Author Note

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University. His major contributions in literary criticism, children’s literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of a Silent Planet, The Four Loves, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.

The "New York Times" called this popular fantasy "deeply moving and hauntingly lovely." Illustrations. [Edit review] [Delete review]
From the Publisher

They open a door and enter a world

Narnia ... a land frozen in eternal winter ... a country waiting to be set free.

Four adventurers step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia -- a land enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change ... and a great sacrifice.

Excerpt

Chapter One


Lucy Looks into a Wardrobe


Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. This story is about something that happened to them when they were sent away from London during the war because of the air-raids. They were sent to the house of an old Professor who lived in the heart of the country, ten miles from the nearest railway station and two miles from the nearest post office. He had no wife and he lived in a very large house with a housekeeper called Mrs Macready and three servants. (Their names were Ivy, Margaret and Betty, but they do not come into the story much.) He himself was a very old man with shaggy white hair which grew over most of his face as well as on his head, and they liked him almost at once; but on the first evening when he came out to meet them at the front door he was so odd-looking that Lucy (who was the youngest) was a little afraid of him, and Edmund (who was the next youngest)...

Classic! by Charlet Ringwald (United States), 31 May 2013 19:31
I never read The Chronicles of Narnia books before, because my school library never had the full set, for whatever reason. I also thought they were Christian books, like stories based off morals from the Bible. However, this story has nothing to do with Christianity and I'm so glad I decided to try them in my adult years. This series like many classics are something you should read as a kid, as a young adult, and again in old age. Couldn't put it down! They only thing I don't like about Harper Collins chronological order is it is not how the books were writing and it may create spoilers. Also this particular print of the book has a "Cast of Characters" in the beginning that I tried to avoid to not spoil the other books. I want to read them as they were written.  [Delete review]
