I read this a few years ago and was less than impressed but I honestly forgot that I'd ever read this and I recently felt the need to watch the movies (which I still haven't done) so I decided to try reading this until I watch the movies. I won't lie, I know absolutely nothing about this world but, I did enjoy this. I won't say it was amazing, but I'm certainly interested in contiuing this series. Honestly, this book might have just pulled me out of my reading slump.

Unfortunately I just didn't enjoy this. I tried to read this a few years ago but put it down and then ended up giving my copy away. Everyone seems to love this series so even though I didn't care for this one I will probably pick up the next ones over time.

Also, is the lion supposed to be God??? I'm getting Christianity vibes"

Mairenn Narnia! I haven't read this one though. I followed the movie sequence when I read this series.

I did enjoy this and it's probably more fun if you've read the other books!
