I've read them all at least a half dozen times or more, but never back-to-back. The inconsistencies in the Chronicles, the sloppy writing, the bizarre references - I just HAD to know what was up with Lewis.
Locking down Wilson and limiting this big play ability will be a decisive factor in the outcome of the game. Most notably, athletic director Lynn Swann resigned in a move that was widely expected but much sooner than many had anticipated. How can an infinite number of beings be trapped inside the Life Box?

My theory is that he was so intent on getting his message across that he didn't pay attention to things like plot, structure, continuity, etc. If you have ever said, "WTF is he doing? Individually, they answered a lot of questions, but together, they offered nearly a complete explanation of everything I've ever puzzled over. The only thing I didn't like was that I didn't know who that girl on the cover was supposed to be; she kind of looks like Amy Pond.

Lewis' hidden layers through this wonderful discussion of allusions in the Chronicles. This is a must-have in any Narnia fan's library. It is a fun and easy read, which will deepen your appreciation for Lewis' art and whimsey. If you are a literature student, this would be a vital reference for any research project on the Chronicles. It might even be a good book to give a teen who is reading through the series, so explain some of the things they might not understand or appreciate otherwise.

One of the very few films they attended was The Woman in the Hall , in which she appeared under the name Jill Raymond. I saw you arrive: you flew. The other character in the series who most resembles Lewis has the funny name of Digory. Then one night, Aslan appears to him by moonlight, as in a dream, and carries him off to a place with fruit trees and a wide well like a great marble bath. Eustace tries to scratch off his dragon scales, only to find yet another layer of scales underneath, and then another.
