Synopsis
One of the most highly respected fantasy novels ever written, THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE can be seen as both an exciting children's adventure story and an allegory about faith. The story begins when the Pevensie siblings (Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy) escape the dangers of World War II-era London by relocating to the country home of family friend Professor Kirke. One day, while playing hide-and-seek, Lucy hides in an old wardrobe and finds herself transported to the world of Narnia, a magical land frozen in eternal winter by the evil White Witch. With the help of her siblings, Lucy sets forth to free Narnia from the White Witch's reign by bringing about the return of Narnia's guardian, Aslan the lion, a quest impeded by a shocking betrayal. Although THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE was the first of the Chronicles of Narnia to be published, many readers prefer to begin the series with THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW (the sixth book published), because it describes the history of Narnia and sets the stage for the adventures of the Pevensie siblings. THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE has been adapted for the screen several times, including two live-action British TV productions (1967 and 1988), a British/American animated TV movie, and a big Hollywood film in 2005.

My first introduction into Narnia was from my wife who, reading it, exclaimed "...what a beautiful picture of Christ." Allegorical somewhat as a piece of children's literature, and not overly accurate theologically, nevertheless, when I saw what happened when Aslan took Edmond's place, then I understood what she meant, and enjoyed the beauty of the picture immensely. And the character of Lucy is the most interesting of the 4 children, picturing the simplicity of trust in Aslan.

This will not disappoint the fans of the movie as the plot is virtually line for line now on the big screen. Wonderful story and again, a clear tone of consequences to every action but written so quaintly that it is neither oppressive nor repulsive.

Again, a book for children and this volume could certainly suck in a small child who perhaps is not quite ready for the worlds (and wordage) of Tolkien or Rowling.

Very quick reading for an adult, it could be savored by a parent or grandparent and child together.

What a wonderful world Narnia is...I was lucky enough to share this world with my 7 year old son as I read this book to him. It is such a beautiful story that can be appreciated by us both. There was the fantasy and whimsy of a world entered into by a secret passage that all kids and I enjoyed. Then there were deeper parallels with bibilical reference that wouldn't be picked up my children probably but adults. I read that these books should be read once as a child and once as an adult and I believe that to be true. The passage describing Aslans death was so deeply written it was difficult for me to read aloud but, not inappropiate for my son to hear. It was a wonderful expirence to share with my child we are looking forward to the rest of the series.

I decided to re-read this book Friday night after seeing at the movie theater that a new film version will be released this coming December. Of course, I have seen the BBC version of the film so many times that its images, and not my own, follow me through each chapter of the book. But that is not a bad thing. The BBC film and the book are both magical. First in a series; sequels include Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew, and The Last Battle.

I read the entire set of 7 little Narnia books every 3 to 5 years: I must! A great story, well told, true at many levels (as good fantasy fiction often is), memorable characters, good humor too. Though this one, LWW, is often listed first or packaged first in the set, it is actually #2 in the chronology of Lewis' overall scheme. Highly recommended at all ages; if fact, I read the full set out loud, chapter by chapter, as bedtime stories for my grandson when he was 4-5 years old. We agreed, by the way, on our favorite characters in the series: Puddleglum, the Marsh-wiggle, closely followed by Reepicheep, the incomparably noble mouse.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (the first book in the Narnia Series) is a great book.

I have read this story many times and have enjoyed it every time I have read it. It is the story of how the Pevensey children find Narnia. In a stately home of Digory Kirke, who is now an ederly man, the Pevensey children, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, come to spend time away from London and the blitzkrig. They are playing and discover an old wardrobe in a spare room and Lucy enters it and finds herself in Narnia, where she meets a faun, Mr Tumnus, and they become friends. Later all the children enter Narnia and meet Aslan, the lion king, who was waiting for them so the prophecy can be fulfilled. But before anything can happen, Aslan must make a heavy sacrifice to restore Edmund. The battle starts in earnest and all kinds of wonderous things take place in Narnia.

This book was assigned reading for me in the 5th grade, and once completed, I immediately read the following 6 stories. Prior to seeing the movie, I picked up the book again (fortunately my husband kept his copies from school) and while I was able to finish it in one sitting, it was still a captivating read. I'm not real sure about the whole Christian-tie-in thing I've heard rumored--that seems like quite a stretch for a book about mythological creatures and witchcraft--but it's still a wonderful moral tale.
