The Magician's Nephew is the first of C.S. Lewis' tales in his series of novels, The Chronicles of Narnia. Not only does his novel, with its charming fairytale- like themes, take the reader through an exciting journey to worlds beyond his own, but it also leaves him wondering how wonderful magic is, yet how dreadful it could also be. Both Aslan, the founder of the peaceful land of Narnia, and Jaddis, the Queen of the ruined land of Charm, are capable of practicing magic. Lewis shows that the struggle between good and evil, white and dark magic has ever since been existed among rulers of other worlds, just as it exists in ours. There is no good without evil, but to whom should victory be declared, this is what the reader discovers for himself in the coming tales of The Chronicles of Narnia.
Wonderful story for people of all ages. I enjoyed it as a child and I enjoy now. Would definitely recommend if you need something for the entire family to enjoy together.
I have loved these books since I was a child. They're inspiring and magical and male me want to be better!
I believe this book should be read last in the series since it is written from that perspective. there are many holes in Narnia's history that this book fills in that don't mean much unless you've already read the other books. what is chronologically the first book but it should be read last as it was released last.
Gave me a taste for the time in history when one would look forward to listening to a wonderful narrated story of adventure on the Radio. Bonus is knowing the author's moral parable that is being told.
