The Lion, the Witch, and the Wordrobe.

The Loin, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
By C. S. Lewis
Genere: Fantasy.


                                       “Next moment she found that what was rubbing
                                       against her face and hands was no longer soft fur but
                                               something hard and rough and even prickly.”
                                                                        -C. S. Lewis.

  

  Emily, Edmund, Susan, and Peter were forced to leave London England due to the air raids. They were sent to a professor’s home in the heart of the county.  The house was so magnificent that tourist came from all over just to see it, but there was much more to the house then any of them knew. When Lucy (the youngest) ventures into a wardrobe full of fur coats she is amazed at the fact that she can't feel the back. Instead of the wood back she was expecting she ended up in the magical land of Narnia. Narnia is an amazing country full of mythical creatures, luckily Lucy met a supposedly nice fawn. But when she runs home to tell her siblings about her discovery it disappears. They all thought she had gone mad, until her older brother Edmund stumbles into the land as well. Will the others ever come to Narnia? What adventures are in store for this small family?
        The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is a classic book. I read the 1974 published version. I love this book because it's so imaginative. C. S. Lewis has baffled me with his amazing imagination. The style of writing is what really pleased me, it was like C. S. Lewis was really telling me the story personally due to how he voiced himself in the story, example: "Well if i described those creatures you may not be allowed to read this story."  I think that C. S. Lewis made the main characters younger because it would definitely make a young child's imagination place them in the characters shoes. I would recommend this book to a person as young as 9. I think that 9 is a good start because of one chapter that younger children may find disturbing. I know that many people have read this book and I think that everyone can agree with me when I say that this is a must read.

  3. You said that you read the 1974 published version and you thought it was imaginative. Why did you like the 1974 version? Did you ever read the newer versions? If so, did you like it? Were there any differences between the two versions? Other than that, I liked this review a lot! I watched the movie a long time ago but I never read the book. I wonder if there are any differences from the two.
