    My greatest disappointment in 'The Screwtape Letters' was that Lewis was not able to demonstrate what made his good people good or his bad people bad. The closest he got to defining goodness was that you could tell the good people from the vague aura of light that surrounded them--and ...

    I just re-read this book and got so much more out of it than the first time. The symbolism & parallels to basic Christianity stuck out. *turkish delight is our human nature, prone to addiction, selfishness and wrongdoing *Peter said about Edmund, "We should go after him. After a...

    I am tempted to give this book a zero but the idea of going through the wardrobe to another land is fantastic. Everything else, however, is not fantastic, including: The over-the-top Christian allegory. The complete absence of dramatic tension - the characters are static and the co...

    This is the first book where I chronicled my thoughts as I read through it with my son. I don't know how easy it is for y'all to access the record of those here on Goodreads, but if you're looking for a detailed account of my thoughts on the book, you can look there. I'll say this. ...

    I loved this book. It was first read to me in 4th grade. We would all come in from lunch and our teacher would read to us for about 30 minutes before we would start class. I remember this book because it wasnt read to us by Mrs Graham, but instead it would be read by Mr Goodwin, her...

    It dawned on me the other day that I'd never read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. What an oversight! I had to fix this. I knew the story. When we were kids, one of my cousins was all about this book and liked to tell me about it. I remember absolutely bawling my eyes out when...

    What a great family read aloud. My eight, six and four year old (and husband) enjoyed hearing this. The four year old flagged a bit but the eight year old got the allegory. A fantastic story, so well told. ...

    What are you doing on that wardrobe? Narnia Business!! I read this book as a book challenge and adored it. I had not read this book before and did not know of its existence as a child. I would have loved it even more then, I imagine. Four English children, removed from London fo...

    What an amazingly delightful book! I regret not reading it earlier ** Before I begin, let me clarify that as I am not a Christian, I had no idea that this book was written by keeping the image of Jesus (as Aslan) in mind. I just came across this revelation on Goodreads, and it just...

    A Defence of C.S. Lewis...or a brief attempt at such Some thoughts recently crossed my mind in regards to arguments one could offer as a defence of the Christian side of this novel. The main arguments against this novel as a 'Christian allegory' that I have heard are: 1)Aslan is not...

    What's it with British literature? How from a relatively small pool of population can such creative writers emerge? I don't like C.S Lewis's non fiction books, but here he knocked the ball out of the park. Aslan, whose antics and decision making and beliefs are difficult to map, is ...

    This is the story of four siblings who stumble through a wardrobe into a different world. They discover magic, monsters and their destiny. One Christmas, when I was 11 or 12, my mother gave me The Chronicles of Narnia. It ignited a lifelong love of fantasy fiction and reading. "P...

    Well, can you blame me for loving this? I certainly hope not. It's Christmas and I feel like a little kid and I was craving something to make me feel like I am one, indeed, and this book travelled me to a wondrous world full of heroes and of course a villain. The ride was awesome and I...

    ?If ever they remembered their life in this world it was as one remembers a dream.? The real world is boring; it?s mundane, unimaginative and dry. So humans create fantasy as a means of escape. We watch movies or go to the theatre to see something more interesting than the ...

    Every time I read this story, I feel happy. I love fairytales and mythology and I believe this books is the perfect example of how fantasy, mythology and fairytales can be combined and create a strong result. 1. First of all there is obviously the ?The Snow Queen? fairytale by ...

    I hadn't read this in forever, so it was fun to come back to. I definitely remembered it being much more detailed, though. It's a pretty fast read... so that's funny how much my mind added to the story as a kid. But I still adore these books so much!! And I still think this movie wa...

    After I first read this book as a young boy I remember distracting my father one day whilst he was working in his shed at the bottom of our garden. I was about 11 at the time and my father was filing away at something in the vice attached to the work bench. I spotted the pincers/pliers...

    One day, you will be old enough to start reading fairytales again. It's like C.S. Lewis was speaking to me. I never read these as a child but now that I'm in my mid-twenties, I'm feeling the urge to visit all those childhood classics I never read. And I'm so glad I did. Peter did not...
