I did enjoy this book, mostly because I didn't know if I was going to, so much. I had "meh" expectations because everyone has said such amazing things about it.
I also, for some reason, thought that it would be super-long. And hard to understand. The only part that was hard to understand was the dialog at the end, when the two Sons of Adam and the two Daughters of Eve start using very proper and kingly and queenly words to communicate!
But the book moved quickly, and I didn't find myself so angry with Edmund as I did when I was a kid, watching the movie. I wonder if that is just one difference between LLAW as a child and LLAW as an adult.
While as a kid, watching that movie, I couldn't BELIEVE what a jerk and scum and heartless, greedy dirtbag Edmund was, as an adult, I thought...Edmund is no so different from me.
And Aslan. Well...he was more magnificant and his sacrific even more profound as an adult.
