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? The book that has it all is the lion, the witch and the wardrobe, written in 1949 by C. S. Lewis. But Lewis did not stop there. Six more books followed, and together they became known as The ...

Customer Reviews of The Chronicles Of Narnia (Adult)


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chronicles Of Narnia Set This is a great addition to the library of fantasy fans. C. S. Lewis shares his view on writing stories of fantasy and adventure as well as the original stories of Narnia.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This book was... Unexpected. As someone who watched the movies before reading the books, I admit I was sort of shocked to learn that there was a religious tone to the novels. The ending was a shocker, and not a very happy one for me. I did not expect any of the events that took place, and the book was at times overwhelming. I enjoyed the Magicians Nephew the most. I loved learning the origins and creation of Narnia. The White Queen was my favourite character. Her role was so well written, I shivered at the description of her in the decaying world of Charn. It was beautiful, dark and mesmerising. The wood between worlds is an amazingly creative concept as well, and was also very well described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chronicles of Narnia Its great to have the tales in one volume and the writing and stories were easy to understand. I also think that ordering them chronologically rather than publication date made the flow of the stories better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for every kid Nice to have all the tales in one place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great escape from reality I found all the Narnia Chronicles simple to understand, yet difficult to put down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seven great books. I liked this book because there was a great transition between the books and because C. S. Lewis really managed to connect with the readers. The author put what people think (but never say our load) onto paper. It's kind of a review after a long day when you escape to the world of Narnia. Hey, it got me through my exams:-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Captivating This series was very interesting to read. If you are considering it, I would advise to rent the first ( The Magicians Nephew ) from the library before hand. Only because I have a feeling that you need to be really into this kind of thing before you decide to commit to it. Even I was sometimes bored at parts in the stories, but there is always an exciting event to bounce your imagination back into the story. When you do decide to read it, don't ever give up on it, bacause it takes patience in any new book! Enjoy! I did, so I'm sure you will.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All Seven are Amazing Narnia is a seven book series is a great work of fantasy, which takes you to a new land. Each book is different from the rest. The first book: The Magician's Nephew is about two people who become friends during their summer in London. One of their uncles is a magician, and he sends the on an adventure. This adventure sets them into the land of Narnia. The second book in the series is: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This book is about Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy who discover the land in the back of a wardrobe. The young group of four discover the magic and evil in the land. The third book is: The Horse and His Boy. This book is about the "golden age" of Narnia. Peter is High King. The fourth book is the Prince Caspian. Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy travel once again to Narnia, but the once happy kingdom has now changed. And once again, they have to try and save this wonderful place. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the fifth book in the Narnia Series. The Dawn treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in hundreds of years (after all, the lakes and oceans were frozen). This book takes the young four towards aslan's country at the end of Narnia. The Silver Chair is the sixth book and is about a mystical quest. Two people escape bullies at school through a door. As soon as they enter Narnia, Aslan gives them a quest. They are put in danger, but they must pursue the quest if the Prince is to be saved. The last book, is called the last battle. Everything is turned upside down, and someone/something is impersonating Aslan. Once Eustace and Jill find the real Aslan, peace will once again be restored to Narnia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Amazing After reading The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe in public school i had pretty much forgot about these books. When I saw that the movie was coming out last december, I remebered that there were more books in the series. They are the most amazing books I have ever read. They really make you feel good. And for a childrens book i was on the edge of my seat more than once. I would recomend this book to people of every age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic for all ages This set of books has always had a special place in my heart. I'm not an avid reader, but since I received the set as a gift when I was younger, I've never forgotten the magic and intrigue of the writing. Now I'm buying the Chronicles as a gift for my godsons, to set them out on the adventure that I have known!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AAAHHHH!!!! I'm Obsessed!!!!! I buy most of my books because I've never read them before but I bought this even after reading it a thousand times. Now I'm so scared of ruining the beautiful cover that I barely ever read it. But I felt as if this story was a part of me and when I didn't have these books I felt like I had this empty hole in me. It''s so hard to explain but I after reading these chronicles I longed to buy them and have a copy of my own. I maybe crazy but these classics are a MUST-HAVE!!!! I dunno how some people can just walk by this book and not even glance at the cover!!!! I could stare at for hours and never get sick of it!!!
