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.

Format: Paperback
Young Shasta grew up in Calormen, but always felt a drawing towards the north. When a nobleman rides up one day, and begins negotiating with Shasta's father to buy him, he learns that he is really a foundling from Narnia. Shasta wants to escape, and opportunity presents itself, when the nobleman's horse begins to talk to him! It seems that Bree was also stolen away from Narnia, so the two form an alliance and head north. But there are many adventures and surprises along the way. Plus, it seems that somebody has their eye on Shasta!
I love this book! I gather that there is some disagreement as to the order in which you should read the Chronicles of Narnia, but this one is well placed at #3, falling as it does during the later stages of the High-Kingship of Peter. This book has a wonderful Arabian Nights feel to most of it, and it is filled with adventure and suspense. I enjoyed reading this book to my children, and they enjoyed hearing it. We all recommend this book to you!

Format: Paperback
I remember this book being the worst book of all the Narina books when I read them at the age of twelve but re reading it makes all the difference. The book was both interesting and the characters were very captivating I think that its one definitely for the older reader rather than the younger readers because the magic of Narnia is captured in a different and unique way which it is not in the others book. I would question the portrayals from the book a little bit but it's not racist rather it has a subtle dig at some non - Christians but it does not in anyway flood the book with them. It is all in all a good book which I would highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This is the third book in the Narnia series - if read in chronological order. This is a fun children's book that takes us back to the wonderful land of Narnia. Peter is still on the throne and Aslan is around. Shasta is an orphan, running away from a fisherman's life, helped by Bree, a horse from Narnia, also running away. On their adventures they are pushed together with Aravis and her horse and they see all types of adventure on their bid to get to Narnia - including lions, deserts and war.

I really enjoyed this book. Lewis is a great writer, engaging his audience. This is a book primarily aimed at children, and it is easy to see why they are popular, however as an adult I also enjoyed this book, and recommend it to adults too.

The characters were great. Aslan is still based loosely on God and this could be seen through the way he guided the children and his other actions. He is still my favourite character, however I loved Aravis, a strong willed girl who took no nonsense and Shasta as he grew up and became noble.

The whole book was engaging and fun. It was exciting and easy to get into. Short and sweet, a book well worth reading.

8/10

SAFE READING - NO SPOILERS

Little needs to be said about the book except that, in this audiobook, it is unabridged. (Choose carefully to avoid the abridged versions if you want the complete Lewis!)

Bought for the grand-children (too young yet but they do a lot of car-travel), it is well produced, read well and a good companion to the book. I now have the whole series.

I enjoyed it too!

Format: Hardcover
For some reason this is the one book that seems to be forgotten in the Narnia Chroncles. Perhaps this is because it doesn't really fit in with the genral stroyline of the rest and indeed only the very end is set in Narnia. However, in my mind its the best and the descriptions of the Calormenes, (based on the old Central Asian civilisations perhaps?), are great. Read it.

Format: Paperback
Such a good book, very adventurous about a boy and a girl running away together and meeting up along the way both with different stories and backgrounds.... riding on horses that talk venturing towards narnia...

Its such a great book so different from the rest but still captures the magic that all the books hold.

I recommend it for anyone who enjoys other NARNIAN BOOKS/ADVENTURE/HAPPY ENDINGS/moments of happiness and moments of slight fear (not enough fear to scare anyone)

Format: Hardcover
For some reason this is the book in the Narnia series that I return to most often. Set in the "golden" age of the four kings and queens, it deals with the travels of a small boy, Shasta and his companions through the land of Calormen. Complete in itself, it evokes the mysterious east in its description of Calormen and its customs. I look forward to introducing it to my children when they get a little older.

The story line constantly moves the characters from one colourful, exotic scene to another. Expanding on events in earlier Narnia tales this story links in very well, however the interpretation given also allows this tale to stand alone, and will entrance listeners regardless of whether they have encountered other Narnia adventures or not. A magical story that will thrill young and old.
