The Horse and His Boy [Book Review]

Bree, the horse, has been kidnapped from Narnia and longs to return there. Shasta, on the verge of being sold into slavery, decides to run away with him in search of the home he's always dreamed of. But the journey is full of surprises and fraught with dangers, and when the companions uncover a treasonous plot, it also becomes a race against time. It was enough of a surprise for Shasta to discover he wasn't the son of Arsheesh the fisherman. But when Bree, the talking horse, whisks him away from the cruel land of Calormen in search of the safe and happy of Narnia where High King Peter rules, Shasta finds himself up to his ears in mystery and adventure such as he could never imagine in his wildest dreams. Their journey is charged with fear and danger, intrigue and adventure, as they make their way in disguise through the city of Tashbaan, past the eerie tombs, then on by burning day and silvery night over the harsh desert to the high mountains of Archenland. Even when Narnia is in sight, Shasta realises he must finally conquer his fear.

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?

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.
