I had never heard of Narnia till about two years ago. A friend of mine told me about them and for the next two weeks she read "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" to me over the phone. I was twenty-two years old at the time and I couldn't help but be excited when it was time for the next chapter.
I'm two years older now and I own my own set. The Chronicles of Narnia are some of the best books I've ever read. On any level. There's something in Narnia for everyone, from a child to an adult these books can enrich and bring joy to a rather ordinary existence.
This set along with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings sweep me off to magical lands and fantastic adventures. Sometimes it's like I never want to come back....thank you C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
My rating of this product, however, is based on the quality of this particular boxed set because when I purchased this set for my sister, I was rather disappointed. Although I love the Chris Van Alsburg cover illustrations, and I was pleased to see so many of Pauline Baynes's illustrations in the pages of the books, the reproductions are poor. Basically, the typeface and the illustrations in the text look like they've been photocopied a few too many times, so the quality of the lines is not smooth and clean. Moreover, the bindings are rather cheap and flimsy.
Since this set came from the UK, I was pleasantly surprised with both the speed of the shipping and the postage for it. Hopefully, this gives the seller a high mark, because I am more than pleased with it.
You have two options for the complete Chronicles of Narnia: One book containing all the stories/books (hard or paperback), or a set containing all the stories as separate books (hard or paperback). In case you haven't figured it out already, one book ends up being quite a thick volume, so if you interested in portability, the set may make a better choice.
For this reason, i decided on the paperback set as the hardback set is significantly more expensive (the hardback all-in-one is cheaper). After a visit to the local bookstore, i noticed that there are at least two sizes of the paperback box set. From what i can tell here on Amazon, the set with ISBN 0064405370 is slightly larger than the set with ISBN 0064471195, and only a little bit higher in price. Judging from the size, i think i'll probably go with the slightly larger paperback separate-book set, as i'm assuming the text will be slightly easier to read.
I hope this helps a some of you that may be struggling with which of the many Chronicles of Narnia to purchase.
You will really enjoy traveling by your imagination to far away places, and as soon as you finish one, will want to open the next!

Los libros tienen ilustraciones en algunas páginas, el tamaño de letra es mediano-pequeño, aunque siento que hay mucho marco entre el fin de la pagina y donde termina el texto.
Libros ligeros (no pesados) gracias al papel que utilizan. Da la sensación como si estuvieras leyendo libros de décadas de antigüedad de publicación, esto por el tipo de letra y las ilustraciones.
Me agrada que las portadas no sean relacionadas a las películas.
Los libros vienen enumerados de acuerdo a la cronología de la historia, no en cuanto a fechas de publicación. Listos para leer y comprender la historia.
Los 7 libros vienen en una tipo caja que los protege y sólo se ven los lomos de cada libro.
Very nice artwork, nice box.
