"decided I needed to read this series after hearing all the fundamentalist church goers. I saw the movie first then decided to read this book. Glad I did, how can you ever go wrong with CS Lewis. Started on my adventures to Narnia and never looked back, and honestly this gave me a great reason to never grow up."

    " Beautiful book, the best in the Chronicles of Narnia. An amazing and stunning tale which is unfortunately overshadowed by the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. "

    " I hated this book. It was a book that demanded your full attention. I am easily distracted and had a difficult time giving the book attention it needed. Poly and Diggery were in London and were meeting their Uncle Andrew. He made Poly try on some rings and then she was transported into Narnia. The story continued as Diggery left to chase after her. The story continues in Narnia and in London and the change of location was difficult to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone that really enjoys the Narnia series. "

    " I thought this was the best Narnia book yet. It gave a lot of answers, brought in the idea of parallel universes, and had some fun with creation myths. I really enjoyed this story. "

    " This was a fun book and a great start to the Chronicles of Narnia. I enjoyed the characters and the fantasy of it all. I've decided not to read all seven books in a row. I'll intermingle them among the other books I'll be reading. I'm glad I started this and I look forward to the next, and the next and... "

    " Read this with the you-know-whos and guess what? We loved it. Narnia rocks. Too 'zosted to write a full review right now, but I will say this: the way the kids and I relate to Lewis's writing is remarkable. Earth, magic, relationships, and spirituality. Good stuff. More later. "

About C. S. Lewis

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. His major contributions to literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include the Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent PlanetThe Four LovesThe Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.
