C.S. Lewis is a lovely writer and I most definitely has his vision easily through his descriptive narrative.
Jadis seemed a bit derivative, if C S Lewis had actually read any H P Lovecraft. Or maybe she just reminded me of Joss Whedon's Illyria. She was scary, no question.
This had some elements of deus ex machina such as the apple only working on Jadis in a certain way, and working a different way back in our world, but it's a children's fantasy so I'm not complaining much.
"THE FIRST WAY SCIENCE AND magic are similar according to Lewis is their ability to function as an alternative religion."
"THE SECOND WAY SCIENCE AND magic are similar according to Lewis is their encouragement of a stunning lack of skepticism."
"THE THIRD AND MOST SIGNIFICANT way science is similar to magic according to Lewis is its quest for power."
Having just finished reading West's well argued and possessive book, I reread this delightful Chronicle (I was first acquainted with Uncle Andrew in 1973). In it, as Uncle Andrew (a magician with a microscope) and the Witch (seeking to rule yet another world) seeks to oppress the children while opposing Aslan, some of Lewis's convictions from THE ABOLITION OF MAN here become this story's strong and appealing storyline.
