C.S. Lewis update

Just re-read Prince Caspian. It's not one of the ones I remember as a favorite, so I was surpised to discover that I now rate it as a considerably better book that The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It switches off the autopilot on about page 5, and the plot has only one critical coincidence in it.

It doesn't surprise me that I never caught on to the Christian allegory aspect when I was a kid. It's all mixed up with fantastic elements from many sources, like special guest appearances by Bacchus and the maenads...
