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 difficult to think of anyone who strongly resembles her. But there are some important differences. The other witches are ugly, and it's plausible to believe that they are motivated by envy of the heroines' effortless youth and beauty.

This is perhaps most evident with Auntie Medusa; I love the scene where she's removing her false eyelashes and Penny involuntarily recoils in horror. The White Witch, however, is genuinely beautiful, not just using magic to cast an illusion of beauty as Madame Mim and the Sea Witch do on occasion. She doesn't order Maugrim to kill Susan and Lucy because they're better-looking. It is, rather, a political decision: Nothing personal, just business. In general, it seems to me, the White Witch is motivated entirely by love of power, and she hates Aslan because he is stronger than she is.

She is in fact a rather good children's book adaptation of Milton's Satan. But why did C. Lewis decide to make her a woman? I'd love to know the background to that artistic decision.

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: View 1 comment. 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 I have owned this beautiful set of illustrated hardback editions of these books since childhood and am only now getting around to reading them.

This brilliantly sets up the rest of the series without giving any spoilers of what is to come. The particulars of the plot for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe are well known to me, as I have seen the movie adaptation numerous times, and it made reading this so special and exciting as facets from the second book were incorporated into the first. Regardless of the order, this is one series I believe has universal appeal, regardless of age, and is one that everyone must read at some point in their lifetime!

I hadn't been to Narnia in 11 years, and I wanted to take my daughters there for the very first time this summer, so I called my son my Narnia expert and asked him if I could skip The Magician's Nephew this time around, when I read it to his sisters.

My son was an only child for 12 years, before the Disney princesses, Pocahontas and Jasmine, arrived , and I read to him, every night, religiously, for an hour, including C. Lewis's Narnia collection. He's in college now, and he's a very respec I hadn't been to Narnia in 11 years, and I wanted to take my daughters there for the very first time this summer, so I called my son my Narnia expert and asked him if I could skip The Magician's Nephew this time around, when I read it to his sisters.

It's so much more exciting! I was still hesitant, even as I started to read it to my daughters, but within just a few pages, I remembered why it's important not to skip it. I could intuitively sense, within the first few chapters, that this book influenced not only J. Tolkien, but Robert Jordan and J.

Rowling, as well. I could feel it, I could feel the connection between their writings and this work. And I was reminded of how Polly and Digory couldn't help but wonder about Rowling's Cedric Diggory here are allowed to witness the birth of a world, along with Digory's reluctant uncle, the cockney Cabby and his horse, Strawberry.

This was, for me, the most stunning part of the story, and C. Lewis does a beautiful job of capturing both the grandeur and awe of Creation here. If you had seen and heard it, as Digory did, you would have felt quite certain that it was the stars themselves which were singing, and that it was the First Voice, the deep one, which had made them appear and made them sing.

Well, all of us except Jadis. I startled my daughters, twice, while imitating her speech. And Aslan. Does Aslan ever get old? I'll call my son and confirm that he was correct.

Yes, you've got to read this one first. View all 28 comments. 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 Despite the fact that The Magicians Nephew is the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia, strangely, it is frequently overlooked. The Magician's Nephew also has good morals, and I really appriciate that. I would recommend this book to anyone, boy or girl, old or young.

Please feel free to read and enjoy the series however you deem best. I haven't read any of the Chronicles of Narnia in six years, and now have very little opinion on the debate of what order to read these good books in. My previous opinion was based on my long-lived, chronological order reading preference.

I liked to see things in a linear sequence. View all 19 comments. Oh gosh, how many years must it be since I last read this book, 30? A true joy to read, that is how writing should be. Probably one of the lesser known Narnia books but the start of the series none the less and our first introduction to Aslan, and a delight to read.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The Magician's Nephew tells of how it all started. How Narnia was created. And, how the wardrobe came to be. A wonderful read, full of magic, wit, adventure, and hope. Next, Spoiler alert. 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 The Magician's Nephew tells of how it all started. While reading, I often found myself wondering if Digory was destined to end up like his Uncle. But, my dear friends, I can happily tell you he does not.

The power to overcome our weaknesses, our evil tendencies, and even our bad genes, is very real. Especially when we surround ourselves with good people, as Digory did. Though we may not always have all the power needed residing in our own being, know there is a much higher, and greater power to call on. The evil Queen Jadis, so horribly magnificent. She is obviously, the serpent of the story. I find it interesting that Queen Jadis had to be awakened, before she could cause any damage. Is that not how it really works?

