Reviews - What do customers think about The Silver Chair?

The Silver Chair  Apr 7, 2008

Fourth book printed, sixth 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 series falters here a little with a fairly uninspired story, broken down into a series of events that give the reader the sense that Lewis was getting a little weary with the universe he had created. As though bored of Narnia, he takes us away from that and all familiar characters but one, an admittedly well-realised Eustace.

Although it opens very well, despite Lewis interjecting regularly with his own poorly-disguised opinions on the world in general and certain types of schools in particular. Unfortunately once the story kicks in it feels a touch rushed and uninspired, the return of Caspian unemotive, and the silver chair of the title almost totally inconsequential. It's not an awful read, but there's little hear for adults and probably not a great deal for youngsters, although I would admittedly be guessing about that.

5/10
 
A Great Addition to Lewis' Masterpieces  Mar 18, 2008
Another dark and quest-filled story in The Chronicles of Narnia; the Silver Chair adds more depth and character to Eustace, his friend Pole, and the rest of the added characters in this installment. Though I think that parts of the journey to find the kidnapped prince seemed a bit unnecessarily prolonged, Lewis gladly relieves his readers with a memorable rescue in the conclusion.

have not read it thus far but i got it fast enough and it was in good condition
 
Lewis' Creativity and Fantastic Mind Return  Jan 3, 2008
THE SILVER CHAIR, the 5th book in C.S. Lewis' THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA series and the 4th one published, leaves behind the stories of the Pevensie children and moves instead to their cousin Eustace Clarence Scrubb (whose name fits his character as well as possible) and another social outcast at The Experiment House school. A lot has changed for the better in Eustace's character since he voyaged with King Caspian on the Dawn Treader. Everyone has noticed the change, but many of the school mockers/bullies don't see it as an improvement. When he and Jill Pole find themselves being chased by Them (the school bully squad) behind the gymnasium, they sneak up into the trees hoping that for once the gate to the outside of the school will be unlocked. Luckily for them, it is.

On the other side of the gate is Narnia and the great Lion, Aslan, waiting for them beside a river and an unimaginably high cliff in Aslan's Country. Aslan gives them a mission and 4 signs they must follow to complete it. King Caspian's son Rilian has gone missing, his wife has been murdered, the sighting of a mysterious snake is the only clue, and all who have journeyed to find and rescue him have disappeared without a trace. Eustace and Jill have no time to waste if they are going to follow Aslan's signs and rescue Rilian. Little do they know that on their journey they will encounter Marsh-wiggles, giants, ruined underground cities, dark caves, underground lakes, mysterious messages, valleys of the dead, Father Time, and a conspiracy to take over Narnia.

As quality goes, the series is so good that this installment has to go to the bottom of the list. Aside from the short opening chase scene, the action takes nearly 100 pages to develop, as much of the beginning of the book is spent in background exposition through dialogue. This, of course, moves the story along, but not with any sort of intrigue, suspense, mystery, fear, emotions, or anything remarkable as far as plot and character development go. Just when I thought the book might end up a complete flop, the story does redeem itself, though not nearly enough to join the other books in the quality department. The action picks up, the famed subtext appears (especially the thought that Aslan is able to use the children in spite of their human failings), the characters begin their transition from 2D to 3D, and Lewis' creativity and fantastic mind return. Hang in there with this one because the end does finally make the journey worth the read.

Temptation  Nov 11, 2007
A journey to Narnia brings the characters to an adventure that takes place mainly underground. Lewis delivers again with a captivating plot and adventure.

A key moment in the story takes place when the adventurers are faced with a choice; carry out their mission or take a detour to a land more amazing than anything they have ever seen before. A place beyond what the mind can imagine. In the end the choice is made and there is no turning back.
