The Weird Sisters’ Prophecy

First Witch:
When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

Second Witch:
When the hurly-burly’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.

Third Witch
:
That will be ere the set of sun.

The White Witch of Narnia

My favourite character in C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was the White Witch right from the start. I first read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as a pre-teen, and I remember trudging through the first few chapters, until I got to the ice queen. Once she was introduced, I couldn’t read faster, and I remember reading through it quicker than I had read any other books at that time. This experience of loving a book because of an intriguing, elegant and plot-motivating character definitely taught me that reading books is amazing and unlike anything else!
