Reviews - What do customers think about The Magician's Nephew (Narnia)?
A wonderful book Apr 22, 2008
I'm 8, and my mom is typing my review. I think The Magician's Nephew is very heavy on the story of Adam and Eve. Like when Digory was tempted to eat the apple. But you don't have to be a Christian to enjoy this book. The Magician's Nephew has a lot of imagination in it. Like the Lion singing a birth of living creatures. Just like spring. And a horse that became a horse with wings in seconds.
I think this book is in the same category as The Hobbit, The Lord of Rings, and Harry Potter. But people think this book can't be enjoyed by adults because the main characters are kids. But that's wrong.
The Beginning Feb 16, 2008
This book is a must-read for any age. It appeals to an indefinite age group, as in contains elements of fantasy and wonder, yet still manages to carry depth and philosophy ponderous for adults. It is a series of books that can and should be read from an early age to those in their seasoned years.
a book of fantasy and wonder Jan 28, 2008
This book is a wonderful fictional masterpiece, portraying a magical world where anything can happen. The main characters, Digory and Polly, are sucked into a magical wood by a deluded and eccentric uncle. There they discover that they can transport themselves to different worlds, and end up waking evil Queen Jadis and releasing her into Narnia. This book is wonderful, especially if you have read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, because it explains a lot about the book, and it really is a great read.
Well read! Jan 25, 2008
Kenneth Branagh makes you feel pampered. Buy this book on CD if you want to treat yourself to something extraordinary.
Branagh uses just the right mix of tenderness and boldness as he reads the story. His performance is worth the price of the book on CD.
Great Beginnings Oct 27, 2007
Every great journey has a beginning. The Chronicles of Narnia is well served with this book. While this story is foundational to all the adventures that will follow, it is a complete entity unto itself.
The characters are vivid, the settings will capture the imagination of readers, and way that Lewis writes makes you feel more like your watching a movie than reading a book. This series is a great gift to young reluctant readers.
