The traditional black-and-white illustrations are present, but no color plates.

a good book
The book I finished is The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The author is C.S. Lewis. He is a great author. In his book it's like he has his own world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
This story is about a world named Narnia. There are four kids named Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Lucy is the one who found Narnia. In Narnia is a faun named Mr. Tumnus, the White Witch, the lion named Aslan, and the two beavers called Mr. and Mis. Beaver. In this story the lion is God and the witch is Satan.
If I had to relate on who I am like in this story it would be Lucy. The reason is she is curious and can wonder off. She is mostly happy and sometimes sad. She is the one who found Narnia. Also Mr.Tumnus.
My favorite part was when the lion and the witch went to war. The reason it is my favorite is because there's a lot more action. One thing about this part is how the witch has a thing that stones animals. So she can stone everything that gets in her way. The lion attacks the witch and I am not going to tell you the rest.
I think who ever is a Christian should read this. But if you are not you can read it too. The person who would like this book would like things talking when in real life they can't talk. I think the girls would like it more. But some guys might like it too.
My feeling for this book is good. I like how detailed it is. Some of it is funny. Some of it is sad. But I love how it ends.

Turns Bad Reviews to Stone!
I love this book because Lewis's writing style puts you right into the world of Narnia with Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. The book starts when Lucy is hiding in a large wardrobe and decides to go deeper. As she advances, the coats and hangers are replaced with tree branches and snow. When she reaches a clearing, she sees movement. She finds that it is a creature that is half man, half goat. His name is Mr. Tumnus. He tells Lucy about the White Witch who rules the land and cursed it to be winter all the time. Lucy then leaves and tells Susan, Peter, and Edmund about what happened. After a while, the four head into the wardrobe and wind up in Narnia. While there, they encounter a talking beaver who tells them of a prophecy that says four humans will save Narnia from the icy grip of winter. The four set out on their journey and encounter many foes that want to stop them. If you want to know what exactly happens, you'll have to read the book. I would buy it, because you will want to read it over and over again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Very Good Book
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, seems like it will be a very good book. I will be reading it for one of my college courses based on C.S.Lewis. This will be my first time ever reading anything that has been printed by the author. So far the things that my professor has made us read are very good and quite interesting. I am hoping to find that with this book as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

By. C.S Lewis
One day Lucy the youngest sister of the four found a wardrobe but it wasn't no ordinary wardrobe. She walked through the wardrobe and it started getting colder and colder. Then there was snow on the ground and she fell into a pile of snow. She got up and found a half goat half man looking at her and he said this is Narnia. A couple days later she goes back but the younger brother followed her in. He was amazed but then the witch came over to him. Edmund was his name. The Witch already knew who he was but Edmund didn't know who she was and she was a bad witch. She tricked them into bringing his other sister and brother to her and he said ok. He went and got Peter and Susan the older brother and sister. They all found out about Edmund and the witch so they didn't go with him but Edmund did and he got locked up by the witch. So the brother and the sisters go and find Asland the mighty lion to save Edmund. Asland ends up sparing his life for Edmund.
The witch kills Asland so Asland can't save Narnia, but the witch forgot about the magic deep down and Asland comes back to life to try to stop the witch. The witch gets her army together and Asland get all of his army together and they go to war. Asland wins the war and there is no more evil in Narnia. The kids go back home. In a matter of a few minutes they were back home.
I think the book is awesome. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes fantasy.

