I think I've pretty much concluded that this is my favorite novel of all time. I feel slightly blasphemous for saying so, but I must say that having read this before any of Lewis' works and once again after I've read a good amount has greatly helped me understand where he's coming from. The myth of Cupid and Psyche also happens to be my favorite myth, and I love how Lewis maintains the pagan feel of the story while still speaking his own voice through Orual's words. I can almost feel his own struggle with the tangibility of the gods in the same way that Orual finds them frustrating and confusing. The book speaks on so many different things with such depth and wisdom that I think this book will never get old. It's definitely one of those that I will be able to read over and over again.
