This isn‘t one of my favorites but there‘s still lots of adventure and I do love Puddleglum.

Now onto The Horse and His Boy.

I think this one suffers from not featuring one of the four Pevensies, but Puddleglum's speech at the end and the escape from the Underlands do make up for it! #childrenslit

Meh. I found this one mostly boring as Eustace and his school friend Jill transport to Narnia and Aslan sends them off to find Rilian, the lost Prince of Narnia. I enjoyed the Eustace character arc well enough in Dawn Treader, but I didn't find him very compelling here, nor did I care for Jill. With their new friend Puddlegum, a marsh-wiggle, they are exploring previously uncovered parts of the world, which are mostly underground. ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Their journey felt long but the last few chapters pick up a bit. This is the last of May's review catch up. #NarniaReadalong @caffeineandcandy #BookspinBingo @ TheAromaOfBooks 1y

TheAromaofBooks @dimestoregoblin - I have blank sticker paper that I use to print mailing labels on, so I just find & save cover images then print them on that paper in “contact sheet“ size, cut them out, then peel & stick them as I read the books!! It's a little over-the-top but I love filling in my board with the colorful covers haha 1y

#NarniaReadalong @CaffeineAndCandy

I'm not sure exactly why, but this is the first book in this series that I had a hard time getting into.

I did enjoy Puddlegum though 😀

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I think the first one without any of the original children is a bit harder to connect with, you don‘t even have Caspian or any Narnians that you know well to latch onto from the beginning. (edited) 1y
Addison_Reads @Riveted_Reader_Melissa That's a really good point and probably a big part of why I felt disconnected from this story. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Addison_Reads I always thought that if it had still been just Lucy & Eustace, or it was the beavers or even Reepicheep on this adventure it would have helped. But there‘s just Eustace from the other stories and he‘s still a bit new, a very brief far away view of Caspian and Trumpkin, and then it‘s off with the owls and a creature we had never encountered before....so it‘s all very new. 1y

I'm quite biased when it comes to Narnia - far too many happy memories wrapped up in these to be remotely objective! Another delightful journey - I had forgotten a lot of the details for this one, including just how much I love Puddlegum!!

Thoroughly enjoying the chapter-a-day #NarniaReadalong @CaffeineAndCandy

I didn‘t like this book quite as much as the others I‘ve read, but I still liked it. I absolutely adore Puddleglum, the Marsh-wiggle; he made this book. Tom Baker (the 4th Doctor from Doctor Who) played him in the 90s version put out by the BBC. I‘m so glad I decided to participate in the Narnia read-along, as I‘m really enjoying these books. #narniareadalong

I still enjoyed this, years later and as an adult, but I will admit that I missed the Pevensies and even Caspian‘s presence in this one... but I also like how the series explores that time passes and children grow, and that the adventures don‘t have to include all the same characters to be magical.

To burn off some of the calories from last night's chippie tea, I want for a walk on the seacop. I wasn't able to read along the way as there was a fine drizzle, unusual for West Lancashire #sarcasm
Out on the marsh, plenty of mud, gulls and lapwings, but no marshwiggles.
Coming back up the pad*, nice to see some cobbles and a Lantern Waste style lamppost, unvandalised by interdimensional witches.

Bookwomble *Pad: I was born 7 miles along the coast from where I live now, in Marshside (as lovely as it sounds!), where this type of footpath is called a pad. The village I live in now calls them ginnells, by which the locals mark me out as a newcomer, despite my 15 years of being a resident here 😄 2y
kspenmoll I enjoy hearing about your walks; to icy right now where I live in New England area of USA. 2y
Bookwomble @kspenmoll My walks are all close to home at the moment, of necessity during the current lockdown, but I'm lucky to be in a semi-rural area where, if the scenery isn't exactly dramatic, it is expansive. I love the open skies and, when the clouds clear, the beautiful quality of light. I'm probably on a similar latitude to you but, for as long as the Gulf Stream stays online, we have a mild climate where it's rarely icy, but frequently damp ☔😊 2y

After a busy couple of weeks, I finally finished this one. Aslan sends Eustace and Jill on a quest to rescue the lost Prince. Along the way, we meet memorable new characters like Puddleglum the Marsh-Wiggle and Glimfeather the owl. Aslan gives them specific instructions for the mission. Even though they "muffed" them, Aslan's purpose is fulfilled, and he has grace and forgiveness: "Think of that no more. I will not always be scolding."

Dawn Treader took the wind out of my sails (ha ha) but I sped through this one! I feel like I could have had more of things, more of the underground world, Puddleglum, Rillian, and the witch could‘ve been a bit...more...but it‘s another solid entry to the land of Narnia. I especially loved the bit with Caspian helping out Jill and Eustace. 😊 Not my favorite, but not bad either!

I never have quite come round to liking this properly, though Puddleglum is great. I don't like Eustace and Jill much, Caspian being old sucks, and Rillian is almost a non-entity. Still a meh!

Hulk joined me to read though! #BunniesofLitsy

The first narnia book without Lucy and while it was sad not to have Lucy there, Jill was fun!

The more I get into this reread the more I remember my imagination running wild reading these books the first time as a child. Talking lions and giants, what a world!

Looking forward to wrapping this up with the final book.

Time for comfort books. My daughter, who is now 20, suggested we listen to The Silver Chair, a favorite road trip audiobook for our family over the years. My girl has been unbearably anxious lately and I‘m happy we can sit and listen together and feel calmer.

@24in48 A decent showing for the day, with cleaning and cooking and journalling. I‘ve been called in to work tomorrow, which was to be a day off, so I‘m not going to make it 24 hours... it‘s all right, though, as I read a grip yesterday as well. When I was thinking I‘d read these books this year, I thought it would take months...

Thanking #Scribd for having this wonderfully narrated audiobook! The story was a good fill-in/follow-up to Caspian‘s life after the great Voyage.

By far not my favorite story - Eustace has no business being back in Aslan‘s world 👎🏼 However, Puddleglum had an Eeyore feel to him, and therefore ranks as one of my favorite Narnian characters. Bonus points to this installment for the mention of Reepicheep!

I'm starting to do "chair" book reviews for our blog at work (I work for a chairmaker). Any recommendations? I'm qualifying any book with "Chair" in the title and books about chairs in significant ways - but they definitely don't have to be nonfiction.

Also, I read the tagged book many times (big CS Lewis fan). Soooooo good.

I thought that I‘d be annoyed that the annoying Eustace got into Narnia again, rather than the poor Pevensie children. But actually, I enjoyed this book. It wasn‘t as charming as the previous two, but it had the great character of Puddleglum which made up for that 😁

Oh this series is suddenly getting a little bit dark and a bit more adult. This story was full of lessons, deception and darkness. With one more to go in this series, I‘m not sure what to expect. The light hearted adventures are really no more. Still a great read, and even though Lion, Witch and Wardrobe is completely different, I think this one has tied for fave of the series.
