i figured there should be a thread dedicated to land of Lion Jesus.
Voyage of The Dawn Treader was my favourite of those books as a kid. I loved the little rat man.
Started laughing out loud seeing this in the forum with the other location/local threads.
Bless you @Dominick, I needed that right now.
That was my favorite as well! I loved the part on the dragon island and then the island with the invisible one-footed people or whatever. Last one was also very good.
Susan got robbed man
Real talk: I've never read the books, because I hate CS Lewis.
The Horse and His Boy was always my favorite.
The Horse and His Boy was cool when I was a kid but then I got to be a little older and realized it was racist as fuck
Read the first book but I don't remember it. I played Aslan in my high school's production of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Horse and His Boy + Last Battle forever.
I don't know many people who have actually read the entire series. "Upsetting" does not even begin to describe the ending. Poor Susan.
Heeyyyy everyone died in a train crash and went to heaven! But not Susan! She's a non-believer!
Bunch of closet cases over there...
I'll see myself out.
Susan discovered make-up and has to go to hell. I don't make the rules, that's just how it goes. - CS Lewis probably
It isn't just that she discovered makeup. It's that she cares more about worldly, material things (herself, basically) than anything to do with Narnia. Here's a quote from Lewis:
"The books don't tell us what happened to Susan. She is left alive in this world at the end, having by then turned into a rather silly, conceited young woman. But there's plenty of time for her to mend and perhaps she will get to Aslan's country in the end... in her own way."
I know this still doesn't sit well with a lot of people, but being a conceited person seems to be against all that Aslan and Narnia represent.
