    Very good guide to Narnia series helping to understand some of the situations, motivations or author's intentions. The companion explains facts connected with characters of the series. This should be standing next to the series as a help. The build of this book is similiar to encyclopedia or dictionary - all items are in alphabetic order what makes using easier.

    The subtitle to this book says it all: A Complete Guide to the Magical World of C.S. Lewis's 'The Chronicles of Narnia'. Over 500 pages, Paul Ford provides an in-depth look at characters, themes, philosophies literary patterns and structures, and nearly anything else relevant to Lewis' classic series. Most anything that can be known about the series is present here. For those who want to study or appreciate or understand The Chronicles in depth, this is a must-own.If you take nothing else away f [...]

    This book is not about C.S. Lewis. It's like a dictionary of every word, person, place or thing associated with the Chronicles of Narnia.Mr. Ford has meticulously cross referenced a word as it shows up in each book. This is a worthwhile companion for understanding any given subject within the series. Say you look up the words 'burnt island' Used in VDT page 114-115. This is where Reepicheep gets his coracle (wicker, skin-clad fishing boat) and it's a destroyed island. The footnotes will at times [...]

    I tend to avoid "companion" books, since they are often just rehashed information that can be found elsewhere (like, say, the source material), but Companion to Narnia was a pleasant surprise. I've read a decent amount on C.S. Lewis and there was plenty of commentary in here revealing information and connections that I was unaware of. It's not merely a Narnian encyclopedia, but has entries that explores running themes, cross-referenced in a way that makes it a pleasure to thumb through.

    This Narnian encyclopedia is a must-read for Narnia fans. I wish I had this book each time I read The Chronicles. As the back cover says, this has "hundreds of alphabetically arranged and indexed entries covering the characters, places, and themes" of The Chronicles. It's extremely thorough. The descriptions fit the stories internally, and also draw on externals such as Lewis's other writings, influences on his life. It also covers allusions to the Bible and to other literature and legends.I rea [...]

    I have no companion but Love, no beginning, no end, no dawn. The Soul calls from within me: 'You, ignorant of the way of Love, set Me free.'

    This was one of the only books in my college's library that wasn't non-fiction! I loved it! It's so long, I had to check it out a bunch of times, but it was worth it. There's just a wealth of information here, and it's so interesting; it's like a guide to the history and mythos of Narnia. It's an absolutely brilliant book, tons of fun to page through; I wish I owned a copy! Definitely one of my all-time favorite companion books to any series.If you're as much of a fan of Narnia as I am, I'd defi [...]

    This is not a book you sit down and read from cover to cover; it is a reference book. The blurb on the back cover says it covers subjects from "Aslan, the Great Lion, to Zardeenah, the mysterious lady of the night", but it does cover a few subjects, alphabetically, before it gets to Aslan. Organized in an A to Z format, it is easy to look up any subject found in the Chronicles of Narnia and get a third party perspective on the matter.

    I think I was about 27 or 28 when I read these books and I enjoyed them just as much as a child would. Its categorized as a children's book but,it is not immature and an adult can enjoy it just as much as their children. It has plenty of characters,adventure,and excitement. I loved the lessons woven within the books to be learned. I would recommend that every child read these books, and maybe even adults as well.

    If you're a fan of Narnia, this is great to have around, especially if you forget names and such. I've read this off and on since the beginning of the year, learning more about C. S. Lewis and the series he created, though I didn't technically read all of this; the last few appendixes didn't seem interesting, so I just skimmed through them, but I read the entire beginning and the encyclopedia.

    Terrific resource. Essentially a Narnian encyclopaedia. It has atrocities, especially the jaw on sexism, but I do recommend it to anyone who can't tell Trufflehunter from Trumpkin. It could use some updating though, especially in the realm of literary connections.

    Superbly referenced and well-organized companion to the "Chronicles of Narnia" for teenagers and adults. Written by respected scholar Paul Ford, this provides "everything" you would ever need to know while reading the "Chronicles" It is like taking a college course.

    Excellent reference for anyone exploring Narnia who wants to do any factchecking. It's written dictionary style, but I read the whole thing when I was on my Narnia kick a decade or so ago. (Man, I'm old.)

    It's well-arranged, and covers all the characters and places, but there's not much in there that a true Narnian wouldn't know already

    Good book to get more detailed insight into the world and stories told in the Chronicals. Makes me want to reread some, especially the Last Battle.

    Haha okay, yes I'm a dork, but I LOVE all this stuff about the background of Narnia and the encyclopedia is quite helpful!

    A really in depth and comprehensive guide to Narnia, with analysis, themes, motifs, symbols, and allowing you to cross-examine these throughout the 7 books. A must for any big Narnia fan!
