The Narnia Skirmishes - New York Times

Long piece in New York Times by Charles McGrath ending

Lewis once characterized the imagination as a faculty that "stirs and troubles" the reader with a "dim sense of something beyond his reach," and the Narnia chronicles, however stodgy their apparent message, surely succeed at doing just that. Like all the great children's books, they're not really concerned with explaining or defending this or that orthodoxy. They're interested in mostly the same thing Hollywood is: escape.

Highly recommended
