In the first book of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Magician's Nephew, Digory Kirke and his friend Polly Plummer enter a mysterious world with several pools that are actually portals to other worlds. Digory and Polly embark on many adventures as they enter some of these pools. I loved the book and I thought that it was one of the best books I have read. This book was also challenging to read, since there are many symbolisms and allusions located within every page. I liked the way C.S. Lewis tied this book to actual events in human history. I recommend this book to everybody, especially to those who are interested in learning more about certain literary techniques.
