Another classic tale from C.S. Lewis. Listened to the audio book on a road trip with my family - it made the time (and miles) fly. This is the final book of the Chronicles of Narnia. ( )

Part of “The Chronicles of Narnia” series, “The Last Battle” was completed in March 1953 and published September 4, 1956. “The Last Battle” chronicles the end of the world of Narnia. Jill and Eustace return to save Narnia from Shift, an ape, who tricks Puzzle, a donkey, into impersonating the lion Aslan, precipitating a showdown between the Calormenes and King Tirian. This leads to the end of Narnia, revealing the true Narnia to which Aslan brings them.

Ah, better. This story was consistent, with a good conflict, good character development, and good world building. This was such a refreshing story compared to The Horse and his Boy, which just fell flat in so many respects. There were some slow chapters, especially at the beginning, and the ending was somewhat abrupt. But overall, this was very much a good Narnia story with good Narnian characters, and a good Narnian plot. ( )

Last of the seven 'Narnia' chronicles. This is an exciting adventure with a fairly overt underlying message about the Christian doctrine of the End Times. Manipulative Shift the ape persuades the gentle donkey Puzzle to dress up and pretend to be someone else... disaster follows until two children from our world go to join King Tirian. Lovely ending.

I'm surprised how little I remember this story. The only part I remembered was the end.

A good conclusion to the Narnia novels.

The Christian symbolism is clear enough, but the book can stand on its own feet as a deeply moving and hauntingly lovely story apart from the doctrinal content.

Book description
Das Finale der Chroniken von Narnia! Böse Zeiten brechen über das Land des Löwen herein. Der Affe Listig verkleidet den Esel Wirrkopf mit einem Löwenfell und gibt ihn als Aslan, den mächtigen Schöpfer Narnias, aus. Die Bewohner des Landes werden versklavt und nach Kalormen verkauft. Aslan bringt Eustachius und Jill auf seine eigene Art und Weise nach Narnia, um dem Betrug ein Ende zu bereiten. Als die Kalormen aber ihren Gott Tash ins Spiel bringen, beginnt der eigentliche Kampf. Wie wird er enden? Wird Narnia weiterleben oder untergehen? Werden die Kalormen die Oberhand gewinnen und Narnia vernichten?
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064409414, Paperback)

The last battle is the greatest of all battles

Narnia ... where lies breed fear ... where loyalty is tested ... where all hope seems lost.

During the last days of Narnia, the land faces its fiercest challenge -- not an invader from without but an enemy from within. Lies and treachery have taken root, and only the king and a small band of loyal followers can prevent the destruction of all they hold dear in this, the magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.
