Is anyone else here obsessed with the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis? I've read all 7. I was recently on a national radio show discussing them (called-in). :shock:

I've also been reading the Lord of the Rings.

If you do a forum search on Narnia you'll find many others enjoy the books too :D

I think "The horse and his boy" was going to be the next film in the series before they stopped producing them. A shame, because it's my favourite. I wonder how they would have handled it.

Wow, that would have been interesting. I used to watch the old series a lot as I grew up, and when I read the book I was so disappointed that they hadn't made it.

In my opinion, The Silver Chair is the scariest! :shock:

I've never seen the movies, do you recommend them?

I've only watched the two first, and I was mad at how they made the relationship between Susan and Caspian romantic (seeing as he is 13 (or something)!). After that I stopped watching. I love the series though, I really feel like they got the vibe:D

It's amazing how the movie companies have to just change everything around. :roll:

I know, It's the "Hollywoodisation". It's ridiculous.

One of my family's favorite things to do is to (after we read the book) watch the movie, and point out any differences we see. :D

What is your favorite Narnia book?

Ohhh... I think it's hard to pick, but I would have to say The Horse and his Boy. What's yours?

Yeah, I love them both as well. I just love the way we get to see the four kids from the outside in the horse and his boy.
