The Magician's Nephew - Book Review

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis is the sixth book in The Chronicles of Narnia series. By all rights, it should be book one. The Magician’s Nephew explains the creation of the wonderful land of Narnia.

C. S. Lewis’ protagonists in this novel are Polly Plummer and Digory Kirke. They are next door neighbors in London, England. Digory’s father is a career soldier stationed in India. Digory’s mother is an invalid. The mother and son are staying with relatives, Aunt Letty and Uncle Andrew. Uncle Andrew is a minor magician. Thus, the book’s titling The Magician’s Nephew.

In the book, the reader watches the creation of Narnia. The place begins as a dark void. It is so dark; it is impossible to see the person beside you. A song, a song like no other, begins and light creeps into this dark world.

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

Like the other novels, this one is a story of good versus evil. Polly and Digory battle the evil forces and are the victors. Aslan, the lion, is by their side, but it is their inner goodness which rules the day. Read what Digory does for the mother whom he loves so dearly.

Uncle Andrew may not be very magical, but is the magican in the title ofThe Magician’s Nephew. You will think on the book’s events for days, if not for years. If you have not read this classic novel, please get a copy and enjoy the story.

Buy a copy of The Magician’s Nephew for your home library. You will read the book many times and share it with others.
