What, if any, impression did you get after reading the Narnia books for the first time?

There was a sense of something special and magical about them.

The first time I read LWW I was so captivated by how magical Narnia was and how interesting the story was. I love reading in general but I knew at that moment I have found something very special.

I read the LWW first andi knew I would have to read the others, it took me several months to find them looking through the book sections of thrift stores since I had very little spending money at the time. I found them in the order LWW, PC, HHB, MN, SC, VDT and LB.

I knew the books where special and magical from the moment we first started reading them. My brother read them to us before bed and I would dream about Narnia in the night. My brother would only read a certain amount of chapters at a time and we would beg him to read more

When I read LWW, I knew it would be one of my most favorite books. :)

The problem is I never read the books first.

I saw the animated LWW when I was 4. Though it would probably not be good for me today, I loved it when I was that age. I found the story facinating and I loved the characters and the whole world of Narnia. At the time I thought it was the only Narnia related story. Around the age of 6, my dad read to me and my little brother "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." At age 7 I saw the BBC Silver Chair and thats when I realised that Narnia was a series. About a year later I saw the BBC LWW and PC/VDT. At the age of 8 I also listened to the Focus on the Family Radio drama of the Magician's Nephew. I found that Radio drama facinating and started to listen to each of the dramas until they had made all 7.

Then after hearing the dramas in chronological order, I read the books in random order.

THEN when I was 12, I was blown away when I first saw the trailer for the movie (cause until then I had only seen a akward cartoon and cheap BBC adaptation). And then I did a project on the LWW book for school and finished it the day before the movie came out. When I saw the movie I was blown away.

I joined Narniaweb 2 years later just about a month before the trailer for PC was released in the December of 2007.
