Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.

It's been several years since I've reread this one (maybe seven?). It seems more polished and put together than most of the other Narnia books. This one was the last Narnia book Lewis finished writing (according to wikipedia) and I wonder if that made a difference. This has been one of my favorite...

I would have given the book 4.5 stars if Lewis hadn't kept mentioning that you shouldn't shut yourself in a wardrobe ever. I think I'm always surprised by how short this book is. I think it might be the shortest in the series, but the story always feels so big to me. It's a fast-paced story that's...

This is definitely one of the best Narnia books, probably my third favorite. I love all the different places the characters sail to and the adventures they have. Eustace's main storyline stands out the most in my memory, but it's all so good. You don't need the backstory of The Lion, the Witch an...
