.
But how it turned out… well… it’s Narnia. Full of wonderful, magical creatures. Daring adventures and battles. Lessons to be learned and characters to count on.
I can only describe it as Pure Joy, that I have finished the journey… and get to go again, any time I want.
C.S. Lewis is absolutely magical in his writing. There is no greater, more inspiring, ability than to take one’s breath away by the words you write. I recommend all the Narnia stories, but especially this one.
And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
