Book Review: The Magician’s Nephew
The blurb: The Adventure Begins. Narnia… where Talking Beasts walk… where a Witch waits… where a new world is about to be born. On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then the lion Aslan’s song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are possible….
My review: I didn’t realise what I had been missing out on by never having discovered Narnia as a child.
To say it is magical would be an understatement. This book is beautifully written and illustrated and answered so many questions I had after seeing the film version of, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
Brilliantly written, C. S. Lewis voice is a perfect blend of all knowing storyteller with a slightly ironic twist. It feels wonderfully old-fashioned but not-dated, like all great classics, it’s timeless. And what an imagination that man had, I’m always in awe of authors who create whole new worlds but C. S. Lewis created the most iconic and the most magical. A perfect reading treat.
9 out of 10 stars! *********
