Clive Staples Lewis was born on 29 November 1898 and he died on 22 November 1963. He is commonly known as C.S. Lewis and he was one of THE best authors that ever lived. He is known for his series of books called The Chronicles of Narnia. I recently read the entire set and it is one of the best set of books I have ever had the privilege of reading. The characters are well described, the attention to detail amazing and the way C.S. Lewis put small biblical truths in the books is so sneaky that if you did not know what they are, you would not notice them.
I personally think that the movies made based on the books do not do them justice because they leave out a lot of key detail.
The books are about four children who get into Narnia and the adventures that they have while they are in Narnia. I would highly recommend the books to anyone who loves to read. Especially those of you who love a good fantasy / adventure read.
I have to agree with Sarah, Narnia was definitely one of my favorite reads and the little life lessons in the books are priceless!
