    My son recently has been introduced to Narnia, and he loves it every bit as much as I did. The best thing about them is that they give you a grand adventure yet don't have graphic violence or sex. Many new authors seem to be gravitating to that. this is the primary reason I let my son begin reading it.

    Another good adventurous series without undue viloence or sex is The Unsuspecting Mage by Brian S. Pratt. This book is set in another world where a teen from our is thrust into the middle of a struggle going on for ages. He doesn't know why or what he's supposed to be doing, plus he has to figure out how to work magic merely to survive. Give it a try, you'll not be disappointed.

    I remember absolutely loving this series when I was about eight or so, because to me it was just a magical collection. Rereading it as an adult however, I find that much of the magic is now hidden behind the Christian allegory that has suddenly become so glaringly obvious to me that I wonder why I never noticed it before. Not being at all religious, I now have to grit my teeth when reading these books and try to ignore the allegory, although as it has been so closely woven into the text this is rather hard to do! However, the books do retain something of their old charm for me, particularly with Pauline Bayne's simple but enchanting illustrations. My favourite has always been The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which takes the characters on a quest across the sea to find the old lords of Narnia and features my favourite character of the books, the mouse Reepicheep. I have to admit that I can see why Disney chose to film The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe rather than the actual first book in the chronicles, The Magician's Nephew, which I have to confess I have always found inexplicably dull in comparison with the other books. I also find the sometimes blatant sexism in the series pretty irritating - for example, at one point (I won't spoil the books by saying when), Lucy is told that battles are ugly when women fight, and the girls frequently find themselves excluded from some of the most exciting action. However, for a child these books still retain their magic, I just warn you that as an adult, unless you are a Christian and a fan of allegorical writings, you may find this series somewhat heavygoing. On the whole I have to admit to siding with Lewis's friend Tolkien, who couldn't stand his friend's allegorical stories!
    As far as this edition of the chronicles goes, it's a nicely presented and durable collection that should stand up to anything children can throw at it, so it is well worth investing in if you think the series will be read and reread.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    ONE large book

    Please note that this is ONE large hardcover book containing the 7 Narnia novels, not a box set (as shown in the "search inside this book.") It is a beautiful shelf book, but at almost 5 pounds not something you will be carrying around to read.

    That said, The Chronicles of Narnia are wonderful stories, enchanting for children and enjoyable, thought-provoking stories for adults. The C. S. Lewis fantasies remain as some of my favorite stories ever. Also read Giorgio Kostantinos 'The Quest' it really fits well with this book. Enjoy!
