Last night, Sarah and I finished reading the last chapter of The Last Battle. We’ve been reading the Narnia books for more than a year now, a few chapters a night, a few days a week, with other books interspersed here and there.
This is the first time I’ve read all the way through the Narnia books for probably 20 years, and they had as much magic this time as the last. Perhaps even more, as I got to share it with Sarah. I think perhaps the end of the Last Battle was a little too high-browed for her. But she’s definitely had her appetite whetted for books of this short, and wants to know what other books might fall in this category.
Maybe, just maybe, we can read The Hobbit before too long. 🙂
