The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis

From the Back Cover: NARNIA . . . where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans (and, if carefully cooked, on Marsh-wiggles, too), where a prince is put under an evil spell . . . and where the adventure begins. Eustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall, which, for once, is unlocked. It leads to the open moor . . . or does it? Once again Aslan has a task for the children, and Narnia needs them. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, they pursue the quest that brings them face to face with the evil Witch. She must be defeated if Prince Rilian is to be saved.

Nothing really struck me as I read this book. When I look into it somewhere else, I will probably be chagrined for all that I missed. Prehaps the idea that God has given us our directions (the commandments) and if we could simply follow them, all would be well.

Hurrah! I don't really "get" this book either. I almost thought of focusing on this book for the whole month just to see what new things could be drawn out. Alas, I lacked the motivation!
