Book Review: The Chronicles of Narnia - The horse and his boy
The Horse and His Boy Summary
I know I loved them, because I re-read them constantly afterwards, but I also know that I missed most of the jokes. When I was old enough to read them again, I discovered that the books had way more to them than five-year-old me could fathom. Each of the seven offers something different to the grown-up reader, but the one that sticks out to me the most is The Horse and His Boy. Although it is probably the most problematic of the Chronicles, The Horse and His Boy inspired me as a reader because it was one of the first non-European stories that I read. The alternating cold and hot, that implacable sense of nature, and the feeling that maybe, if you listen and pay attention, if you heed advice, you will make it through.
Hey Oliviah! I just came by to tell you:. It's been a while since I dropped by here in your blog, but I visit from time to time and I thought I'd drop by and say hi so Hi! This series is so lovely! One of the things I love about it is that instead of following a specific set of characters, the author focused more on the world's lifetime. If you remember the first book and the description of worlds as being pools it makes so much sense, you know?
