The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 2) The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars

For the record: I object to the renumbering that the idiotic publishers have inflicted on this series. It is simply and obviously wrong to anyone with the ability to actually read and comprehend the English language. I therefore refuse to acknowledge it. And so, I began reading the series to my son starting with this book, rather than The Magician's Nephew as recommended.

I first encountered The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe in fifth grade. As I recall my teacher, Mrs. Gage (at Hillspoint Elementary School) read it to us aloud, a chapter or so every day. I ended up reading the whole series, of course, and loved it.

So it was just a matter of time before I started reading the series to my son. He's seven and a half, and it seemed the right time to start. He'd been asking to watch the movie, and I knew that I didn't want him to see it before reading the book.

Sebastian loved the book. It read well. I found the religious elements to be a bit more flagrant and extreme than I remembered, but they didn't ruin the book. All in all, it was an enjoyable, fun read that is definitely one of our new favorites.

(We watched the movie afterwards, and while there were some notable differences between the book and the movie, they weren't too awful.)
