Probably my second-least favourite of the lot. Puddleglum is a fantastic character, but Jill was such a latecomer, and paired only with Eustace -- also a latecomer, and not the most sympathetic of them either... It doesn't really work for me in that sense. And of course, Caspian is old, and that's just... ugh. It doesn't have the delightful magic of Narnia, for the most part, not until the gnomes are talking about Bism, which is pretty darn late in the game.

Still fun to reread, I suppose, but... It's not really Narnia to me.

Lara I have yet to read The Last Battle but so far this is also my least favourite. Certain things just don't work for me and I feel as though a lot of it is related to Jill.
