Prince Caspian (The Chronicles of Narnia #4) by C.S. Lewis

prince caspian

4 out of 5

official blurb
The four Pevensies help Caspian battle Miraz and ascend his rightful throne. Narnia… the land between the lamp-post and the castle of Cair Paravel, where animals talk, where magical things happen… and where adventure begins. Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan’s own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia—the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.

my blurb!
The siblings are back in Narnia after being summoned mysteriously.

what i liked
I really liked this book! This is the kind of book I was expecting when I started this series!
MAJOR shout out to Edmond, who in my mind is now the VIP of this series.  I know, I know, I hated him in LWW but he has redeemed himself greatly in my eyes.  And let me tell you, that rarely happens for me. Once I dislike a character, I’m committed to the act.  So props to Clive for some good writing.
I really liked the addition of Caspian- I loved seeing the siblings in Narnia again.

what i didn't like
The end of this book. Hmmmm.  Part of it was just a plot point that I didn’t appreciate.  If you’ve read it, you know that I’m talking about.  Rude, Clive! Rude!
The other aspect was that there was this super confusing greek/roman god section that had me so lost.  Upon researching, I realize that to the kids of the era, this would have made sense.  To 30 yr old, college educated me, it made little to no sense.

Overall, this book made me happy to be reading this series at all!  Which was a good feeling because after finishing THAHB, I was ready to quit this series.  Onto book #5!
