The Magician’s Book is the story of one reader's long, tumultuous relationship with C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia. As a child, Laura Miller read and re-read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and its sequels countless times, and wanted nothing more than to find her own way to Narnia. In her skeptical teens, a casual reference to the Chronicles’s Christian themes left her feeling betrayed and alienated from the stories she had come to know and trust. Years later, convinced that "the first book we fall in love with shapes us every bit as much as the first person we fall in love with," Miller returns to Lewis' classic fantasies to see what mysteries Narnia still holds for adult eyes—and is captured in an entirely new way.
Let me know if you'd like to review this amazing book. It is a gift to all readers. It is as much a book about books as it is a book about The Chronicles of Narnia.
Miriam, I would love to review this. I have read almost everything Lewis wrote, starting with the Narnia books when I was a child. I re-read them as an adult and was enchanted all over again. Please send me a copy of this one!!
