I hope you're not too busy for a bit of adventure to the world beyond the wardrobe! So finally, our book for this month of may will be... *dundududundudun*... The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis! We all know this story from way back when the first movie came out years ago, but we fail to give the book and its writer, Lewis, the appreciation they deserve as much as the movie did! It's the birthplace of these amazing characters and creatures and magical places! So what better way to experience firsthand where all these creativity came from than to read the book itself, straight from the mind of C.S. Lewis!!!
and as you read the book, just think over these questions in your mind and then feel free to share your thoughts afterwards:
Which of the four Pevensie children are you most like – Peter the Magnificent, Susan the Gentle, Edmund the Just, or Lucy the Valiant? Why?
Father Christmas claims that "battles are ugly when women fight". Do you agree with the gender roles assigned to the Pevensie children in Narnia – Peter and Edmund as soldiers, Susan and Lucy as aides and comforters?
After growing up to be Kings and Queens of Narnia, why do you think would the Pevensie children just get thrown back into the real world (London) by the writer, C.S. Lewis?
and lastly, we all know that there is a connection between Christianity and the story, that Aslan is a symbolism for Christ. But why do you think C.S. Lewis chose to depict Him (Jesus) as a lion?
So off we go on a great adventure! Hope to hear from you guys soon!
helloooo! i will try to participate on this like i'd probably finished this quite fast. hehehe! i am currently distracted with another book. break muna ako sa YA genre ko just for this week then will go back to it again next week,
and then im done! i e-read the 98 pages only for few hours. really familiar since i watched it on screen, but still amazing, nevertheless. contemplating on whether to watch the movie again or continue with the next book.. hmm! let me read them all first, then watch the movies later. As far as i can remember, not much difference but if there was, i think it was all for the dramatic effect in the movie. I was scared when edmund saw the white queen for the first time, i was teary-eyed when Aslan gave himself up. even though, i quite know what will happen next pages after pages, it was a fun experience reading it really. im glad we, chose this.
Just finished the lion the witch and the wardrobe and prince caspian na rin! Haha i just had to do it all in one go. The first book is very much like the movie. The producers really wanted to capture the story as how it really came off as in the book and almost the same goes for the prince caspian. Both stories are just wonderful especially when you've already got the movie in your head and you're reliving the moments in the book. Such fairytales and fantasy and all the joys of nature and happiness. That's the vibes that comes out of these stories. They just make you feel good the ending of the prince caspian was just quite sad, for they had to leave narnua and peter and susan would not come back anymore
