The Silver Chair
The Silver Chair - C.S. Lewis

I'm doing a reread of the Chronicles of Narnia, and I started with The Silver Chair. It was better than I remembered.

 

It's a solid adventure story, and I like Jill. I'm not a huge fan of Puddleglum, but I found him less annoying than the first time I read the book.

 

A few more random thoughts about The Chronicles of Narnia after the cut.

The Sliver Chair Review
The Silver Chair - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

Hello everyone and how's it going? I'm doing pretty well myself. As you can tell I have another Chronicle review which is "The Sliver Chair" So, here we go:

 

The story follows Eustace once again along with his friend Jill. Together they go to Narnia where Eustace is needed. He and Jill are to rescue King Caspian's son Prince Rilian from an evil witch. 

 

Well, the story was rather great. I liked that Eustace has finally gotten to be seasoned warrior. It was rather entertaining and very insightful. I, don't have much to say about it more only that I loved it as the others.

 

So, that's it from me. I'll be back on Wed with another post, on what I don't know! Until then I hope you all have a great day/night where ever you are.

 

&

 

SPARKLES!!!

The Silver Chair
The Silver Chair (The Chronicles of Narnia, #4) - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

"Narnia . . . where giants wreak havoc . . . where evil weaves a spell . . . where enchantment rules. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, a noble band of friends are sent to rescue a prince held captive. But their mission to Underland brings them face-to-face with an evil more beautiful and more deadly than they ever expected."

 

The Silver Chair was read as part of the C.S. Lewis Project that I'm undertaking with a group on Goodreads.

 

I remember so well the first time I read this story to my two children, all snuggled up in bed with book in hand. Each night we read one or two more chapters of the series until we were finished the final act. I'm still not sure who of the three of us was most enthralled as we visited Narnia with all the different children and shared in their adventures.

 

This book has Eustace and Jill being summoned by Aslan to undertake a perilous task. Prince Rilian, son of King Caspian, has been missing for ten years without any word of his whereabouts. Their task is to find the prince and bring him back to Narnia. Their journey has them in lands not previously explored, deep beneath the earth in caves best left forgotten, encountering all kinds of strange creatures, enormous sized owls, Marsh-wiggles, giants, gnomes, and an evil witch who ensnares all with her spells of enchantment.

 

I just loved this series, and this book most of all so far. Christianity is portrayed through various animals, foremost of which is Aslan, a talking lion, who breathes life into the world around him, but it is subtle (the first reading I never once made the connection) giving us a wonderful adventure fantasy that the entire family can enjoy.

If you haven't read it before I recommend you do.

The Silver Chair (The Chronicles of Narnia, #4) - C.S. Lewis,Pauline Baynes

The series seems to get better and better as it progresses with interesting new characters introduced who are trying to fulfill the quest given them by Aslan. Reading these books on my own brings back such wonderful memories of snuggling up with my kids each night to read "just one more" chapter. Aw, now I miss that.
