    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.

    Real talk: I've never read the books, because I hate CS Lewis.

    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

    Cunnilingus and psychiatry brought us to this Supporter

    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.

    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!

    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.
