One of the best books ever made. Dead Serious.
This book is simply amazing. I have read all of The Chronicles of Narnia, and this one is the best by far. C.S. Lewis is one of the best writers in all of history. This book is great fantasy and if you don't like fantasy at all, then you won't like this. It is pure fantasy and is a great storie for children. When I first heard the storie as a little kid, I was just stunned. Highly recommended.

transparent, but lovable
yeah, it's totally obvious that aslan is jesus. not subtle and all. but despite that (and i'm not even christian!) i still loved this book. my whole family got really into it one summer, so warning: get into it as much as you like, but no matter how good the author makes turkish delight sound, do yourself a favor and don't go out and try it. it is so, so gross.
Try this BOOK!
It is about four children (otherwise known as the children of eve and adam) falling into a wardrobe and coming out into a beautiful snowy forest.
Help Peter, Lucy, Susan and Edward face dwarfs, centaurs, lions, witches, beavers, and much more exciting adventured filled things!

I feel so bad about saying it.....but I didn't like it.....
I feel bad about saying it, because C.S. Lewis seems to have so many fans, but I didn't really like the book. I read it when I was 9 for a class project and was not very impressed. I understood it perfectly and thought the language was excellent, but I guess it was just too imaginative for me. It lacked, in my opinion, a way to make it entirely believable. Sorry all you C.S. Lewis fans! Unfortunately, I just didn't fall under the spell.
C.S. Lewis is the best auther there is. he is dead ( i wish he wasnt ) but i think he would proud of this comment. he made all those books for a reason im sure. by what the books are about, i think he is one of the strongest cristian ( besides jesus ) that ever lived!
These books are practically classics and some that you DONT want to miss. I should say that children should be allowed to read them at 8 and up because then they can reread them till they are much older. There is absolutly nothing wrong or truly violent about these books.
The thing i most liked was the part when peter really becomes a king and battles the witch. They did a great job filming it and it was a beautiful book only a little violent. not at all awful or bad. IT WAS TOTALLY WICKEDLY AWESOME. I wish i could watch it again and i'm doing it for my book report
It is HORRIBLE to say that this book has no action, and to say "If you're going to write it again" and "don't use such old fashioned language" is ignorant. C.S. Lewis is one of the most amazing writers that has ever been, and he wrote the book in the early 1900's. This book is a complete masterpeice, and any kid should be encouraged to read it all the way.
