This is the third book in the Chronicles of Narnia. In this book the four children from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe find themselves tugged back into Narnia. A state of civil war has been declared, all the animals, trees and dwarfs have been banished, and Prince Caspian is desperately trying to regain his throne. ( )

I'm surprised how well the movie adapted this book. I've been thinking all these years they made tons of stuff up, but really I just couldn't remember anything from the actual book. I really enjoyed this one. Not my favorite of the series, but it's up there. ( )

Excellent. This story moved so much faster then the last one I read.
I love it. ( )

read this one with my five-year-old. For not really being my favorite Narnia book, I was pleased to find some beautiful passages I love on this reading. I love the way Aslan becomes visible only as the Pevensies follow, how his breath gives courage and strength and his compassion.

Also am struck on how much the journey motif pervades the books. I think of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings as more Journey books, but it seems like in each Narnia book, the characters have to get somewhere and this is a major part of the storyline. ( )

I found that I liked this entry in the Narnia series more than I had as a teen. The story is reasonably exciting (though less so than in the film version) but what really struck me was the theme of having faith. I really liked the way the 4 children varied in their experience of believing in Aslan's presence & how Peter & Susan trusted in (had faith in) Lucy even when they didn't have faith in Aslan at the moment.

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."
