I finished the Narnia series a few nights ago. I loved it. Except that my two least-favorite books were The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Last Battle, and those are the two most overtly theological stories in the series. I liked the subtleties better. The Magician's Nephew, I think, is my favorite.
Someone asked me about Barbara Kingsolver recently, and I realized that I haven't talked enough about Barbara Kingsolver here. If you haven't, read something by her. If Poisonwood Bible was too involved for you, try The Bean Trees or Prodigal Summer. She's just SO good. That's all.
Happy Friday to you.
