The best fiction of Lewis' I've read. Very well-written and nuanced, mostly. Unfortunately, the subtlety which made the first part so great keels over and dies toward the end when the narrator begins offering her own (dare I say, Lewis'...) solutions to the questions raised in the first two-thirds of the book.

Christians will likely find Orual's conclusions logical; others not so much. When you've finished the book, I urge you set aside theological baggage, return to Orual's complaints in the first section, and ponder how satisfying the provided answer is. Then, take up the aforementioned baggage again and repeat. How are the two perspectives different? And why?
