Excellent

Clear style, great plot, delightful characters

I can read it too quickly!

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the story of four children who were evacuated from London during the war. They were sent to stay with an old professor out in the country, miles from anywhere. One day, when it was raining outside, they decided to play hide-and-seek; in the process they...

Not many people haven’t at least heard of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, even without all the fuss that is being made at the moment with the nations top 100 books. The reason.. Well it is quite simple, it is one of the best loved childrens stories. And as it is over 50 years since it was...

When Narnia was released in the cinema last year, I was asked if I wanted to go and see it. And did I accept this invite? No! At that time, all I knew about the film was that it was fantasty-based, and seemed a bit 'kiddish' (though why this was a problem, I have no idea - it doesn't usually stop...

“Enter a New World.”

published 22/02/2006

Great Story, Characters and Descriptions.

None.

I have always enjoyed reading books since a very young age and when I was younger I did read the famous Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. My favourite was always the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe which I am sure was many peoples favourite book. I forgot about this book until late last year...

“Through the magic wardrobe”

published 20/02/2006

More adventures in the mystical world of Narnia

Too Short!

The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second in the recommended reading order of The Chronicles of Narnia, although the first to be written. Having finished the preceeding The Magician's Nephew I eagerly started this book. As I mentioned in the Magician's Nephew Review my family and I were...

“Narnia Revisited”

published 16/05/2005

Great book for kids, nice plot and action sequence...

Prose seemed a little bland to me, less symbolism ...

The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe has long been regarded as a classic of children's literature. I was an adult when I read this for the first time so obviously have a slightly different perspective than a child reading it, but I'll do my best to be objective. (Many read it as a child so have...

Fantastic book for all ages!

It's not true! I wanna go there.

The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe is a brilliant creation by author, C.S Lewis, who has written a wide range of children’s books that are just as readable for adults alike. This story is the second book of The Chronicles of Narnia. THE SETTING Narnia is a land created by the great Lion...

None!

For any Christian child this is a vital story. But for the rest of the population it is just as enchanting. It covers the issues at the heart of human morality in a beautiful and heart-wrenching narrative that is just as relevant now as when it was written. THE AUTHOR Clive Staples Lewis was born...

“Where will the story go now?”

published 09/11/2008

Great book

Didn't intrigue me!!!

Now I shall not say that this book was the best of the series because quite frankly, I liked the first book called The Magician's Nephew. I really don't know why but probably because of the woods between the worlds because that bit was described perfectly and I could imagine being there, in the...

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second of the seven books which make up the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, although it was actually the first one written. It is by far the best known of the stories, and even more so following the very successful film dramatisation of 2005. It is...

I loved this and the other Narnia books as a child, my brother and I won a fancy dress contest as Aslan, him, and the White Witch, me. So, what with the movie coming out soon (today, I believe), I thought I'd re-read it as an adult. I picked it up and didn't put it down again until I'd read the...

Excellent read

Finished it too fast

I first read this book when I was at lower school and loved it too bits. I have since bought all seven of the Narnia books by CS Lewis as well as some of the televised versions that are available. This is actually the second book in the series, but it was the first that Lewis wrote, and is...
