    The Silver Chair (Chronicles of Narnia, #4), C. S. LewisThe Silver Chair is a children's fantasy novel by C. S. Lewis, published by Geoffrey Bles in 1953.

    Ah, the strange joys of Narnia! How is a middle-aged feminist nonbeliever supposed to feel about this contradictory volume?Pro: Jill Pole is a strong, active, fun, funny, vigorous girl that any reader, male or female, will be happy to have as a protagonist. Con: Jill's old enough to be active, but young enough not to be a sexual being. Which is clearly the only reason Lewis is comfortable having her around, because:Con: Once again, Lewis only all...

    Probably the weakest so far, but scraped 4 stars and still fun More tomorrow :)Right I have been thinking about this review all day. It was the weakest of the books so far with what felt almost like a padded out story and I was thinking it would be a 3 star read. That said i didn't bank on Puddleglum, he was the real star of the book and added enough to make me give it 4 stars.The book features the Pevensie's cousin Eustace, now a Narnian regular...

    Finally, a proper novel! Thank you, Mr. Lewis. Sixth time's the charm, eh?The Silver Chair is my favorite out of all the Narnia books. Not only does it have all the usual elements of this wonderful, rich fantasy world Lewis created, but the characters are better, at least in my opinion, the story feels less contrived, and it has the added benefit of being a proper novel. That is to say, it has: a) an actual plot; b) an identifiable climactic poin...

    I'm just going to give a generic opinion of the whole series.We love them.The end.Okay, so maybe I'll tell you that we read them outloud to the kids almost 2 years ago. So they were 5 going on 6 and 2. They all loved them and followed the plot and talked about the characters during their play.We're re-reading them again (now ages 8, 4 and 2) and they're loving them even more than the first time. All I hear, all day long is "For Narnia" and then t...

    The Silver Chair is a fascinating adventure story of the Chronicles of Narnia. After my disappointment over The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, I was a little apprehensive as to how I would receive it. But all my fears were groundless as the story held my interest from the first chapter. For the first time, we don't meet the Pevensies. Instead we meet Eustace, returned to Narnia with Jill Pole, a school friend of his. Although one misses Pevensies, t...

    The 6th book in the Chronicles of Narnia, Eustace from The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is back and this time he brings along a schoolmate, Jill Pole to adventure in Narnia. I always had the impression that this particular book was scary or the darkest of the series. Blame it on the BBC series that I saw on YTV as a kid.I thought the Queen was going to be as dark and mean as the one from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. However, I felt it was...

    I just love this series so much. No matter how many times I read it, I never get tired of it! And each time I read it, it’s like I’m discovering Narnia for the first time again. This book is one of my favourites out of the series, I love the adventures our heroes go through to save the lost prince and return him to his rightful place. It allows us a look at a different part of the world of Narnia and it truly is magical!

    PUDDLEGLUUUMMMMM. <3I forgot how much I love him. "I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia." MY SOUL IS FEELING THINGS. <333(Also, these two bits were particularly priceless. xD And in the inquiry all sorts of things about Experiment House came out, and about ten people got expelled. After that, the Head's friends saw that the Head was no use as a H...

    C.S. Lewis and I are never going to see eye to eye. First, because I've yet to feel any desire to participate in a seance, and second, I prefer my manipulative (religious) propaganda to be much more subtle in nature. And yet, despite all the above, I can't help but keep coming back to these books. What can I say? The appeal of a magical world in a wardrobe is irresistible. Yes, I knooooow it's not actually inside the wardrobe, yadda yadda yadda.....

    4.5 starsSuch an epic ending ! In this book, Eustace and Jill travel back to Narnia. Jill meets Aslan and she's assigned to find the long-lost prince, there're signs to remember while they're wandering into the dangerous land. But Jill forgets all things Aslan tells her, that makes they lost themself in the giant city. They must find a way out.I found out that this book has the slow beginning, but when Eustace, Jill and Puddleglum travel to the U...

    This is my sixth journey into the fantastical lands of Narnia, as I have chosen to read the series in chronological rather than publication order.Eustace Stubb and Jill Pole manage to escape the bullies of their own world and enter into the fantastical lands of Narnia. Borne on a lion's breath they descend and discover that the lands are once again in turmoil. Young Prince Rilian is missing and old King Caspian is on his death bed, with no heir t...

    Absolutely brilliant, one of my favourite Chronicle of Narnia books.

