Aslan Reigns

"Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things--trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only real world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that's a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We're just babies making up a game, if you're right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play-world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. So, thanking you kindly for supper, if these two gentlemen and the young lady are ready, we're leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for the Overland. Not that our lives will be very long, I should think; but that's a small loss if the world's as dull a place as you say."
--Puddleglum to the Green Witch, "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair"

I thought I'd read all the Chronicles except two, so I rented two from the Library...and then looking in the back of the book I found one more title I didn't recognize. Guess I've got to make a return trip.
Which was your favorite?

"The Silver Chair" and "The Last Battle" were the most enjoyable. I'd've likely enjoyed "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" the most but I already knew what happened therein because of the cartoon.

I didn't like the last book much.
The Silver chair was alright.

I totally agree with you Dave...The Last Battle was the only book I didn't like. The Silver Chair and The Horse and his Boy are sooo the best.
