David’s #38 – The Magician’s Nephew By C.S. Lewis 

The fact that I have never read the Chronicles of Narnia is nearly blasphemous in my family.  I have spent Christmas in C.S. Lewis’ home, “The Kilns”, in Oxford and my mother was the warden for nearly a year.  I seldom read fiction but through the encouragement of my amazing girlfriend I am embarking on the journey to read through the series.

The Magicians Nephew is labeled by the publishers as book #1 in the series but it was written later than the original books, although it takes place earlier.  The reading order is a topic of debate amongst avid Lewis-ites.

Having read, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, or more accurately, having had it read to me as a child, and having seen the movie(s) I was already familiar with Narnia, which I think made the book a little bit more fun.  It is all about the creation of Narnia and as it unfolds you catch glimpses of what is to come: the Lamp post sprouting from the earth, the white witch, and even how the Wardrobe came into existence.

It is very easy to read, as it was written for a much younger audience.  As Lewis tells the story, and it does feel very much like he is telling, not writing, he paints incredible pictures of places, characters, and their experiences.  I am already looking forward to the next book.
