Trailer ¸ The Chronicles of Narnia PDF by ↠´ C.S. Lewis I love Narnia Of course it s not perfect, but they are such wonderful stories, paving the way for so many other fantasy worlds that followed Sure they ve got the allegorical Christian background, and some of Lewis wording and phrases wouldn t pass as politically correct now But if you can look past these small details, Narnia is a truly magical place, the stories iconic, I will never forget them The Magicians NephewBy gum, said Digory, don t I just wish I was big enough to punch your head The creation story of Narnia Young Polly and Diggory are swept up in the experiments of a magician attempting to find other worlds In doing so they discover the beginning of Narnia, and so start off the tales The Lion, the Witch and the WardrobeCourse he isn t safe But he s good He s the king, I tel Quick review Terrific fantasy setting and storyline spoilt by extremely unsubtle allegory and as the story progresses excessive Christian preachiness Warning Racial stereotypes abound and may offend.
Recommended for adults who thrive in a Christian religious environment or those who can overlook these aspects totally and enjoy the story Not for gullible children, unless accompanied by a discerning adult Detailed review I won t insult the intelligence of respected GoodReaders by giving a synopsis of the Narnia stories I don t think there will be many here who do not know this story, even if you have not actually read the books The stories of the four Pevensie children who discover the magical land of Narnia through the back of a wardrobe is the stuff of legend in literary circ I discovered The Chronicles of Narnia when I was six years old halfway through my first year of school I had discovered the joys of our school library and I still remember the day and the exact shelf where I found The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe It was the lowest shelf, the one that rested on the ground and I had to crouch down to wiggle the book out from amongst its peers By the time I d finished first grade I d read them all and searched high and low for any book series that could be as wonderful and magical as this one had been.
Now I could dismiss my love of these books as some quaint, childhood memory that I was unwilling to let go of Certainly that is a factor However, the magic has never faded I ve read them all so many times that I ve memorized them I ve memorized them so thoroughly that I ve told them as bed time stories to children that I ve done b The Chronicles of Narnia The Chronicles of Narnia 1 7 , C.

Favorite books ever when I was a kid So yea, sticking with 4 stars because I still love it Journeys To The End Of The World, Fantastic Creatures, And Epic Battles Between Good And Evil What Could Any Reader Ask For In One Book The Book That Has It All Is The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, Written InBy Clive Staples Lewis But Lewis Did Not Stop There Six books Followed, And Together They Became Known As The Chronicles of NarniaFor The Past Fifty Years, The Chronicles of Narnia Have Transcended The Fantasy Genre To Become Part Of The Canon Of Classic Literature Each Of The Seven books Is A Masterpiece, Drawing The Reader Into A Land Where Magic Meets Reality, And The Result Is A Fictional World Whose Scope Has Fascinated GenerationsThis Edition Presents All Seven books Unabridged In One Impressive Volume The books Are Presented Here In Chronlogical Order, Each Chapter Graced With An Illustration By The original Artist, Pauline Baynes Deceptively Simple And Direct, The Chronicles of Narnia Continue To Captivate Fans With Adventures, Characters, And Truths That Speak To Readers Of All Ages, Even Fifty Years After They Were First Published Overall I would give this book 3 stars Below I have provided specific ratings reviews for each story At first I was skeptical about reading the book in chronological order as opposed to publication order Now that I look back at it, it works well both ways I also had some trouble at first with the way the style of writing was presented, but I got used to it pretty quickly The world of Narnia is well written and detailed thanks to C.
S Lewis I can safely say that I liked the introduction of every story But, I just personally didn t find it to be extremely appealing as a whole This book nonetheless will be someone else s treasure, not mine I liked it, but I just wasn t too crazy about it The Magician s Nephew 5 stars I would surely want to reread this story again in the near future Such an original plot I enjoyed every minute of it Getting to know the backst The Magician s Nephew is easily the best story of the Chronicles First of all, it s the least overtly religious There is a creation of the world element, but it s not our world so it seemsfantastic than religious Not only is there a veil over the religiosity, there s so much creativity in this story the magical rings, the in between place, the Deplorable Word, the founding of Narnia.
Starting with The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, the religiosity becomes noticeable, with the Witch as Satan, Aslan as Jesus, and the Emperor as God And because of the talking, fighting animals, the fantasy seems aimed at children I might have enjoyed itat age 12.
The next story in the series, The Horse and His Boy, takes a dark, ethnocentric turn with its unfavorable depiction of the Arab like Calormen shoes turned up at the toe, scimitars, suffixed phrases of praise I can t even begin to count how many times I ve read The Chronicles of Narnia The truly amazing thing about these books is that each time you read them, they magically becomecomplex,meaningful andbeautiful I first read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe when I was about seven or eight years old and I did not get it at all Sure, I followed the story, but the deeper meaning was completely lost on me Someone later told me that it was a Christian story and when I read the book again as a young teenager, I picked up on that element of it In the many times I ve read the books as an adult, I ve come to find that the underlying meaning not just of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, but of the other books as well becomes gradually clearer until you can t believe you didn t see it all along The books are like Narnia itself, unfolding like an onion, la
