Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yes, everything in its proper order.  Rowling was the "introductory drug" for my kids that led them to L'Engle, Pullman, and all sorts of wild things.  I, on the other hand, got things rather backwards.  Norse sagas and Beowulf led me to Tolkien.  By the time I got to Lewis a few years later, not only was I not interested in such fluff because I'd already read the real deal, but I could easily see that it was all Christian propaganda and apologetics of a slap-across-the-face-with-a-wet-herring level of subtlety.  When I finished them (I always finish.  I even finished Atlas Shrugged.  Ewww.), my predominant thought was, "Well, I can't get THAT time back."  I recovered by reading Frankenstein.  But I didn't recover enough to want to revisit Narnia.
