The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis: Book Review

My Review

My Rating: 5/5

The Magician’s Nephew is a story of creation and hope. I haven’t read The Chronicles of Narnia by by C. S. Lewis since I was a child so I was surprised to find myself drawn into the story as much I had been growing up.

Polly and Digory are forced to travel to new worlds by Digor’s uncle, but they find themselves exploring in wonder. My own childish wonder dove at the opportunity to explore with them.

The Magician’s Nephew (and the rest of The Chronicles of Narnia series) is a fantasy classic and shaped my childhood imagination – something I would be boring without as a adult.

There are a few issues that come through which are certainly from a dated point of view on C. S. Lewis’ part, but if you ignore them and focus on the story itself, you cannot deny the incredible invention of it.
