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

I read this book as a child, but decided to reread it after I saw the most recent movie it was made into…surprisingly the movie didn’t veer off from the book too much, unlike some movies like The Phantom of the Opera (still upset about that one)…the book was as wonderful as I remember it…most people know the story of Lucy, Peter, Edmond and Susan reaching Narnia through the back a magical wardrobe…If you haven’t read this book, or haven’t read it any many years, as was the case with me…it’s defiantly worth picking up this book…the magical world of Narnia will suck you in and seduce you into wanting more…it’ll remind you of a childhood where all was possible…and nothing impossible…you’ll make friends with a fawn and a lion, and you’ll fight the evil witch…it’s the classic tale of good vs evil, and good prevails…like any good fairy tale.
The novel, I give 5 stars, just as I did The Magician’s Newphew if for no other reason it captivated me at 10 and again at 24…It has spanned across several decades and has a very long future…
