Reviews - What do customers think about The Horse and His Boy (Radio Theatre)?
Beautiful and Touching Nov 30, 2008
This is an exciting story with such a beautiful picture of the theology that Lewis held dear. This book is a masterpiece and may be the finest work in the Narnia novels. Reading this out loud to my daughter nearly brought me to tears at times. This is a great, great book.
Amazing! Jul 5, 2008
"The Horse and His Boy" is my favorite book in the Narnia series out of the first four books (that's how far I've gotten so far). Highly recommended!
Not Quite What I Expected Jul 4, 2008
The Horse and His Boy is a great adventure, but is different from the other Narnian tales. Even though it is set during the time when Peter, Susan, Lucy, and Edmund is in Narnia ruling, it is not really geared towards them.
The horse's name is Bree, and the boy name is Shasta. They run away from their masters to live free in the north. Shasta and Bree do have someone join them on their journey along with another talking horse, but the girl doesn't really like Shasta. Shasta proves in the end to be a braver person, a more selfless person from everyone else. I liked Shasta from the very start, and I was glad to see him become something more than he thought he was.
This is a book of travel and adventure, much like most of the Narnia books. It is good to read about familiar characters. It's like you feel connected to them because you read about them in other books.
Another C.S. Lewis book I immensely enjoyed.
The Horse and His Boy Apr 7, 2008
Fifth book printed, third book chronologically.
I began re-reading the Narnia series after coming across a beautiful boxed set of all seven novels. Mainly this was out of nostalgia, as these were favourites when I was young, and I was interested to see how they held up as adults. I found them all to be written very clearly with provocative descriptive prose, and narrative that often draws the reader immediately into the story.
"The Horse and His Boy" stands out from the rest of the series, having little or nothing to do with any of the other characters. The great Aslan makes a few appearances, and his scarcity accentuates the presence that Lewis no doubt felt strongly in his heart. As a total atheist and condemner of religious analogies, even I felt a touch of wonder at each of his appearance!
The story is sound despite being removed from the over-arcing story of the Chronicles. The main character and his companion horse are well drawn and interesting. The features of the countries outside Narnia are bright and interesting, particularly if you've read the other books in the series. The book manages to carry its own weight, which some of the sequels to "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" fail to do. An achievement, and worth picking up!
A Great Side Story Mar 19, 2008
Though the story in The Horse and His Boy is almost of its own, it is still a worthy classic of the Narnian tales. Involving the Pevensie children and a newcomer, Lewis shows his brilliance in telling stories with great detail. At times, however, I found that some of his narrative contained racial material, and nowadays would be found quite offensive. Read with caution.
