first of all, i love this book..!

My summary:

the story is about what happened when a boy meet a girl.. digory, and polly..a boy who really like to take risks and polly who was quite an adventurous, but very limited, which means; a girl i s always a cautious being, right? they became very good friends, and like fooling around, pretending that every single thing happened or they found, was actually related to something magical or mystery..and until one day the end up which started the biggest step of human invading to other world (yeah, that's human obviously..)..digory had an uncle, the magician...he sent polly away with a magic ring (with a trick!) and force digory to fetch polly..unwilling, but polly is his good friend, he determined to go to Charn, woke up Jadis, and the conflict began..and Jadis became the enemy of Narnia when it was found like in less than 7hours..

My review:

well, i like it very much as i think mr. lewis is a great story teller..when i read the story, it is like he is telling me what is actually happened there.. he did an excellent job with developing the characters, which made them really interesting and alive..they're written so well, that i was absorbed into the book.. (well, there's magic everywhere!). Aslan was, a great and wiser person (as if he is person no matter whatever, how big or small he/she is...right?). it is here that Digory and Polly meet Aslan for the first time and Aslan begins the wonderful song of creation which brings about the dawn of the first day in Narnia..every plants and animals that heard Aslan song became alive and they can talk or communicated among was warm, it was so awesome..and every animals shocked when they found out they can talk! and the first joke was made! ha! i think everyone have read this.. but if you not, then you should read this, and you will discover how Jadis thinks she can be the Queen of Narnia, how and old man and her wife from our world became the first king and queen of Narnia, how digory was tempted to steal the apple of life for himself..i can't even stop reading the adventure in the story..

What i think?

well, i realized something in the end, human always have good in them, no matter how bad they can be or had been..digory realized it himself after all.. it is so simple to be frank and open with people when we put it into kid's life, when it is actually always grown ups who make a lot of mistakes..this story give me more than a makes me realizes i always want to be a kid..other than that, it makes me want to be a better person; who did wrong, but always accepted the guilty in the end and try to make things better again..

Rating: 4.5/5


  1. haha! polly and digory..haha..
    i read this book before but after a few pages i just couldnt continue my reading. Right after jadis is woken up i stop...meb i'm just not into all the magic thingy yet...
    the last book bout magic that i read is harry potter and the deadly hollow. and it's awesome!! i still have The Lord of the Ring trilogy in my collection but due to the difficulties to understanding the ancient english used by tolkien...maybe i just go through the films first...haha!

    werr darlyn...have u read the time traveler's wife? it's magic!!!!

  2. @ cj'alhafiz = i read all harry potter potter series a few times..can't get tired of the books..i love re-read books anyway..harry potter is truly is way beyond awesomeness..hehe..and i love trilogy/series btw.

    many friends suggested that, but have to admit new books are hard to find in bintulu, once i fly back to kl or my home then i'l buy new books..

    kind of sad isn't it?

  3. yup....kind of..
    i can consider that we're on the same boat...coz it's hard for me to find books in kota bharu also..coz there's only one bookstores here.. n most of the books that i really want to have are not in stock..
