Reviews - What do customers think about The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe?
Neckerchief Mar 1, 2007
I was thoroughly appalled with this book. As an emotionally delicate young boy I felt that the grotesque descriptions of lovemaking were out of tune with the rest of the narrative and I also felt that the parallels with RoboCop were overdone and mutated the true underlying moral of "shoplifting is wrong"
I Thought this book was really good Feb 13, 2007
The title of this book is The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. The authors name is C.S. Lewis. I give it 4 stars. I gave it this amount of stars because the book is packed with very many details such as: Aslan was a big lion with a large gold main and huge paws. I also enjoyed how Aslan was raised from the dead and the stone table breaks. That is just like the bible. Aslan was sacrificed to save Edmond and Jesus died to save everyone. They were both then raised from the dead. They conquered the bad guy and good prevailed. They then went away. It really had me on the edge of my seat when the White Witch took over Edmond and tried to kill all of the other "Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve". She also turned all of the people or animals that crossed her into stone. She thought that she was the queen of Narnia but she was really and evil dictator that wanted to take over Narnia. My favorite part of the book is the battle. I thought it was very cool how Susan (one of the four kids, Peter, Edmond, Susan, and Lucy) shot an arrow at a pheonix and it lit on fire and made a wall of fire to prevent the Witch from getting to them. It really stunned me that the polar bears swung their heads and it took out the entire wall of fire! Then Aslan showed up with an entire new part of their army. They went to the witches house and "destoned" them all. In the end.... I would also recommend any other books writen by this author because he is an amazing writer. Also, the books by Dan Brown are very good. I am 13 and I love to play on the computer
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Jan 26, 2007
The children were puzzled, for they where all just hiding in a wooden wardrobe from the strict house keeper in the England house they were staying in. Now, the four children found themselves in a mystical world called Narnia. The children were amazed to see tiny snowflakes falling, creating a white blanket of snow covering land farther than they could see. Back at the house they came from, it was a rainy spring day. But what the children didn't know is that there were many adventures ahead of them to be explored in this white winter land.
As I read this book, it kept my interest because the writing is fluent and intriguing. The book includes vivid verbs such as, vanishing, stooped, and swish. As well, C. S. Lewis uses great adjectives, like filthy, sulkily, and dreadful. C.S. writes so descriptively that it paints a picture in your mind. The book is also packed with excitement and adventure. There are suspenseful parts where you just can't put down the book. There are battles, there are creatures being turned into stones, and there are kidnappings.
Over all, this is a very intriguing book that keeps you involved in exhilarating adventure. You should definitely read this book and afterwards there is always the movie to be watched. The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe is such a good book, but the movie is just as good.
A Magical Place Called Narnia Jan 26, 2007
This adventuress book, The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe, has a roller coaster of events and is very exciting. Four orphans, Edmund, Susan, Lucy, Peter are adopted by an old scientist. Little did they know they were moving to a mansion, and didn't know what they were getting themselves into. The four children then started playing games inside the house and stumbled across a massive wardrobe. Inside was a magical place called Narnia.
C.S. Lewis put this fantasy together spectacularly. In Narnia there is evil, such as the White Witch, who creates many conflicts throughout the book. There is also something to stop the evil, and that would be Aslan the Lion and the four orphans Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan. A conflict that really frightened me is when Aslan the Lion was close to death. He was captured by the White Witch, and was murdered on a stone alter. I was surprised what happened to Aslan the Lion after he was murdered.
C.S. Lewis did an awesome job writing this novel. In my opinion this is the best fantasy I have ever read. I found that many of the characters came to life and you were really in the story. I highly recommend this novel because of a great plot, interesting characters, and it is well written.
very imaginative story Jan 11, 2007
I'm in college and this book is being studied in my English class. It just goes to show you that adults really can enjoy a good children's book. If you've never read this book, I really consider it a must read. I think it would be great for any age child, I am starting to read it to my 6 year old. It is a wonderful fantasy along with a christian message and good that triumphs over evil.
