More About the Author

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.


Product Description

Amazon Review

Children across the globe have bathed in the glow of C S Lewis's land of Narnia since the 1950s when the seven books that make up The Chronicles of Narnia were first published. Now, as new generations look to that magical and fantastical land for pleasure and escape, the seven Chronicles are presented together for the first time in one magnificent volume, The Complete Chronicles of Narnia.

With the original, traditional, black-and-white illustrations delicately and impeccably restored in glorious colour by Pauline Baynes, this beautiful book makes for a stunning addition to any bookshelf. Whether taking a trip down memory lane, back to the days when you were first captivated by Aslan, Cair Paravel and the White Witch, or introducing the wonders of Narnia to the latest generation, The Complete Chronicles of Narnia is the most enchanting way to retrace the magical journey that begins just behind the wardrobe. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“The magic of C S Lewis’s parallel universe never fades.”
The Times

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was voted ‘Children’s Book of the Century’ in the Keith Barker Millenium Awards.

“Forget Simba. There’s a new lion in the Magic Kingdom… Long before J.K. Rowling dreamed up Harry Potter, Lewis was busy with his seven book series.”
E! Online

“Like the ‘Rings’ cycle… the seven Narnia books have a long and loyal following.”
The Herald (U.K.)

“Narnia offers huge scope for a profitable film franchise… fantasy is currently the toast of Hollywood.”
The Guardian (U.K.)

“…a big, live action movie franchise to help spark new merchandising lines and theme-park attractions.”
Los Angeles Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Chronicling "Narnia" 22 Jan 2006
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Many decades ago, two drinking buddies wrote vastly different fantasy series, which set the groundwork for the fantasy genre. One was J.R.R. Tolkien, author of the classic "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit." And the other was C.S. Lewis, the author of the philosophical "Space Trilogy." Before these two, fantasy was only a few books by a small number of obscure authors.
Many years later, C.S. Lewis is still a classic, much-read author, and his books are about to hit the big screen -- "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" will debut in December, following the footsteps of Tolkien's movie adaptations. So, dust off the Narnia Chronicles and reacquaint yourself with these fantasy stories.
"The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" opens as four children (Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter) are being shipped to a country mansion to avoid German bombings. While exploring the house, Lucy accidently ventures into a winter-locked world called Narnia, ruled over by the evil White Witch. The god-king Aslan is about to return to destroy the Witch -- but she has a hold on Edmund....
"Prince Caspian" takes place long after the events of the first book. Young Prince Caspian escapes his uncle's castle when his life is threatened, and he finds refuge with the hidden races of Narnia -- dwarves, talking animals, dryads, centaurs and many others. And to help Caspian regain the throne, the two kings and two queens of Narnia are called back...
"Voyage of the Dawn Treader" begins when Edmund, Lucy and their obnoxious cousin Eustace are sucked through a painting into Narnia, where their pal Caspian is now king of Narnia (not to mention fully grown). Caspian is heading toward the end of the world to find several knights who were banished, and vanished into the perilous islands along the sea.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chronicles of Narnia 20 Mar 2007
Format:Paperback
This was bought for my little girl but I have just steadily worked my way through the whole set. The magic of these stories is evident whatever your age. From the beginning of creation to the end of the world there is adventure for every child that reads the stories. Talking beasts, worlds in wardrobes, witches and of course, the human children. These are stories to be read over and over as children and into adulthood. Absolutely wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old favourite yet still a wonderful read. 22 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I first read the Chronicles of Narnia as a youth and loved them. Having sadly lost my collection of the seven books I was pleased to find this all-in-one edition at a very reasonable price on Amazon.
Surely most people are already familiar with the content of this series but as a review is a review I will elaborate into what I find to be so fantastic about these magical books.
Narnia is almost tangible after having read these books, and anyone with a shred of child-like imagination in them can not help but enjoy the tales of magic, witchcraft, truth & beauty, with goodness triumphing over evil as it always should.
My favourite two within the seven chronicles are "The Magicians Nephew", and "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe". Between thse two we are introduced to what I would consider to be the main characters of the series being Digory, Polly, Edmund, Lucy, Susan, and Peter.
I can't go on much further with this review as it is difficult to review one book let alone seven-in-one. Needless to say I recommend that any parent introduce this book to their child at an early age and help instill a sense of values, and yet also the ability to imagine and be open minded to the unknown.
Top scores!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless masterpiece 19 Mar 2004
By Cartimand TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
This delightful edition of the Chronicles of Narnia benefits from the seven tales being in their correct logical sequence, as well as from the most famous, enchanting illustrations of Pauline Baynes, who depicts everything from the Elysian magical presence of fauns and dryads to the ghastly apparition of Tash, with great skill and sensitivity.
I first read this as a youngster, and it grabbed my imagination in a way that no other book (with the possible exception of Lord of the Rings) has done since. Now, revisiting the land of Narnia over a quarter of a century later, was like an unexpected joyous meeting with a long lost friend.
Children will be captivated with the adventures and more mature readers will appreciate the hidden depths, as well as forgetting their troubles by being transported back to happier, more carefree days.
A genuinely magnificent work that gets into your dreams and never truly leaves you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking 1 Jun 2003
By Null
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It may be a kids book, but I'm 22 and loved every word of it. This contains all seven Narnia books, including the Lion Witch Wardrobe book (which is brilliant, but not the best here, in my opinion). For those of you who have only read LionWitchWardrobe, then this is a must, as it becomes a very deep and symbolic book, which you didnt stand a chance at understanding when you were six. It's also brilliant for reading to your kids, they'll love it even more than you will. And then they'll also get the joy of redescovering it when they're grown up. 5 stars.
