I did not remember quite a lot about this book. I liked how the children had more agency in the book, since they were older and more capable than the last time they were in Narnia. I also liked Caspian's story of his rearing and escape. ( )

For me, "Prince Caspian" isn't one of the highlights of the Narnia series. Although it continues the journey of the Pevensie children, it seems like relatively bog-standard fantasy fare, with new characters who I actually find don't enhance the story that much. "The Magician's Nephew" suggested there were so many worlds out there, and this - while not a bad story, by any means - doesn't take much advantage of Lewis' imagination, beyond a few funny incidents. Perhaps I'm just not interested in the more standard fantasy tropes that appear here. ( )

Prince Caspian was always my favorite Narnia book (though apparently not many others agree with this!) and this is still the case upon rereading. Also the audio version I listened to was narrated by Lynne Redgrave! ( )

First words
Once there were four children whose names were Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy, and it has been told in another book called The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe how they had a remarkable adventure.
"You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve," said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor in earth."
