Growing up, I read The Chronicles of Narnia. This was before I was a believer. The story was right in my "wheelhouse" (be a geek about most things sci-fi and/or fantasy). When the movies started coming out a few years ago, I was understandably excited. Recently I downloaded from Itunes the podcast of all 7 books in audio book form. Listening to them as I go to and from work I've come again to the same conclusion: Generally speaking, the book is better than the movie. What other books is this true of? The Lord of the Rings? (Another group of books I read growing up ... again, in my wheelhouse ... sensing a theme here ...)
This is what I love about the fact my kids love reading!
