I think I was about ten when I first heard of the lion the witch and the wardrobe. I had to read it for a class assignment. It was such a magical book filled to the brim with excitement. I fell into the story, and felt the emotions of the characters so deeply, just like when I read Harry Potter.
A couple years ago, I was sent to a behavior modification center, and you have so much time on your hands there, that I found all the time in the world to read. I fell into the chronicles of Narnia, instead of just that book, and somehow lost my troubles in a world full of magical creatures and mystical adventures.
I love the chronicals of narnia!
