I like that, in the Narnia series, this isn't used  - the characters
do remember, and it has an effect on their lives even when they can't
get back to Narnia. Some gradually forget, or choose to, but for the
rest it remains very vivid and life-changing.

Are there any books in which the remembering is taken further - that
element of living in the 'real' world and remembering the adventures
and being changed by them, but not able to get back?

Kathleen.
