Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #4)Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia by C.S. Lewis


This is the fourth book in The Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. Like the others, I really enjoyed this book. Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are all transported back to Narnia, where Prince Caspian is on the run as his tyrant uncle has claimed Caspian's throne and wants to kill him to ensure he isn't rightfully restored. The children discover that the magic has left Narnia hundreds of years before, when they originally left, and that the place is not safe for Old Narnian's. They must fight, alongside Aslan, to restore Narnia to it's former glory and to see Caspian put on the throne.

C.S. Lewis has created such a magical world, and I love going there in his books. I am so happy that my wife introduced me to this great series. He is engaging and fun, and I wish I lived in Narnia, who wouldn't. I like all four children, they are noble and brave, out to fight the evil that ensnares the world. Their dwarf companion ,Trumpkin. He was a great character, I enjoyed watching him develop. He makes me laugh throughout the book.

We see castles, evil men, dwarfs, giants, humans, lions, mice, badgers, the White Witch and river gods, just to name a few. This is a great children's fantasy book that adults can enjoy. It is fun, gripping and well worth reading. The end was a bit sad, with the adventure ending for some characters, but the very last line made me laugh.

  2. I really must get back to rereading the series. I have the collected works but sort of fizzled out at some point.
