Work Information

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

  1. 150
    The Earthsea Quartet by Ursula K. Le Guin (ed.pendragon)
    ed.pendragon: There is magic and there are journeys, mythical beasts and young protagonists, moral judgements to be made and courage to be demonstrated; while the language is more adult, Earthsea is as vivid a world as Narnia and a place you will want to re-visit.
  2. 81
    The Abhorsen Trilogy Box Set by Garth Nix (ed.pendragon)
    ed.pendragon: This is a rather darker version on the same door-between-the-worlds theme, where the magic resides in the north of a thinly-disguised United Kingdom reached by way of a Wall.
  3. 40
    The Book of the Dun Cow by Walter Jr. Wangerin (jpers36)
  4. 40
    Redwall by Brian Jacques (MarcusBrutus)
    MarcusBrutus: fantasy/talking animals
  5. 1613
    His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (guurtjesboekenkast, BrileyOC)
    BrileyOC: Both series provide excellent fantastical escapism as well as profound (though different) religious viewpoints.
  6. 74
    The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame (atimco)
    atimco: Both Narnia and Willows feature anthropomorphized animal heroes who nevertheless retain the quirks of their species. The narrative voice is humorous and quintessentially British. Both stories also include spiritual/religious undertones. Willows predates Narnia by over forty years and was a big influence on Lewis (he even wrote a poem with some of Grahame's characters in it).… (more)
  7. 20
    The Tower of Geburah by John White (lavonnas)
  8. 42
    The Magicians by Lev Grossman (Jannes)
    Jannes: The Magicians would not exist if it wasn't for the Narnia books, and is the kind of loving deconstruction of Lewis' work and the importance us readers places in it that you will either love or hate. Give it a try.
  9. 20
    The Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper (amanda4242)
  10. 21
    Wildwood by Colin Meloy (cdcottam1)
    cdcottam1: Both works are beautifully mystical and fantastical! Wildwood has many of the fantastical themes of Narnia without the blatantly religious undertones while still containing good moral lessons.
  11. 10
    The Archives of Anthropos (Set of 4) by John White (palaephata)
    palaephata: This series (there are really six) is another portal fiction that displays subtle Christian allegory. There's more fighting and less exploration of the world in White, and the reading level and content are just a little higher than that in Lewis. I'd read them about a year later.… (more)
  12. 10
    Morning Child by Harold Myra (juniperSun)
    juniperSun: both have young people involved in the choice of good and evil, touched by meeting a loving guide/spirit.
  13. 11
    Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (whitewavedarling)
    whitewavedarling: Santa Olivia is admittedly for a more adult-based audience, but themes, situations, and character types carry over between the works enough (plus a light integration of religion) that I think the readers of one work set would be well suited for the other.… (more)
  14. 11
    The Chronicles of Sapta Sindhu by Kala Aporva (akheel)
    akheel: both the books chronicles the fate of their respective kingdoms and tell us a tale of valor to rise against evil.
  15. 11
    Watership Down by Richard Adams (MarcusBrutus)
    MarcusBrutus: fantasy/talking animals

These stories are intriguing and fantastical to say the least. Many will be familiar with the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, but stories which lead up to it are just as good and tie everything together. ( )
  JHemlock | May 15, 2024 |
When Digory and Polly are tricked by Digory's peculiar Uncle Andrew into becoming part of an experiment, they set off on the adventure of a lifetime. What happens to the children when they touch Uncle Andrew's magic rings is far beyond anything even the old magician could have imagined.

Hurtled into the Wood between the Worlds, the children soon find that they can enter many worlds through the mysterious pools there. In one world they encounter the evil Queen Jadis, who wreaks havoc in the streets of London when she is accidentally brought back with them. When they finally manage to pull her out of London, unintentionally taking along Uncle Andrew and a coachman with his horse, they find themselves in what will come to be known as the land of Narnia.

Overall, this is a good children’s series. I only ever had The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe growing up so I didn’t know the rest of it. The religious undertones are much more prevalent in the other books. And I’m glad I read these on audio because I think the narrators made each one better.

Kenneth Branagh read The Magician’s Nephew (4 stars for the story, 5 stars for Branagh)
Michael York read The Lion/Witch/Wardrobe (4 stars for the story, 4 stars for York)
Alex Jennings read The Horse & His Boy (1 star for the story, 3 stars for Jennings)
Lynn Redgrave read Prince Caspian (3 stars for the story, 3 stars for Redgrave)
Derek Jacobi read Voyage of the Dawn Treader (4 stars for the story, 5 stars for Jacobi)
Jeremy Northam read The Silver Chair (2 stars for the story, 3 stars for Northam)
Sir Patrick Stewart read The Last Battle (2 stars for the story, 5 stars for Stewart) ( )

This was my childhood - and I have my sister to thank for that. She read them in school, and I followed suit. Saw the first Narnia film before I started to read these. And I am glad I did, I love these stories! My favourite is "Prince Caspian".

It was a great way to be introduced to the fantasy world (and to mythology with Greek Fauns and Dryads, and Northern European giants and dwarves) at a young age as these stories were full of all kinds of creatures and adventures. You can tell Lewis and Tolkien were friends as they have similar themes and vibes (and of course draw from Christianity to tell their stories), though possess very different writing styles altogether.

I rate it 4 stars only because some of the books I remember did not grip my attention the same way others did ("The Horse and His Boy" & "The Silver Chair") and not as descriptive as I'd like now. Forever grateful for these chronicles though. ( )

This story follows four kids who discover the magical world of Narnia where they discover that they are a part of an amazing prophecy.
Amazing read that is not only fun but also follows the story of Christ through the Lion Aslan who personifies Christ in this story!

Book description
This box set includes all seven titles in The Chronicles of Narnia; The Magician's Nephew; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; The Horse and His Boy; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; and The Last Battle.
The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of seven fantasy novels for children written by C. S. Lewis. It is considered a classic of children's literature and is the author's best-known work, having sold over 120 million copies in 41 languages. Written by Lewis between 1949 and 1954, The Chronicles of Narnia have been adapted several times, complete or in part, for radio, television, stage, and cinema. In addition to numerous traditional Christian themes, the series borrows characters and ideas from Greek and Roman mythology, as well as from traditional British and Irish fairy tales.

The Chronicles of Narnia present the adventures of children who play central roles in the unfolding history of the fictional realm of Narnia, a place where animals talk, magic is common, and good battles evil. Each of the books (with the exception of The Horse and His Boy) features as its protagonists children from our world who are magically transported to Narnia, where they are called upon to help the Lion Aslan handle a crisis in the world of Narnia.
