Book Review: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis


Narnia…the land beyond the wardrobe door, a secret place frozen in eternal winter, a magical country waiting to be set free.

Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor’s mysterious old house. At first her brothers and sister don’t believe her when she tells of her visit to the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund, then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe themselves. In Narnia they find a country buried under the evil enchantment of the White Witch. When they meet the Lion Aslan, they realize they’ve been called to a great adventure and bravely join the battle to free Narnia from the Witch’s sinister spell

My Thoughts:

What’s not to like? A group of children who find a land in a wardrobe, magic, ice queen, a badass lion, and a fight. Action, adventure, and enjoyable story. Personally this book was really good. Normally I read the book before watching the movie. This time I did the opposite. The book was a lot better than I anticipated. Then again, books are always better, in my opinion. The characterization was so clear to me and I was able to envision a lot based on the descriptions.
