Reviews - What do customers think about The Horse and His Boy ?

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.
Good story features some distasteful racism  Jan 6, 2008
Two young people flee their lives in the country of Calormene with the aid of a pair of talking Narnian horses. When they learn of a plan to attack the neighboring country of Archenland, they must race the invading force in order to deliver a warning.

This is a good adventure, though not up to the standard set by "Magician's Nephew" and "Lion, Witch, Wardrobe." The most disappointing (though not surprising) aspect is the depiction of the Calormene people. They are clearly meant to represent Muslims, and C.S. Lewis denigrates every aspect of their lives: their food is terrible, their clothes are silly, they have no sense of humor, and their dark skin is not as attractive as the light skin of the Archenlanders and Narnians. It's a shame that Lewis is apparently unable or unwilling to write his Christian parable without putting down other races and faiths. But if you can look past this aspect, it's a good story.
A Journey into Lost Sonship  Dec 21, 2007
THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, the 3rd book in C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia series and the 5th one published, carries on the adventures of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy in a roundabout manner, as the four of them rule on Narnia's throne in the great castle at Cair Paravel.

This story centers around a boy named Shasta, an orphan boy raised by a Calorman fisherman from the South. For his whole life, Shasta had looked to the North, up the long rising hill, and wondered what was in the North. He felt some part of him belonged in the North. So when a Tarkaan royalty shows up at his master's house and offers to buy Shasta into slavery, Shasta decides he must run away. With the help of a talking Narnian horse named Bree (a.k.a. Breehy-hinny-brinny-hoohy-hah), he flees to the North, toward the feeling in his soul and away from the clutches of slavery.

His path converges with Aravis Tarkheena, who is running away from her forced betrothal to the ugly Grand Visier. She too has a talking Narnian horse named Hwin. Together they brave the foreboding countryside, the crowded city streets, the desert wastelands, and the war fields as they run for their freedom and fall unknowingly into secret plots for espionage and war, finally discovering who they really are through their journeys.

A Narnian novel would not be complete without an appearance of the powerful lion Aslan, and he finds his way into the story in very symbolic and physical ways. While this story pales in comparison to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the story of an orphaned boy learning the true identity of his sonship is filled with Christian symbolism that will refresh the hearts of readers. If nothing else, C.S. Lewis has such a way with simple storytelling that one's inner writing critic might just go to sleep and leave you able to enjoy the purity of the story.
