The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (The Chronicles of Narnia, #2) - C.S. Lewis, Pauline Baynes Got some of the Narnia books on Christmas 'cause I wanted a quick, fun read, and 'cause they were cheap. Man, wish I had got something else instead! I just wanted to be done with them after a few pages. Basic narrative, bland characters, bothersome religious subtext. What an uncompelling story.
