Narnia Tag

Narnia is so Christmassy, my sisters I think have made watching Narnia during Christmas a tradition.

I saw Katie do this tag, (origin of tag here) and I decided to consider myself tagged as I do whenever I like a tag.

Rating My Narnia Fanatic Level

1. Nostalgic Fanatic — you read the book and/or watched the movies as a child and the word Narnia gives you a warm feeling

2. Serious Fanatic — you rediscovered the wonder of Narnia after you were older and have read the books and watched the movies

3. Maniacal Fanatic — you have lived Narnia from childhood, hid in closets on more occasions than is healthy, have read and watched all the movies including the BBC version

I think I’m between Serious Fanatic and Maniacal Fanatic.

Dad read the books to us twice as children (with the full color illustrations from the church library very important, but when we later bought them we got the black and white illustrations, do you know how important knowing the children’s hair color is, I kid, sort of, the full color illustration bring Narnia to life)

Then we watched several or maybe all of the BBC movies.

Then we watched the three new movies.

Then I think I read some of the books as an adult.

Then I read them straight through a few years ago.

Then I reread them straight through beginning last December to this fall.

The Tag Questions:

1. Who’s your favorite Pevensie sibling?

Edmund. The bad boy became the deepest, truest, sweetest one. This happened with Eustace too.

2. What is the most underrated Narnia book?

Aren’t most of them underrated compared to The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe? Probably The Horse and His Boy. Its not exactly part of the main story line, so I think it gets left out. But I like the unique look, and all the characters.

3. Who is your favorite Narnian king?

Edmund, obviously.

4. Who is your favorite Narnian queen?

Lucy.

5. Which non-human Narnian do you like best?

Hmm, maybe Reepicheep?

6. Which book deserves a movie?

Um, my least favorite? I dread book adaptations now. Filmmakers spoil things.

7. What is the one thing you did as a Narnia fan that you do not regret?

All of it!

    Oh, I love this tag. I need to do a reread of this series. Oh, yes, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is definitely the most famous. I think that’s the first book I read. Or more accurately, heard. I remember listening to the audiobook on a very long car drive when I was very young.

      I’ve got some audiobooks, I tried to listen and read (because I really think the full color illustrations need to be appreciated along with the story) but got impatient. I feel like I read someone say maybe there is a Focus on the Family radio drama of Narnia?

      Thanks, it was fun, timely for me considering my rereading this year.

      Edmund for ever, a truly redeemed character. He is so sweet and honorable after he repents, sweetness is so much sweeter this way. I’ve a hard time with characters who are good from the beginning.
