The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, Reviewed by Bart Breen
Classic Read, New Order, Great Binding!
Chronological Order Works!
Regarding quality of the stories, there are few collections of Children’s literature that can compare with “The Chronicles of Narnia.” C.S. Lewis created a masterpiece that has been and continues to be enjoyed throughout the world by Children and Adults alike.
This particular rendering places “The Magician’s Nephew” first which is the proper position for the chronology of Narnia itself. At first I was concerned that there might be some confusion but as I read through the book aloud to my 10 year old daughter, my concerns were allayed and set aside. Lewis indeed, wrote this to stand alone well enough that there are not any Inklings (inside joke and pun intended) beyond those intended by the author of what is yet to come.
