Loved: Just about everything! This book is such a classic – I can’t believe I didn’t read it until I was older. If I’d read it in my childhood, I would have opened every single wardrobe I could to find Narnia! This series gives a wonderful sense of escapism, and though it deals with heavy good vs. evil issues, it retains its optimism, innocence and strong family bonds.
Learned: This is another great example of worldbuilding. C.S. Lewis creates a fantastically detailed world, complete with a long storied history and amazing characters (talking animals!). I admire his style. It’s like sitting on my grandpa’s knee, listening to him weave me a tale!
