I didn't know Aslan had 9 names with nine meanings (still have to look up the names and meanings though)
I took rather a liking to ole Puddleglum in "The Silver Chair" and I found myself saying (well muttering) "I Shouldn't wonder", I will be turning into a glum little (well actually tall) Marshwiggle myself I shouldn't wonder"...
What I thought of Prince Rilian. I think he is a loyal, sincere and kindhearted prince, no offence to Prince Rilian fans, but he went head over heels to go avenge his mother (noble but just a tad rash) going alone (probably not a good idea at any time in these situations) he winds up a servant of the witch (granted she is charming and conniving, and he was also alone -his own fault) And then he needs two children to rescue him (of course all three would have ended up slaves under a spell if not for good ole sensible Puddleglum). Just a little rash but a very noble prince.
Favorite quote so far:
"I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia"
Ah good ole Puddleglum. And it sounds like something any Narnian fan can take on as a motto. (Because my realistic side is not hopeful of finding the wardrobe or a yellow ring) or water spilling out of a painting or .... For goodness sakes here I go rambling on and spoiling the mood all in one go! I'll probably find I'm related to a Marshwiggle I shouldn't wonder...
I wish there were more books about Narnia, I would love a book about things that happened after Digory and Polly left, a book about King Frank and Queen Helena first rulers of Narnia (I do wonder why her name was changed, Queen Nellie doesn't sound as royal but quite nice if you ask me.)
I would also love a book that tells the story of the events leading up to "The Narnian Ice Age" as it were, how the Witch came to such power, what she was up to between the time Digory and Polly visited and before the Pevensies came.
Well that will be all for now, If I don't start reading again soon I'm afraid it will drive me simply mad!
