    "By far one of the best fantasy / adventure series ever written, J.K Rowling's Harry Potter books have become a staple of common and pop culture. Not only will you better understand all the references that come from these books, but you will really get sucked into the wizarding world that J.K. fleshes out of the long, but highly enjoyable, books."

    "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is the first in The Chronicles of Narnia series, and it has a lot to offer. Children and young adults will be fascinated by the idea of opening a closet into another world. When I first read it, I had to go feel the back of my closet a few times, just to make sure. The Chronicles of Narnia is worth a read, both for the fun adventure and for the serious themes. Unpacking the Christian allegory is worth it, for children and adults."

Rollins tells a story of Antarctic exploration peppered with man-eating monsters that may stir the passions of devoted fans and people biased toward novels about exploring the unknown, but it lacks the imagination of a true fantasy novel.
