When I picked up all of the Chronicles of Narnia books, I wasn't quite sure I would even read them,and if I did, I wasn't sure I would like them. Well, I started this book not knowing what to think or expect, and I was pleasantly surprised. With the last four or five chapters, I listened to the audio-books online while reading the books to kind of help me get through the books a little faster and easier. Listening to the person who read the books made the books even better for me. I enjoyed the narrators reading tremendously. The voices he did for each character and how he didn't seem to just be reading it to get it over with. I had already seen the Chronicles of Narnia movie when it had first come out so I had a pretty good idea of who was who once certain characters began to show up in the book. But this book helped me to completely understand how things got to be where they were by the second book (the now movie). I am not sure when I will be going on in the series because I have so many other books that I want to get to and finish. But hopefully I will be able to get to it within the next few months or so (God willing). But, because I have a pretty good idea what takes place in Chronicles of Narnia hopefully I will be able to enjoy the book as well. The times I have seen movies first, then read the books, I have enjoyed the book more than I did the movie...and for one Book & Movie situation, that's saying a lot because I loved the movie a lot. I am truly glad that I did push forward into reading this book, I really did enjoy it more than I expected to.
