    This is the first book where I chronicled my thoughts as I read through it with my son. I don't know how easy it is for y'all to access the record of those here on Goodreads, but if you're looking for a detailed account of my thoughts on the book, you can look there. I'll say this. ...

    ?If ever they remembered their life in this world it was as one remembers a dream.? The real world is boring; it?s mundane, unimaginative and dry. So humans create fantasy as a means of escape. We watch movies or go to the theatre to see something more interesting than the ...

    My greatest disappointment in 'The Screwtape Letters' was that Lewis was not able to demonstrate what made his good people good or his bad people bad. The closest he got to defining goodness was that you could tell the good people from the vague aura of light that surrounded them--and ...

    5 stars to C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Adored it. I must have read it three or four times as a child. Hits all the spots in my reading dreams. a forest. A large family. Talking animals. Secrets. Mystery. Drama. Hidden messages. Saga and series. Every child shoul...

    I loved this book. It was first read to me in 4th grade. We would all come in from lunch and our teacher would read to us for about 30 minutes before we would start class. I remember this book because it wasnt read to us by Mrs Graham, but instead it would be read by Mr Goodwin, her...

    What's it with British literature? How from a relatively small pool of population can such creative writers emerge? I don't like C.S Lewis's non fiction books, but here he knocked the ball out of the park. Aslan, whose antics and decision making and beliefs are difficult to map, is ...

    I hadn't read this in forever, so it was fun to come back to. I definitely remembered it being much more detailed, though. It's a pretty fast read... so that's funny how much my mind added to the story as a kid. But I still adore these books so much!! And I still think this movie wa...

    A Defence of C.S. Lewis...or a brief attempt at such Some thoughts recently crossed my mind in regards to arguments one could offer as a defence of the Christian side of this novel. The main arguments against this novel as a 'Christian allegory' that I have heard are: 1)Aslan is not...

    Novels were not a part of my life until my mid teens and therefore I missed out wonderful reading experiences like the Chronicles of Narnia but while I wish I had read more as a child I am having an absolute ball catching up on all these enchanting books when I can appreciate them on a...

    It dawned on me the other day that I'd never read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. What an oversight! I had to fix this. I knew the story. When we were kids, one of my cousins was all about this book and liked to tell me about it. I remember absolutely bawling my eyes out when...

    Well, can you blame me for loving this? I certainly hope not. It's Christmas and I feel like a little kid and I was craving something to make me feel like I am one, indeed, and this book travelled me to a wondrous world full of heroes and of course a villain. The ride was awesome and I...

    Read as a little girl and loved it. Loved the mysterious places and fantasy lives and I always wanted my wardrobe to enter into a magical land. This book is worth more than 5 stars. ...

    What an amazingly delightful book! I regret not reading it earlier ** Before I begin, let me clarify that as I am not a Christian, I had no idea that this book was written by keeping the image of Jesus (as Aslan) in mind. I just came across this revelation on Goodreads, and it just...

    Every time I read this story, I feel happy. I love fairytales and mythology and I believe this books is the perfect example of how fantasy, mythology and fairytales can be combined and create a strong result. 1. First of all there is obviously the ?The Snow Queen? fairytale by ...

    What a great family read aloud. My eight, six and four year old (and husband) enjoyed hearing this. The four year old flagged a bit but the eight year old got the allegory. A fantastic story, so well told. ...

    This is the story of four siblings who stumble through a wardrobe into a different world. They discover magic, monsters and their destiny. One Christmas, when I was 11 or 12, my mother gave me The Chronicles of Narnia. It ignited a lifelong love of fantasy fiction and reading. "P...

    3.5 stars I've been making a habit of rereading my childhood favorites, and the Narnia series is one many people read. I remember enjoying this book a lot more as a kid, even though this wasn't my favorite book in the series (that was The Horse and His Boy and The Silver Chair) I ...

