202 P. Translated into Spanish by Margarita Valdez E.
Yes! I’ve finished it! I haven’t read this book for a long time, and believe me, it took me a long time to read it for the second time, in Spanish! However, the language was easier than Harry Potter and at times the writing was so beautiful that I almost forgot that I was reading it in Spanish. I found the Christian overtones rather heavy-handed, but perhaps I’m becoming more intolerant in my old age. I enjoyed it, but I won’t rush to read the rest in the series – in either language.
And don’t you reckon that “Bruja Blanca” sounds more threatening than “White Witch”?
Well done. My ex-wife is learning Spanish and I send her your posts from time to time. I haven’t read CS Lewis since high school, when my parents let me go to youth fellowship instead of church (Cof E). The arguments are dim in my memory now, but I think we would use Narnia and so on to bait the serious christians about heaven and hell.
