This book always made me want to #crymeariver when I was a kid—I didn‘t want the Narnian adventures to end!

I had a hard time getting into this one because the Narnia I loved so much was gone but the end of the book more than made up for it. Such a bittersweet ending. When everyone came back I may have gotten a little misty eyed. Susan has a non-ending but for fans of Neil Gaiman he has an interesting short story that takes a stab at this (The Problem with Susan).

I have just learned audiobooks are dangerous!!! Last year I got into the habit of listening to audiobooks while I mow the lawn but after today I may have to rethink that. Apparently I butt dialed the emergency line while I was mowing today so I got a nice surprise visit from the wonderful police. The officer was really nice about it but I still can't even wrap my head around how I managed to do that. Oooops!!

CoverToCoverGirl Oh no! Not really funny but I‘m still discreetly laughing. 🤭 (edited) 3mo
jackilynn @CoverToCoverGirl no worries. I may not have been laughing at the time but I am definitely laughing now lol 3mo

The last book of the series and I have problems. First, the Calormenes are back, so more troubling descriptions of the dark-skinned barbarians. Second, Susan is left completely alone in her own world, because she‘s now interested in boys and lipstick (I.e. no longer “innocent” enough for the reward of Narnia)?! That‘s FUCKED UP. I‘m disappointed that it ended like this, because the last few books were charming.

vlwelser I really disliked this one as well. The religious undertone was especially off putting to me. 7mo
Graywacke Good points. Strange last book, seemed to me the didactic side went overkill 7mo
BookwormM Loved this series as a child probably because I missed the religious motifs I have been meaning to revisit as an adult interested to see how I feel about it now 7mo
larah17 @vlwelser @Graywacke @BookwormM really, I didn‘t even mind the religious undertones in the rest of the series, but it really was overkill in this one, and I could only fit a fraction of it in the Litsy character count... but I‘ll hold on to the fact that I liked the other books! 7mo

I am so glad that I finally read this series for the first time this year. I really enjoyed it. 💙💙

TheReadingMermaid I love this series as well. My favorite was The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. But I have to say I'm really mad at CS Lewis for the way that he ended the series. I personally think it's the worst ending ever for a series and for a book. ☹️ 9mo
JamieArc Congratulations! 🎉 9mo
MommyWantsToReadHerBook @TheReadingMermaid I think it's a wonderful ending! Interested in why you think it's awful 😊 9mo

LiterRohde The ending makes perfect sense if you believe the Christian theology of Revelation - how the world will end, how to get to Heaven, who will get to Heaven, etc. If not, I‘m sure it seems cruel and brutal. Especially in today‘s world where everyone is right, unless you don‘t agree that everyone is right. 9mo
MinDea Thanks @JamieArc! 9mo
MinDea @LiterRohde I completely agree with you. The beginning and the ending is very Christian theology. It made perfect sense to me and I got it. CS Lewis is known as a Christian writer so to me I was not surprised by the ending. I think whether you agree with Christianity is a whole different thing but that is what CS Lewis wrote about! 9mo
MinDea @TheReadingMermaid Why did you dislike the ending? 9mo
mydearwatson @TheReadingMermaid Are you talking about what he did to Susan? 9mo
mydearwatson I don‘t think it‘s the worst ending ever, but it is an odd choice to end a children‘s series with a bunch of death. 9mo
TheReadingMermaid @MommyWantsToReadHerBook @MinDea @mydearwatson I know it's an unpopular opinion. I thought that the way he ended it with the characters dying was terrible. In the book it's like "oh you know that bump you felt? By the way you're dead. You're all dead." Lol I was like "WTF???" ??? 9mo
mydearwatson @TheReadingMermaid Yeah, that‘s a really weird way to end a series, especially a children‘s series :-\. I mean, I get the Biblical stuff, but still... 9mo
LiterRohde @MinDea My original post sounded kind of harsh, I‘m sure. But that is all I was trying to say. He, because of his theology, had a very narrow view of what is right. So, based on his theology, it makes sense. And although I understand it because I grew up in the thick of this same belief system, whether I believe it all as an adult is another story. Figuring it all out is difficult in today‘s world where any beliefs that are exclusionary are bad. (edited) 9mo
MinDea @LiterRohde it really didn't! I totally knew (and agree) with what you were saying. It honestly made complete sense to me now understanding what all these books really were about. 9mo
MinDea @mydearwatson @TheReadingMermaid for kids I don't think it actually says they're all dead...so I'm not sure they understand it to mean that. I think as adults we understand the meaning of the first and last books and what Aslan represents throughout the series; that Christianity is deeply rooted in this series and all CS Lewis' books. But it definitely does not explicitly say all these characters are dead. 9mo

3.75 ⭐️up to about chapter 10, I could not stand this story, and even with Patrick Stuart reading it on audio I could not get into it. The writing was very flat and not at all like Lewis‘ previous storytelling. After chapter 10 into the Last Battle and into the New Narnia, that is where it was very “beautiful “( if that‘s the right word for it!). ☀️And thus ends my Journey through Narnia!!🦄🦁🐁 Audiobook on SCRIBD and book copy

I've been reading the chronicles of narnia to my son, it was also my first time of reading them. This book rounded the series off well. A deserved carnegie medal winner.

"And for us this is the end of all the stories, & we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world & all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover & title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before."

The last book of the Chronicles of Narnia was beautiful and a fitting close to the series. I enjoyed the descriptions of Aslan's country and seeing all the characters from other books come back. There is some language and some stereotypes that we would now consider offensive, so parents reading to their kids might want to edit it a bit. On the whole though, reading this book and the series was a great experience.

My favorite of the seven chronicles. C S Lewis has a gift for breaking through our tendency to want to make everything relative and see genuine truth.

I have finished the last Narnia book! Unfortunately this might be my least favourite book of the series. The first half of the book was enjoyable, but the last half felt rushed, and to focused on the Christian imagery. The language of the characters annoyed me all way through, and I wanted it to be over. I made a mistake reading all the books one after the other, but I am glad to have read the series now, so I know what all the fuss is about.

ReadingSusan Yeah the last book is my least favorite. I have read all the others at least six or seven times and this one probably only two. 2y
Kalalalatja @ReadingSusan I think I would have loved these books if I had read them as a child! I can see myself rereading some of them (with the Pevensie children in them), but I don't think I will ever reread the whole series. 2y
ReadingSusan @Kalalalatja yes I think that makes a huge difference if you grow up loving books. Sometimes I read a book now and am like oh I wish I had read that as a kid. I would have loved it. 2y

Zelma I am like you in that I wish I read these growing up. I think I missed the boat so I haven't read any of them, just watched the movies (and enjoyed them). 2y
Kalalalatja @Zelma I am kinda glad I read the books, because I had heard so many great things and many critical things about them. I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about. I enjoyed the movies too! 2y

I want that last page read at my funeral. This book has some of the best quotes out of the whole series, and alot of good allusions to apologetics. Great parallels to the modern world that still work today, like the ridiculousness of the Tashlan lie.
