The Magician’s Nephiew Review

I finished the first Narnia book, The Magician’s Nephew, and wow I am disappointed. The movies are bad ass but that is because they are visually and the Christian undertone isn’t too much shoved down your throat. But in the Magician’s Nephew, C. S. Lewis straight up steals stories from the Bible to create this boring, confusing, and impossible story. As much as Genesis doesn’t make sense in the real world, it just as much doesn’t in this story. Was it needed to tell me how Narnia was created?? Because it totally killed it for me. And then he goes ahead and steals a scene from the Adam and Eve story with the apple which I don’t understand. Why create an apple no one can eat?? Why tempt people to do bad things and then when they do you shun them? That’s fucked up.

So anyways I’m gonna rate this book:

Creativity: 1/5
Story: 2/5
Shortness: 4/5

All in all, don’t read this book unless you want to read the whole series just to say you did because this sure as hell isn’t a good book and I’m assuming the rest won’t be either. I’ll rate the next one once I’m done with it.
