The Chronicles of Narnia have been some of my favorite books since I was eight years old. 5 stars is not enough.
The reason for the 1-star rating is in reaction to the sudden "re-ordering" of the series in an order not written, published, or presented by C.S. Lewis. The Magician's Nephew was never the intended entry into this fantastic world. The publishers (or whoever made this decision to change the order) have done readers a great disservice.
The correct order is: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew, The Last Battle.
