The Last Battle (review)

The Last Battle (Chronicles of Narnia, #7)The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is the first book I’ve wished for a “re-read” option on goodreads. because I cannot stress enough how important I think it is for you to know I love it enough to frequently re-read it.

The final volume in the Chronicles of Narnia, we see the Eustace and Jill return to Narnia, only not as they are used to it. Animals are treated like animals – trees cut down without concern for their very real souls (remember it is fantasy). I loved the descriptions of the two worlds (ours and Narnia) and the idea that such a thing could be a reality isn’t so far-fetched as you might think, as Lewis helps us to see God as bigger than we’ve imagined.

The end perfectly captured the poignancy of leaving the earth for an unknown – and in faith in an extraordinary God.
