Bree, the talking horse, has been kidnapped from Narnia, and longs to return. Shasta decides to run away with him. Before they know it, they are on a wild and dangerous journey together, through strange cities, eerie tombs and harsh deserts. I know for a fact that I read this book as a child. We h...

My reread of The Horse and His Boy was greatly improved by skimming all the boring bits (which ended up being most of the book for me). I'm not here for the Calormenes even though Aravis is my favorite character in the book.

O começo até que é divertidinho, mas para o meio até o final é bem chato. O livro está repleto de críticas a sociedade hindu, isso é óbvio e é aqui que podemos ver que Nárnia se passa por Europa, como sendo um lugar maravilhoso e de liberdade. A história é boba e previsível. Não lerei os próximos li...

I did like the book, a lot but it had a lot more boring moments for me, but like The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, overall, I enjoyed the stories but The Magicians Nephew is still my favorite thus far. And of course, I love Aslan! I think he will always be my favorite. The thing about this one tho...

I feel really guilty about loving this book as much as I do. I loved it as a kid and I love it now, and there is just so much wrong with it. The xenophobia is positively racist -- by page 5, we're already hearing the first of many references to the fact that the residents of Narnia are considered by...

I recently read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and in my review complained about the heavy handed Christian Allegory, but did admit it to be well-written and imaginative with some striking imagery. Two of my friends insisted though that (The Last Battle aside) the rest of the Narnia books aren...

The Horse and His Boy, by CS Lewis, is a very different type of Narnian adventure than what most readers of the series have experienced, and it is perhaps better because of it. The tale itself begins with a young boy, Shasta, who lives on the seacoast of the land of Calormene with his father, a po...

What can I say? I am thoroughly enjoying my first trip into the world of Narnia and it's adventures. This book was rather interesting. Shasta, Bree, Hwin and Aravis are a group I'd love to travel with again and again. Enjoyable, and has a nice little message at the end from Aslan "No one will ever b...

The Horse and his Boy was certainly enjoyable, although I felt it didn't have the impact of some of the other stories in the Narnia series. It was still a fun read though, and it was interesting to experience that world through characters who always lived there, rather than outsiders who were just v...