    The last two books are definitely not in line for my favourites. There are various factors -- one of which is simply that I don't like seeing Narnia come to an end! But the main one is that I don't find Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum that compelling as main characters. Or Rillian, for that matter, even though he's Caspian's son. They're quite realistic and human, and lack the nobility that Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy have, I think. Perhaps too re...

    Once upon a time, about forty years ago, I read the entire series of The Chronicles of Narnia in a single week. Way back then, I would probably given The Silver Chair two stars. But only because I was feeling generous and I was still in the halo of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.Some time in the interim, The Silver Chair moved from the bottom of my ratings to the top. And I do mean the very top. Today I'd give it more than five stars, if I could....
  • Ann
    I felt that The Silver Chair gave better character arcs to the "son and daughter of Adam and Eve" than some of the other Narnia books. The focus of the book seemed to be shared between the children, Eustace and Jill, as well as the quest - instead of focusing on the quest alone. Also, the Marsh-wiggle is a well drawn character and pretty unique from Lewis' other personalities in Narnia. Like the other books in the series, this one continues to to...

    Lo siento pero este libro es el peor de la saga.Nada de lo que sucedió en este libro me gusto, me aburrió muchísimo, los personajes se me hicieron tan grises, lo que sucedió en la trama me hacia pensar que no sucedió en Narnia, no había magia, no había esa sensación de ilusión, no lo disfrute en absoluto, hubo partes demasiado pesadas, fue el libro que más pesado y lento se me hizo. Eustace regresa con una amiga de la escuela, Jill. Par...

    The Journey to the Depths22 June 2017 Well, here we have another C.S. Lewis book which suggests that this post might actually be quite long. The reason for this is that C.S. Lewis is one of the most considered writers that I know and when he wrote, and published, a book he never did it by halves. As such we have, like the rest of the Chronicles of Narnia, a book that while it has been written for children, and generally aimed at children (which i...

    هنوز هم معتقد نیستم که نویسنده عنوان خوبی برای این جلدش انتخاب کرده باشه.. شاید تنها یک کمی از یک فصل به این صندلی نقره ای می پردازه که در واقع شاهزاده لیرین رو طلسم کرده و وقتی شاهزاده با کمک یوستس و جیل و باتلاقی موفق میشن که شاهزاده رو از طلسم آزاد ک...

    Another one year in London and about 50 years in Narnia. Eustace Scrubb was comforting his friend, Jill Pole when the kid that bullied Jill came. They ran to hide and stumbled into another world where Eustace fell to a cliff but saved by Aslan. The two of them were then sent to Narnia to find the missing Prince Rillian, son of Caspian X and the heir of Narnia throne.Eustace and Jill is my favorite pair in Narnia series. I especially love their ad...

    A pleasure to read this to my kids. Arguably my favourite Narnia book! And isn't this every bullied child's dream - to escape the bullies and be whisked away to a magical land?
  • Jonathan Terrington
    The Chronicles of Narnia are my favourite book series and The Silver Chair stands as my favourite book within that series. There are several clear reasons for this in a story about redemption, belief and magical adventure and I shall attempt to explain them to you.I particularly love the plot and characters of The Silver Chair. The idea of a quest to find a missing prince is rather old hat, but the twist Lewis offers on that quest with Aslan prov...

    Narnia is a magical place... a land you wish you would get to visit at least once in your lifetime! And meet the great Aslan as well... And this book starts with the same idea, wherein Eustace wants to visit this world in the other realm again after his adventures in the previous tale makes him hungry for more. I found The Silver Chair to be one of my favourite stories in these masterpieces of C.S. Lewis. This tale gave me an adventurous feeling ...
  • Denisse
    Maybe Narnia is not for me. I mean, I loved the first one but, it had a sparkle I haven't found in the others so far. This one was even slow pace wich is stupid cause the letter is huge and the number of pages a piece of cake for a normal reader. It is adventurous as all the other books I've read so far but the new characters lack something the originals had. Anyway, it helps when you just read something very long and challenging.

    Despite what the title implies, a silver chair is not the star of The Silver Chair. The seat in question isn't a grand MacGuffin or a legendary artifact; it's just a prop of moderate prominence present in a single scene. If it weren't for the book's heading, I doubt most readers would remember the chair, much less what color it was. And this got me wondering; what would it be like if the rest of The Chronicles of Naria were named in a similar fas...
