    1. J.G. Keely says:
      Suffers from the same problems as Lewis other books, both his children s fantasy and his pokes at theology Lewis worldview is not sophisticated, and his sense of psychology has a large blind spot However, it s not his faith that is the problem it certainly wasn t a problem for Donne or Milton.Lewis is simply unable to put himself in another s shoes, which is very problematic for a writer or a theologian He cannot understand the reasons or motivations for why someone would do something he conside [...]

      It s mildly embarrassing that I ve lived almost 32 years and I ve only read one book from the Narnia series Well, I guess I ve read two now, but I feel like I should have read those a long time ago As an adult, it s difficult to even rate this book fairly because the adult version of myself wants to be all critical and make comments about how this isn t Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, but it s not supposed to be And that s fine with me Is this the first book in the series Is it the sixth Does [...]

      No great wisdom can be reached without sacrifice I loved the narration of The Magician s Nephew, it s clear, imaginative, and addicting This book took me book to the time when I was sitting and listening to my grandma s tales She always told me about folklores I can still remember the story about there s a ghost hiding in the closet, it made me so scared and never ever wanted to open the closet alone again.This book literally made me feel like that I kept wondering why I did and figured out beca [...]

      My autistic spectrum son Jonathan is fascinated by the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe He wants to know what her motivation is Why is she always so angry he asks Why does she hate Aslan Who is she like These are good questions I have suggested that he should read The Magician s Nephew, but Jonathan only reads the books he wants to read and ignores recommendations A pity, I would like to discuss it with him.The White Witch is the best character in the series, and it is indeed [...]

      I have owned this beautiful set of illustrated hardback editions of these books since childhood and am only now getting around to reading them After reading this spellbinding first installment I am so mad at myself that I have missed out on entering this world for so long.I decided to begin reading this series in chronological rather than publication order as per the numbers on my books and I am so glad I did This brilliantly sets up the rest of the series without giving any spoilers of what is [...]

      This is one of those books that make you feel good on a bad day It just puts a smile on your face, whether you read it for the first time as an adult or you relive some of the moments of you childhood through it And no, I am not that old, even if here I sound like I am ancient hahaha

    7. Eyebright says:
      Despite the fact that The Magicians Nephew is the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia, strangely, it is frequently overlooked People skip straight ahead to The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, and then, at a later date come back to this book.Personally, I like this book just as well as any others in the series I love to see how everything got started, the lamp post, the wardrobe, the White Witch Not to mention the beautiful allegory of Creation The Magician s Nephew also has good morals, an [...]

      El sobrino del mago es un libro maravilloso, lleno de magia, de valores, de reflejos de una realidad actual, que me sorprende que se haya escrito hace a os Es una saga especial y confi a los padres estos libros para que se los lean a sus hijos, porque es de suma importancia que entiendan el mensaje, y los s mbolos que tiene, adem s que el estilo es muy fresco y sencillo de ser interpretado Nunca es tarde para leer las cr nicas, siempre encuentras cosas diferentes, siempre te diviertes y nunca pa [...]

      The Magician s Nephew tells of how it all started How Narnia was created How the first Sons of Adam, and Daughters of Eve traveled to Narnia And, how the wardrobe came to be A wonderful read, full of magic, wit, adventure, and hope.Next, Spoiler alert.I noticed that CS Lewis seemed to point out similarites between Uncle Andrew and his nephew, Digory That s not a good thing Uncle Andrew was selfish, un caring, and really, a blundering fool While reading, I often found myself wondering if Digory w [...]

    12. Mario says:
      I really enjoyed reading this one Fun and fast read, and I also loved reading about how it all started And even though I noticed a lot of connections with Christianity, I didn t pay a lot of attention to it I just enjoyed the story in general.I think this is probably my favorite, right after Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe.

    13. Bookwraiths says:
      Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths The Magician s Nephew by C.S Lewis is one of those books I read just because Because I d read The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe when I was a kid Because I always wondered what exactly Narnia was Because I d watched all the Narnia movies with my kids Because it was sitting on my son s shelf collecting dust and it had a number one written on it i.e first book of the series So because of all those reasons, I wiped the dust off of it and read it.This book isn t [...]

    14. Annie says:
      Even though The Magician s Nephew was written as the sixth book of the Narnia series, the story predates The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Seeing as this served as the prelude to the series, I chose to begin with this Lewis himself is known to have shown a slight preference to this order of reading, rather than in the order of publication And the reason to why I have chosen to start reading a children s book now relates to the arrival of a very tiny human being in the Paul household, exactly [...]