We let, and somtimes invite, our own serepnt in, even if we don't specifically mean to do just that. And it's usually through those weaknesses that it happens. Digory was a very curious boy. Digory woke her by ringing a bell that was sitting in the middle of the room.

He had no idea what he was doing, when he did it. But sometimes curiosity overrides judgement. Polly, Digory's friend throughout the story, was never even tempted to ring the bell. I find she is a great support for Digory, even though they may be very different. Surrounding yourself with others with different strengths and opinions, help us to be balanced and reasonable. And of course, the regal and just Aslan.

The king, the savior of the Story. I laughed throughout this book, but there were two times that I cried. You should know that Digory left behind a Mother who is deathly ill. He wanted nothing more than to have her be healed and well again. He missed her. Aslan sent Digory on a mission, to make up for awakening the queen, and thus bringing her to Narnia.

Before he leaves, and Aslan asks him if he's ready for his mission. He had had for a second some wild idea of saying "I'll try to help you if you'll promise to help my Mother," but he realized in time that the Lion was not at all the sort of person one could try to make bargains with. But when he had said "Yes," he thought of his Mother, and he thought of the great hopes he had had, and how they were all dying away, and a lump came in his throat and tears in his eyes, and he blurted out: What he saw surprised him as much as anyhting in his whole life.

For the tawny face was bent near his own and wonder of wonders great shining tears stood in the Lion's eyes. They were such big, bright tears compared with Digory's won that for a moment he felt as if the Lion must really be sorrier about his Mother than he was himself. Grief is great.

The Magician's Nephew

Only you and I in this land know that yet. He didn't know how it was to be done but he felt quite sure now that he would be able to do it. These apples give you endless life. So he takes an apple, puts it in his pocket, and returns to Aslan.

They throw the apple, and it plants itself in the earth, where a new, large and wonderful tree grows. And this is what happens next. What I give you now will bring joy. It will not, in your world, give endless life, but it will heal.

Pluck [your Mother] an apple from the Tree. It was as if the whole world had turned inside out and upside down. And then, like someone in a dream, he was walking across to the Tree, and the King and Queen and were cheering him and all the creatures were cheering too.

After doing Aslan's bidding, knowing he will get nothing in return, he does receive something in return. What he's wanted with his whole heart throughout the book. Because of Aslan. This kind, just, and merciful creator of Narnia. View all 5 comments. 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. Mar 25, Bradley rated it really liked it Shelves: Reading with my little girl. The formation of Narnia, of certain rings, and a lion's song.

And, of course, apples. In certain ways, I liked the more than the first time and less as well. The first half was an awful old slog that had me as bored as my daughter while we were in dreary old England. But once we got to the fight in the streets and the chaos that drove the group to empty Narnia, I think we were both pretty excited.

From then on, too. Quite nice to experience the backstory this way. Much better now as an adult, too. That light post sure means a lot more. View all 4 comments. I first read these books at about ten years of age, and I remember that for the most part, I loved them. The Magician's Nephew is actually the sixth book of the series, but was written with the intention of it being a prelude, to The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, which, back in the day, was my favourite of the series.

I enjoyed reading just how Narnia was discovered, and meeting Aslan himself. He is probably my favourite character in Narnia. It was interesting to have some question's answered I first read these books at about ten years of age, and I remember that for the most part, I loved them.

It was interesting to have some question's answered too, such as, what does the lamppost have to do with anything?

And,why did the Witch dislike Aslan so much? Reading this book in my thirties, I realise that apart from being an imaginative fantasy book, there are some moral lessons in there for children to take away and think about. However, I really disapproved of the rather strong and seemingly constant biblical references contained in the story. It simply wasn't needed, and quite honestly, I felt like I had the book of Genesis shoved in my face.

The story would have stood well enough without it, and that is why, even though I do love the series, I cannot give this book higher than three stars. View all 7 comments.

Feb 24, Ida rated it liked it. Starting Narnia while writing my Bachelor thesis was probably not the best idea.. I love how the story was being told, and I kept hearing Liam Neeso Starting Narnia while writing my Bachelor thesis was probably not the best idea..

