Re: The Chronicles of Narnia

Magician's Nephew is my favourite too but I don't think I'd have enjoyed it so much if I'd not read Lion Witch & Wardrobe first. It was so intriguing to see where the wardrobe, the lamp post and in fact Narnia itself had come from. And I just loved Aslan singing the world into being.

I liked Prince Caspian least - I found it really hard going.

Re: The Chronicles of Narnia

So this is absolutely random, but I was hoping someone could help me answer this question:

I was just watching Prince Caspian and decided to look at Wikipedia to see a timeline of events thoughout the course of the books. I've read LW&W, Prince Caspian, and The Magician's Nephew but not recently. Wikipedia says that the Pevensie children ruled in Narnia for 15 years. I was always under the impression that it was much longer than that, hundreds of years. They're full grown adults, not just 20 year olds when they return to our world, and their memories of the real world are hazy if not non-existant.

So, was it really only 15 years from the time Lucy first crossed over to when they stumbled back through the wardrobe?

Re: The Chronicles of Narnia

Exact estimates differ. They're full adults by the time they leave, but Peter could be no more than 38 by the time they hunt the White Stag, and I think that's high. Remember, their reign has to be just about winding down by the failed embassy to Calormen when a headstrong 20-year-old Rabadash is tempted to hazzard himself, his kingdom and his pride over lust for Queen Susan (The Horse and His Boy). No less than 15, no more than 25, I'd always estimated it as 20 years. Additionally, it's the gap between the Hunt and the horn call in Prince Caspian that is hundreds of years, not the reign of the Cair Paravel Four.

I finally made it!

No worries. No spoilers here.
