What People are saying about this

David C. Downing
"This thorough, informative guide approaches C. S. Lewis's classic story the way Lewis himself read literary texts. It shows readers how to fully engage the narrative as thoughtful adults, while retaining a child's sense of wonder and delight."
David C. Downing, author of The Most Reluctant Convert and Into the Wardrobe
Dr. Paul F. Ford
"This Reader's Guide is the most thorough literary study of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe that I have ever read. It is a must for every serious student of Lewis's first Narnian Chronicle and a gateway to the entire series."
Dr. Paul F. Ford, author of Companion to Narnia and Pocket Companion to Narnia
Colin Duriez
"A practical guide to an adult reading of C. S. Lewis's classic without losing the wonder of a child. It is informative, wise, inspiring and rich with insights into the kind of receptive reading that Lewis passionately encouraged. Not only does this Reader's Guide show the way into Narnia, but also into great literature, and the inexhaustible nourishment that great books provide."
Colin Duriez, author of A Field Guide to Narnia, The C. S. Lewis Encyclopedia and Tolkien and C. S. Lewis: The Gift of Friendship
Peter Schakel
"A Reader's Guide Through the Wardrobe is that rare achievement: a literary guidebook that does not talk down to readers. It offers readable, informative help to adults who want to enjoy, understand and appreciate The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe fully as a literary work, not as a religious parable. Through detailed attention to structure, genres, techniques and themes, it shows how to read not just LWW but all works of fiction with sensitivity and insight."
Peter Schakel, author of Approaching Literature in the 21st Century
