The Chronicles of Narnia set are what dreams are made of. The Witch, The Wardrobe, The Lion is a longing journey to our imagination. The writing of Narnia is fantastic. The characters and creatures are the best to be found. But the real magic comes when not only the time you find these books to be your inner fantasy world to bloom, but that of your children. From day one I have been enthralled by the magic of Narnia. But the real magic happened to me when I saw my son reading Narnia to himself in his room. Hours passed, he continued 'till he fell to sleep. The following day when he came home from school he resumed reading from which he left. For three days my son continued through the first book to it's end. My little boy never before showed any interest in reading before, especially since the time he suffered a serious illness when he was young. The magic of Narnia has done more than I could have dreamed for my little boy. Thank you.

The "Narnia" stories themselves are wonderful, of course. The major problem with the set is that the books are numbered to correspond with the chronological order in which the stories are set -- rather than the chronological order in which Lewis wrote them. Narnia beginners will find this confusing. The excellent illustrations are the originals but have been more recently colored by the original artist.

    A reviewer

    Nothing against the books themselves...they are wonderful stories, but be forewarned that each book in this set has a yellow seal in the corner that says 'By the author of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Now a major motion picture.' TACKY.

    Not as good as I thought.

    These books are kind of boring. They are hard to understand. I think Harry Potter is waaaaay better than these books. These books are for older ages,

    ONE WORD: BORING!!!!!

    This books has to be the worst book i have ever read, ok don't get me wrong he is a great writer but the story does't seem to get nowhere and all the time is the same thing. I bought this book thinking that it was going to be good, but at the end i was like ' finally the ending.' I do like the way he writes, it's just the book. The only one i liked was 'The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe'

    It wasn't too interesting

    I read the first 2 for my book report and it was confusing. In the first book, its about a ring that takes you to Narnia and the other is to take you out of Narnia. After that, it got way out of the topic.
