Grade 3-6-This classic tale celebrates its 50th anniversary with a delightful audio rendition. Actor Michael York's reading is a perfect match for this story. The narration is clear and distinct, and York's soft and soothing British accent adds the right touch. Listeners will fall under the spell of this master storyteller as they join Peter, Edmund, Lucy and Susan on their travels. Beginning with Chapter One when Lucy looks into the wardrobe and discovers Narnia and the faun, readers will find that this timeless story can still work the magic that C.S. Lewis intended. In this action packed tale, the four children take part in several adventures as they travel through Narnia on their quest to rid the country of the Witch and her followers. Narnia fans will want to listen to this story over and over again, and new fans will be created as they listen for the first time.

Notable are the Christian reflections of this tale, of what it's like to go down a path of sin with Edmund as he makes his way through the cold to the witch's castle, having fellowship amongst themselves at the dinner table, and Aslan's ultimate sacrifice, while being a being of immense power, allowed himself to be muzzled, beaten, and killed by the hands of the witch. A Christian myself, I look forward to re-reading the tale to grasp upon Lewis's deeper yet simple stories of the life of children and beings if Narnia. That being said, if you are not Christian, the story does not really reference Christianity much at all, save calling the male children "Sons of Adam" and the female children "Daughters of Eve".
It is difficult not to rate the book anything other than 5 star.
⭐️ Character development: Freebie
⭐️⭐️ World building: Freebie, really I don't believe any explanation necessary for this one. Its Narnia!
⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ease of read: Since the book was written for someone who is young, you can assume the reading level is quite easy. It was also a page turner.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Plot twist: Difficult to gage, since I was reading it for the second time, I had already known what the book was about, not to mention all the movies that were filmed for this series of books. But if I try to imagine that I were reading it for the first time, it would not be difficult to see how I would be surprised.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lasting impression: When I last read this series I was 7, turning 8. My mother read it to me as a bedtime story, and as I did with most of the books I read with my parents when I was younger, I proceeded to read the rest of the books within the series because they were not reading them fast enough, and the only person that would be able to control the speed in which I read was me. I remember liking the books, and I have fond memories surrounding them. Now I am 27, re-reading the books after 20 years. Those feelings that I had when I was a child still exist, and the wonder I felt when I was first introduced to Narnia when I was a child still remains.
On the other hand, the aspect of this book that I didn't like was when the White Witch came upon two squirrels, their children, two satyrs, a dwarf, and an old fox. They were having a little party before the witch turned them to stone after the fox told her that Father Christmas had come. It was very depressing because the animals had not done anything wrong. They were telling the truth and the witch was mad because her powers were fading.
I believe that The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a great book for children and adults because it has many fairy tale aspects with a happy ending. The book has many parts that will make you cry and some parts that will make you laugh. I would recommend this book for someone who loves fantasy genre and fictional characters. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a book that teaches many lessons and promotes many different emotions.
This wouldn't have been such an issue if I hadn't decided awhile back to read the series. I'm not quite sure how many times this book has been read to me or how many books in the series I'm familiar with, but I've always been curious as to how it all ends. My childhood memory of it is somewhat dim to boot.
I have always loved these books, <b>BUT</b> (here's the big but everyone shall hate me for) I don't like Aslan. I never have. Not when I was a kid. Not now. Not ever.
All the same, I am excited to see what happens next. As an FYI, I'm going to be reading these by publication order, so Prince Caspian is up next.
