Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Chronicles of Narnia (7 books in 1 single volume)?
Great for Kids and Adults Alike Mar 31, 2007
Not much to say except I just finished reading the series for the first time yesterday, and I've found the whole thing truly enthralling. One other comment I'd like to make is that there seems to be a big to-do about how to read Narnia. I read them in chronological order. Maybe I was fine with it because I didn't read the whole series either way when I was younger. But to me the entire thing is enjoyable so I say read it any way it strikes you: chronological, original publishing order (which is 2,4,5,6,3,1,7 if you've got everything listed in chronological), backwards, or just a mix of this one and that one. (Although maybe I shouldn't recommend those last two?)
All I'm trying to say is that all the books are good, regardless of order. Read and enjoy them. That's my advice.
Love the Chrons of Narn! Mar 19, 2007
I am very well pleased with my purchase of this boxed set. It has been such a pleasure reading it & it never gets old.
Relive your childhood Mar 17, 2007
There is a great controversy about which order in which to read these books. My simple recommendtion for myself and all those people that loved these books as children (rather than as a Christian Theology Lesson) is to read them as you did as a child. The Lion , the Witch and the Wardrobe , then becomes the natural choice to follow and the story unfolds from there. If you are interested in Lewis and theology then perhaps The Screwtape Letters are more your style another excellent book. As far as Narnia is concerned Fantasy for children and adults alike it rates 5 - Theology lesson - 3.
Outdated but a Must Read Mar 2, 2007
I finally finished this about two weeks ago. I had been reading other books inbetween each of these. Word to the wise, read them in the order they were printed, not how they are numbered here! You can get by but some things just won't make sense or will be spoiled. All and all I thought the series was good. The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe is probably the best and is the most known. I liked Voyage of the Dawn Treader the most after that probably. I think anyone who is a fan of the genre must read these books, but like I said they are a little outdated, but that isn't really a bad thing. They can be childish at times which is why I gave it a 3 instead of a 4. I know this is a box set of children's books, but other serieses I think are more enjoyable to both children and adults on different levels. You should go out there and pick this one up and give it a try yourself no matter what I say though.
