The Magician's Nephew
The Magician's Nephew: The Chronicles of Narnia | C. S. Lewis
148 posts | 533 read | 6 reading | 37 to read
Illustrations in this ebook appear in vibrant full color on a full color ebook device, and in rich black and white on all other devices. Narnia . . . where Talking Beasts walk . . . where a witch waits . . . where a new world is about to be born. On a daring quest to save a life, two friends are hurled into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But then the lion Aslan's song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will be known as Narnia. And in Narnia, all things are possible. The Magicians Nephew is the first book in C.S. Lewiss The Chronicles of Narnia, a series that has become part of the canon of classic literature, drawing readers of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over fifty years. This is a stand-alone novel, but if you would like to journey back to Narnia, read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Behind #AdventRecommends door #3 is The Chronicles of Narnia series. If you want a wintery read, try the first written, The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe. If you want to see how it all began, check out The Magician‘s Nephew, my favorite in the series.

IndoorDame These editions are the ones I grew up with, and I still love the cover art so much! 1w

So good! It's true to me that this series is as iconic as Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. The underlying themes of virtue and good vs evil resonates deeply. I love Aslan.
Finding out how the story all began is so satisfying.

I found this rather interesting because as most know, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is the most popular and famous work of the Chronicles of Narnia. However, I had no idea that it wasn‘t even the first book let alone one of seven books!!

Published in 1955, this modern fantasy story depicts high fantasy in which the characters are introduced to new characters, places, and ideas. When looking at the fantasy components clearly you can see that entering a door to a new world is quite the fantasy as well as meeting characters like the chief mouse! The story connects characters through the other books in the series to make great stories as well!

This year, I‘m going to be ambitious. I‘m setting my Goodreads at 52 books, the same as 2018, but I really want to try and get through as many of my TBR as possible. So I‘m also gonna try to climb #MountTBR2019, as well as completing the #Booked2019 and #POPSUGAR2019 challenges 🙈 the TBR stack is going down this year!!

What reading challenges are you participating in?

Cortg Good luck! I‘m just sticking to GR (60) and my monthly book club picks. 11mo

laur89 Is MountTBR a challenge to read the books on your TBR pile? How do you know what to call your “mountain”? 11mo
larah17 @HOTPock3tt @Cortg @4thhouseontheleft best of luck to you all! I‘m so excited about this years reading 😁 @laur89 it is indeed! There are rules and such about what counts, it has to be books you‘ve owned pre-2019, check out https://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2018/10/mount-tbr-reading-challenge-2019.htm... if you‘re interested 😊 Bev has set out the different “mountain” sizes there! 11mo

#adventrecommends Day 4
Since my previous book was coming from a more serious side of my reading experience, I'll do something completely different today and recommend C. S. Lewis's Narnia series starting with this book.
If you haven't read it or heard about it you probably have been living under a rock.. Kidding
But seriously this world is amazing. You may be an adult or a kid, but Narnia could feel as a home for everyone.

This took me right back to my childhood!! I‘ve only read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe so starting from the beginning to see how it all started was amazing! Seeing Narnia being created and how the pieces begin to fall into place and set up for the rest of the series makes me even more excited to start the next book. 5/5⭐️

In the first installment of the Chronicles of Narnia- Digory and Polly believe themselves to be adventurers crawling between the space of their homes until they stumble upon Digory‘s Uncle Andrew and his attempt at magic. Unwillingly sucked into his experiment the children set off into another world and unknowingly bring a powerful queen back to life! In an attempt to return the queen to her world they stumble upon the birth of a new world- Narnia

JordanD All I can say was that I am left wanting to see more of Narnia and the sons of Adam and daughters of Eve that are lucky enough to come upon it 1y

So I just learned there are 2 ways to read these books, chronological order or published order. I accidentally chose chronological order. I don‘t know if that is why I just thought this book was okay. I‘ve never read these books or watched the movies.

I am reading/listening to these for #gar #greatamericanread

This one was read by Kenneth Branagh and I‘m so disappointed that he doesn‘t read any others. 😫 I‘m going to try the rest, we‘ll see.

MinDea What order are you reading them in? I am reading them in publication order. I just finished The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and have 2 more to go. 1y
Laughterhp @MinDea Chronological order. This is the first I‘ve read. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe will be next. 1y
MinDea Oh wait! I am reading them in chronological order! 😆😆😆 I liked this one. I liked seeing how Narnia and the surrounding area was created and the foreshadowing of coming events. 1y

Took a break from audio-listening for a couple of weeks. I really want to finish my #Em‘sTravelsThroughMiddleEarth with Return of the King, but now I need to finish the #NarniaTravels before I go back! Also excited that Kenneth Branagh is reading this one- I love his voice! One of the reasons I love audio listening to these on SCRIBD: this particular audio series has some really great actors reading !

Caterina This one isn't great to start with, even though it's labeled book one. It's book one chronologically, not in order of publishing, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a better one to start with. So if you don't love this one, maybe consider trying out 2y
