Another Great Read Nov 22, 2009
In this fourth book of The Chronicles of Narnia, things are not going well. The King and his wife have both died, and their heir, Prince Caspian, is being raised by his uncle, Miraz. Miraz takes the throne and declares himself King. Caspian escapes and finds his way to Narnia.
Miraz never believed in any of the old tales about Narnia, talking animals, dwarves or even Aslan. Caspian does, and is delighted to encounter all of these characters when he arrives in Narnia. The dwarves and animals all pledge their loyalty to Caspian, but Miraz is determined to put an end to him once and for all. He brings an army and the battle for control of the kingdom begins.
Outnumbered, things are not going well for Caspian and his forces. Fearing defeat, he blows the magic horn left behind by Susan when she, Peter, Edmund and Lucy reigned the land. Although it was a thousand years ago, the tales of their heroics and kind governance remain part of the fabric of Narnia. The horn is supposed to bring the four to the aid of whomever blows it. Desparate, Caspian does just that.
Back in England, the four children are in a train station, ready to journey back to their respective schools after holiday. To them, only a year has passed since their time in Narnia. But when the horn sounds, they are transported back, only to find that little remained that they recognized. They met up with a dwarf from the Caspian army, and he took them to meet Caspian. There, they fight at his side with the help of Aslan who awakens the old magic of the land and Mariz and his army are defeated. Caspian will be King Caspian and rule Narnia as it's rightful ruler.
This was another enjoyable journey back to the land of Narnia. This book is recommended for young readers, and for parents who wish to share the adventure with their children, and for lovers of fantasy series.
The Second Adventure in Narnia Jan 21, 2009
My journey through Narnia continued with this second novel in the series. I thoroughly enjoyed Prince Caspian and found it to be an even better book than The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Part of that may stem from the fact that this story had less to do with discovering Narnia and more about the magic and events taking place there. Another wonderful book and I look forward to reading the next when I come to it.
Return to Narnia...and not a moment too soon Dec 2, 2008
PRINCE CASPIAN sees the four Pevensie children whisked away to the magical realm of Narnia where the four of them reigned as kings and queens for many years. Though only a year later for them, many eons have passed since the hunting of the White Stag at the end of the previous book.
Cair Paravel is now in ruins and disrepair. The entire island in which it sits is deserted and thought by the inhabitants of Narnia to be haunted. Therefore none of the now-ruling class of Narnians -- Telmarines, humans originally from our world -- venture there unless to execute some criminal, rebel, or perpetuator of the old myths of four human children enthroned at Cair Paravel and a magical, mystical Lion named Aslan.
And such was the case when our four heroes rescued a dwarf named Trumpkin from the hands of his Telmarine captors. Trumpkin then relates the exciting tale of Prince Caspian the rightful heir to the throne of Narnia and a classic tale of a jealous uncle, usurped authority, impending doom, and the possible return of the golden age of Narnia.
PRINCE CASPIAN is every bit as enjoyable and addictive as THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE. Each page is as entertaining and captivating as the one before. And what so many people miss when reading these books is C.S. Lewis not only weaved some wonderful children's yarns but also threw in some hard-core theology and did so in such a way that even a child could understand.
Prince Caspian Oct 6, 2008
"Prince Caspian" is very good and very exciting. You find yourself wishing you could travel to Narnia! Near the end there is so much strange magic happening it's kind of ridiculous, but it's okay, because all of it is for good. It's wonderful when Caspian's childhood nurse is reunited with him. There are so many different moods in this small book: happiness, anger, sadness, fright, and bravery. You see different beliefs in this book: belief and disbelief in the days of Old Narnia. Then there are the Telmarines, who seem to believe in the days of Old Narnia, but they don't want to. As Prince Caspian is delivered the shocking news that King Miraz will probably kill him so that he is no longer heir to the throne, Cornelius already has a plan in his mind to keep the prince from danger. You soon find out what has happened to Queen Susan's horn; Doctor Cornelius had found it after years of magic spells and terrors. He hands it to Caspian. "That," said Doctor Cornelius, "is the greatest and most sacred treasure of Narnia. Many terrors I endured, many spells did I utter, to find it, when I was still young. It is the magic horn of Queen Susan herself which she left behind her when she vanished from Narnia at the end of the Golden Age. It is said that whoever blows it shall have strange help--no one can say how strange. It may have power to call Queen Lucy and King Edmund, and Queen Susan and the High King Peter back from the past and they will set all to rights. It may be that it will call up Aslan himself. Take it, King Caspian: but do not use it except at your greatest need." It turned out the horn had the power to call back both the Kings and Queens of Old and Aslan. I very much recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Narnia. If you are a fan of "Lord of the Rings", you will like the Narnia books.
