Back in January, Joshua and I went with Joshua’s sister, Jen, to see The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I really enjoyed it, though there were some changes that were made to the story that were disappointing. On the drive home after watching the movie, Jen asked us which character we most identified with. I immediately said Edmund and she said, “Yeah, me, too. But I wish I was like Lucy.” What a way to say it! Yes, we saw ourselves as traitorous sinners, but we wanted to be the one with the childlike faith. Joshua said that he most related to Peter in that he was struggling to accept his responsibilities as the leader and to be able to lead well. ( I think you do a great job, dearest.)
As I’ve thought more about that question I’ve realized that I am no longer so much like Edmund, but I’m more similar to Susan. Susan was the one to always be drawn to the world and to doubt the things she could not see. By God’s grace, I’m becoming less and less of Susan and I’m becoming a little more like Lucy.
So here’s my question, which character are you most like? Pick any character from any of the books. This isn’t a gimmick to get more comments on my blog. I’m really curious to see who everyone will pick.
On a side thought, did anyone else think the Witch’s costume was a little bizarre?
