Journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures, and epic battles between good and evil -- what more could any reader ask for in one book?

Each of the seven books is a masterpiece, drawing the reader into a land where magic meets reality, and the result is a fictional world whose scope has fascinated generations.

This edition presents all seven books -- unabridged -- in one impressive volume. The books are presented here according to Lewis' preferred order, each chapter graced with an illustration by the original artist, Pauline Baynes. Deceptively simple and direct, The Chronicles of Narnia continue to captivate fans with adventures, characters, and truths that speak to readers of all ages, even fifty years after they were first published.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Story Book of all time! I read this book when I was a kid and always loved it. I bought a copy about 10 years ago and have read it probably five times since. I recently bought this for my niece,. The price on this version that has all the book in one is a great deal. I love shopping through the online store. its so convenient especially as I usually know exactly what I want. I'm not really a browser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a reread type of book This series was amazing adn i also love the movies :) it was well written, creative, captivating everything a good book calls for. In fact right now i'm readin git for a third or fourth time :) the only reason i give it a 4 leaf is becasue i didn't like horse adn his boy, silver chair and the last battle. not that weren't good but they were the ones i either enjoyed the least or jsut couldn't get into. Overall though it is a must haev and a classic. personally i would love to see the magicians nephew turned into a movie

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read, for ALL ages! The Chronicles of Narnia is still a current read for me, but I am approximately four books through. Although most consider this to be a child's story, it can also be very intriguing for many adults. For every level of reader this book offers something different. For a child you will notice the fantasy aspects of it and how it teaches you small life lessons such as forgiveness. It also follows the happily ever after format, which is what most children read. For adults, you begin to notice a lot of the comments that C. S. Lewis makes as the third person narrator. He speaks to an adult audience and throws in his own personal beliefs. If you read carefully, you will also notice the similarities to the Bible, especially in "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. All in all this good versus evil themed novel is a good read, with stubborn characters yet still incorporates various aspects of everyday life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Books This entire series is one of the most amazing book sets I have ever read. C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors. For about 40 years his books have been amazing people of all ages. This is definitely one of the few series' I would read to my campers at West Bank. I would highly recomend any of C.S. Lewis's books. His books helped me to reliaze the message behind them. That there is a God who loves us and is always willing to help us when we need it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great introduction to fantasy This is a great introduction to the worlds of fantasy fiction. Needless to say, if a kid likes Tolkien and J.K. Rowling, they'll warm to Lewis' creation. What's most interesting about Narnia is the way Lewis jumps from time to time and character to character within the books. For adults, this single-volume edition is compact and economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommended CS Lewis has become one of my favourite authors, and this series is one of my favourites of his. I first enjoyed it when I was a kid, but then rereading it as an adult I fell in love with it again. I would recommend it to fans of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, among others. Although it would be worth it to buy a complete illustrated boxed set, this one-book edition has all the stories, without breaking the bank.
