Book Review: The Silver Chair (Chronicles of Narnia #4)

Hello folks!
As I continue my way through the Chronicles of Narnia, I reached the point without movie adaptations. Actually there was supposed to be one for The Silver Chair, but unfortunately nothing ever was heard again about that.
So let’s get the imagination going and head straight for Narnia!


The Plot:
Eustace, the now rather nice cousin of the Pevensies, is drawn back into Narnia. This time he is accompanied by Jill, a girl he goes to school with. Before long, the two kids have to go on a dangerous mission: Find the lost Prince of Narnia, Caspian’s son.


The Rating:
First of all, I was very pleased to find out that Aslan wasn’t too present in this book. After the first three installments I was rather annoyed that whenever a problem arises he simple steps in and basically without doing anything saves the day (in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader this happened in almost every other chapter…)
However, although this might count as an attempt to make the story more original, it all was pretty foreseeable. After reading 20 pages you already know where the whole thing is heading, so don’t expect any surprises.
So despite all this, The Silver Chair is one of my favourite parts in this series. So far, it’s the only story that doesn’t drag on. It may not be too original but it is a pleasant and quick read. It also nice to have a change of characters in ever novel, otherwise the whole thing would be pretty boring by now.

Well, all in all I have to say The Chronicles of Narnia and me won’t ever be best friends, but The Silver Chair is one of the best installments in the series!
