The Chronicles of Narnia Book #1 Review | I Think I Read The Wrong Book

Synopsis (Spoilers Ahead)

This book was a lot of fun. There are so many elements of mystery through out the book. For example in the beginning, Digory and Polly walk down a mysterious dark hallway and find Uncle Andrew deep into his study.

Then they get transported to a sleepy woodland with an almost narcotic effect and they just dive into random pools of water and see where it lands them. And it just happened to be the worst one they could of gone to. They jumped into this land where it’s abandoned ruins and ring an enchanted bell that sets free an evil queen.

This evil queen then gets transported to the human world and demands all of jewels, calling them her slaves, it’s really comical to read about fantasy characters in the modern world.

In the second half of the book, you get introduced to the chronicles and the larger story of Narnia. A land that was created by the voice of a Lion. In this second half we read about how even though Narnia was just created, there is a bigger threat in the world and that is the evil queen who wants control and it’s Digory’s mission to save the future of Narnia.

What I liked about the book:

I loved the fantasy element to it. It definitely had elements that I haven’t read about before. I also like how distinct the characters are, and just one of those books that there is never a dull moment.

What I Didn’t Like About The Book

What I didn’t like about the book is the purpose of the book. It felt like this book was a bit unnecessary as it only serves as the purpose to explain the creation story of Narnia. I also feel like there was also something missing. I felt like this book could of kept me on the edge of my seat, seeking for the next book in the series.

Will I read more books by this author?

Hell yes. I love C.S. Lewis’s writing and I now know how good of a writer he is because for the longest time I haven’t read his books.
