  1. Simply gorgeous C S Lewis once said that Lord of the Rings burned like cold iron, but, you know, in a good way Wilson s Chestnut King sears like ice fire, a glorious euchatastrophe, a beautiful and at times terrifying story that caps off the trilogy very well In fact, in reading the book I found myself doing something I have t done since I was young I stayed up late reading, desperately devouring every page The metaphors are well done, the allusions to classical literature all in place, and the [...]


  2. Being a new series is hard work Readers finish the first installment, eager to jump into the next, but it doesn t release for another twelve months and memory dims Interest fades When book two is finally delivered, the process begins all over again.Well, N.D Wilson s 100 Cupboards trilogy is officially sealed and seasoned you no longer have any excuse.Once I find myself protesting in a review complex worlds with mazy customs and tongue twisting names are not my cup of tea But Wilson writes tha [...]



  3. I loved this book It was my favorite out of the whole trilogy I laughed out loud I cried like a small child I smiled like a loon At times I was reminded of Tolkien and C S Lewis in the writing and story plot Not in a bad way In a nostalgic way The symbolism is what reminded me of C.S Lewis and also the wars When reading one passage in particular I was reminded of the battle of Christianity against the fallen world and the meaning of salvation Silence Jacques is in the right Her evil cannot reach [...]


  4. The 5 star rating is for the series as a whole There is such a joy in falling into a fantasy world crafted by a person whose worldview I agree with, and whose writing I already respect I got to experience that joy with this series I have read N.D Wilson s Notes from a Tilt a Whirl and grown in my grasp of how incredible God is, and how truly magical this world is in which we live Examples Magnetism is an invisible force Our earth spins around the sun Muskrats build really thick huts when they se [...]


  5. Review Originally postedHEREThis review is for the entire trilogy.I am not sure if I can put into words how much I LOVE this trilogy And I am forever grateful to my sister for suggesting it to me and then buying me all three books THIS is what a fantasy story should be I can t even believe some people on gave it less than a 4 or 5 They couldn t have been reading the same books OK I will give you some concrete reasons now.The character development is deep, meaningful and believable We see Henry g [...]


  6. N.D Wilson has written an enthralling finish to the 100 Cupboards series Although I got a little lost in the second book, I really enjoyed this read I think the ingredients that created this enjoyment for me were as follows Firstly, Henry was paired up for a lot of the book with his cousin Henrietta again, and I really enjoy the interaction Wilson writes between those two characters It was nice to have Henry s buddy Zeke very prominent throughout as well and him adventuring along with Henry and [...]


  7. WOW Just when I thought this series couldn t get any exciting, N.D Wilson really cranked it up I was held captive by the Chestnut King I truly could not put this book down The entire series really I read all three books in less than 5 days, while I had 3 kids home for summer vacation It was an incredible adventure and I was truly swept away into the cupboards again with this third and last book in the trilogy This book is non stop action from the very beginning The author does such a fantastic j [...]




  8. This world was not the witch s She did not own the stars, she had not shaped the seas Her storm could break This is not your run of the mill fantasy It s real, it s moving, it s funny, and it even has a little bit of baseball in there.I love the way the characters are developed I love the relationships between the characters and the way they grow individually and grow together as a group War is depicted, and so is love.Not the sappy kind of love from romances The real kind of love between famili [...]


  9. This is not the most sophisticated review, but here goes I read the other two books before I read this then took a month off and read some other stuff Coming back to the trilogy I found the first third of the book to be slow To put it nicely There are just way too many pages ab Henry opening the portal of a cabinet with the strength of the world around him as opposed to physically crawling through a cabinet downstairs Like, alright I get it already.But somewhere around page 180ish, I read a few [...]


  10. The epic conclusion to one of my favorite book series These books were amazing, and this one was so intriguing Someone needs to make a movie for this series ASAP I really loved the series, and would recommend them highly.





  11. Knowing that the dual prequel is coming soon, I listened for echoes of Ashtown Surely the Endor imprisonments were burials Are the many bells related to the silent ones we re all so impatient too hear about Will we find historical figures besides Robert Kirk in the Cupboards world Also in anticipation of the prequel, I found myself desperately hoping that they find a different reader for the audiobook C3PO s voice for Richard Zeke s voice perpetually cracking Narration that doesn t seem to have [...]