I love how the story was being told, and I kept hearing Liam Neesons voice while reading, but to be honest I found the book quite boring. I read and re-read those books until they literally fell apart. Tumnus, Eustace, Prince Caspian, Reepicheep, and all the other lovely characters in the series.

I re-read this series every few years because the stories are still incredibly enjoyable for me. Religious allegory and symbolism never enter my head as I read this For Christmas when I was 9 years old, my parents gave me a box set of The Chronicles of Narnia.

Religious allegory and symbolism never enter my head as I read this series I enjoy it as delightful children's fantasy and leave the author's religious views out of it. The books do impart important lessons on friendship, loyalty, cowardice and bravery, respect, forgiveness, and love. Just a lovely book series for children and adults alike! So, as part of GAR, I'm re-reading this series.

Frequently bought together

I started with The Magician's Nephew because even though this book was published as the fifth book of the series, it is a prequel to the other books explaining how Narnia was created. I listened to an audio book version of this novel. At just under 4 hours long, it was an easy afternoon listen as I did housework and worked in my garden. Kenneth Branagh narrated. He read at a nice even pace. Despite my hearing loss, I could easily hear and understand the entire book. It was great to re-visit an old favorite!

I'm currently on my library's waiting list for the next audio book: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. I'm happy to be 16 waiting on 4 copies. The wait means that others are reading this lovely series, and that makes me happy! I have the "real'' book on my keeper shelf, of course. But I'm going to continue listening to audio book versions until I've listened to the whole series. Up til now I have read the books, watched video versions Loving it so far! I know as a young child the books gave me hours and hours of happiness Since the s when the books were first published, this series has given so much joy and wonder to so many readers.

It's just outstanding! Favorite character -- easy choice for me -- Reepicheep, the very brave mouse! Before all is said and done, I will have re-read all 7 books in the series. While I wait for The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe to come available at the library, I will move on and read other books from the list.

I can't wait until the television series starts airing on PBS on September 11, !! Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths. Lewis is one of those books I read just because. Because I always wondered what exactly Narnia was. So because of all those reasons, I wiped the dust off of it and read it. This b Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths. Well, I guess Aslan is there toward the end, but honestly, the majority of the book is about Digory Kirke and Polly Plummer and that was okay, because their story was easy to grasp.

You see, these two neighbors met, become friends then decide to explore the attic connecting their houses. Hence the name of our book: It seems Uncle Andrew has been dabbling in ancient magic that allows one to travel between worlds.

In order to save Polly, Digory is blackmailed by his uncle into testing another magic ring so as to follow Polly; our young hero also takes two green ones just in case they can actually try to return home. When Digory touches his yellow ring it transports him to a wood between the worlds where he finds Polly alive and well. Also, there is a series of pools which the two discover leads to separate universes. Of course, our two, young adventures decide not to immediately return home to England but to explore a different world and so jump into one of the nearby pools.

Instantaneously, Digory and Polly find themselves in a desolate, abandoned city of some strange, ancient world, which they later learn is Charn. Inside an ancient building, which they surmise must have been a palace, they discover a huge room filled with statuesque figures of Charn's former kings and queens. Uncle Andrew is an arrogant visionary who believes that the rules of morality do not apply to him.

He has made two types of rings from magic dust, one he thinks will send the children to another world and one will bring them back from that world. He tricks Polly into touching the yellow ring whereupon she vanishes; then he tells Digory about the green rings which he believes will bring them back and shames Digory into going to rescue Polly. Polly and Digory soon find out that Uncle Andrew is wrong about the rings. The yellow rings send them into a wood between the worlds where there are many small ponds of water.

Each pond leads to a different world when one wears the green rings. Digory and Polly decide to explore one of the other worlds. The wolrd they land in is an old world called Charn. There they find no living creature until they inadvertantly wake up Jadis, who had been the evil Queen of Charn. It was she who had spoken the word of magic that killed every living thing on her world.

Now she was anxious to find new worlds to conquor so she forces Digory and Polly to take her back to their world. There Jadis causes an increasing amount of turmoil, until Polly and Digory manage to take her, Uncle Andrew, A hansome cab driver, Frank; and his horse, Strawberry all with them to the wood between the world. Then as they try to escape Jadis, they jump into the wrong pond and end up in a world of darkness.

