it was amazing
bookshelves: y-a

I just recently re-read this and the Horse and His Boy on the recommendation of a friend. I haven't read the Narnia books in a really long time, but had been wanting to, after reading some of CS Lewis' theology writings, and figuring out that all of those lions and daughters of Eve were morality tales in disguise.
I still enjoyed the story, but was overwhelmed by the now obvious religious undertones to everything. Intolerance of those who worship an ugly hawk faced god (brown people in turbans no less). And essentially the end of the books is the End Of Times. Those who believe in Aslan are allowed into the promised land, those who don't are bound to live in darkness forever. The part where everyone can run forever, and run up waterfalls no less is awesome still, as is the scene where all of the stars fall from the sky to stand with Aslan and light the way on earth.
