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 Magician’s Nephew is the first book in C.S. Lewis’s 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.

Not the best quality but a good book none the less

 on 3 July 2017
By Sarah
Not the best quality book. Flimsy with a poor paper quality but does the job for our family read. I’m currently reading it to my 8 year old who would struggle with the language but enjoys the story. The first book of the series so actually tells the beginning of the story. Although it has a religious content, without the knowledge of the connections you would be oblivious of this. It was talked about at Sunday school so my children were eager to read it. My 10 year old could read it himself but it did not hold enough interest for him at the beginning. To be honest it was a slow starter to keep children engaged. But a good book by a famous author and a valuable part of my children’s collection.

This book is and excellent prequel to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

 on 1 April 2018
By D of L
I would highly recommend this particular book to anybody who is curious about having seen or read the second book in the Chronicles of Narnia (the second book being The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe). Questions that might arise from the second book are dealt with in this prequel and a very plausible manner indeed. The Magician’s Nephew will explain the history and the very beginnings of Narnia, The Witch, Aslan, the elderly professor (and the role he played in past events), the wardrobe & the lamppost in Narnia itself… This book also covers how the sons of Adam and daughters of Eve ended up being so interwoven within this other world too.

A nostalgic trip to the creation of Narnia

 on 27 March 2018
By GCLima
I had never read this title and for me the Narnia series started with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. That’s why when I found The Magician’s Nephew I had to read it! It was a nostalgic trip back to Narnia however I could not give it five stars because it does not quite measure up to the remaining Narnia books. It is difficult for me to pinpoint it but The Magician’s Nephew pleasant tale feels like a sketch, an idea not quite fully developed. Still it is wonderful to see the seeds of an idea germinating into what became one of the great classics of English juvenile literature!

The real first Narnia book

 on 12 July 2017
By Dave Bloomer
I never knew that there was a book preceding the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for years. When I did I always meant to reads it but never got around to it; now I have and I must say its a decent read. As with a lot of children’s books it would have been better reading it as a child, but as an adult it’s a nice story. The religious overtones are there (this is C.S Lewis after all) but it doesn’t hamper he story. Overall a nice little read.

4 CD set of "The Magician’s Nephew" by C. S. Lewis

 on 21 September 2015
By Mr. J. P. Henstock
This CD is an unabridged reading of The Magicians Nephew by C.S. Lewis. It is an excellent production, and listening it is as good as reading the book. We hear how the two late Victorian children, Digory and Polly, make friends and explore the attics of their houses – how they meet Digory’s nasty uncle Andrew, and how he tricks them into travelling to another universe that leads, in turn, to the dead world of Charn. We hear how the evil queen of that world is awakened and how the children bring her to late Victorian London. We hear about the mayhem she causes and what happens to Uncle Andrew! We hear how the children, Uncle Andrew, the evil queen, and a Cabby end up in the magical world of Narnia, that is being created by the great lion Aslan. We hear of the children going on a quest – a quest that will have big consequences. And we hear what happens as a result. There are serious parts and funny parts but above all it is a very meaningful story. This is a really excellent 4 CD set.

The book arrived promptly and although second hand was in good condition. I bought this book after seeing ‘A Song For Jenny’ a 7/7 drama based on a book by Jenny’s mother Julie Nicholson about her daughters tragic death. It was the book that Jenny was reading on her fateful last journey and was eventually returned to Julie and I’m sure it meant a great deal to her. I had not heard of the Magician’s Nephew which is a prequel to The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, although it was the 6th book that CS Lewis wrote in the Chronicals of Narnia series. It explains several mysteries including why the children could enter Narnia via the wardrobe. It is a book with themes about other worlds, good and evil and why ‘Adam’s children’ were responsible for bringing evil into Narnia, which is why they needed to atone by helping to protect Narnia from the evil witch Jadis. If you have read (or seen the film) The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe it will enchance your understanding of the story.

Fantastic, even in published order

 on 14 September 2015
By Matthew Atkinson
Fantastic read. I am reading the series in published order, not reading order. Although i think reading the books in C.S Lewis recommended reading order would be good due to the fact that all the books linked to each other and follow on from each other. However, saying that. Reading the books in published order hasn’t made me confused with goings on in the books. It has been quite good reading about past events later in the series and linking all the books together. This was the second to last book for me to read, even though it has the book 1 on the amazon book order.

Didn’t even know there was a prequel!

 on 20 January 2016
By Andy C.
Read it as an adult who had read The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe donkey’s years ago. I wasn’t even aware this book had been written and was curious to know about how it all started as it was billed as a prequel, I happened to spot it in one of Amazon’s sales, so thought I’d give it a try. Enjoyed it but at times I felt it was a bit too close to the Genesis book in the bible. It would be interesting to know if children enjoyed it.

A Nice Prelude

 on 14 March 2013
By Trilliane
Purchased as my son has gotten into audio books and loves The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, it seemed quite natural to start at the beginning with the creation of Narnia and the introduction of the great Aslan.

A wonderful book

 on 8 April 2014
By barry waterfield
From the front cover right the way through to the back this was a fantastic read and it helped to fill in the foundations of ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. ‘ The concept of different worlds in different pools is wonderfully original and the introduction of evil into a perfect world setting well contrived. The illustrations are excellent. C.S. Lewis was a gifted man who knew how to present his case. I won’t spoil it for you by recanting the plot, suffice to say, it has everything, magic, excitement,good and evil,and a very interesting ending. An Aslan story worthy of the name.
