This book is a really good book and it is a weird book.I liked the part when the lion saved peter that was the best best part of the book I think.I hated the part when the white witch cast a spell on the fone and then the little girl found the fone.Then the lion breathed on the fone and then it melted.I love this book.
Lion Witch and Wardrobe review Feb 28, 2007
I read this really good book called The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. The story begins when Lucy discovers the Land of Narnia. Lucy tells everyone about the Wardrobe but no one believes her. Edmund discovers Narnia and meets Lucy there. When Lucy and Edmund came out of Narnia, Lucy told Edmund to tell the others about Narnia, but he said that Lucy was making it up. So, Lucy gets mad at him. One day a lady came to the house to show people the huge house. When the kids hide from the lady they hide in the wardrobe and then walk into the land of Narnia. When they are in Narnia they find two beavers and they invite the children over to have tea. All the sudden they realize that Edmund was missing! They go out looking for him. They all know that he went to find the White Witch because that's where he went the first time he was in the wardrobe. While the kids were looking for him they went to the stone table and meet Aslan (the lion). When Aslan came everything turned into spring. Then Aslan helped the kids find Edmund and get him back from the Witch. But in order to do that Aslan had to sacrifice his life and the Witch kills him. But Aslan came back to life and let out a big ROAR! Lucy and Susan hopped on his back and road all the way back to town. If you want to find out if Aslan and Narnia win the war or the White Witch and her evil crew wins you are going to have to check this book out and read it. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
Read it! Feb 14, 2007
Does anyone like fiction books, if so this book is for you? The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe are about four kids called Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy who move from London, England because air raids. They were sent to an old professor, which they now live in the heart of the country. It was a rainy day so they played a game and happens to fall upon a wardrobe. They entered it and came to a new world called Narnia. Which they don't know that they are the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. And they have to defeat the White Witch to restore peace to Narnia. I recommend The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for children 8 and older. This book has strong felling in this high packed adventure and fiction throughout the book. -Dorian Alexander Eskridge
The greatest book Dec 13, 2006
Have you ever wanted to go somewhere else? Somewhere in which only you can help save everyone in the name of righteousness? This is what happens to Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
The four siblings are sent away from their home because of a raging war. Living in a professor's house, they are given many strictly enforced rules by an employee of the professor. While playing a game of hide-and-seek, Lucy, the youngest of the siblings hides in a wardrobe. To her surprise and amazement, she has found a country all her own, Narnia.
When Peter, Susan and Edmund journey into Narnia along with Lucy, they discover that she is telling the truth and that they are the key to a prophecy. But, Edmund goes missing and they have to fight a battle to not only get Edmund back, but to save Narnia.
Whenever C.S. Lewis is describing settings, I can easily picture the icy castles, the beaver's dam and the frozen lake. One particular quote that sticks out in my mind as a good example is: "There, a beautiful sight met their eyes. The sun was setting behind their backs, that meant that they whole country below them lay in the evening light--- forests and hills and valleys, and winding away like a silver snake, the lower part of the great river."
The 189-page book is a fantastic read for fantasy-lovers. It is always giving thrilling details and extraordinary settings. If you like Eragon and Harry Potter, you will be amazed at this book and other in the series. Say good-bye to dull moments. There's none in this book! So, open your wardrobe. You never know...!