  12. Readers of fantasy fiction will feel familiar with many of the situations Henry faces A seemingly invincible villain intent bringing unspeakable evil to the world, a final battle between good and evil, unusual alliances, and a young hero who yearns than anything to just live a normal life all these are time honored fantasy traditions However, they feel fresh and newly important in The Chestnut King, in large part due to the simple yet masterful writing Take this small moment, when Henry is runn [...]


  13. While the writing style was quite hard to follow at times okay, a lot of the time due to its start stop tendencies and overall vagueness it was a delightful series to read The actual story itself and the world contained in the printed ink was grand enough to excuse the confusion which would occasionally snap me out of the story.The conclusion to the series was good, a fitting ending, but it didn t seem to come full circle, to connect the end of the story with the beginning, which is very importa [...]


  14. One word fantastical N.D Wilson does it again When I first saw the cover of 100 Cupboards, and since I was out of library books, I checked it out Never did I think I would be so captivated by a lonely boy named Henry, who moves to Henry, Kansas, and becomes best friends with his cousin, Henrietta At first, I kind of thought it was a joke, a nice, funny book for kids.But when I started reading, I got and into it Before I knew it, the book was finished and I wanted Much to my disappointment, wh [...]


  15. Life has kept me busy and it s taken me far too long to finish this book I say that because I think my busyness and scattered thoughts kept me from getting into the book as deeply as I could have It felt a bit wandery, and at times jumpy to me, but I m not 100% sure it s the book s fault or my own Let s just say a lot happens in this book, there s a rather large cast of characters, a lot to keep track of, some head hopping, and a bit of pun intended you ll get it you ve read the previous book fl [...]


  16. I devoured this book in one 4 hour sitting this afternoon It was brilliant My heart rate is still up and the adrenaline is still flowing strong Yes, it was THAT good The Chestnut King takes us with Henry York Macabee and his family and friends as they search for a means to bring down the witch queen, Nimiane, once and for all There is a lot of action, peril, and adventure throughout the entire plot The writing continues to be emotive It is amazing how much Henry s character grew in the course of [...]


  17. So, here s the plot Henry is staying with his relatives in Kansas, when their house is transported to a magical world and they must battle an evil witch OK, Toto, sound familiar Well other than getting a general idea of the story, I find myself completely lost while listening to this audiobook The plot definitely shows promise In his uncle and aunt s house, Henry discovers a cupboard with 99 doors that lead into other worlds But, an evil witch, Niniane, must be defeated before she kills Henry an [...]


  18. In this final installment in N.D Wilson s 100 CUPBOARDS fantasy trilogy for children, Henry is living in the world behind the cupboards with his real family, but he is still able to get to Kansas to play baseball with his friend Zeke Henry has a lot on his mind He s been having scary visions that seem prophetic and he is worried about the scar that s growing on his face It was caused by a drop of the evil witch s blood and Henry suspects that it will eventually drive him mad and or give the witc [...]


  19. This was my favorite book of the series It has been a long time since I read the first two, and had lost interest, but finally decided to give it a whirl It was confusing since Wilson doesn t do much re capping, just keeps going like the previous book never ended Once I started to remember what was happening, this one introduced some interesting complications and characters to the story It jumps around a lot, it s sometimes hard to keep track of what and who is in what world or land, and gets a [...]


  20. This one really does top the series off It builds slowly at times, springing into action just enough to keep the feeling of adventure But in doing so it builds beautifully and beautiful really is the right word for it to the climax.The imagination of Lewis and the poetic narrative of Tolkien pervade this conclusion Wilson certainly grew as a writer through the trilogy.Loved it.Favourite part the rising of the Faeries under the Chestnut King.


  21. Who would have thought such lyrical sentences could be written about humble Kansas I am absolutely captivated by Henry York and his travels throughout the 100 Cupboards I just started Chestnut King last night and am absorbed already N.D Wilson is that rare writer who not only writes beautifully, but captures ones entire attention with his lovely prose Bravo


  22. Wilson finishes his fantasy trilogy strong This book could appeal to students in both upper elementary and early teens The 100 Cupboards trilogy has excellent action adventure material to hook young boys, but is emotionally sophisticated enough to appeal to girls as well.


  23. okayyyy so N D Wilson has done it again He has completely blown me away This book was so amazing The fact that this book made me sob with happy and sad tears at the same time shows how brilliant Wilson is and how much talent he has READ THIS BOOK
