This is my first foray into The Chronicles of Narnia. I’ve seen the movies (or at least some of them), but only once when they first came out, and don’t remember much about the movie based on this book. This is yet another series I wish I’d read when I was younger; I have a feeling I would have liked it more as a kid. Overall, I enjoyed it a little more than the previous book. Maybe that's because the Pevensies aren't newcomers to Narnia anymore, but I think it's more due to the Narnians that they encounter this time. Reepicheep made my heart melt!

The story involving Caspian, as well as Peter and Edmund's additions to the conflict, I enjoyed. I've never been one for reading battle sequences, so I appreciated that most of the fighting was summarized. Even the one full fight that was shown had a lot of interjection by other characters, so it was more fun than it probably should have been. I was not a fan of the sequence of events that followed Susan, Lucy, and Aslan as they gathered up the rest of the Old Narnians. It all felt a little strange to me and made me wonder what the purpose of it was. Most of what was shown didn't really affect the rest of the story much.

It is possible I misinterpreted parts of this book, though it is meant for readers more like my daughter's age, and I doubt she will get bigger meaning out of it than I did when she reads the book. However, aside from those areas, I enjoyed the book overall and think she will too. ( )

Good, though inconsistent. Each book in the series seems to marginally improve on its predecessor. I read on with the hope that the series extends beyond simply being decent, enjoyable books. ( )

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.

Book four in The Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian is suppose to be the ruler of Narnia however, his Uncle has killed his brother and has a new son. Prince Caspian sees that if he stays he will be dead, so he leaves searching for the Narnia he has heard about. ( )

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."
