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