Farewell to Narnia
It is with, I confess, some relief that we have finished the childrens' bedtime story reading marathon that was the chronicles of Narnia. As much as I enjoyed that little trot down memory lane, I found it a little tedious done in end on end fashion. Also, as I recall I didn't particularly enjoy The Last Battle the first time around, and didn't this time either. There's just something about Shift. Ugh.
But the important thing was the kids loved it, and insisted on me reading through each book. When I suggested a little change before this one, there was a unanimous 'no way!'
I shall secretly take delight in putting my old Narnia books back on the bookshelf for the next generation...
