    One year has passed since Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy went to Narnia through an old Wardrobe and met the bad white witch and the righteous lion. Now they are sitting on a seat at a railway station with trunks and playboxes piled up round them on their way to school.

    But Narnia needs them back.

    More precisely PRINCE CASPIAN, the true king of Narnia needs them back.

    And the children are ready for a new adventure in the land that thousand - years ago they used to be Kings and Queens themselves.

    More precisely PRINCE CASPIAN, the true king of Narnia needs them back.

    And the children are ready for a new adventure in the land that thousand - years ago they used to be Kings and Queens themselves.

    Because time passes at different speeds in Narnia.

    And now the landscape has changed and the men are ruling the fairytale land. The talking animals and the mythical creatures are hiding trying to survive. Everyone remembers Narnia's golden age and everyone is hoping that a just King will appear and will bring prosperity and safety again to the rightful population of Narnia.

    There two stories in this book that mingle: The story of the prince Caspian and how he claims this throne and the story of the four children’s return to Narnia. It may look confusing when you read it, but everything will make sense after a certain point in the book.

    Sometimes The Chronicles of Narnia remind me the Neverending Story.

    Prince Caspian (originally published as Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia) is a high fantasy novel for children by C. S. Lewis, published by Geoffrey Bles in 1951. It was the second published of seven novels in The Chronicles of Narnia (1950–1956), and Lewis had finished writing it in 1949, before the first book was out. It is volume four in recent editions of the series, sequenced according to Narnia history. Like the others, it was illustrated by Pauline Baynes and her work has been retained in many later editions. Prince Caspian features "return to Narnia" by the four Pevensie children of the first novel, about a year later in England but 1300 years later in Narnia. It is the only book of The Chronicles with men dominating Narnia. The talking animals and mythical beings are oppressed, and some may be endangered. The English siblings are legendary Kings and Queens of Narnia and are magically recalled once again as children by the refugee Prince Caspian.

    I read this aloud to my older boy, age 6.

    It's a good book, and he enjoyed it, but didn't ring the bell in the same way Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe did. I think the biggest reason for this, was that it wasn't as accessible to him.

    The first issue was the non-linear story. Which has the potential to confuse. Later, Lewis splits the party in a way that divides the action in the story.

    But the biggest issue is that the characters lapse into archaic, courtly English when the a bunch of the people are

    It's a good book, and he enjoyed it, but didn't ring the bell in the same way Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe did. I think the biggest reason for this, was that it wasn't as accessible to him.

    The first issue was the non-linear story. Which has the potential to confuse. Later, Lewis splits the party in a way that divides the action in the story.

    But the biggest issue is that the characters lapse into archaic, courtly English when the a bunch of the people are talking at the end of the book. (Because the siblings used to be kings and queens, and they're talking with the nobility of the Telemarines.)

    It's not just unfamiliar language to children. It's unfamiliar and archaic language. (Doubly archaic now, as Lewis wrote these 50 years ago.) My boy couldn't follow it at all, as there were 2-4 unfamiliar terms used in every sentence, and context can only stretch so far.) Because of that, Oot couldn't understand whole sections of the climax of the book, when the Telmarines were talking among themselves, and planning on betraying their king. (A vital plot point he couldn't get because it was only made explicit in this dialogue.)

    As a result, I had to skim, skip, or summarize big chunks of the book so he could get it. Maybe in a year or two, he would have been fine. (Also, keep in mind that my boy is extremely vocabulary. We've been reading to him since he was six months old. Results with your own child may vary.)

    Sexism a little more present here, but not oppressive or malicious. Still, you can't deny that the boys go off to duel and do battle stuff, while the girls hang out with Aslan and go wake the trees.

    This book had better characters that the first book of the series. Nikabrik is a great example of a good guy gone bad. Trumpkin and Trufflehunter are great as well.

    But Reepicheep is the real star here. Perhaps the best character in all of Narnia, excepting Aslan himself.

    Lastly, and mostly as a side note, Lewis really knocked it out of the park in terms of names. Nikabrik is a great name for a venomous black dwarf. Glenstorm the proud centaur. Wimbleweather the dim but kind giant.

    And Reepicheep, of course. I don't know if a name has ever fit a character better than "Reepicheep" does....

    I'm mad at myself because I wanted to read the first of the Narnia series before reading this one for class, but I didn't quite make it.

    I loved this story because I love Lucy and Aslan and Caspian, but there were a lot of side characters who I didn't care much about and the villain in this book wasn't so interesting. Nevertheless, a muuuuch easier read than Lord of the Rings!!

    The Pevensie siblings (Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy) spent the last year daydreaming about Narnia. Despite the horrors of the White Witch, but they constantly think about

    for they are only truly themselves when they are with Aslan.

    The siblings soon realize that

    in Narnia than it does in the real world. A thousand years have passed and everyone they once knew have long since passed. It's up to them to put the one, true prince on Narnia's throne and

    that has gone so far astray.

    I did appreciate how C. S. Lewis wrote his female characters with a bit of spunk and sass in them:

    Though, I did notice that the gals never got to do any sword-fighting and did spend a lot of time being protected by their brothers. Ah well.

    And while I really enjoyed catching up with Lucy and co.,

    to learn about the time-jump. I just couldn't believe that C. S. Lewis wrote off the Beaver family and Mr. Tumnus so quickly. We still have Aslan but

    Read by Lynn Redgrave and it was rather well done. Enjoyable to listen to!

    I remembered this novel in the Narnia chronicles. That said it was still enjoyable and a wild ride from railway station to Cair Paravel to King Miraz’s castle to the Fords of Beruna to Aslan’s Howe to a railway station. Along the way we meet some new characters in the form of questionable dwarves (rightly so in my opinion), loyal badgers, chattering squirrels and courtly mice, oh and dozy giants.

    An enjoyable novel that gives yet more insight into the Narnian world and reinforces the messages of understanding and tolerance, always a good thing.

    Again it has to be 4⭐️ without doubt.

    Admittedly Prince Caspian was boring at first for I didn't like the symbolic meaning of the whole book. It was hard to read and that incredible ending nearly shut me out from enjoying, it's abrupt and unsatisfied at all. Although I quie liked the movie, the book is so much different. The pace is excruciatingly slow. I didn't like the over-descriptive narration talking about everything including flowers, sky, and trees.

    The first part of this book was acceptable, especially when Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy comes back to Narnia, the vibes of the book is nearly the same as the previous one. But around the middle, the story was a downfall, there're so many subtle meanings between the pages, it gave me such a headache that I had to think about it many times.

    However, this book isn't awful. It has the enjoyable parts to keep my attention until the last page. Prince Caspian is as intriguing as always, so much alike his character in the movie.
