Woot (numba 11)
« on: April 05, 2004, 03:29:42 PM »
Hey guys!
*waves*
I just wanted to say that I started C. S. Lewis's The Great Divorce last night. It was so awe strikingly amazing that I kept reading it until I finished it. It was one of the greatest books I've ever read.

I 've nearly finished reading the Problem of Pain. I began the Screwtape Letters. I let a friend of mine borrow it and I'll finish it as soon as he gets it back to me. Also, I've read the beginning of Mere Christianity. It seems to be quite excellent. My Dad read me Narnia when I was little. I always prefered it over LOTR (which he also read to me).

yeah, I grew up that way too... Plus I really liked the british, real life actor version of the first few narnia books.. Its good stuff! :)
How's the Problem of Pain? Ive not read or heard much about it...  ???
Y'know... Im not really sure I can compare LOTR to the Narnia Chronicles... IMHO they're two very different stories... with different goals... both were written by christians with strong morals involved... but LOTR was aimed more at adult audiences... Even so, C.S. Lewis was a better writer than J.R.R. Tolkien... (great writers always seem to have initials for their first n middle names...   ;D)

I is quite... interesting. There is a whole lot of depth to it and I'm not sure if I completely understand it. I really hate how there releasing the Chronicles now. They keep talking about how the Magian's(sp?) Nephew is the first book. Even though it is the first chronologically, it is not the first written and is by no means the first book that someone should read in the series.

Yeah, I know what you mean... The reason he wrote the Magician's Nephew later on was so you'd read it with the right perspective and the foreknowledge of things to come... Reading it first would detract from The Lion, Witch, Wardrobe (cuz youd know too much) and detract from Magician's Nephew (cuz youd know too little)...
They're seriously making new Narnia movies?? ...Hollywood made movies cant compare with the old fashioned British ones (and certainly not with the books themselves...) Narnia isn't Harry Potter, y'know....  :-[

I cringed the first time I read the back of some of the new realeses. Thats like setting out to read the Simarillion before you even think about the Hobbit (or LOTR).

But most people cringe when they read the Silmarillion... You have to be a wacko mythology/historian fan like me to enjoy it...  ;) Even so... the Lion, Witch, Wardrobe eases you comfortably into the land of narnia... without it your left scratching your head going "huh?" Worst case scenario, watch the movies out of order but in the order of the books...  ;D

But didn't they come out in the order of the books? They didn't go far enough to get to the out of order parts of the series.

yeah, me 2... I loved the version of "the Hobbit" they did. From what I know, they had funding cut midway through the project and it kinda crashed there.  :'(

The Hobbit and The Return of the King were not done by the same people that did the movie we were talking about. They were done by Rankin-Bass. I can't remember what the other one was done by.
