I've read Prince Caspian at least 5 times, and when I found this book in the Alkantrant library I wasn't expecting much. Prince Caspian is a fairly straightforward children's story based on a theme common to many fairy tales -- an evil usurping king who suppresses the true heir to the throne, is eventually deposed and the rightful ruler is restored. How much can you say about that that isn't said in the story itself?

But Devin Brown has quite a lot to say about it, and a lot of what he says is qu

As I mentioned in my review of the first book in Brown series, my respect for C S Lewis’s writing skills has broadened. My respect for Devin Brown’s knowledge of C S Lewis’s works—and literature in general—has also grown as I have read the first two Inside books.

As Brown reminds us in the Introduction, Lewis had originally planned on writing the second book about Narnia about a boy named Digory who had the gift of speaking with trees. The book about Digory would, of course, come much later, wit

An insightful and though-provoking exploration of the world within C.S. Lewis' Prince Caspian. Devin Brown uses comparisons with other works by the same author, as well as considering those he would have been familiar with to good effect. However, this also makes the book much better for those already versed with Lewis' books than those who are new to them. I would recommend this to anyone loves the world of Narnia (preferably straight after reading the story which it is about).

Fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. It was entertaining, very interesting, and I definitely learned a lot about Lewis's genuis. And it proves that there is a lot more to Prince Caspian that meets the eye (although Ben Barnes is good looking, hehe lol).
