A great book for adults and children!,
This review is from: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Movie Tie-in Edition (Narnia) (Paperback)
"...a book worth reading ONLY in childhood is not worth reading even then." ~C.S. Lewis
One of the best things about "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is that it has an inspiring and thought-provoking quality that appeals to children and adults equally. Various undertones of the story keep on dazzling and blossoming in reader's mind with every page they read, with every time they re-read this book.
Through Narnia-world the great battle between good and evil is shown as a part of maturing any child into adulthood, into a worthy person. The characters of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are complex and flawed, which makes them only more realistic. The allegorical Christian values bring a special meaning to the story, giving it a true fairy-tale flavor.
This story is as powerful and moving as it is charming. Giving away the plot of the book is spoiling the pleasure of reading. And this book is definitely worth reading.
Author of "Power of Plentiful Wisdom". Available on Amazon.

That quote by Lewis is so good! Too many books for children today are childish, and when you get older and read them, you wonder how you could ever have liked them in the first place. The Narnia books are definitely NOT like that :)
