The Magician's Nephew - Book Review

The Magicianís Nephew by C. S. Lewis is book six in The Chronicles of Narnia series, yet chronologically it is book one. By reading theThe Magicianís Nephew you will come to understand how Narnia is created.

Plummer and Digory Kirke are the protagonists of this novel. They live next door to one another in London, England. Digory has a somewhat unspectacular life with his father away as a career soldier stationed in India, and his mother is an invalid. They are staying with relatives, Aunt Letty and Uncle Andrew. Because Uncle Andrew is a minor magician, and Digory is his nephew the book is titled The Magicianís Nephew.

Through reading this book, the reader observes the creation of Narnia. The place begins as a black emptiness. It is so dark; it is unfeasible to see anything, even if it is right beside you. Then we hear a song, and light creeps into this dark world.

The creation of Narnia, and other objects so pivotal in later stories, is beautiful. Read The Magicianís Nephew and meet the first King and Queen of Narnia. Come and meet the ancestors of the animals and wood creatures.

This one is a story of good versus evil. Polly and Digory battle the evil forces and are the victors. By their side is Aslan, the lion, but it is through their own innate integrity that they are victorious. Digory loves his mother dearly and his actions are so special.

Uncle Andrew may not be very enchanted or magical yet, he is definitely the magician in the title ofThe Magicianís Nephew. Ponder as you read the book to see the deeper meaning, or just enjoy the story for what you read.

I hope you will add this book The Magicianís Nephew to your home library. Or you may want to watch the video. The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe [HD] .
