The story and plot were excellent.
The final words of the book.
There are so many scenes, it's difficult to pick one particular one.
This book is an allegory of the last days before Jesus returns, where we are warned that many will lead people astray with different religions. We see this in the way the ape, Shift and Ginger, the cat, have used Puzzle the donkey to dress up as Aslan, causing unbelief among a group of dwarfs who start fightingNarnians and enemies alike, fear and bewilderment among the beasts and gloom to reign over the once happy and kindly land of Narnia. Beasts and dwarfs are to be sold into slavery and Tirian, the last king, is bound to a tree for speaking out against the new regime. He calls on the children who have helped Narnia in the past and when Jill and Eustace arrive, they try to bring some hope back to the land, but is it too late?
This is a darker book than some of the other ones, but it keeps you on the edge of your seat. You just have to keep on to the end.
I came back to these for my babies sake, something for him to listen to. But I would have to stop each time because of the weight of the darkness over Narnia. This is saturn, the last medieval planet to have its influence over narnia and Aslan triamphs once again, for the last time.
I'm upset to have finished the series but it was a beauty. It was a glimpse of heaven. It was funny, sad, extreme happiness, all rolled in to one.
"A shifty ape and a puzzling ass!"
Reading and listening to the book is the best way to experience the story.
The humour and the wonderful ending is what I enjoyed the most.
This the only one I have heard from Patrick Stewart and his reading is definitely one of the better narration. He has a brilliant reading voice.
The final book in the Narnia series. It has a shifty ape and a puzzling ass posing as Aslan and creating chaos and destruction everywhere they go. This creates a humorous story as well as dealing with matters of the spirit. A wonderful tale.
