The Magician’s Nephew

The First book in the Chronicles of Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis (I think?)

Synopsis: The secret passage to the house next door leads to a fascinating adventure. NARNIA… where the woods are thick and cool, where talking beasts are called to life… a new world where adventure begins. Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory’s Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to… somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion’s song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

Okay so my copy says that it’s the first book, but when I went on goodreads to put my review it’s saying it’s the sixth book? So I’m thoroughly confused about which book it is, but since mine says first I’ll go with that…

So awhile ago I read the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, And at the time I hadn’t realized it wasn’t the first book in the series! So I decided to finally give this one a go!

It was a super cute and fun book! The characters kind of annoyed me at times, especially Uncle Andrew and Digory but the story itself was good. It was whimsical and magical, as a Narnia book should be (in my opinion).

I absolutely loved seeing the creation of Narnia! That was super interesting, and honestly quite beautiful.. although you’re obviously not there witnessing it, the scene is described with so much detail that you can very vividly imagine it! I loved seeing how the famous lamp came to be and how the talking animals and witch happened to come across Narnia.

I really enjoyed this book. If you’re a fan of the lion the witch and the wardrobe I would say that this is a definite book you shouldn’t skip! You should actually probably read this book first!

I rate this book