Soon they here singing, which the children and the Cabby think is the most beautiful music they have ever heard. Nothing seems to be living. Polly, still unnerved, wants to go home but when Digory mentions that she should not be afraid to explore, she changes her mind. She is not afraid, saying she will go where he goes. To ease her mind, Digory suggests they remove their yellow rings and put them in the opposite pocket from their greens.

If they found themselves in danger they could just slip their hands into their pockets and be off. They set off exploring, awed by the sheer size of the building they are in.

They eventually end up in a hall filled with wax-like statues of people. The figures are royally adorned and their countenances change as the children walk further past them. The first faces are kind and gentle, but the latter ones are cruel and evil. The final figure was the fiercest of all, beautiful but cruel. Digory suggests they examine a small pillar in the center of the room. On the pillar is a small golden bell and a hammer with which you strike the bell. Writing on the pillar suggests that if you strike the bell there could be danger, but if you do not strike the bell you would go mad wondering what would have happened.

Digory wants to strike the bell, but Polly does not. An argument ensues and just as Polly is reaching for her yellow ring, Digory grabs her hand and with his other hand, strikes the bell. The sound resonates through the hall, growing in volume until it is nearly unbearable.

Parts of the ceiling collapse around them until the sound finally ceases. The two think that the event is over when they hear a sound from the end of the room. The last figure, the fiercely beautiful one, rises from her chair and comes to the children, asking how she has been awakened. Digory takes responsibility for her waking. The woman states that Digory is not of royal blood and asks how he came to the palace.

Polly answers that they came by magic. Ignoring Polly, the queen again asks Digory if it is true. He responds affirmatively and the woman grabs him suddenly by the chin and studies him for several minutes before surmising that he is not a magician but rather traveled on another person's magic.

Digory tells her that it was Uncle Andrew's doing. The palace continues crumbling around them and the great lady takes the children out of the palace. To get out, the woman utters a spell which vaporizes the door and they exit onto a terrace of sorts where they could look out over the countryside.

Everything as far as they could see was as silent and dead as a city could be. A great red sun, a dying sun, was low on the horizon, thus explaining the reddish glow inside. The woman proceeds to tell the story of Charn and the battle which destroyed it. The woman is Jadis , the last Queen of Charn. Her sister refused to release the throne and the battle ensued.

When the last of her soldiers fell in battle, Jadis stood on the very terrace where the children now stood. As her sister came up the steps, Jadis uttered the Deplorable Word and all life, except her own, was blotted out forever. Digory asks why the sun is so red. As he finds out, it is because the sun is older and dying.

Since the sun in our own world is smaller and yellower, it is younger. This interests Jadis and she insists upon being taken to England at once. The children, unsure of how to proceed, try to talk the queen out of going. Jadis offers a tale as to Digory's association with royalty and how Andrew must be the ruler of our world. Polly tells her that the suggestion is rubbish and the queen, insulted, grabs Polly by the hair.

In doing so, she releases her hold on Polly's hand which is why neither she nor Digory could reach their rings. Once her hand is free, Polly yells to Digory to touch his ring and the world vanished from around them and they found themselves again in the Wood. Because the queen had been holding onto Polly's hair, she too was transported from Charn into the Wood proving that one did not need to wear a ring in order to be transported.

He or she simply needed to be touching someone who had a ring. When the queen arrives in the Wood, her strength dissipates and she becomes helplessly weak. They force her to release Polly and they head for the home pool. The witch cries out in a weak voice, begging the children not to leave her. Digory hesitates, feeling somewhat sorry for the witch. At Polly's urging, he leaps into the home pool.

As he jumps, however, he feels the pinch of a finger and thumb on his ear. As they draw closer to home, the grip tightens. When they arrive in Andrew's study, the old magician is in awe of what the children have brought with them. The witch had grabbed Digory by the ear and was thus transported with him. She has regained her strength and draws herself up to her full height, that of a giantess, and quickly assessed her situation.

Uncle Andrew nervously cracks his knuckles and licks his lips and bows repeatedly in order to quell the frightened sensation he feels. The queen demands to know who the magician is who brought her to this world.

Andrew eventually confesses that he is responsible. The witch violently grabs him by the hair and stares into his eyes. After a few moments she releases him, sending him sprawling across the room.

She has determined that he is a minor magician, not of royal lineage, and that his form of magic was destroyed in Charn long ago. She orders Andrew to procure transportation so she may set about the conquest of the world, warning him to do nothing treacherous or else. Andrew leaves sullenly. Left alone with the witch, the children fear for their safety, but the witch barely notices that they are present. She taps her foot impatiently, then leaves the room in search of Andrew.

