Back to Narnia...

Oddly enough that is one of the reasons I think I became pagan. I liked Narnia as a small child, noted the Christian stuff, and then was disappointed by Christianity not living up to it....

Hello all

I caved today and saw Narnia

It was so cool, mostly because after years between my reading the books/watching the animated movie as a child over and over I remembered all this stuff... the fur coats, the jingle bells, the turkish delights and lucy and susan crying.

Keeping in mind the Xian stuff, it kind of ruined it but I tried to forget. It is so full of magic! It is as much Xian as it is counter-Xian.

Well, that is my opinion anyway, dear people.

I watched it yesterday and I loved it, I just love some of the camera work ad the characters, if I was 16 would have the hugest crush on Peter. And I loved the mermaids at the end, sometimes this world seems so boring, but speaking of fantasies, has anyone read the Obernewton chronicles, they are a kids book I saw in Australia but haven't been able to find here in Canada, I need books four and five. Anyone have any info? and I got the newest wheel of time for Christmas, i can't read it yet though, I have too much work to do.

sorry, no. but, by chance, has anyone read "the vampire chronicles" by Anne Rice? i've only just started reading "interview with a vampire". it's pretty good. it has some stuff about the occult in it, true or not, i don't know.

i just figured, you know...

Slightly off topic, but yes I've read all of the Vampire Chronicles, they're great! The Vampire Lestat is my favorite. :-)

really? well then you understand how i felt. when i started reading "interview", it started off by calling the characters "the vampire" and "the boy". for the first 20 pages, i actually thought that "the vampire" was Lestat. then when it said that Lestat wanted to buy something from him, i was like :scratch: ](*,) :?:

now, i'm a hundred and a half pages in and i still don't know who the "boy" is.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T TELL ME!!!!!

Quick Vampire Chronicles Lecture:

Lestat was introduced in the first book of Ann Rice's Vampire Chronicles, Interview with the Vampire. He was the Sire to the Vampire telling the story.

He starred in the next book, The Vampire Lestat, where he tells his story in response to his Childe's tale (IwtV).

He then is brought back for The Queen of the Damned, where he wakes up the Queen Mother of the Vampires, Akasha. (Who's one nasty B**ch)

After Akasha is dealt with, he plays around with body-swapping in Tale of the Body Theif.

Lestat's NEXT stupid adventure is Menoch the Devil, which deals with Christian mythology...and leaves our arrogant hero comatose.

A few other vampires get to tell their stories...Armand, Marius, Pandora and someone new, before Lestat wakes back up.

So, to simplify, he was introduced in Interview. (He is played by Tom Cruise in the movie.)

Thanks Kystar, ya beat me to the lecture! There's Pandora, Vittorio, and Armand who all tell their stories while Lestat is comatose, then more stuff happens, and a new vampire comes along named Merrick (at which point the Mayfair Witches series becomes a bit tied in), then another vampire named Quinn comes into the picture and the story more heavily involves the Mayfair witches. Once you get to the final book where this happens (called Blood Canticle), STOP, and don't read it until you've read the Mayfair witches series which is only 3 books (Witching Hour, Lasher, and Taltos). So there's your homework assignment girls and boys, you will be quizzed on it! LOL :lol:

Ahh the Vampire Chronicles!!! I love them. Have only read Interview (so far... and then I got out of highschool and our local lobrary doesn't carry them anymore... Our school library was SO much better. What would they say if I went back, other than get a life??).
