I finished it, and I LOVED IT! : ) I don't know why I didn't "get it" before ... maybe I started with the Magician's Nephew before (it is the first book in *my* set) ... maybe I tried to hard? Maybe I just needed to peel a few more layers of the proverbial onion before I got the full aroma. ANYWAY ... it was delightful.

So, let's discuss it ... I won't be starting the next book (Magician's Nephew, I think) until we're all ready. I posted this on the last board, and now I can't find it, so I don't know if I'm repeating the questions exactly as I posted them before. If not, my apologies ... especially if you've already answered. But ... here are some questions to discuss. If you aren't finished reading, NO PEEKING! LOL

I'll post my answers later tomorrow~ (oops, I mean, today!)


What in the story stuck out to you?

With which character do you most identify and why?

Where in Narnia would you like to live?

Which event in the story affected you the most and how?


Looking forward to your responses~

My thoughts on LW&W ...

What in the story stuck out to you?

The love. The love between siblings. The love of Aslan for them and them for Aslan. The love of the Beavers for the children.


With which character do you most identify and why?

Maybe Lucy? I tend to discover unfamiliar territory, and not know how to share it with others ... often that unchartered territory is within my own soul. The characters I meet there are sometimes frightening, sometimes funny, always enlightening, but I don't always know the way back to them again.


Where in Narnia would you like to live?

at the Beavers'. It sounds very cozy, and the setting sounds lovely ... near the water, in the country ... : ) ... yes. definitely with the Beavers.


Which event in the story affected you the most and how?

When Aslan died for Edmund. POWERFUL. I was moved to tears.

LOLOL

I was thinking about your questions yesterday and came to these conclusions:

With which character do you most identify and why?

Lucy...I always did, maybe because I was her age when I first read the book, she was the youngest child (like me), and her brother was a jerk to her, ROFLOL, no comment. She just spoke to me

Where in Narnia would you like to live?

At the Beavers'.

Which event affected you the most?

When Aslan died. I especially liked the mice...

Goodness, Geo, we do seem to think alike!!!

Well, my friend, either YOU should be VERY AFRAID

OR

I should be VERY THANKFUL! ; ) There's hope for me yet!!!

(who happens to know for fact that it is a brother's job to be a jerk to his sister ... All Star tells me that daily ... that's how I know.) ; )

I wasn't feeling well and had to stay in bed for a couple of days, so spent that time reading the book!

What in the story stuck out to you?

The love. Everyone looking out for each other; everyone thinking of the greater good for the whole community and not only of themselves.

With which character do you most identify and why?

Most probably Lucy. But isn't there a bit of each of the children in all of us, even Edmund when he was only thinking about Turkish Delights?

Where in Narnia would you like to live?

Hmmm... I really don't know. I suppose when you are surrounded by such loving friends, you are living in the right place?

Which event in the story affected you the most and how?

When Aslan chose to die for Edmund, and when Aslan was resurrected. That love could be so powerful that someone's well-being is more important than anything else. That good and love overcome darkness.

Poppy, wasn't it a delightful book? And I absolutely agree with your observations. Thank you, too, for your last comment. VERY helpful insight as I prepare for Sunday's sermon. : )

I think this is going to be VERY MUCH fun. : ) Now, I *do* hope you're feeling better?


Hugs,

Geo

Yes, it was a delightful book. I'm going to give the series to my nephew when I see him for Easter. He was going to get Pippi Longstocking in English, but I think he'll like reading the Narnia series better right now.

I'm feeling better, Geo. Still dizzy and weak, but better. Thank you for asking.

Hugs,

Poppy

When Aslan died in the play I saw I had tears in my eyes & a lump in my throat.
