  • Description
    The Chronicles Of Narnia by C. S. Lewis is a series of seven high-fantasy novels.
     
    Summary Of The Book
     
    This series is set in the fictional world of Narnia. It is a fantasy world of magic, talking animals, and mythical beasts. The books describe the adventure of several children who play main roles in the history of that world.
     
    The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is about the story of four ordinary Pevensie children, Peter, Edmund, Susan, and Lucy. In Professor Digory Kirke's house, they find a wardrobe that leads them to the magical land of Narnia. In Narnia, they help Aslan, a talking lion and save Narnia from the evil white witch.
     
    Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia is the story about the Pevensie children's return to Narnia in response to the call of the prince Caspian, who has been displaced from his throne by his uncle, for help.
     
    In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with their cousin Eustace Scrubb, come to Narnia. They join Caspian on the voyage on the ship Dawn Treader for finding the seven lords who were expelled when Miraz took over the throne.
     
    The Silver Chair is the first Narnia book where the Pevensie children are not featured. Eustace is accompanied by his classmate Jill Pole to Narnia on Aslan's call to help in saving Prince Rilian, son of Caspian.
     
    The Horse and His Boy is the story of a talking horse called Bree and young boy named Shasta who are returning to Narnia for freedom.
     
    The Magician's Nephew is about the origins of Narnia. The book explains how Aslan created the world and about the first entry of evil into it. Digory Kirke and his friend Polly Plummer experiment with magic rings made by Digory's uncle and stumble into different worlds.
     
    The Last Battle is about the end of the world of Narnia.
     
    The Chronicles Of Narnia is considered a classic of children's literature. Over 100 million copies of the book have been sold in 47 languages.

    • Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Magdalen College, Oxford, and later was Professor of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, where he remained until his death in 1963. He wrote numerous books of literary criticism and on Chistianity, the best-known being 'The Screwtape Letters', as well as four novels for adults.Lewis (known as Jack to his friends) and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of the Inklings, an informal writers' club that met at a local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairy tales, myths and ancient legends, coupled with inspiration from his childhood, led him to write the seven Chronicles of Narnia. These were his only works for children, and they have become acknowledged classics of children's literature. The best-known of these, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, began with a picture in Lewis's head, at the age of 16, of a faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. It is now being made into a film by Walden Media, due for release in the latter part of 2005.

    Excellent!

    Every child must grow up with the works of C.S.Lewis. One of the only two original fantasy tales of all time (the other by J.R.R. Tolkien), this set of seven books, conjures up a world so fascinating, filled with such interesting and exhilarating tales, that you simply cannot wait to turn the page. The writing is effortless, and simple, making it an ideal read for all ages. A word of advice, do not dwell on the movies, this written word has a lot, LOT more to offer than computer graphics ever...

    Disappointing

    Never before have I been this disappointed with flipkart. The product is nothing like the one shown in the picture. In reality, the book is like a children's version.

    If you are a book collector, this is NOT for you. In the illustration it looks gorgeous and all, but on the actual product, the outside is just a picture of the dawn-treader and the volumes have cartoon-like illustrations.

    For collectors: Go for a higher priced version, get better value for your bucks.

    Good price and Box Set

    Pros :
    a) Good price.
    b) Beautiful Box set.
    c) The books are famous world-over so a no-brainer in buying it as a gift.

    Cons :
    Got Box Set with a beautiful but torn Cardboard-box.
    I'm sure this is a one-off thing since I've never received damaged goods till now.

    Flipkart should ensure these type of damages don't occur as it was a birthday gift for my niece. Esp. as I'd even paid extra amount for immediate delivery and gift wrapping.

    Does the job

    The books are of good quality but covers are not at all pretty if you like having a pretty collection on your book shelves. I would recommend you to order all seven books separately instead of this pack.

    In the name of Aslan (Mind blowing piece of Literature )

    In the name of Aslan and Narnia all books are awesome , though they are not according to there chronological order of publication . After reading the books you will understand everything from the genesis of Narnia to the Last battle . Flipkart service is good as always . I always get the best online shopping experience from Flipkart. These books are definitely a masterpiece and a collector's item for book lovers .

    Excelent for children age 8 to 15

    C S Lewis is one of world's renowned author's who is a scholar. The way he has written these book itself is wonderful. It captivates the child mind. Well I really brought out the child in me. It has adventure, suspense, magic , and many wonderful things that make one imagine and takes one into a different world. Not to forget a lot of lessons for us too learn too.
