    When the Lion Witch Wardrobe movie came out a while ago, some dude accosted me and said Dude, the fucking right wing media is trying to say that the Narnia books are all about fucking Christianity No shit I figured...

    I love Narnia Of course it s not perfect, but they are such wonderful stories, paving the way for so many other fantasy worlds that followed Sure they ve got the allegorical Christian background, and some of Lewis wording and phrases wouldn t pass as politically correct now But if you can look past these small details, Narnia is a truly magical place, the stories iconic, I will never forget them The Magicians Nephew By gum, said Digory, don t I just wish I was big enough to punch your head The creation story of Narnia Young Polly and Diggory are swept up in the experiments of a magician attempting to find other worlds In doing so they discover the beginning of Narnia, and so start off the tales The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Course he isn t safe But he s good He s the king, I tell you The most well known of the Narnian chronicles Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy discover Narnia through the back of a wardrobe Their battles with the white witch are legendary The Horse and his Boy Do not by any means destroy yourself, for if you live you may yet have good fortune but all the dead are dead alike This one though ba...

    I discovered The Chronicles of Narnia when I was six years old halfway through my first year of school I had discovered the joys of our school library and I still remember the day and the exact shelf where I found The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe It was the lowest shelf, the one that rested on the ground and I had to crouch down to wiggle the book out from amongst its peers By the time I d finished first grade I d read them all and searched high and low for any book series that could be as wonderful and magical as this one had been.Now I could dismiss my love of these books as some quaint, childhood memory that I was unwilling to let go of Certainly that is a factor However, the magic has never faded I ve read them all so many times that I ve memorized them I ve memorized them so thoroughly that I ve told them as bed time stories to children that I ve done baby sitting for Children who have loved the stories and begged to go to bed early so that they could hear MORE about Diggory and Polly or Lucy, Peter, Edmund and Susan or about Shasta and Avaris and so on and so forth.It s not just children, either My husband and I read a book, a proper book for half an hour for our son every night For the past month that has been The Chronicles of Narnia It s gotten to the point where he doesn t want to stop Ou...

    The Chronicles of Narnia The Chronicles of Narnia 1 7 , C.S LewisThe Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven fantasy novels by C S Lewis It is considered a classic of children s literature and is the author s best known work, having sold over 100 million copies in 47 languages Written by Lewis, illustrated by Pauline Baynes, and originally published in London between 1950 and 1956, The Chronicles of Narnia has been adapted several times, complete or in part, for radio, television, the stage, and film Set in the fictional realm of Narnia, a fantasy world of magic, mythical beasts, and talking animals, the series narrates the adventures of various children who play central roles in the unfolding history of that world Except in The Horse and His Boy, the protagonists are all children from the real world, magically transported to Narnia, where they are called upon by the...

    Quick review Terrific fantasy setting and storyline spoilt by extremely unsubtle allegory and as the story progresses excessive Christian preachiness Warning Racial stereotypes abound and may offend.Recommended for adults who thrive in a Christian religious environment or those who can overlook these aspects totally and enjoy the story Not for gullible children, unless accompanied by a discerning adult Detailed review I won t insult the intelligence of respected GoodReaders by giving a synopsis of the Narnia stories I don t think there will be many here who do not know this story, even if you have not actually read the books The stories of the four Pevensie children who discover the magical land of Narnia through the back of a wardrobe is the stuff of legend in literary circles a land which they rule over as kings and queens after freeing it from the enchantment of the White Witch, under the benign yet firm supervision of Aslan the lion.As fantasies for children go, this is a terrific universe filled with possibilities There are talking animals, magical creatures from Greek mythology and English fairy lore, and suitably satisfying and mysterious landscape worthy of exploration again and again So one feels that if only the author in C S Lewis had let himself go he could have produced somet...

    Favorite books ever when I was a kid So yea, sticking with 4 stars because I still love it

  7. Michael Finocchiaro says:

    Read this as a kid and re read later on, these 7 books were a great form of escapism despite the somewhat overbearing Christian symbolism that is pervasive throughout The movies did NOT to the books justice but the animated film about Lion, Witch and Wardrobe was actually OK A must for kids.

    Overall I would give this book 3 stars Below I have provided specific ratings reviews for each story At first I was skeptical about reading the book in chronological order as opposed to publication order Now that I look back at it, it works well both ways I also had some trouble at first with the way the style of writing was presented, but I got used to it pretty quickly The world of Narnia is well written and detailed thanks to C.S Lewis I can safely say that I liked the introduction of every story But, I just personally didn t find it to be extremely appealing as a whole This book nonetheless will be someone else s treasure, not mine I liked it, but I just wasn t too crazy about it The Magician s Nephew 5 stars I would surely want to reread this story again in the near future Such an original plot I enjoyed every minute of it Getting to know the backstory and how Narnia was created was interesting to me Many people didn t like how there were connections with Christianity, but I found it to be quite creative There were a few metaphors between Adam, Eve, and the tree of wisdom Digory and Uncle Andrew were my favorite characters, even though at times the uncle seemed quite cynical My favorite moment ...

    The Magician s Nephew is easily the best story of the Chronicles First of all, it s the least overtly religious There is a creation of the world element, but it s not our world so it seems fantastic than religious Not only is there a veil over the religiosity, there s so much creativity in this story the magical rings, the in between place, the Deplorable Word, the founding of Narnia.Starting with The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, the religiosity becomes noticeable, with the Witch as Satan, Aslan as Jesus, and the Emperor as God And because of the talking, fighting animals, the fantasy seems aimed at children I might have enjoyed it at age 12.The next story in the series, The Horse and His Boy, takes a dark, ethnocentric turn with its unfavorable depiction of the Arab like Calormen shoes turned up at the toe, scimitars, suffixed phrases of praise, son of lineage declarations In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, we get a not quite positive summary of the Calormen they are a wise, wealthy, courteous, cruel and ancient people They bowed most politely to Caspian and pa...

    I can t even begin to count how many times I ve read The Chronicles of Narnia The truly amazing thing about these books is that each time you read them, they magically become complex, meaningful and beautiful I first read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe when I was about seven or eight years old and I did not get it at all Sure, I followed the story, but the deeper meaning was completely lost on me Someone later told me that it was a Christian story and when I read the book again as a young teenager, I picked up on that element of it In the many times I ve read the books as an adult, I ve come to find that the underlying meaning not just of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, but of the other books as well becomes gradually clearer until you can t believe you didn t see it all along The books are like Narnia itself, unfolding like an onion, layer upon layer, Narnia upon Narnia, but each layer is bigger and better than the one above it In order of the events that unfold in the story but not in the order that the books were published , the Chronicles of Narnia include The Magician s Nephew the Narnian creation story Two children living in London are magically tra...
