How Caspian and his army of talking beasts conquered the Telemarines unfolds in Book Four of the Chronicles of Narnia.

Publishers Description

On cassette tape, the abridged audiobook of Prince Caspian--the fourth volume in the classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia--is performed by Claire Bloom.

The Pevensie siblings travel back to Narnia to help a prince denied his rightful throne as he gathers an army in a desperate attempt to rid his land of a false king. But in the end, it is a battle of honor between two men alone that will decide the fate of an entire world.

Enter a world where animals talk Prince Caspian is the fourth book in C. S. Lewis's classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers of all ages into its magical lands for over sixty years.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prince Caspian?

A favorite childhood adventure novel  Apr 4, 2010
There is a lot made of the Christian allegory by some of the reviewers. And sure, it is there. But this is a book that can (was) enjoyed by a child ignorant of the parallels to Christ. The moral themes of fair play and the like come through regardless. And the adventure is rousing.

The edition shown here is nice in that it is a bit more durable and this is a book that will be reread. In addition, the original illustrations are great. So, if you are willing to spend a little more buy this one. But if that's an objection, just buy any edition (used books are fine) or even get it from the library. And have your kids read it!
would i read this book again  Mar 22, 2010
the only time i would read this again is when im in hell and there are no other entertainment. the onley thing worse then this book is the the adventures of the bull crap pigs. oohhhhhh fun book sorry ive just wet myselve with bordem.
return to Narnia with action  Mar 10, 2010
In this the fourth book in the Chronicles of Narnia, the four children from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe return to the magical land of Narnia to find things greatly changed from the way they left them. A young king is on the run from his uncle who seeks to usurp the throne and the four children, who are kings and queens of Narnia themselves must battle a new foe and restore Old Narnia. The Christian allegory is quite strong in this book as it is with others. I found it a joy myself to return to Narnia after some time away. The new characters are quite fun. This story is better than the book previous (A Horse and His Boy) with good action and progresses the history of Narnia. I enjoyed this one enough to jump straight into the next one, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I was reading the Kindle version and was very pleased to see that the illustrations were included and of good quality. Recommended.
deja vu all over again  Mar 4, 2010
I enjoy most of the Narnia series, but this one leaves me cold. The impression I get is that Lewis wanted to repeat the success of LION/WITCH, but hadn't figured out how to scale up the story yet. The problems?

(1) LION/WITCH had a tyrant, so this book has a tyrant, too. So there's another civil war. Repetition, as I said.

(2) The rebels summon the kids from LION/WITCH to help, but why? The kids have no special abilities, like the hobbits. They don't bring twentieth-century technology with them. They're good at horseback riding and archery, but a typical Narnia soldier can do that as well. Basically they are there for propaganda purposes, to awe the Narnians, but that's not heroic, and so Lewis never admits that. Instead they have to fight in battles and risk getting killed.

(3) To keep the kids from reaching the rebels and finishing the story, Lewis has Aslan appear and play hide-and-seek. Supposedly it's to test their faith, but why would Aslan think it needs testing at this point, particularly when lives are at stake elsewhere?

(4) Eventually they reach the rebels and we get another war. But this time there's no heroic scene comparable to Aslan's self-sacrifice in LION/WITCH, so it's a second-rate repetition.

(5) Most of the Narnia stories have a moral, but I don't see one here. That fighting is good?

Most of the good stuff is in the last chapter when Aslan is trying to arrange peace. After revealing that Caspian had evil ancestors, he tells the boy that he is only responsible for his own acts. He lectures a wounded rebel on accepting adversity, then gives up and heals him anyway. He praises a man on the losing side for his bravery and advises the other rebels to follow him as they go into exile. And there's the poignant revelation when Peter and Susan learn that they can never come back. But the rest of the novel is pretty much a loss.
