Someone recently asked me what order she should read The Chronicles of Narnia in. C.S. Lewis didn’t originally plan for Narnia to be a series, and the order in which the books were written differs from the order in which they were published, and both of them differ from the chronological order of the story of Narnia. So, which order is correct?
I argue for an entirely different order than any of the three. As someone who reads a little Narnia almost every single day, I feel qualified to make a recommendation (ha!). For maximum enjoyment of the series, here is my suggested sequence.
