Prince Caspian The Four Pevensies Help Caspian Battle Miraz And Ascend His Rightful ThroneNARNIA The Land Between The Lamp Post And The Castle Of Cair Paravel, Where Animals Talk, Where Magical Things Happen And Where The Adventure BeginsPeter, Susan, Edmund, And Lucy Are Returning To Boarding School When They Are Summoned From The Dreary Train Station By Susan S Own Magic Horn To Return To The Land Of Narnia The Land Where They Had Ruled As Kings And Queens And Where Their Help Is Desperately Needed Ahhh I just love these books so much They make you feel like you are watching a movie in your head while you are reading every word If that makes any sense lol I love the little bits of humor that C.S Lewis through in every once and a while like this quote, That s the worst of girls, said Edmund to Peter and the Dwarf They never can carry a map in their heads That s because our heads have something inside them, said Lucy I don t know why I love that quote so much, but I do Ahhh I just love these books so much They make you feel like you are watching a movie in your head while you are reading every word If that makes any sense lol I love the little bits of humor that C.S Lewis through in every once and a while like this quote, That s the worst of girls, said Edmund to Peter and the Dwarf They never can carry a map in their heads That s because our heads have something inside them, said Lucy I don t know why I love that quote so much, but I do p I definitely recommend this series and of course, the movies are amazing as well I really hope that they make a movie for the Silver Chair soon Now onto the Voyage of the Dawn Treader next D 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 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 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 littlepresent 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 Hamlet with badgers. You doubt your value Don t run from who you are 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 returning to Narnia for they are only truly themselves when they are with Aslan Feeling like the voice she liked best in all the world was calling her name And when they suddenly find themselves thrust back into Narnia, they discover one very, very important thing You doubt your value Don t run from who you are 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 returning to Narnia for they are only truly themselves when they are with Aslan Feeling like the voice she liked best in all the world was calling her name And when they suddenly find themselves thrust back into Narnia, they discover one very, very important thing Things never happen the same way twice The siblings soon realize that time moves far differently 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 right the world 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 themThat s the worst of girls, said Edmund to Peter and the Dwarf They never can carry a map in their heads That s because our heads have something inside them, said Lucy 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 It was a sign of the times.And while I really enjoyed catching up with Lucy and co., I was hugely disappointed 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 I missed the side characters I fell in love with.Audiobook CommentsRead by Lynn Redgrave and it was rather well done Enjoyable to listen to YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads Happy Reading
