The Last Battle

The Last Battle has always been my favorite of The Chronicles of Narnia. It is gorgeous! It is hard to write well about perfect happiness, but C.S. Lewis has done it in a sizable chunk of this book, and done it excellently.

“‘Yes,’ said Queen Lucy. ‘In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world.’ It was the first time she had spoken, and from the thrill in her voice, Tirian now knew why. She was drinking everything in even more deeply than the others. She had been too happy to speak.”
