I really like the Narnia series. This is the third book in the series. It takes place after the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It's a tale about a boy named Shasta and a Narnian named Bree, who is a horse. It tells of their adventure as they try to escape to Narnia.
The Chronicles take a different direction after LWW, and this is a neat parallel story that adds breadth to the land of Narnia.
Great. Entertaining and suspensful.
A wild gallop for freedom-on a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. They are trying to escape their terrible lives and find themselves in a terrible battle that will decide their and Narnia's fate. A great book. Great gift!
BBC adaptation. Great audio entertainment for kids in the car or at home.
the 3rd in the series of chronicles. great adventure
I really enjoyed this tale -
Narnia..where horses talk..where treachery is brewing..where destiny awaits. On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the center of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself.
Written in 1952. I read this over and over when I was young, and I took it all very seriously, including the mysterious reason a young boy should not be a slave in a certain house, as intimated on page 11.
Aesome writer, awesome series!
Not only is the Narnia series one of my favorite sets of books, this particular book is my favorite of all the Narnia books. Don't get wound up in the movie - read the books - they'll sweep you away on a wonderful ride of imagination.
This book is different than the others in the series. This one is about Bree, a Narnian talking horse, who is kidnapped when he was a foal and had become a slave horse to a Calormen lord and was a great war horse, a boy named Shasta, who was kidnapped when he was an infant, a princess name Aravis, who was escaping from an arranged marriage on a talking horse named Hwin. It starts with Bree and Shasta! Bree wants to go home to Narnia and talks Shasta, who wants to escape his fate into going to Narnia. They both agree and start there journey. Along the way they meet up with Aravis and Hwin who are also heading to Narnia. They have some scary things happen but they eventually make it to Narnia where Shasta learns something that changes his life. A fun adventure indeed!
Another great book from a wonderful series. Children and adults will love this book.
It's sort of tattered near the bottom, but nothing major. It's not going to fall apart in your hands while you're reading it, so no worries.
