This is one of the weaker Narnia books, but at least it isn’t as bad as The Horse and His Boy. Weirdly, one of the highlights is the way that Lewis used what’s now considered to be archaic, to the point at which Jill says they need to be as gay as possible before kissing a bunch of giantesses and making love to everyone, despite being a young girl.
Other than that, it was just okay, which to be honest has been what I’ve made of the series as a whole. I’m still struggling to understand why it’s as popular as it is when it seems like there’s a whole heap of room for improvement and a ton of better children’s books on the market. Maybe that’s just me, I don’t know.
My main feeling with this one is relief, because I wasn’t sure if it was going to hold up compared to the others. I was worried it was going to be another Horse and His Boy.
