Must third the recommendation myself. I reread it for the first time in years less than a month ago (meaning the first time since I was probably old enough to appreciate it), and I'm inclined to think it Lewis's best fiction. His storytelling is deeper than the Narnia series, and less brow-beating with its moral points. The imaginary world, I thought, was very well-executed. It has the plausible feeling of having been really connected to Ancient Greece, while having no real historical basis. This book comes a lot closer to the Lord of the Rings, I felt, than Narnia did. (Mind you, I loved Narnia, but it is in way a Middle-Earth.)
