Bill Sandifer Sex doesn't have to dominate all literature. Personally, I love the stuff and am all in favor of it. But few want beef three meals a day.

Lewis's worlds work on many levels, subtle in all, a setting that the intrusion of sex would disrupt if not destroy.


Austen to Zafón This review would work for every kid's book out there (except for books like "Your body and how it works"), so it doesn't tell me anything. It's like saying, "Welcome to Narnia, where children have adventures."

Northern Sex in a children's book? Why are people complaining in these reviews that there's too much Christian content in a Christian book and not enough sex in a children's book? You didn't get what you were shopping for? Or were you in McDonald's trying to buy a pair of shoes?

Anthony Marchetta Are you criticizing a children's book for having no sex?

Nanoubix How strange. I came up here on goodreads after reading a comic drama/graphic novel about a lesbian cartoonist and writer searching for her true self through the psychoanalytic female imaginary and fictional autobiography. She portrays herself as a child discovering, one fateful winter night, The Chronicles of Narnia, her mum's depression and the deep, sexual attachment she had been nurturing towards her. Out of the blue her mum asks her 'do you love me?' and she is totally puzzled by the question. 'my family had never talked about love. I'm quite certain no one had ever said they loved me.' After which, I felt the urgent need to know whether I should have read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
