93 - The last battle

I've finally finished narnia! (Except I haven't bothered with Voyage of the Dawn Treader, but if I see it in the library I will.) I was pretty over the series by this point. This last one had a couple of new characters & schemes that were interesting, but it didn't delve deep enough into anything. I know it's a kid's book, but you're talking about God and Heaven - it's not all black & white Clive!
***Spoiler alert following: plus he wrote Susan out of it! She was too busy with nylons & lipsticks! Sexist alert! I guess it's good he didn't kill her off like everyone else!***

Anyway, I'm glad I've read it - but it's not something I'll be in a hurry to read again.

  1. Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the best one!

    If you ever get the chance, try and read Neil Gaiman's short story "The Problem of Susan" which is collected in "fragile things"


    It's a pretty cutting response to the way Susan is shut out of heaven for not staying a good girl.
