I watched the film version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe about 6 or 7 years ago and remember liking it. I then read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and thought it was okay.

I have never read this series so I don't have the nostalgia of childhood memories of the book to help me. I did enjoy it, but as I'm no longer the target audience, I found it a little flat. I am glad that I'm now old enough to see the symbolism that I would have missed as a child. I will complete the series, I just wish I had read this when I was younger.

A read-aloud for the kids. They really enjoyed it. They found the White Witch a lot scarier than I remember her! I edited out the parts where Aslan says women aren't made for war, and changed up a bit of the original ending (Peter and Edmund being wise kings, while Susan and Lucy get lots of marriage offers). Our treehouse is now Cair Paravel.
