Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read this with my children. I have 4 children ages 8 and under and the oldest was the only one who really stayed glued to me while I read, the others tended to wander. Which I understand as this is a little out of their grasp. I remember reading this when I was a child and how descriptive it was I could picture Narnia in my head. My daughter would have had me read all night from start to finish. She loved it too, of course! There was lots of questions from her and It gave opportunity to talk about them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!!! Wow although this book is usually read by kids I reccommend this book to people of all ages. I thought this book was great from the first page to the last. I dont want to give spoilers in case you have not seen the movie or read this book but if you like miracles you should read this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from always winter...never Christmas When I read this book as a child, I was swept up in the story, cried for Aslan, cheered for Lucy and wondered what Turkish Delight was. I read it again when I was expecting my now nine year old daughter. I longed for the comfort that this book gave me as a child. I gained something completely different from the story. The book made me think of the plight of the children sent to the North during the bombings of London. When I reread this book again, with my nine year old, I saw the wonder of Narnia once again. The layers of this story are amazing and that is why this is a classic peice of children's literature. My daughter was was just as carried away with the Land of Spare Oom as I was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A childhood classic! The book The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S Lewis is an excellent book, which allows one to use their imagination. C.S Lewis writes as if he is talking to you and telling you the story rather than from a first person point of view. His way of writing was quite effective because he was able to make it less serious and more fun to read. Each character in this book has a distinct personality, such as Susan who is always in charge or Edmund always getting his sisters and brother in trouble. Their personalities stand out and you have the chance to relate to any one of them. Although this book has religious ideas behind it, it is a lovely book which makes one wish that they too could find their own little world to run away to and have adventures. This book is full of suspense, love, friendship, and adventures. Some characters were thrown into the book simply as a way to keep the book light, and funny. The two beavers were the comic reliefs. Tumnus, the faun was used as a way to make one feel anxious and sympathetic as well as to make the reader want to continue reading to see what would come to pass. C.S Lewis tells us in this book that if one continues to try their best they will succeed. It is a loving story that follows the three children as they try to save the beautiful land Narnia, as well as their brother. The way in which C.S Lewis described the characters, and Narnia is beautiful and allows you to picture the setting that he pictured. I enjoyed this book more than any book I have ever read, solely because whenever I need to escape I can read it and feel as if I am in Narnia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Beats this Classic! I first read this novel when I was a pre-teen and I still find myself enthralled with it as an adult. This book trancends time and is a wonderful read whether you're seven or seventy. This book must be read more than once to do it justice, it has many layers and I find myself discovering new things about Narnia and the metaphors used by Lewis in this enchanting novel. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend this book to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Before JK Rowling there was CS Lewis This is a masterpiece of magic for children and adults. With the new movie out from Disney it will only introduce the wonders of a mysterious wardrobe to a new audience. Lewis' moral rigor and Christian intellect blend a delicate balance of a mythical tale designed for young minds. Characters are larger than life, riverting, rich, and personify deep values close to Lewis heart. In the battle between the fallen (Queen Jadis, the White Witch) and the risen (Aslan, the Great Lion) .. Lewis' imagery drives home the point that some things are just plain wrong, others are just plain right, and the reasons are for one's own good and the good of others. Curses can be broken and that is a beautiful rendition of what the power of love and light symbolized. One doesn't neeed to be a religious person or raised a Christian too get the moral of this story - that the reward for dignity out of love rather than fear - is well worth the battles within and outside of ourselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freaking Amazing This has got to be one of my favourite books EVER...It was truly amazing. C.S.Lewis out-did himself in this book (it makes up for the rest of the Narnia collection which wasn't that great) my imagination was soaring to other places that I hadn't thought of and I truly enjoyed it..I have been reading that book at least once every year (since I was about 8) I am telling you, you will love it. I suggested my cousin to read it and she wasn't all excited at first but she read it and lets just say we have another fan..anyways my thoughts to you READ IT, BUY IT, LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe This is an absolutely amasing pair of cassettes. Cast is perfect,there's a sound effect for every detail in the story. You can even hear people stepping on the ground! Plus,it's adding to an already wonderful story. Reading this book is fun, but listening to it is even better! So put in the cassette,press play,and get yourself ready for a magical display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historical The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe althought not my favorite book of all time is definitely in my top 5. C.S. Lewis combines imagination, mythology, legend and truth in his Narnia chronicles. This book has everything a reader could want, adventure, comedy, drama, action and a shred of mystery. It will leave with mystified and hungry for more. Good thing there are more books in this amazing and historical series. A must read for young and old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe As a child I loved this book as well as the entire Narnia Chronicles! I was transported from the wardrobe into Narnia to experience the warmth of hot tea and a fire to the coolness of the ice queen. As an adult I can read these timeless classics to and with my own children. They are as enthusiastic about them as I was. They are great books, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe I think that this book was great! The first one, The Witches Nephew wasn't as exciting and was a little boring. It was totaly different from the frist one but still connected with the first one. I loved it and I would seggest it to anyone who likes Harry Potter (i've read all 4) or other amaginary stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best book in the World The best books take you somewhere where you would like to go, and always want you to go back for a visit. With Narina it is exactly like that. The classic tale of good battling evil, scenes to delight, a land where we would all live if we could only find our own wardrobe....Give me Narnia any day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe was an astonishing book in many different ways. I found the book to be very interesting and different from other books. I liked the fact that the book was a fairytale but grew to be more realistic. I also liked how the author portrayed the characters and was careful describing them . The book was really good and I would recommend it to kids of all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best book i have read yet!! A very good book especially for kids such as myself. Very descriptive and very easy to understand. My personal opinion is that it is worth 5 stars because of the many adventures the children had and the detail the author had put into the book. For example "The Witch", she was very easy to understand what she looked like because of how the author described her. My favourite character was "Aslan the Lion" because he was the big hero... -Aaron Freedman, 12

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! The first Narnia Radio Theatre production, this dramatic presentation is filled with movie-quality sound effects, and wonderful music. I have listened to it at least 5 times (so far)! Younger children may find the pace of the story too slow, but older children will enjoy it. I highly recommed this, and the other 2 Narnia dramatizations by Focus on the Family Radio Theatre, The Magician's Nephew, and The Horse and His Boy (neither of which are available from Chapters right now, by the way). Buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe I picked this book because it can be enjoyed on different levels by adults and children. It has all the elements necessary for a great book: the fight between good and evil, escape to another world, a journey for the hero, great character development and excellent descriptions. I remember reading this book as a child and being so wrapped up in it that I felt I was right there in Narnia. I also wished that we had a wardrobe so I could go to another place through it. I can still close my eyes and picture the events that took place. I'm sure that this book will still be a classic one-hundred years from now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe This is the book that introduced me to the world of reading. I had no idea what to expect when a teacher handed me a well-worn copy. What I found was a story that challenged my imagination and opened the doors of possibility. I discovered that going through the wardrobe with Lucy was as easy as opening a book to the first page, and the other side of that wardrobe could lead anywhere at all. I devoured the whole series over the summer holidays, and haven’t been able to stop reading since.

Employee Review

I somehow managed to miss reading this book as a child. I'm very glad I finally discovered it. It is an enchanting and enduring story of youth. It tells of every child's desire (at some point) to disappear to a different world from the one they must live in. This is high on my list of books to read to my children, however, it is definitely worth reading no matter what your age.

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
