Okay I must say right away that I am a huge CS Lewis fan but its of his Christian faith & spirituality writings not the Narnia books. But I swear I keep seeing these ads for the Chronicles of Narnia movie, and I'm remembering what I did like about 'The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe' and doggone but I think I'm going to read the whole series this time and see what the hubbub is about.

Man, it's been ages since I read any of those books. I'm excited to see the movie because I do remember enjoying the story...and I'm lazy and have other books I want to read.

I saw an animated version of the TLTWATW when I was a kid, and read the book, but never read any of the others. I loved it and I hope the new movie is as good as the cartoon was!

I remember reading The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe when I was little...actually bought it and The Magician's Nephew (which is actually the first book of the series) and haven't gotten too far because like CelticCoalition I've been distracted by reading other things.

Namely, the new Harry Potter book!

It has been a few years at least since I picked up "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", yet it conjures fond memories of far away lands full of adventure and mystery. A balance between Harry Potter and LOTR. I am anxious to see the movie, they had better do it justice!

Oh I love all of the chronicles of narnia books. I actually just bought a new set. I saw the cartoon and thought it was funny. I saw the PBS versions of the books and thought it was funny. i am excited about the movies that are coming out. A little worried of course cause we don't know how they're going to interpret them...ya same feelings as when we heard the LOTR was being turned into a movie. Anyway does anyone know who the director of these movies is?

Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

I always forget too that TLTW&TW isn't the first... that is odd, I wonder why its the most well-known one. Come to think of it, I do believe I read the Magician's Nephew awhile back. Has anyone read the whole series, and what do you think of them as a series - do we need to read the whole set to enjoy the experience fully, or are particular books within the series better than others?

Well -- looks like I'm in good company here. rolleyes.gif Children's literature is really one of my big things, but for some reason I never read this series, even though Lewis and Tolkien were close friends and colleagues, and I am the consummate Tolkien devotee. I think I heard once it was a little pedantic in the way it puts out the theological themes. (Shame on me for not finding out for myself, of course.)

Of course The Chronicles of Narnia is now on my short list. . . what with the film coming out. I actually located an edition with all of it in one big volume (nice for dragging around and getting it really doggy reading under trees smile.gif ). I have read that they are taking the film extremely seriously for theme, and the trailers I have seen show that they are using the same highly skilled, devoted and slightly mad production and CG animation crew Peter Jackson used for the LotR films, as well as the incomparable New Zealand landscape, so it will probably be outstanding.

I really hope some discussion of the books gets going here. I think I will pick up my big fat seven-in-one volume this week and jump in.

I was working in my church library last evening, and as it was quiet I began re-reading 'The Magicians Nephew' and realized that I have read it before. Must have been a very long time ago! I wanted to see the connection between it and TLTW&TW and still will read it over again just out of curiosity.

Thanks for that link, by the way!

I just read 'The Magicians Nephew' this week and enjoyed it so much - it has a fair bit of humor that adults will enjoy, or I did anyway. And I had never read the whole book before, but see now that it's a good idea to read it before the 'Wardrobe' one. And with the film coming out soon, I'm glad I read the 'Nephew' book because it explains some things and sets the story in motion.

I will definately be there!

My favorite book in the series is the Horse and His Boy. If TLTWATW movie is good I hope they will make this book into a movie.
