* BrokenBase: To this day, many fans are sore at Lewis throwing Susan under the bus out of nowhere, and for seemingly no story purpose.
* EsotericHappyEnding: A fairly well-known one. [[spoiler:Everyone died and went to Heaven, er, Narnia. But not Susan, because since she no longer believed in Narnia, she didn't join them on the journey where they all died. C.S. Lewis stated in a letter that she ''could'' get to Narnia "in her own time."]]
* HoYay: There are many yay-inducing moments between Tirian and Jewel the Unicorn, but this one takes the cake:
-->"Kiss me, Jewel," he said. "For certainly this is our last night on earth. And if ever I offended against you in any matter great or small, forgive me now."
-->"Dear King," said the Unicorn, "I could almost wish you had, so that I might forgive it. Farewell. We have known great joys together. If Aslan gave me my choice I would choose no other life than the life I have had and no other death than the one we go to."
* UnfortunateImplications: The treatment of Susan in this book is one of the most discussed controversies in literary history. Simply put, Lewis has been accused of SlutShaming, depicting Susan's "maturity" as a ticket to hell. Even notorious christian writers like Creator/JoanneKathleenRowling have voiced displeasure at this:
->"There comes a point where Susan, who was the older girl, is lost to Narnia because she becomes interested in lipstick. [[SlutShaming She’s become irreligious basically because she found sex]]. I have a big problem with that."
** On a lesser note, the dwarves have often been discussed as non-flattering parallels to jews or atheists.
