REVIEW OF: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis
Reviewed by: Jake
Have you ever had a crazy uncle send you to another world? That is what happens in C.S. Lewis’ The Magician’s Nephew to a young boy from London named Digory. When Digory goes on an adventure with his friend Polly into different worlds, he meets the evil Empress of Charn who wants to rule everything, and she makes Digory’s uncle her slave. Then he and the evil empress go to Narnia using magic rings. In Narnia, Digory meets Aslan, the Lion who created Narnia, and Fledge, a talking horse with wings. The Empress tries to take over Narnia, but Aslan wants peace.
I loved this novel; part of the reason I felt this way was due to the fact that it relates to the Bible. My favorite scene was when Polly vanished; it made me wonder what would happen next. I didn’t like Digory’s uncle and how cold-hearted he was. He experiments on his own nephew! My favorite character was definitely Aslan because he reminds me of Jesus.
I would recommend The Magician’s Nephew to anyone who is 10 and up and loves to read a brilliantly written book for fun. The author, C.S. Lewis, is very descriptive which make it wonderful to read.
