Prince Caspian -
While standing on a British railway station, awaiting their train to school after the summer holidays, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie are magically whisked away to a beach near an old and ruined castle. They come to realise the ruin is Cair Paravel, where they once ruled as the Kings and Queens of Narnia, and discover the treasure vault. Although only a year has passed in England, many centuries have passed in Narnia.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

My Review-


   I read the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and finished it in the nick of time! This was book was about the four Pevensie children (Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy) Making their journey back to Narnia, to help Prince Caspian reclaim his thrown over the evil Telmarine invaders.

   I picked this book because I had enjoyed the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I have rated this book a four out of ten, for these reasons.

   C.S Lewis created a very old and magical atmosphere, which was communicated through language, creatures and speech. Also, the characters were very loveable, like the Bulgy bears and Trumpkin the dwarf. They way C.S Lewis communicated the four children and Aslan was very true to the last book, which I feel is important, otherwise it would feel like totally different people. He was used ideas that others could relate to, like when the four children played on the beach, but when they put on their shoes and socks, their feet felt heavy and humid, this most people can relate to!

   However, some things I didn’t like, for example, the book was extremely slow. The children only found Prince Caspian very late into the book, and I felt that after that is was a very rushed ending. Peter fought the Telmarine King and then went home.  Because of this dragged out story, it made this read slightly boring with little action and exciting moments. This affected the marks drastically, as I was constantly saying to myself, “This book is terrible! Read something else!”

   After watching an action packed, heartfelt (funny at times) movie, the book was quite disappointing. Although the film wasn’t true to the book, it packed for action and excitement in to the family novel. I wouldn’t recommend this book to others, despite the characters and atmosphere, the plot needed more attention to it, and more excitement to captivate the reader.
