When I started re-reading The Chronicles of Narnia, I wasn't prepared to like them. A little bit into the seven-book series, and I didn't want to do anything but read.
The title describes the series relatively well: it's a set of books that follows (chronicles) choice moments in the history of an exotic and imaginary land (Narnia). There are tons of fun, mythical characters, rich descriptions of luscious food and landscapes (that earns some bonus points, in my book), and tearjerking tales of redemption. There is also a beautiful witch (the book does contain mentions of magic, but I found it to be less extreme than in other books), a majestic lion, and an endearing young girl named Lucy who you may want to be friends with. All in all, it's a captivating, spellbinding tale in a genre all of its own. Fans of fantasy, historical fiction, multicultural stories, or classics will most likely enjoy The Chronicles of Narnia. :)
Are you going to start reading this delightful series? If you've read it already, which book is your favorite?
