    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, c...

    “Things never happen the same way twice.” 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 flowe...

    This is my fourth journey into the fantastical lands of Narnia, as I have chosen to read the series in chronological rather than publication order.From the very first line I knew I was sure to love this book as it details the return of the Pevensie children from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the most famous and my most beloved Narnia tale. Only one year later in the human world, and centuries later in Narnian time, the children return to...

    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!!

    November 19, 2008. I've read these books a zillion and one times and surely I shall read them a zillion more. Because every single time, I realize new truths and find more honor in their pages. Today, I've read a passage that I find disturbing and quite out of character for CS Lewis: p.72 "Shall we go farther up for you, up to the crags? There's an Ogre or two and a Hag that we could introduce you to, up there." "Certainly not," said Caspian. "I ...

    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...

    What can you say. Another fantastic adventure in Narnia! And of course,I cried at the end.
  • Bookwraiths
    Reviewed at Bookwraiths ReviewsPrince Caspian is the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia. C.S. Lewis begins this tale by revisiting the Pevensie children, who have survived WW II and are at a train station waiting to head off to boarding school. While discussing their concerns about being separated, they are suddenly pulled into another world, which they do not immediately recognize as Narnia. Indeed, the land has changed to such an extent th...

    Por Narnia, por el leónMe fascinó, mi favorito hasta el momento, me encantaron los nuevos personajes en la historia, la forma en que se fue desarrollando la historia desde qué volvieron a llegar a Narnia los hermanos y sin duda como Lewis tiene esa manera única de narrar sus libros, en forma de que te lo esta contando como si alguien te contará un relato, o esa manera en no ir contando cosas que no servirían a la trama, todo directo y lo qu...

    It's been years since I allowed myself the pleasure of rereading the Narnia books. And now I have two pleasures in reading these books: enjoying my old childhood joy, and analyzing the writing itself.One thing I remember noticing even as a child is the absolute dearth of femaleness. I don't mean female characters per se: in terms of having someone to care about and directly identify with, there's always a female child as well as a male one. (Ever...

    Υπέροχο, ένα από τα καλύτερα παραμυθικά φαντασυ βιβλία που έχω διαβάσει!!! Ζώα που μιλούν, δρυάδες, νάνοι, φαυνοι... όλοι οι μαγικοί κόσμοι, τα μαγικά όντα και οι παλιοί μύθοι παρελαύνουν αρμονικά στον τόπο που τον λένε Νάρνια! Είναι σκέτο ξεμυάλισμα...

    Note: Just finished reading this one with my 5 yr old, and we loved it! I'm enjoying it much better this time around. Maybe because I didn't understand all the implications the first time, or maybe because I'm seeing it through the eyes of my child. Either way, I love C.S. Lewis more each time I read him! And I've decided not to tell my son about the analogy to Christianity. I want him to figure it out for himself. But just the other day he compa...

    Cada vez que tengo que escribir o pensar sobre Las Crónicas de Narnia, una oleada de sentimientos y recuerdos se apoderan de mi ser. Una de las palabras que usaría para describir mi infancia sería: Narnia. Este tomo me pareció inferior a sus predecesores, no obstante, me gustó. Sinceramente no recuerdo mucho, tengo que releer la saga, pero sí me acuerdo de que El Príncipe Caspian se me hizo un poco pesado en algunas partes. El inicio me en...

    Some of the best theological nuggets appear in this one. Reepicheep is at his most inspirational as well. And don't miss the fact that it is the bad dwarf who doesn't smoke!
  • Denisse
    3.5 After The lion, the witch and the wardrobe, I think Prince Caspian is a bit of a letdown. In essence it is a good book, with a great message but as an adventure it is rush and anti-climactic. Anyway, I still love all the religious references and everything about Aslan and Narnia. The writing is still both great and basic, a perfect child read without a doubt. Es un buen libro, no malinterpreten. Pero tengo problemas con su estructura.Fui la ...

