This book would be good to use when talking about the end of the world. I think students will like this because it is an integrating view of how the world might end. ( )

Up until the last three chapters, I enjoyed the book. Save for the rather poorly written and equally poorly veiled retelling of Revelations in the last three chapters, The Last Battle is a parable about the dangers of blindly following. It starts with a monkey's deception and coercian of a donkey. From there it leads to the corruption and invasion of Narnia and the dethroning of the last monarch. At the last battle (actually the only battle in the book) C.S. Lewis stops telling a story and just starts preaching. It would have been a more powerful book if the characters had just been allowed to be defeated. Instead the entire world is destroyed and all the characters killed just so they can all be "happily" reunited in the last chapter with characters from previous chapters. LAME ENDING to an otherwise well written book. ( )

this is the only book of the series that i really honestly dont like.
I hated the donkey & the lion thing
I think I just dont like humilation and stupidity and I dont like it when bad things happen.
Im not making any sense lol.. but I just avoid this book
The ending is ok. But not ideal

Read it if you like. But I dont encourage you to ( )

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.
