Review: The Magician's Nephew (The Chronicles of Narnia (Publication Order) #6)

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

This story is so much better and makes much more sent when this book is read first in the series. Rather than telling the story (the Chronicles of Narnia) as a flashback, it is linear and makes sense. Good call by whomever made the decision to reorder the books. Read full review

His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year.
