The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe


By: C.S. Lewis

The main characters in this story are Peter, Susan,
Edmund, and Lucy. During a war in London they were sent to a
professor\'s house outside London. Lucy, while exploring with her
brothers and sister, found a secret passage through the wardrobe to
Naria,a secret world. In Naria there are other characters. One of
them is the White Witch,also known as the Queen of Naria, who was
like a tyrant. If anyone disobeyed her she turned them to stone.
Another character Aslan, a lion, saved Naria from the rule of the
White Witch. Most of this story takes place in Naria.

The main conflict is how Naria can live under the rule
of the White Witch. The Beavers set out to take Peter, Susan, and
Lucy (not Edmund because he went to the witch ) to the four thrones
so they ( four children united ) can rule over Naria and destroy
the witch. The Beavers and the three children were walking in the
snow because there it was always winter. Although it was always
winter Christmas never arrived. After they awoke the next day they
saw Father Christmas who gave them gifts.Mrs. Beaver received a new
sewing machine. Mr. Beaver\'s dam was fixed and finished. Peter was
given a shield and sword. Susan received a bow, arrows, and a horn.
Lucy\'s gift was a bottle of healing juice and a dagger. that was
the climax of the book because the spell of the White Witch was
fading. Then they met up with Aslan and he freed all the stone
figures and made them his army. The resolution of the book is when
Aslan\'s army and the witches army confront and Aslan\'s army wins.
Peter kills the witch at the end of the battle.

The impression I got from this book is that Naria is a
land of surprises and I\'m excited that this years assignment will
allow me to read more of " The Chronicles of Naria " . I liked this
book because of the surprising events like when Aslan died then
came back to life. I would recommend this book to someone more or
less at my reading level because I found this book neither
difficult nor easy and simple.
