It has been forever since I wrote a review ! But here I am …the last review I wrote was on August 20th. But today I am wrting a review on one of my fav childhood series 🙂 Also I am redesigning myy blog so if you have any ideas do tell me in he comments below.
TODAY’S RIDDLE : Who is she ? ( hint below )
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Narnia…the land beyond the wardrobe door, a secret place frozen in eternal winter, a magical country waiting to be set free.
Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor’s mysterious old house. At first her brothers and sister don’t believe her when she tells of her visit to the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund, then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe themselves. In Narnia they find a country buried under the evil enchantment of the White Witch. When they meet the Lion Aslan, they realize they’ve been called to a great adventure and bravely join the battle to free Narnia from the Witch’s sinister spell.
Narnia is full of talking animals, magic, and the loathsome witch who turns animals into stone statues if they do not do as she pleases. With the help of a Beaver couple, they escape in time and get to meet Aslan, who teaches them true bravery, sacrifice and teamwork. I liked Lucy best because she is a curious, truthful and kindhearted girl whom I could relate to. This book taught me two important lessons; that looks can be deceiving and that two wrongs don’t make a right.The illustrations are precious and go perfectly with the story.reat messages, and unique style. Light but direct to the point, like all children stories should be. The lion, the witch and the wardrobe is a must for all the lovers of the genre.
NARNIA… the land between the lamp-post and the castle of Cair Paravel, where animals talk, where magical things happen… and where the adventure begins.
Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan’s own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia—the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.
The story has a slow start and isn’t as gripping as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, but I was just glad to read a new Pevensie siblings adventure.A number of new characters were introduced, each having incredibly peculiar names that I loved but find hard to recollect now. I loved this story because I love Lucy and Aslan and Caspian, but there were a lot of side characters who I didn’t care much about and the villain in this book wasn’t so interesting.Some plot points did annoy me a bit—one of them being that the boys were sent to make battle plans and do the important stuff while the girls pranced around with Aslan. Given how old this book is,I chose to not let this affect how I rated this book. Prince Caspian was well written and a fast paced read! I enjoyed the siblings’ relationship. It’s also clear there were different personalities in this story. I like the ending because there was mentioned of a portal. I love portals to a parallel universe! All in All this book was an excellent read! I just loved how the story pulled me in. It helped that the characters were well liked and their adventures were exciting. I like Prince Caspian and his curiosities. The stories about the animals were fantastic. It boggled my mind that the time difference between Narnia and real life was so vast! It’s also interesting that different people came and took over in the centuries that passed.