Review on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
This is a review to the book The Chronicles of Narnia: The lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis. I that it was a great fantasy story I reconmend it to all. I like it because it has it all from Witches to talking beavers, from great battles to drama. C.S.Lewis`s style in the book is he likes to kind of stop the story and make things clear to the reader in parenthesis. I really enjoy this because it lets you in to the smallest details. Also Lewis`s mood in this story is for you to be under standing. Lewis even has a certin diction he likes to use in this story. The whole time i ready the story i was anxious to see what will happen next in line. If you liked the movie you shall love this book because its the movie and then some. This is a great sequel to the first book in this series called The Chronicles of Narnia: The magicians Nephew by C.S.Lewis which I also reconmend. The begining of this story starts a bit slow but all stories realy do. The meat of the story is when you start getting anxious for the ending. The ending which is the best part is finshed with a grand slam finale. That will make you want to read all the others in the series. I give a strong opinion to this story saying that it is one of the best fantasy stories I have read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

My review on the chronicles of narnia the lion the witch and the wardrobe
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe<BR/><BR/> The Chronicals of Narnia¿s: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, written by C.S. Lewis is a good book in my opinion. The book is set during the time of World War II. It tells a story about four siblings who find a whole other world inside a wardrobe. When they arrive here they run into many adventures and learn that they are apart of a prophecy, and find themselevs in the middle of a battle, which may alter the future of this world. This book demonstrates the themes of trust, greed, loyalty, and good versus evil.<BR/> Overall I liked this book. I like this book because, for the most part, the book was entertaining and interesting. My favorite part of the book was the final battle. This was my favorite part because, it is the most action-intense scene in the book, and because it shows who will have control of Narnia once and for all. The only thing I disliked about the book is that there wasn¿t enough action throughout the book. Overall, this was a good and entertaing book and I would reccomend it to others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Awesome Fantasy Thriller!!
I thought that The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was a very exciting book!! It kept me on the edge of my seat. This book includes 4 relatable characters sent to the English countryside to escape the bombing of World War II. Together they discover the fantasy world of Narnia, and end up in their own war. The only thing I would change is to make a little more suspensful, like the movie. C.S. Lewis could have been a little more descriptive, too. Overall, it was wonderful!!Was this review helpful?

Review The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
The Chronicles of Narnia The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is full of adventure and is very exciting to read. The way that C.S. Lewis describes the world of Narnia makes it almost seem real and it feels like I am actually there with Peter, Lucy, Edmund, and Susan fighting to save Narnia from the evil White Witch. In this story you will find the many wild adventures of four chosen sons and daughters of Adam and Eve and their quest to find Aslan at the Stone Table. The adventure begins when the four children are moving from there home town to a home of an old Professor who lives in the country. When all of the children adventure through the house Lucy, the youngest, tries to hide into a wardrobe. As she enters the wardrobe it takes her into a vast land of white, where she meets a fawn named Mr. Tumnus. Lucy tells the others about the land of Narnia, but no one believes her until they to venture in. Edmund meets the White Witch and thinks she is the Queen of Narnia. She tells him to bring the others. As the children travel through Narnia they meet Mr. and Mrs. Beaver where they take Peter, Susan and Lucy to meet Aslan. Edmund is captured and fooled by the White Witch. The three children meet Aslan. Aslan, his army, Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan fight to save Narnia. Will they prevail? If you want to find out the fate of these four then I would highly recommend this book for you to read for your enjoyment. I am positive that you will not be disappointed. This book is full of excitement. If you would like to find out what happens to Edmund, Lucy, Peter and Susan then you will just have to read this excellent book.Was this review helpful?

CHECK THIS OUT!
This is the lion the witch and the wardrobe. The writer is C.S. Lewis. The main characters are Peter,Susan,Edman,and Lucy. They find a magic wardrobe, it has its own little world. The story mostly takes place in the wardrobe,but some of the time there in the house. This was the time of war world 2. So the kids had to go to a place where they were safe. They had to take a train to get there. They had to stay with this rich guy with a BIG house. The time was about 1941 in England. It wasn't safe so the kids went to some guys house. The theme of the story is just the wardrobe. Thats where they mostly are in the book. I liked this story alot. It was very good because i like to read adventure storys so this would be perfect for people like me. I think this story can connect to me. I used to pretend i was in a magic world when i was little. Some related books i have read are the rest of the ones in the set.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