    Although I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the ones before it, it was still a beautiful story. The world of Narnia is exciting as always. The characters come to life before you and you feel instantly submerged in it.
  • Michael Jones
    I just wanted to call attention to what a profound lesson it is when Lucy hears and sees Aslan and the others don't. The response of the others very much parallels the way people respond sometimes when you KNOW you are following the Lord to undertake a certain endeavor.Some, like Susan will tell you you're always dreaming and go back to bed.Some, like Edmund will point out that you've been right before and stick up for you even though he can't qu...

    Jos jedna zabavna prica puna maste i magije. Savrseno za mladje a za nas starije je na zalost malo banalno. Al opet ne smeta procitai.Mada jos bolja varijanta ako imate male klince lepo njima citati pred spavanje :)
  • Amber Hetchler
    Wow, I loved this one even more than The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Prince Caspian is one of the coolest stories I've ever read. Truly magical.
  • Nikki
    If this book is a blatant Christian allegory, I don’t know enough to notice — well, okay, there are some bits which are, but that’s always the case when Aslan is involved. Not surprisingly, perhaps, this is one of my favourites. I love Caspian and his rapid rise to maturity and understanding, and his determination to do right by his people. Even if those people happen to be talking badgers. The supporting cast, like Trumpkin and Trufflehunt...
  • Stephen
    3.0 to 3.5 stars. This is the kind of YA fantasy story that is great to read with the kids as the good guys are really good and the bad guys are really bad. The plot and dialogue are a bit too YA for me to give this a higher rating but I certainly admire the world that C.S. Lewis created and will definitely finish the chronicles.

    Rating: 5/5 || Recenzia pe Secretele CărțilorÎnapoi la Cair ParavelAlături de personajele mele preferate, Susan, Lucy, Edmund și Peter, am călătorit din nou în magica lume a Narniei. Însă de această dată personajele au fost chemate în Narnia cu un scop important.Ajunși în Narnia, aceștia nu recunosc locul unde se află. După ce pun cap la cap indiciile, deduc că Narnia este mult mai schimbată față de cum o știau ei, și înc...

    Original post at One More PageWhen the movie Prince Caspian came out, I watched it without having read the book, so I had zero expectations. All I thought after I watched the movie was it was a little bit long, and I squeed when Aslan showed up. I didn't really like it as much as the first movie on the first watch but it got better when I watched it for the second and third time. Eventually, Prince Caspian became one of those movies that I li...
  • Deborah Pickstone
    My favourite of the Narnian tales, I think. A classic tale of good versus evil, the 'true' Narnians (Christians) are pushed underground, hiding in Aslan's How - and very reminiscent of the Roman catacombs - clearly telling Christians to follow Christ at all costs, even to the death. The characters are divided between believers and unbelievers, with a few turncoats along the way - in both directions. Lucy, the youngest, shows the most courage in g...

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I’m starting to adapt to Lewis’s style. Before I thought he lacked writing skills because he isn’t like other authors I’ve read, but I’m starting to see his uniqueness. Peter, Edmond, Susan and Lucy are called back to Narnia by the Horn Susan left behind. In the last book, they grew to be older and famous Kings and Queens, then came back to their own world as children. A thousand years ha...
  • Daniel
    Here's one thing I don't get about the parts of "The Chronicles of Narnia" I've read so far: Why does C.S. Lewis feel the need, in each book, to make one of the Pevensie children, seemingly at random, completely loathsome? In "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," it was Edmund who was a complete dick for almost the entire book, and now, in "Prince Caspian," it's Susan who's asking for a good bitch-slapping.I think I know why C.S. Lewis does thi...
  • Aisyah (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡
    So, I'm just going to come out and say this book sucks.I hate almost every character in this book, especially the Pevensies except for Edmund who really turned out good. Not to mention where the fuck is Aslan???? Plus, Prince Caspian's stupidity amazes me to no end. This book bores me thoroughly with its oh-so-fascinating plot. Ugh! As if the good guys wouldn't win at the end and everyone fuck you Pevensies lives happily ever after, that is until...
