The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (the second book in the series in reading order) is considered as the most popular book in the series but to be honest I find it impossible to decide which one is my personal favourite. It changes all the time for the books, while all generously sprinkled with CS Lewis' magic, will leave you spellbound in different ways.
For example, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, is your traditional fairy story while The Horse and His Boy has all the intrigue and mystery of the tales from the Arabian Nights. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader reminds me of the adventures of Sinbad and Oddyseus and The Silver Chair is a treat if you like reading about heroes deciphering prophecies and fighting monsters to fulfill their quest. In Prince Caspian, we read about a boy fighting for his birthright and The Magician's Nephew tells of the creation of Narnia (with a slight twist on the forbidden apple story!). The Last Battle provides a deeply moving end to the series that will leave you wanting to read the entire series all over again.
All in all, this is a nicely packaged collection that generations can treasure for a very reasonable price. So treat yourself - buy this set and rediscover the magical land of Narnia!
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.
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.Read more ›

Love this book. It is well presented and typeset with illustrations and the text in two columns. Each page is bordered too giving this book a wee bit of an Old World look to it. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Scorpio Dragon
