This morning I posted my review of Charlotte’s Web as part of the Children’s Books Readathon that Jay from This Is My Truth Now. The other book that we could read was The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. While I wasn’t able to fit it in to read this week I have read it before so I thought I was share my original review with y’all.
Title: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Author: C.S. Lewis
My Rating: 4 stars
They open a door and enter a world
NARNIA…the land beyond the wardrobe, the secret country known only to Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy…the place where the adventure begins. Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor’s mysterious old house. At first, no one believes her when she tells of her adventures in the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund and then Peter and Susan discover the Magic and meet Aslan, the Great Lion, for themselves. In the blink of an eye, their lives are changed forever.
It had kind of a slow start to me but it picked up pretty quickly and then it was fast paced from there. Some parts of the story just seemed a little unnecessary to me and during those parts of the story I just found myself trying to get through them as fast a I could. That being said I was really drawn in to this book and found myself feeling sad at certain parts. I really enjoyed reading this even though it is geared toward children and I am looking forward to continuing on in the series.
