Reviews - What do customers think about Roar!: A Christian Family Guide to the Chronicles of Narnia?
An Excellent Read, But Lacking Originality Sep 10, 2008
Roar! is an excellent guide for families searching for external essays on Lewis' children's masterpieces. I found the sections for the parents and children easy to differentiate, and even found parts of the children's sections enjoyable and entertaining to read (this coming from a 22-year old). But when it comes to some of the essays, I found that there was really no originality between one essay from the next, as they seemed to reiterate quite a few things. Some of the essays positioned in the earlier pages (i.e., those essays entitled "Dad's Reading Chair") also didn't make any initial sense, until, as I read on in further essays, I was able to slightly understand what the author was intending.
It's a good read for those seeking external help on teaching The Chronicles to their children, and the illustrations are lovely; but, if you fall under any of the other categories not found in family or artist, then I wouldn't recommend this book.
Nothing New Here... May 21, 2008
I was deeply disappointed with Roar!: A Christian Family Guide to the Chronicles of Narnia. Everything from the title to the written content seems to be lifted from A Family Guide to Narnia: Biblical Truths in C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, which was published two year prior to Roar!... My advice: don't waste your money. A Family Guide to Narnia: Biblical Truths in C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia is cheaper and better written.
Great Book ! Sep 13, 2007
Excellent discussion guide for anyone wishing to follow Christ. This book is a wonderful help - not only for a deeper understanding of the Chronicles of Narnia, but for seeing Jesus, and the Word of God in these books. In depth essays of important discussion topics, and thought provoking questions throughout.
Family Guide to Narnia Apr 4, 2007

Lewis besides fun quizes and articles addressing problems parents might have with the Chronicles(magic,violence,etc.)This book will help you and your kids get the most out of Narnia.
A great discussion starter Jun 18, 2006
This book was really a surprise for me. It covers all seven of the Narnia books chapter by chapter. It also has a lot of other information regarding Narnia, from listings of characters to Biblical allusions. I found some of the scholarly essays to be rather fascinating! (What do you make of all the wine and spirits that flow in a children's book?) We are reading the Narnia series together as a family and stop at each chapter to discuss the questions in "ROAR!" It has provided some great discussions and made me think twice about some of my own answers. My kids reread the books after we complete them together and "ROAR" is always nearby. We may have to buy another soon as our current copy of "ROAR!" is in danger of being read to death!
