By popular demand we will be taking one week breaks between all our books. But before I get ahead of myself…last week at the BBC.
– Some were disappointed in the ending of the book. But one person brought up the fact that it is just Lewis’ interpretation of heaven/hell/purgatory and that seemed to make the ending a little better.
– We discussed the symbolism of the lizard and through an extensive 30 second search lizards represent conservation, agility, and dreaming. Which doesn’t really fit. Does anyone else have any thoughts on the symbolism of the lizard?
– It’s interesting to consider who was the intended audience for this book. Lewis was teaching at the time so was it for his students who might be confused about religion? Was it for the non-religous or religous? What kind of person would be most impacted by this book?
This week whoever wants to can meet up at the House of Commons. Kelly made reservations so we WILL have a spot. We are only talking about books if it’s absolutely necessary. Hope everyone has a great week and I hope to see you there.