The children breathe again at last, relieved that they are safe for now. Polly begins to leave and tells Digory that she will not return until he has apologized for his behavior in Charn. Digory apologizes and convinces Polly to return later to help get Jadis out of England for the sake of not scaring his sick mother to death. Meanwhile, Andrew has dashed to his room and is dressing himself in his finest clothes, sipping brandy as he goes, ever convincing himself that the witch would fall in love with him.

He adorns himself in his best coat, vest, and top hat and leaves the room. He sends the maid out to get a hansom cab before stopping to ask Letitia Digory's Aunt for some money so he can entertain his distinguished guest. Letty, who is mending a mattress, refuses to let him have anything, seeing how she pays for all of his brandy and cigars. As Andrew begins to negotiate, the witch storms into the room, demanding to know how long she is to wait for her ride.

Andrew's vanity melts in the presence of the witch and he becomes the same sniveling worm he had always been. Letty, disapproving of the witch's bare arms and general appearance, demands that she leave at once or the police would be called.

The witch utters a spell to destroy Aunt Letty but finds that her power does not have any affect in this world. She instead grabs Letty by the neck and legs and throws her across the room before following Andrew to the hansom cab which has just arrived.

Digory is aghast that the witch is loose in London but must turn his attention to Aunt Letty who, thankfully, fell on the mattress after the witch's treatment of her. She asks the maid to call the police to report a lunatic on the loose. After Letty has been seen to, Digory begins to consider how to get the witch out of London.

He seats himself at the front window to wait for her to return. While waiting, he overhears a neighbor who has brought some grapes to Digory's sick mother. Letty mentions that only the land of youth would revive her, but the grapes would be a great start. This gets Digory thinking that there could perhaps be a land of youth that he could access through the Wood.

He is about to touch the yellow ring when the witch arrives, riding the hansom cab like a surfboard. The horse pulling the cab is mad with terror. It barely misses a lamppost but , because of the horse's near miss, the hansom crashes into the post and is smashed to bits. As the hansom crashes to a stop, the witch casually leaps from its roof and lands astride the horse, urging it into a more violent frenzy.

Onlookers arrive and goad the witch on. The hansom's owner arrives and attempts to calm the horse. As the police attempt to stop the witch, she reaches up and snaps a crossbar from the lamppost and brandishes it as a club, dropping policemen like sacks of wheat by bashing them in the skull.

Andrew has since crawled out of the destroyed hansom and is attempting to calm the situation. Digory has come forth to try to touch the witch and get ahold of her heel so he can touch his yellow ring.

Polly arrives, after a brief punishment for being gone for so long before, and helps Digory. Finally, Digory grabs the witch and yells to Polly, who is touching him, to put on her yellow ring.

The world vanishes away and the entire assortment of players arrive in the wood. Digory, Polly, Andrew, the cabby, his horse, and the witch, all stare in wonder at the green wood around them. The horse, Strawberry , calms at once. The witch slumps over the horse's neck in a near faint, and Andrew believes he is suffering from delirium.

Contented, the horse begins strolling toward the nearest pool.

Just as he dips to drinks, Digory calls out for Polly to switch to her green ring. The entire group disappears into the pool, descending into a landed on a solid emptiness. No light appears; Digory is confused as to why they have not arrived in the new world. He believes that they must be in Charn at midnight, but the witch refutes his idea, claiming that they were surrounded by Nothing. She declares that her doom has come.

The cabby suggests that they have all just fallen into a new tunnel for the subway and that they would all be rescued soon enough. He strikes up a hymn. For the sake of comfort, Polly and Digory join in. As they sing, Andrew sidles up to Digory and tells him to put on the ring so they can be off. Digory backs away from him with Polly in tow and declares that he would never be so horrible as to leave Polly or the Cabby.

Their aloneness is broken by the sound of a singing Voice, a lovely Voice that brought fear and wonder to the hearts of the strangers. Wether it was coming from all around them at once, or only from beneath them , they where unable to tell. Suddenly stars appear overhead and thousands of voices join with the first Voice. They sing with it for a time before fading away, but the first Voice continues to grow in strength.However publication order reflects Lewis's strategy for drawing readers into the world of Narnia.
