number four on my list of sorting my life out was to 'read a book a month'

februarys book was one that i got for christmas from chloe
i thank thee again miss
The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis

FUN FACT: did you know the C stands for Clive and the S stands for Staples? What an old school name

It took me three days to read it
I already knew the story cause of the film obviously and haven't actually read the first book, The Magician's Nephew, because i don't have it so I don't know whether in the first book there is a bit of info that would have been good to know before reading the second book but fuck it
who cares really
although in the back of this one there is a little synopsis of each of the other 6 books
it says this for the magicians nephew:

'Make your choice, adventurous stranger;
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.

Magic and a mad uncle put two young children, Digory and Polly, in a situation where they are forced to make a choice. The result is an adventure beyond their wildest dreams as the doorway to the magical land of Narnia opens for the first time…'

so i guess I'd have just got a bit of a Narnian back story

it was alright
im not sure I'm the biggest fan of his writing style
but i suppose it is aimed at kids
and I'm not a kid anymore
though i would have never read it if i was still a kid
so, every cloud i guess

I'm still interested in reading them and will just power through his writing style
mostly because they're making a fourth narnia film, The Silver Chair, which is the 6th book and its not out til like 2016 so i have to know the low down
The book says this about it:

''It must be a dream, it must, it must,' said Jill to herself. 'I'll wake up in a moment.' 
But it wasn't and she didn't'

Eustace and his friend, Jill, are pulled back into Narnia because Prince Rilian, the son of King Caspian, has disappeared. With the aid of a rather gloomy marsh-wiggle the children set out to find him. But will they be able to resist the enchantment of the Lady of the Green Kirtle…'

okay, the things i need to know are how long since The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is The Silver Chair set??
one year?
ten years??
How long after?
Cause if Eustace and Jill are having to look for the Prince does that mean Caspian is dead? 
Also who the hell did Caspian bed to make a prince??! 
cause in the dawn treader it'd been three years since he'd seen susan and he still wasn't over her, if your not over someone in three years you aint getting over em caspian!

I wonder why it's always children that have these adventures
perhaps because the target audience is children and therefore its more relatable?
or children have better imaginations and could handle all the crazy shit that happens to them
but just to throw kids into a battle isn't cool
although maybe peter is 16 and we just haven't been told?
but thats still no excuse for edmund cause in the dawn treader film it states he's too young to join the army
maybe its their open-mindedness
who knows

i used a fantastic mr fox bookmark with this book and it didn't feel right

could be a really long earring if it wasn't a book mark