    I am tempted to give this book a zero but the idea of going through the wardrobe to another land is fantastic. Everything else, however, is not fantastic, including: The over-the-top Christian allegory. The complete absence of dramatic tension - the characters are static and the co...

    Read as a little girl and loved it. Loved the mysterious places and fantasy lives and I always wanted my wardrobe to enter into a magical land. This book is worth more than 5 stars. ...

    What an amazingly delightful book! I regret not reading it earlier ** Before I begin, let me clarify that as I am not a Christian, I had no idea that this book was written by keeping the image of Jesus (as Aslan) in mind. I just came across this revelation on Goodreads, and it just...

    This is the story of four siblings who stumble through a wardrobe into a different world. They discover magic, monsters and their destiny. One Christmas, when I was 11 or 12, my mother gave me The Chronicles of Narnia. It ignited a lifelong love of fantasy fiction and reading. "P...

    3.5 stars I've been making a habit of rereading my childhood favorites, and the Narnia series is one many people read. I remember enjoying this book a lot more as a kid, even though this wasn't my favorite book in the series (that was The Horse and His Boy and The Silver Chair) I ...

    I am tempted to give this book a zero but the idea of going through the wardrobe to another land is fantastic. Everything else, however, is not fantastic, including: The over-the-top Christian allegory. The complete absence of dramatic tension - the characters are static and the co...

    This is one of those books that takes you to a land where you feel like you've come to this place many times before, it feels like home, you keep hugging this book, every time enchanted and when you return to your world. All you feel is MAGICAL. "I wrote this story for you...

    A beautiful read. There's no other way to say it. The story knows what it is, knows the public it wants to catch, children, but leaves details every now and then for we the grown ups to appreciate, turning a great children story into one of The fantasy novels this world has. Great mess...

    Although undoubtedly not the first author to use the literary device and concept of a portal leading from everyday life into another parallel world ? a world which is often magical and wonderful whilst at the same time occasionally frightening and terrifying. However, the eponymous d...

    Every time I read this wonderful story, it's like catching up with an old friend. I've read this particular Narnia book so many different times, but it never ever gets old. I love the fact that I can pick up this (or any of the other Narnia books, for that matter) and step into a whole...

    After I first read this book as a young boy I remember distracting my father one day whilst he was working in his shed at the bottom of our garden. I was about 11 at the time and my father was filing away at something in the vice attached to the work bench. I spotted the pincers/pliers...

    "She did not shut it properly because she knew that it is very silly to shut oneself into a wardrobe, even if it is not a magic one." It's been many years since I first read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe but when it was chosen as a book of the month for a book group I'm in I ...

    This is the first book where I chronicled my thoughts as I read through it with my son. I don't know how easy it is for y'all to access the record of those here on Goodreads, but if you're looking for a detailed account of my thoughts on the book, you can look there. I'll say this. ...

    5 stars to C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Adored it. I must have read it three or four times as a child. Hits all the spots in my reading dreams. a forest. A large family. Talking animals. Secrets. Mystery. Drama. Hidden messages. Saga and series. Every child shoul...

    I loved this book. It was first read to me in 4th grade. We would all come in from lunch and our teacher would read to us for about 30 minutes before we would start class. I remember this book because it wasnt read to us by Mrs Graham, but instead it would be read by Mr Goodwin, her...

    What's it with British literature? How from a relatively small pool of population can such creative writers emerge? I don't like C.S Lewis's non fiction books, but here he knocked the ball out of the park. Aslan, whose antics and decision making and beliefs are difficult to map, is ...

    A beautiful read. There's no other way to say it. The story knows what it is, knows the public it wants to catch, children, but leaves details every now and then for we the grown ups to appreciate, turning a great children story into one of The fantasy novels this world has. Great mess...

    This is one of those books that takes you to a land where you feel like you've come to this place many times before, it feels like home, you keep hugging this book, every time enchanted and when you return to your world. All you feel is MAGICAL. "I wrote this story for you...
