C.S Lewis over here throwing British shade xD xDWhy, Son of Adam, don t you understand A Centaur has a man stomach and a horse stomach And of course both want breakfast So first of all he has porridge and pavenders and kidneys and bacon and omelette and cold ham and toast and marmalade and coffee and beer And after that he attends to the horse part of himself by grazing for an hour or so and finishing up with a hot mash, some oats, and a bag of sugar That s why it s such a serious thing to ask a Centaur to stay for the weekendsnorts I started reading this with my boy ages ago, but I never got around to marking it as finished here on Goodreads.Generally speaking, I enjoyed reading him the book, and he liked hearing it I have a nostalgia for the Narnia Chronicles, too And that makes these books a little sweeter for me.My younger boy age 3.5 at the time of reading enjoyed it too Especially some of the action oriented scenes, and the stuff underground.
Ah, the strange joys of Narnia How is a middle aged feminist nonbeliever supposed to feel about this contradictory volume Pro Jill Pole is a strong, active, fun, funny, vigorous girl that any reader, male or female, will be happy to have as a protagonist Con Jill s old enough to be active, but young enough not to be a sexual being Which is clearly the only reason Lewis is comfortable having her around, because Con Once again, Lewis only allows grown women as characters when they re scary, evil, beautiful, and seductive in equal parts In this volume, the villain is the brilliant, ruthless Queen of the Underworld Pro Jill is a fully developed character who shows that kids can be strong and important without being paragons of virtue One of the lines I remembered all my life after reading this book as a child is her reply to Aslan when he asks her why she was standing so near the edge of a cliff and putting both herself and her friend in danger in the process I was showing off, Sir I love how she says this, without flinching She messed up, and there s nothing to do but own it.Pro Because of moments like the above, Jill is enjoyable to follow on her adventures than Lucy I love Lucy, but she s cute and sweet and pretty much flawless Jill gets tired, impatient, sick to her stomach with fear, sulky, and unreasonably angry She also knows when to fight and when to run I can relate to that.Con This is the only full length story of Jill s adventures The Last Battle so does not count More about that later Like, in another review Con Quite aside from the relatively passive sexism of Lewis pitting pre sexual girls against dangerously seductive full grown female villains, he also displays active sexism in this book At the very end, he makes a point of pointing out that the terrible, incompetent Head of Jill s awful boarding school is a woman Literally And then the Head who was, by the way, a woman Really Well, that explains everything Pro Lewis does some of his best characterization in this book Minor spoiler At one point, Jill, Eustace, and Puddleglum discover to their horror that the meat they ve been eating was actually a talking beast Their separate reactions as they put down their forks are brilliantly described Jill, who was new to that world, was sorry for the poor stag and thought it was rotten of the giants to have killed him Eustace Scrubb, who had been in that world before and had at least one Talking beast as his dear friend, felt horrified as you might feel about a murder But Puddleglum, who was Narnian born, was sick and faint, and felt as you would feel if you found you had eaten a baby Con Once again, Lewis backs the wrong horse, historically speaking Jill and Eustace are together on this adventure because they go to the same school Yes Really Can you believe it Boys and girls, attending school together What s next Pro It s kind of funny to think that someone as brilliant as Lewis could fall so cleanly into the losing camp on this issue Pro Lots of Aslan Con As a symbol of the Christian God, he s not at his best here For instance, he tells Jill at the beginning of her adventures, Here on the mountain I have spoken to you clearly I will not often do so down in Narnia Even as a child and certainly now, my first thought was, Why If you already accept divine inscrutability as necessary or at least inevitable, this flies fine if you don t, this doesn t help Pro Puddleglum is one of the finest fantasy characters ever His name and his tells are Dickensian in their genius, but he never falls into reflexive predictability He s a weird, quirky, deeply appealing hero.Pro Happy ending for every kid who s ever been bullied at school.Conclusion Once again, Narnia is awesome no matter how old and skeptical you get.
