Clive Staples and Characters

Since I've just finished listening to the audio dramatizations of The Silver Chair and The Last Battle, and I've recently read A Field Guide to Narnia, C.S. Lewis it is this week.

They've just announced the actors who are to play the four children in the upcoming movie The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. None of them looked like I expected them to, but I'm glad they finally got Susan's hair color right. And Lucy is as cute as can be.

One of Lewis' trademarks is his memorable characters. Who can forget Puddleglum? Or Reepicheep? Let me know your favorite Narnian characters. We'll be discussing them the rest of this week.

Hi, I've enjoyed reading what you've had to say about the Narnia books. Ever since I was a kid I have been captivated by Lewis'creations.
I was pretty happy with the actors they chose for the movie, though I was rereading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe before I saw the movie and read something I'd always missed before.
In the last chapter Lewis refers to Lucy and says she was "always . . . golden haired" I have never in my life seen Lucy portrayed as blonde. I wonder why people have always missed that?
Anyway, I've enjoyed your blog
