C.S. Lewis is simply one of the greatest writers who ever lived. This series is deep enough for adults and fascinating for children.

I Love This Series
It's the best series C. S. Lewis has authored. Each book stands on its own in the series and has never failed to give me new insights into Biblical Truth through fantasy.

C.S. Lewis is a genius. Wonderfully written stories, each book is a tale all its own and yet wonderfully intertwines with the rest of the series. Definitely a must read for all ages.

While the stories are interesting, the writing style of the author kills the excitement. Stick with Lord of the Rings.
