Title: Prince Caspian
Author: C.S. Lewis
Finished: July 2, 2009
Book 4 in the Chronicles of Narnia Series, the second to be made into a film. I enjoyed this story much more than the previous, but I was also familiar with it having already watching the film. I liked the introduction of the new character, Prince Caspian, and his association with the kids, along with more about the time lapse only touched on during The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Prince Caspian is the story of the children as they make their first return trip back to Narnia to find that hundreds of years have passed and there is a new king, and new conflicts that Narnia faces. Together with Prince Caspian, the children help restore Narnia to its former self.

Title: The Horse and His Boy
Author: C.S. Lewis
Finished: June 30, 2009
Reading the books in chronological order, this one was next, but another one that I didn’t enjoy as much as some the previous. I really enjoy the stories that involve the four children and their adventures. This part of the Chronicles of Narnia was a little confusing, which is surprising because it’s a children’s story, but even as an adult following the unfamiliar names and characters that are made up and in a different world.
I’m not surprised that out of the entire series I would enjoy some of the stories more than others, as any series of books goes. Plus knowing they are aimed for a younger audience helps me get through them more than anything else.
