Prince Caspian, Book 4 of 7; Another exciting adventure in the land of Narnia...The four children now returning to boarding school, who ruled as Kings and Queens, are summoned back into in the enchanting world of Narnia... Their help is desperately needed in this new adventure. Reading C.S Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, you just want more and more...you don't ever want the adventure to end... These books are both for the young and old alike.
This book was great. Again, I am pleased with C.S. Lewis' lack of description allowing the reader to imagine the world for themselves and not bogging down a wonderful story in a 400 page book.
The book isn't such a high adventure as the movie made it out to be. There was less battling and more hanging out with Aslan.
I was impressed by the fact that all the children were able to see Aslan in the beginning, but they had to learn to trust Lucy and follow him for a while before he showed himself to Edmond, Peter and finally Susan. Again teaching us the lesson that Christ is there, we just have to trust and Follow before He will reveal himself to us.
I think that C.S. Lewis was a genius in his time, and he continues to teach the world about Christ through his beautifully written books.
For me, this book was much better than book 3 (The Horse and His Boy). If you are reading the series and get hung up on book 3, I suggest that you don't give up because this book picks back up with the action.

I am a 9 year old girl going into the fourth grade. I really liked the book. Some words are hard to understand because of the fact that the characters are English. Even though there weren't many pictures but, I could see all the things happening clearly in my mind. Great description and figurative language. I had trouble with name and a lot of information coming in at once but I really loved the book.
