the book was good, but it didn't stack up to the other Chronicals of Narnia at all.

Review 2 for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Magician's Nephew, Softcover
Amazingly, I did not begin reading The Chronicles Of Narnia until ten years following my conversion at age nineteen. I count THE GREAT DIVORCE, MERE CHRISTIANITY, and THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS among my most favored books, and my wife purchased this book for me as an anniversary gift with the idea to buy successive volumes in the series on following anniversaries.I was completely entranced by Narnia, particularly the great lion king Aslan. I read it extremely rapidly and was disappointed when it was through. Very pithy and witty, as is customary for C.S. Lewis; he aroused my hunger to experience heaven. I eagerly anticipate reading the rest of the series.
