Stories from Days Gone By – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

And now… another in my occasional series revisiting books from childhood.

Lion, the Witch and the WardrobeThe Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

Review: I’d forgotten how short this book is. The version I read is only 189 pages with a fairly good size font and pictures. My memories of the story seemed far more epic than 189 pages. Nonetheless, the story holds up remarkably well for having been published in 1950. The world of Narnia feels just a vast and fantastical as I remember. My one complaint is that reading it as an adult, I want an even more in-depth story whereas as a child I was simply awed by the story on the page. But, all in all, still a classic.
