Lewis to be read first, this enchanting prequel, with its story of time travel, sorcery, and magic rings, is essential reading for anyone who wants to learn the backstory to the biggest movie release of the year.

Some take place in vast fields, where the forces of light and darkness clash. But other battles occur within the small chambers of the heart and are equally decisive.
Journeys to the ends of the world, fantastic creatures, betrayals, heroic deeds, and friendships won and lost all come together in an unforgettable world of magic. So let the adventures begin.

Where it all began

Where does The Magician's Nephew: The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 6 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Magician's Nephew is one of the best narrated novels I have listened to so far. Kenneth Brannagh does a great job especially with the Cockney accent of the cab driver.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The cabbie is my favourite character with the Cockney accent and his rags to riches story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene where the witch tries to tempt Diggory into taking the Apple for himself is my favourite scene, as Diggory has to overcome his fears and his selfish nature to not give into temptation and to do the right thing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The temptation scene again and when Strwberry was given wings and renames Fledge. They are only a couple of the moments that moved me in this story.

Any additional comments?

This is where it all began so if you rereading this series start with this book first and read in chronological order instead of the publishing order.
