I love the Chronicles of Narnia books!! I have probably read them all at LEAST 3 times!! And the movie(s) are great too! I sill have to see Prince Caspian though. Does anyone else like Narnia?? WHat is your favorite book?? I think mine are Voyage of the Dawn Treader (cant wait til that movie comes out!) and The Horse and his Boy. I like the Horse and his Boys because it is so different than all the other books. :D :D :D

I like The Horse and his Boy, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I haven't seen any of the movies, except with a friend, that I never finished. (And with snowboardbug. Guess I can't leave her out, can I? LOL!)

I prefer the Magician's Nephew; The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe; and The Last Battle. I think that those books are the most important parts of the series because they portray Creation, Christ's Sacrifice, and the End Days. The movies don't do the books justice. I don't think that Prince Caspian (the movie) is really that good. The first Narnia movie does try to stay close to the book and does a fair job of portraying the important points.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair are definitely the best two books. :)

I must say... the Voyage of the Dawn Treader has to be my favorite as well! They were all good... but I liked that one the best!

It was a good book, but it seams to almost digress from the rest of the series.

I can see why it would be your favorite then. If you haven't read the rest of the series, I would suggest The Last Battle and The Magician's Nephew. Those two books have the most horses like stuff (characters: Jewel the Unicorn & Fledge the Flying Horse) in them after The Horse and His Boy.

yeah, i've read the rest....and i do love those characters. I like the Last Battle better though...not sure why completely. I think it might be because all of my favorite characters show up.(btw, off-topic...is this forum always this quiet? just wonderin...)

I was a little sad that one of the 4 children turned their back and didn't show up in the "real" Narnia. (To answer your other question: Sometimes, but not always.)

yeah, same here...i was so mad at Susan because of that. i was like 'What in the world were you thinking? Narnia is amazing and you chose to forget it?' i was in shock too. :) (oh, and the other stuff....got it. i was just curious...cause i check everyday just to see if anyone's on and no one is ever on.)

It is sad, but CS Lewis wrote the book with that in it for a reason I believe. That tiny mention of Susan turning her back on Narnia shows what can happen if we turn our back on God. Another thing that I should point out (though this is just guess work) is that it is very likely that because she wasn't interested in Narnia like the others, she may not have died at that time all of the other characters did, and may yet have a chance to return.

sorta, but it shows at the end all the worlds ended and susan was leading a from Earth's time toward Aslan...if i remember correctly. *goes and finds book to read tomorrow* :) I believe she did die though...i think C.S. Lewis was alluding to the end of our world also, not just Narnia's world.
