Have you ever read The Chronicles Of Narnia? If you have not, I suggest you should read it. It is a series consisting of seven books and the very first book is The Magician’s Nephew. All seven books are written by C.S. Lewis and illustrated by Pauline Baynes. Now you might wonder, “what is The Chronicles of Narnia about”?

The Chronicles Of Narnia is about another world that was created by the powerful lion named Aslan. This other world is called Narnia. Thing is, Narnia is not just a ‘regular’ world. Narnia is magical. In Narnia animals can talk and unicorns roam. Although the series starts with the Magician’s Nephew, the adventure really starts with The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. The adventure begins when four children, the Pevensies, are sent to a professor’s house away from the war in England. One day while they’re playing a game of hide-and-seek, the youngest girl, Lucy, discovers a magical wardrobe in the house. She hid in the wardrobe and found that it led straight into another world! Now you can probably guess, that the other world she discovered was, in fact, Narnia.

The Chronicles of Narnia is easy to picture because the author, C.S. Lewis, uses such descriptive writing that it is easy to picture the scenes. For example, “This must be a simply enormous wardrobe!” thought Lucy, going still further in and pushing the soft folds of the coats aside to make room for her. Then she noticed that there was something crunching under her feet. “I wonder is that more mothballs” (The Chronicles Of Narnia, The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe, chapter 1, page 23). This quote from The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe proves how descriptive the writings of C.S. Lewis are. Of course the “crunch” wasn’t really mothballs. It was the snow in Narnia. Now at that point in Narnia, the world was under an eternal winter.

I recommend that everyone who enjoys fictional or adventurous books should read The Chronicles Of Narnia. If you are in search of a magical or epic book you should definitely consider The Chronicles Of Narnia. There is danger lurking everywhere for the Pevensies and the whole world of Narnia is relying on them to save Narnia from the endless Winter. On top of that, there is a battle in almost all of the books. Have you ever read Harry Potter? If you have, I am one hundred percent certain that you would enjoy the Chronicles Of Narnia just as much as you like Harry Potter. The Chronicles Of Narnia is an epic adventure full of magic, danger and risk for the Pevensies have no idea what they are in for when they enter Narnia.

In conclusion, I feel that The Chronicles Of Narnia is one of the best books I have ever read and I certainly recommend it to everybody who is looking for a book full of epic adventure and magic.
