感想: 这是我通过《把你的英语用起来》恶魔奶爸的透析阅读法读的第一本英文原著。没有实行书中写的“七天行动”,而是每天固定一段时间来阅读。
刚开始注意力都不太集中,一页要花费好久时间,花费两个多月才看完,中间还有10多天时间没有看书。那段时间的看外文书的感觉就像是在做梦般,模糊不真实但又清晰。实际上是因为一句话有多个词不认识就会产生种模糊感,比如描述场景或是角色外貌穿着,因为不认识单词而在脑内想象不出究竟是怎么样的一幅情况。但这些都不妨碍对剧情的理解,对话的用语通常都是比较简单的。所以对于剧情的把控和走向还是能够明白的。看了几天后就能做到通过上下文来猜词了,甚至有时会出现有查词机会但需要到下一页才有生词可查的情况。读到后面因为放暑假了,再加上越来越熟练,基本能做到一天一章。

剧情: 两个孩子被一个怂蛋魔法师舅舅送去异世界中继站,继而到了个快到寿命终点的世界。在那个世界唤醒了强大的女巫,被女巫强迫带回自己的世界后找机会将她送到一个新生世界,在那遇到了正在开创新世界的上帝狮子。在狮子的帮助之下Digory种下棵生命之树来保护新世界的动物与人类,最后结局皆大欢喜(?)。下一本的剧情就将是关于Digory他们孩子和新世界的故事了。

片段:

  • Then two wonders happened at the same moment. One was that the voice was suddenly joined by other voices; more voices than you could possibly count. They were in harmony with it, but far higher up the scale: cold, tingling, silvery voices. The second wonder was that the blackness overhead, all at once, was blazing with stars. They didn’t come out gently one by one, as they do on a summer evening. One moment there had been nothing but darkness; next moment a thousand, thousand points of light leaped out—single stars, constellations, and planets, brighter and bigger than any in our world. There were no clouds. The new stars and the new voices began at exactly the same time. If you had seen and heard it, as Digory did, you would have felt quite certain that it was the stars themselves which were singing, and that it was the first voice, the deep one, which had made them appear and made them sing.

  • Both the children were looking up into the Lion’s face as he spoke these words. And all at once (they never knew exactly how it happened) the face seemed to be a sea of tossing gold in which they were floating, and such a sweetness and power rolled about them and over them and entered them that they felt they had never really been happy or wise or good, or even alive and awake, before. And the memory of that moment stayed with them always, so that as long as they both lived, if ever they were sad or afraid or angry, the thought of all that golden goodness, and the feeling that it was still there, quite close, just round some corner or just behind some door, would come back and make them sure, deep down inside, that all was well. Next minute all three of them (Uncle Andrew now awake) came tumbling into the noise, heat, and hot smells of London.

生词: 因为是通过kindle生词本导出,阅读过程中会出现误触,再加上有以前见过但不记得的单词,所以生词数量有点多(209个)。
