Favorite Quotes: (1) “And he called out ‘Aslan! Aslan! Aslan! Come and help us now.’ But the darkness and the cold and the quietness went on just the same. ‘Let me be killed,’ cried the King. ‘I ask nothing for myself. But come and save all Narnia.’ And still there was no change in the night or the wood, but there began to be a kind of change inside Tirian. Without knowing why, he began to feel a faint hope. And he felt somehow stronger.” (2) “’…to remember that all worlds draw to an end and that noble death is a treasure which no one is too poor to buy.’” (3) “Eustace was fond of being dreadfully matter-of-fact when other people got excited.” (4) “‘There goes one,’ thought Farsight, ‘who has called on gods he does not believe in. How will it be with him if they have really come?’” (5) “‘It seems, then,’ said Tirian, smiling himself, ‘that the stable seen from within and the stable seen from without are two different places.’ ‘Yes,’ said the Lord Digory, ‘Its inside is bigger than its outside.’ ‘Yes,’ said Queen Lucy. ‘In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world.’”
Why I Chose It: Final book in the Narnia series. Even Nick Roark doesn’t disagree with that statement on book order (I think).
Other Notes: If you have never read the Chronicles of Narnia, I think you should. They are deep and accessible and you will enjoy them regardless of how old you are.
