What the community says about The Chronicles of Narnia
- "I love C.S. Lewis. I'm a Christian and I see the story of us behind the story. But even if you aren't, the story is a good story and one worth reading. The story will resonate with you. These are classic tales told in a different time so the telling is a little different. And it's C.S. Lewis. He has a unique voice. The set is a great gift idea for any kid, young or old, and I would probably add to this the motion picture versions of some of the tales. "
- ""The Chronicles of Narnia" is one of the most important series in the entire fantasy genre. It is a cornerstone which has become the foundation of the modern Fantasy over the decades. A masterfully crafted story with the spectacular worldbuilding and plot. All that being said, I doubt this solution fits the topic. There is nothing in Narnia to make it so essential specifically for the Christians. It is a great book for everyone despite their religious beliefs. "
- "It was described as being "Used - Good", but it arrived in excellent condition (no noticeable tears on the book itself with only slight page wear). This version came with a book jacket which is identical to the hard cover itself, so I threw away the jacket which was well worn. Also, the book description says "text only", which is strange, because this copy has tons of the original illustrations in full-color (I'll try to post pictures soon)."
- "The Chronicles of Narnia is one of those books that gives you nostalgic feelings. Every time I read this book it makes me think of my childhood. It is a very powerful book that will open many doors into your imagination. I do not recall Christianity being tied into the book but I also was not looking for it. "

- "The Chronicles of Narnia are a favorite series of mine from childhood. There are some fantastic lessons about how to treat people and they truly carry you away into the world that CS Lewis created. I'd recommend the series to young adults and grown adults as well. They really paint a vivid picture of the fictional world in which they take place and there's no end to the excitement. "
- "I must be weird but I found The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis to be a bit boring. This story requires a lot of patience as the plot tends to drag along. I know this book is highly rated, especially for those who like fantasy and mystical creatures and gods, but I just didn't really enjoy the story."
- "This was a mainstay of my childhood and served as an introduction to high fantasy that would shape my taste in literature my entire life. The relationship between characters in this book and religious figures is something most people are already familiar with, but I don't want to spoil it for those who aren't. I recommend it for anyone interested in fantasy, myth, or religion."
- "The Chronicles of Narnia was a decent book and movies in terms of being epic fantasy. But what happened to Lord of the Rings or any other perfect fantasies. The Chronicles of Narnia has the advantage that the readers can start reading it in their childhood and read again in their adult life."
- "One of my favorite series of all time. I've read and re-read these books multiple times, and I'm already looking forward to reading them again. I love Lewis' writing style, I love the storyline, the characters, the world he created and the overall imagination involved. The books are technically children's books, but I enjoyed them as a child and an adult."

- "The Chronicles of Narnia is part of a magical set of fantasy books where animals can speak and children travel to unusual places. It has plenty of illustrations to go along fascinating detail. I would hardly call this overrated. In fact, it is admired by many and regarded as a classic. "
- "An great work of early fantasy that stands alongside the likes of Lewis' good friend Tolkien. But, the Christian overtones are sometimes a bit much. That being said, it is stronger as a fantasy novel then as a Christian allegory. Lewis does a much better job discussing Christianity through his essays. Some very cool speculative fiction concepts. Walking into a world contained in a closet and time being warped while you remain there. The talking animals in the novel are not only guides but close friends to the characters. Some of the most memorable anthropomorphic characters in Mr and Mrs Beaver and Azland. "
- "This is great because it is well written and widely read by teens. No matter what, they will like the writing and there is a social aspect to this too as they can talk about it with their friends. The series is great in terms of bringing magical life close to them."
- "The Chronicle of Narnia is one of my all-time favorite book collections. I can remember my imagination running wild as a kid as a read about the exploits of the characters in Narnia. I couldn't put the books down. I was excited to begin each text anew and recommend these books to anyone who, both young and adult. C.S. Lewis' writing style will enchant anyone who gives seeks to visit Narnia."
- "The Narnia series is a classic for a reason, surely most people are familiar with C.S Lewis' work of fantasy. Recently I've been interested in indulging my INTJ personality and decided to dive into the Narnia series on recommendation from a friend. Although I loved the books both for the rich storytelling and skill with which Lewis paints the world, I found it far too fantastical to appeal to my personality type. I think for future endeavors I will stick to non-fiction."
- "This is a classic series of books that was also made into movies. Breathtaking world of fantasy characters and fantastic adventures enjoyed by kids around the world for over 60 years. Good always triumphs over evil in these incredible books! These tales are a must for children as well as adults who love fantasy."
- "This selection is one of the best series of books I have ever read, regardless of genre. I read the entire series multiple times throughout my childhood, and enjoyed reading through them again with my own children. The movies that have been made of some of the books just don't capture the magic of these books. Everyone should read them!"
- "I am always struggling with what books to suggest for my non-reader to get her to read. This is one of the books that she actually liked and read all the way through. I don't know if The Chronicles of Narnia would work for every non-reader, but in my opinion it is worth a shot."
- "Considered one of the best must-read books for tween boys, The Chronicles on Narnia takes one to imaginative places in a magical world of fiction. Having read this to my daughters, it is also a very good read for boys. The illustrations are great as it lets the children's imaginations run wild. The book focuses on good and evil as well as happy endings."
- "C.S. Lewis' imaginative creation of whimsical creatures and inquisitive children, this classical tale is akin to a lighter and more child like in nature version of a Lord of the Ring story. During the early 1900's a family of young, bored children discover a portal in their closet to another realm and together, they venture into this new mysterious world, to aid its inhabitants and grow stronger along side one another, to fight an evil force that threatens their way back home."

in What are the best fantasy novels"This is a must-read and one of the most thought-provoking fantasy books available. Lewis's characters are real and complex, and his writing style is simple. Lewis doesn't use fancy wording or strange metaphors like a lot of other fantasy writers. "
- "This book brought me right back to my childhood. This is about the 4th time I've read it NOT including watching the movies. Fun read and packed with practical wisdom.I recommend this book because it truly is awesome. It is an adventure, a dangerous, funny, heartwarming, and daring book. A new adventure awaits at every corner."

in What are the best fiction books"Although this is a famous book, or rather, a famous series of books, I did not enjoy to as much as I thought I would. The writing seemed to be aimed at children more than adults. I also wish that the author had not injected his own personal beliefs into he story so much."

in What are the best children's books"I loved reading these books to my daughter at night. We started when she was quite young, in part because we showed her an early adaptation of this book (it was on the BBC). So sweet! She grew up with that and then saw the most recent Hollywood adaptation. These books are still on her shelf (she's a teenager) and she loves them. I remember them from my own childhood, of course, so I hope that she passes them down to her children. The series is truly one of the best out there for kids. "
