Book Title            The Horse and His Boy    

Book Author     C. S. Lewis  

Pub. Year            1954

Genre    Fantasy

My Rating           5 Stars

Ease of Read           Very easy with great meaning 

ISBN   978-0064471060  

I was attracted to this book because… Unfortunately, The Chronicles of Narnia didn’t make it to my local library when I was a child. I didn’t get to read them until I was in my late twenties. I’ve embarked on experiencing Narnia once again. This time, I read The Magician’s Nephew before The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Now the The Horse and His Boy.  I went into this book with the fresh knowledge of how Narnia was created and some key information that allow pieces of the puzzle to come together from the beginning. 

  

This book was about  In a time of peace, after the tales of The, Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and before the time the four London children return to their world. This is a story of a fisherman’s abused son, the daughter of a powerful dignitary, whose father has arranged her marriage to an older, disgusting man, and two talking horses who had been stolen from Narnia. All of them had a deep desire to escape their current conditions. When it seemed like fate had brought them together, it seemed like their best hope was to escape to Narnia. Of course, their meeting, was been directed by the lion, Aslan. You have to read the story, to learn of roles they would play in the history of Narnia. 

    

Things I liked about this book While the English visitors play roles in the story, the Chronicles are becoming the stories of the inhabitants who live in the worlds of Aslan. More of Aslan’s powerful characteristics are revealed in this story. We continue to see, while Aslan is good, he is not safe. In of the scenes hardest to read, Aslan, in his love,  scars the girl, to remind her of a foolish thing she had done. One of my favorite Aslan themes is repeated in this story. When he asked about what happened to his friend, 

Aslan’s replied, “I am telling you your story, not hers. I tell no-one any story but his own.”    

   

Why you should read this book If you have ever questions about a friend’s or yours life story, how Aslan leads the characters in this story might answer some of your questions. It has been a great reminder for me, I need to worry about my story. 

    

This book lived up to the back cover copy It is a ‘passport to a most extraordinary excursions into magical lands and enchanted happening, a time when you learn ‘how Aslan, the noble lion, freed Narnia from the spell of the White Witch.’

This is the order of reading, that those who have studied the Chronicles recommend you read them in. This order has increased my enjoyment and understanding. 

  1. The Magician’s Nephew
  2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
  3. The Horse and His Boy
  4. Prince Caspian
  5. The Voyage of the “Dawn Treader”
  6. The Silver Chair
  7. The Last Battle
