The Silver Chair:
NARNIA . . . where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans (and, if carefully cooked, on Marsh-wiggles, too), where a prince is put under an evil spell . . . and where the adventure begins. Eustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall, which, for once, is unlocked. It leads to the open moor .

I loved the first few books but after Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy most of all left , the magic of the books left me.

The Narnia Series is a most excellent series for young adults and children. C.S. Lewis' imagination is awesomely whacked, but perfectly believable to children. I enjoy reading this series, not because of the film versions, but because the narrative adventures are smooth and flowing . . . in a queer way.

I give the novel 4 stars because it did lack a sort of needed intensity ... as one would expect in most adventures. More fighting, more heroics? Not in this novel, but there is always Book #5 ....

The Silver Chair:
I have to admit this is my least favorite book in the series so far. I didn't find it as entertaining as the other instalments and even boring at times...

The Last Battle:
Having read all other Narnia books in random order, it's funny that the last one I should read is actually the last on in the series;-) I really enjoyed reading The Last Battle and thought it was a very fitting ending for the series.

if you feel a need to read fiction you might as well have a simbolic story that is also action adventure. Asland has a task for Eustace and Jill, save Narnia! How many times does Narnia need to be saved?

The Last awesome. The funny thing about this book is that it isn't a truly amazing book until the last few chapters--then the genius of C.S. Lewis comes out in full.

Nothing prepared my for the ending of The Last Battle. Very unexpected and good, though the religeous aspect could not more obvious. Not a bad book, and a very good way to round out the book series.

'Io sto dalla parte di Aslan, anche se Aslan non esiste. Io voglio vivere come un Narniano, anche se Narnia non esiste.'
