Day 2: Your Favorite Male Author

Again, this took some deliberation to decide. I *adore* Victor Hugo and Sigmund Brower. But I had to choose just one and I don't think my choice will surprise anyone.

CS Lewis.

The man is a genius. Along with writing my favorite books of all time: The Chronicles of Narnia. His imagery and his dedication to his craft are really what won him this spot. Plus he wrote my favorite paragraph that I've ever read in a book ever:
As He spoke He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was really the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.
That is an excerpt from the final Narnia book The Last Battle and I love it with everything that is in me. Well, that's all, friends. Thanks for reading!

  1. That line from 'The Last Battle' is my favorite too! It makes me want to cry (in a happy way) every time I read it. C.S.Lewis is amazing writer.

    I'm so glad you've joined in. ☺



Let me know what you think! I *adore* comments! Keep 'em coming!
