This review is from: The Chronicles of Narnia Boxed Set (The Chronicles of Narnia) (Paperback)
C.S.Lewis has created a world that will obsess the imaginations of any child who sees it. Narnia is a world where the magical becomes real, fantastic beasts, heroes and people rule a world right out of your imagination.
C.S.Lewis when he wrote these stories wrote as he would when he himself was a child. His life in the country had given him a beautiful setting to place his most famous creation.
The world of Narnia is a marvel to read. C.S. Lewis can be seen writing by candellight in a dark mahogany room, pen in hand and the most glorious tendrils of golden light flowing from his pen onto the page. Talking animals, people, giants, mermaids, heroes and the great Aslan himself melting into the story and with a snap closing the book with a small sence of regret at the story finishing but also his body coarsing with a wild excitment at the wonder and the magic he has just written.
For those with a craving for excitment, tremendous battles, willowy figeurs, beasts, wonderful and beutiful people, for those that long in their heart of hearts for an adventure above anything else you can possibly imagine read these and prepare to be thrown into Narnia.
