    Suffers from the same problems as Lewis other books, both his children s fantasy and his pokes at theology Lewis worldview is not sophisticated, and his sense of psychology has a large blind spot However, it s not his faith that is the problem it certainly wasn t a problem for Donne or Milton.Lewis is simply unable to put himself in another s shoes, which is very problematic for a writer or a theologian He cannot understand the reasons or motivations for why someone would do something he considers evil Unlike Milton, he cannot create a tempting devil, a sympathetic devil, and so Lewis devils are not dangerous, because no one would ever fall for them.His villains are like Snidely Whiplash they are comically evil, evil not due to some internal motivation, but because the narrative requires it Yet Lewis is not reveling in the comedic promise of overblown evil, he s trying to be instructive So he dooms his own instruction it is only capable of warning us about dangers which are so ridiculous that they never could have tempted us in the first place.Likewise, his heroes are comically heroic they are not people who struggle to be good, who have motivations and an internal life, they are just habitually, inexplicably good There is nothing respectable in their characters, nothing in their philosophies for us to aspire to, they are just suffused with an indistinct goodness which, like evil, is taken for granted.But then, Lewis world is mostly a faultless one People never act...

    It s mildly embarrassing that I ve lived almost 32 years and I ve only read one book from the Narnia series Well, I guess I ve read two now, but I feel like I should have read those a long time ago As an adult, it s difficult to even rate this book fairly because the adult version of myself wants to be all critical and make comments about how this isn t Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, but it s not supposed to be And that s fine with me Is this the first book in the series Is it the sixth Does it even matter I m reading it first because I conducted a very thorough investigation into the series and determined that my plan to read them this way is the right way to read them However, my very scientific thorough analysis also concluded that this book can be read later and no one really cares and it doesn t really matter in the grand scheme of things Just read the series is all I m saying, although I haven t even read the series myself so that may be moderately premature on my part It was neat to read about the origins of Narnia Whoa did I just say neat That was an accident Lemme get back to words I actually use in real life It was awesome to read about the origins of Narnia The lamp post and the witch and whatnot Aslan That was just autocorrected to Asian so that was funny I don t have any reason to believe he is an Asian lion, but I again haven t read the entire series yet so that could be explored in future novels where Aslan spends his childhood as a sm...

    No great wisdom can be reached without sacrifice I loved the narration of The Magician s Nephew, it s clear, imaginative, and addicting This book took me book to the time when I was sitting and listening to my grandma s tales She always told me about folklores I can still remember the story about there s a ghost hiding in the closet, it made me so scared and never ever wanted to open the closet alone again.This book literally made me feel like that I kept wondering why I did and figured out because of its voice that was very classic and magical that I didn t want it to be over Besides the fun I get from this book, The Magician s Nephew is alike a doctrine as if I was reading the Bible What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing It also depends on what sort of person you are Lewis had his way to tell the story He thoroughly showed me about this world where the or...

    The Magician s Nephew Chronicles of Narnia, 6 , C.S LewisThe Magician s Nephew is a high fantasy novel for children by C S Lewis, published by Bodley Head in 1955 It is the sixth published of seven novels in The Chronicles of Narnia 1950 1956 The story begins in London during the summer of 1900 Two children, Digory and Polly, meet while playing in the adjacent gardens of a row of terraced houses They decide to explore the attic connecting the houses, but take the wrong door and surprise Digory s Uncle Andrew in his study Uncle Andrew tricks Polly into touching a yellow magic ring, causing her to vanish Then he explains to Digory that he has been dabbling in magic, and that the rings allow travel between one world and another He blackmails Digory into taking another yellow ring to follow wherever Polly has gone, and two green rings so that they both can return Digory finds himself transported to a sleepy woodland with an almost narcotic effect he finds Polly nearby The woodland is filled with pools Digory and Polly surmise that the wood is not really a proper world at all but a Wood between the Worlds , similar to the attic that links their rowhouses back in England, and that each pool leads to a separate universe They decide to explore a different world before returning to England, and jump into one of the nearby pools They then find themselves in a desolate aba...

    My autistic spectrum son Jonathan is fascinated by the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe He wants to know what her motivation is Why is she always so angry he asks Why does she hate Aslan Who is she like These are good questions 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 She is a little like Auntie Medusa in The Rescuers, another of Jonathan s favorite films, and she s also a little like the Sea Witch in The Little Mermaid, Madame Mim in The Sword in the Stone, and, of course, the Wicked Witch of the West 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 ...

    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 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 fi...

    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.S Lewis s Narnia collection He s in college now, and he s a very respectful young man not to mention a purist and a stickler , so there was a long, silent pause, then, Well, yes, Mom, I think you need to start with Book One Oh, bother I barely remember it, I groaned Can t we just go straight to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe It s so much exciting Another patient pause, then, Mom, I think you should read them in order He s, like, so much mature than I am.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.R.R Tolkien, but Robert Jordan and J.K 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, alon...

    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, and I really appriciate that I would recommend this book to anyone, boy or girl, old or young.3 4 14, edited to add 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 Of course this was...

    Oh gosh, how many years must it be since I last read this book, 30 or , who knows, but I zipped through it like we were the closest of friends who met every day 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 5 stars all the way I had no intention of starting this series this year or even anytime soon, but I saw the boxed set o...
