Another book finished: The Magician’s Nephew

January 31, 2011 at 10:35 pm (reading)

So I made a goal to read all of the books on the BBC’s 100 Books list… and I finished another one last night!! The Magician’s Nephew, by C.S. Lewis.

I have to say, I disagree with my sister in law, husband, and Bethany on the order the Chronicles of Narnia should be read in. I agree with Lewis on this one, and I think Magician’s Nephew should be read first. It’s the history of Narnia!! It just makes more sense that way!!

Ah, well. Also, enjoyed this one more than Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I was surprised about that! I really liked/admire Lewis’s ability to recreate Scripture almost word for word, yet you wouldn’t immediately recognize it as a Biblical situation unless you’re looking for it. I am just so intrigued by that – Biblical themes are so prevalent, yet we rarely discuss them.
