Plot (from Amazon):
Narnia . . . a land frozen in eternal winter . . . a country waiting to be set free
Four adventurers step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change . . . and a great sacrifice.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is the second book in C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, a series that has become part of the canon of classic literature, drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over fifty years. This is a stand-alone read, but if you would like to explore more of the Narnian realm, pick up The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
Why I Read this Book: I hope to read through this series throughout this summer. I have never read this series before.
ReviewThis novel was a great middle grade novel and was better than the Magician's Nephew. I loved the fantasy elements in this book. This series is filled with wonderful Christian allegories! I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!
