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.

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.

These classics will stand the test of time, but seem to be better read in the original order, with 'Lion, Witch, Wardrobe' coming first... I'm not sure why they changed it (or who changed it.)

I loved this boxed set. I have read these book many times over the years and I am a collector of books. I had purchased the leather bound edition of these book at a local Barnes and Noble store because on the webiste it had said full-color illustrations, but they were black and white. They also only had illustrations on the chapter pages. I believe they have since changed the description online. I was disappointed. This is the only full-color edition I could find. I always prefer hardcover when I can get them but there were no hardcover, full-color editions I could find. So for paperback these exeeded my expectations. The pages are thick and glossy and it includes all original illustrations in full color. It is amazing!! I love it. The kids won't be allowed to touch this one!

These books will shake your world and move you to the core of your being. Lewis' interpretation of heaven in 'The Last Battle' is truly inspired... you can feel God talking to you through Lewis. I'm not trying to turn anyone off by sounding like a religious nut, but these books have profoundly influenced my faith and given me hope and courage (of which I need all that I can get as a 19-year- old living in Southern California). If you aren't looking for a spiritual message (which I wasn't when I started reading them), these books are still full of action, adventure, and Lewis' great sense of humor. Recommended for all ages!

The Chronicles of Narnia does always get the attention it deserves, yet these loveable stories have been a source of delight for millions. Whenever my students are looking for something to read (and they're interested in Harry Potter), I suggest they take a look at The Chronicles of Narnia. My all time favorite in the series is The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Another new series that I've just discovered (and had the privilege of pre-reading) are Robert Stanek's Keeper Martin's Tales (The Kingdoms & The Elves Of The Reaches Book I, The Kingdoms & The Elves Of The Reaches Book II) and Ruin Mist Tales (The Elf Queen & The King Book I, The Elf Queen & The King Book II). I compare these books favorably to Narnia in every way! Keep reading, keeping learning, keep growing!

Few books have really inspired me, but that would seem odd by the looks of me. I'm only 14, but I'm totally hooked on reading. Just 2 days ago I finished this series of books, and I have been wanting to write my own novel since I was 5 or 6, but absolutely nothing really made me think about it, and now I do. I read the first book, The Magician's Nephew, about a year ago but I never really took much interest in it. I think you have to be a bit older and more mature to fully appreciate the quality of these books. Like a good movie, only better, these books will make you laugh, cry, and altogether just wish you could be in Narnia too. Who could ask for more?

I really wanted to find a hardback collection but couldn't find any without the pictures from the movie on them. I bought this set, a little hesitant, but I couldn't be happier with it. The books are well-made and the illustrations are really nice. The stories, of course, are just lovely. HIghly recommend!!

First off, this box set is much smaller than you think. I remember reading a few books in the series when I was younger, so I decided to get this. The books are great, and they look amazing. There's no 'yellow seal' as the other reviewer said, and the box looks beautiful. The series is excellent and leaves nothing to be said. You just have to read it yourself to enjoy it. Each book is short, however, and can be finished within a day. However that doesnt take away from how good the series is.

I had these books as a child and loved them. I still have the first 5 of the books (though in the original chronological order) that were printed in the early 1970's. I did not realize I was missing out on all the illustrations, though. I see now, on my copies, it says "With pictures adapted from illustrations by Pauline Baynes". There is one illustration at the top of each chapter and that is it. I bought "The Chronicles of Narnia Boxed Set (Collector's Ed.)" not only to have all seven books again for me to read and that my daughter can read when she is a few years older, but also to have all the beautiful illustrations with the added bonus of being color!

Timeless. These 7 books are so consistent with each other that you can read them as a whole. You can enjoy them at 14 or 84. It is a fairy tale for all ages. I have had my set for years and will pass them on to my children. When I was young the Chronicles of Narnia inspired me to read more books. They are easy to understand and entertain as well as teaching life lessons. Definitely one of my favorites.

This is a series you can read over and over throughout life. I read these books to my daughters when they were little, enjoying it more than they did, I think! Now I have the set for my grandchildren and will read it to them. This wonderful story of good and evil never goes out of style.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this collection in the store around Christmas time. I'm a life-long Radio Theatre listener and have slowly but surely been collecting all of FOTF Radio Theatre's work. I already own The Chronicles of Narnia recording and I paid well over $130 for them. To see all of them for only under $15.00 was mind-boggling! They are truly wonderful retellings of Lewis' best loved piece. They go beyond the "audio book" and become a true feast for the senses. This collection has accompanied me on road trips since I was 10 years old. I purchased 5 in order to have gifts for everyone. If you want to stay engaged during a long commute, have company during a power walk or want to get your kids to read more, this will do the trick!

I think this may just be the best value I've ever gotten for my money when it comes to a book/CD/DVD purchase. These audio dramas are magnificently done. This is much more than just a narration or reading of the book. It really comes alive. In fact, I much prefer these audio dramas to the recent movies! If you are a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia do not pass up the opportunity to own these magnificent dramas. I would also strongly recommend these to fans of the Adventures in Odyssey radio dramas.

C.S. Lewis is an amazing person. It takes a great mind to be able to creat books like these. They are wonderful, and get hooked easily. You can also learn a thing or two from these, and I love them. I read them over and ever, because they never get old. I LOVE THESE BOOKS.

These seven books in the set are suitable for both adults and children. I first read them while in college and owned them at that time. Realized later that I no longer had them and wanted to re-read all of them so I bought the series again. I have the DVD of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Love this series. Many lessons to be learned by both adults and children. It is fantasy at its very best.
