Reviews of The Magician’s Nephew by CS Lewis
Lewis really writes an engaging fantasy tale that is surprising full of beautiful descriptions rather than nonstop action. I appreciate the world building in the book which I found pretty detailed for a children’s book. I also like that I don’t really know some of the characters well, but feel like the less important ones are gonna be showing up later on down the road. (by Justin, goodreads.com)