      I ve gotten so used to always having a new Narnia book to read when I feel in the mood and now I only have one book to read Then I m finished It s kinda sad actually lol But I really had a good time reading this one Definitely another favorite But who am I kidding I ve LOVED every Narnia book I ve read thus far xD I would love to see this as a movie along with some of the others I hope they continue making them Anyone else feel the same P Great book all in all Loved getting to see how Narnia go [...]

      Just finished reading this to hubby He is now, officially, a Narnian.

    17. Alex Farrand says:
      A damn fine woman The Magician s Nephew is about the beginning of Narnia Two children, Polly and Digory, are pushed into an adventure that leads to an unexpected, magical world by Digory s Uncle Andrew What do the children s curious eyes discover, and what mishaps lay before them The Magician s Nephew is the prequel to the Chronicles of Narnia.At first I was unsure where to begin Should I start chronologically here with The Magician s Nephew, or should I start by publication with The Lion, the W [...]

    18. AnnaMarie says:
      I thought this book was so beautiful Favorite quotes parts He put on a very high, shiny, stiff collar of the sort that made you hold your chin up all the time He put on a white waistcoat with a pattern on it and arranged his watch chain across the front He took his eye glass, with the thick black ribbon, and screwed it into his eye then he looked at himself in the mirror.Children have one kind of silliness, as you know, and grown ups have another kind At this moment Uncle Andrew was beginning t [...]

    20. Loran (Algonquiins) says:
      I somehow missed out on reading the Chronicles of Narnia when I was a child and recently my roommate bought a box set of the entire series so I figured what better time to amend my ways I honestly didn t know anything about Narnia when I started The Magician s Nephew because I haven t seen the movies or read the books before and I didn t expect to like it as much as I did C.S Lewis writes with such a fun and whimsical style that I was drawn into the story pretty quickly My favorite thing about t [...]

    21. Annabeth says:
      Wow this was a really great reread I noticed so many things I didn t when reading this as a kid, mainly the religious symbolisms of Aslan, the Witch, uncle Andrew etc A short but very enjoyable story

    22. Kimberley doruyter says:
      this one should really be read before the others s a wonderful book to read to your children and give them a love for books for life.

    23. K.D. Absolutely says:
      I really liked how C S Lewis imagined how those things that he earlier introduced in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe came into existence the kingdom of Narnia, the professor, the witch, the wardrobe and the lamp post Wiki says that Lewis wrote this right after publishing that first book in order of publication but it took him 6 years to finish it That s probably the reason why this became Book 6 again in order of publication.I am glad that I ve read this as my third book and not the first I [...]

    24. Marie says:
      I loved the Chronicles of Narnia as a child and was excited to read this with my 8 year old son As a child, I thought it was so magical and amazing that these children got to escape to different worlds As an adult, I now see the parallels to the bible, and the messages it is intending to teach The end of the book becomes a retelling of sorts of the story of the creation story from the bible I must say my remembrance of the book was that of a 5 star read, but in re reading it, I can only give 4 s [...]

    25. Luke Taylor says:
      So what is The Magician s Nephew What is the sunrise What is the miracle of spring surviving winter What is the shape shifting of the moon or the sound of fresh snow fallen upon the earth You might just say it s Creation.Or you might say it s magic.So I say, as a writer and a man who will forever be bound to the incessant need to communicate what I see imaginary or otherwise through the use of written words, that it is the magic of creation that beautiful moment of spontaneous freedom so cleverl [...]

    26. Erin Clemence says:
      The Magician s Nephew is by all accounts, the sixth book in The Chronicles of Narnia series However, the anthology I am lucky enough to own of the Great Lewis works, has this novel as the first story, with a description that it is the order the author would want the books to be in It makes sense too really, as Nephew tells the story of how Narnia originated, and how it was first discovered I picked up this novel and re read it after having a challenging to say the least few weeks Lewis and his w [...]

    27. Jamie says:
      I originally read this many years ago as a child.This is one of my favorites in the entire series It is the creation and beginning of Narnia It ties so much of the story together and really lets you know who and what the queen is And just how powerful Aslan is Meet Diggory and Polly as the journey to other worlds The forest of pools is amazing and I wish we got to see some of the other worlds I love these two characters From their attic explorations, to naive child like mistakes And the uncle of [...]

      The Creation of Narnia A Book Review of The Magician s Nephew by C S Lewis For readers who have started their journey in the magical land of Narnia by means of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and subsequent books in the series following the original order by publication , one can t help but wonder how had this fantastical realm ruled by a majestic lion and inhabited by talking animals, fauns, dryads and naiads, along with equally ghastly creatures, came to be.Previous instalments would have [...]
