“They say Aslan is on the move. Perhaps he has already landed,” whispered the Beaver. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delightful strain of music had just floated by. And Lucy got that feeling when you realise it’s the beginning of summer. So, deep in the bewitched land of Narnia, the children set out on the most exciting adventure ever written. – Goodreads
My Rating: 5/5
A classic that will live on forever.
How C. S. Lewis fits such a huge story into 171 pages I will never know. During the battle towards the end I felt like I had been in Narnia for several hours but on finishing the book it took only one and a half – I suppose it is true that time spent in Narnia is not the same as time in our world.
The only issue I have with this story is that the second half of the book feels a little rushed. So much happens and there isn’t much of a climax.
I will continue to reread these books for the rest of my life, buying new copies as my current ones fall apart!
