NARNIA…where the woods are thick and cold, where Talking Beasts are called to life…a new world where the adventure begins.
Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory’s Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to…somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion’s song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis before they finally return home. – Goodreads
My Rating: 5/5
This is a story of creation and hope. I haven’t read this series since I was a child so I was surprised to find myself drawn into the story as much I had been growing up.
Polly and Digory are forced to travel to new worlds by Digor’s uncle, but they find themselves exploring in wonder. My own childish wonder dove at the opportunity to explore with them.
This story (and series) is a fantasy classic and shaped my childhood imagination – something I would be boring without as a adult. There are a few issues that come through which are certainly from a dated point of view on C. S. Lewis’ part, but if you ignore them and focus on the story itself, you cannot deny the incredible invention of it.
