Pro: Jill Pole is a strong, active, fun, funny, vigorous girl that any reader, male or female, will be happy to have as a protagonist.
Con: Jill's old enough to be active, but young enough not to be a sexual being. Which is clearly the only reason Lewis is comfortable having her around, because:
Con: Once again, Lewis only allows grown women as characters when they're scary, ...more
We love them.
Okay, so maybe I'll tell you that we read them outloud to the kids almost 2 years ago. So they were 5 going on 6 and 2. They all loved them and followed the plot and talked about the characters during their play.
We're re-reading them again (now ages 8, 4 and 2) and they're loving them even more than the first time. All I hear, all day long is "For Narnia" and then they rush through the house, swords drawn. They hav ...more
The Silver Chair is my favorite out of all the Narnia books. Not only does it have all the usual elements of this wonderful, rich fantasy world Lewis created, but the characters are better, at least in my opinion, the story feels less contrived, and it has the added benefit of being a proper novel. That is to say, it has: a) an actual plot; b) an identifiable climactic point; and c) a clear, concise denouement. For once, I ...more
And yet, despite all the above, I can't help but keep coming back to these books. What can I say? The appeal of a magical world in a wardrobe is irresistible. Yes, I knooooow it's not actually inside the wardrobe, yadda yadda yadda...

Such an epic ending ! In this book, Eustace and Jill travel back to Narnia. Jill meets Aslan and she's assigned to find the long-lost prince, there're signs to remember while they're wandering into the dangerous land. But Jill forgets all things Aslan tells her, that makes they lost themself in the giant city. They must find a way out.
I found out that this book has the slow beginning, but when Eustace, Jill and Puddleglum travel to the Underworld, it gets better. IMO, The Silver Chair i ...more
Eustace Stubb and Jill Pole manage to escape the bullies of their own world and enter into the fantastical lands of Narnia. Borne on a lion's breath they descend and discover that the lands are once again in turmoil. Young Prince Rilian is missing and old King Caspian is on his death bed, with no heir to precede him. It is up to the duo, along with the ...more

Some time in the interim, The Silver Chair moved from the bottom of my ratings to the top. And I do mean the very top. Today I'd give it more than five stars, if I could. Its rise has been steady; modest at first, it eve ...more

Well, here we have another C.S. Lewis book which suggests that this post might actually be quite long. The reason for this is that C.S. Lewis is one of the most considered writers that I know and when he wrote, and published, a book he never did it by halves. As such we have, like the rest of the Chronicles of Narnia, a book that while it has been written for children, and generally aimed at children (which is impressive for somebody who never had children o ...more

Nada de lo que sucedió en este libro me gusto, me aburrió muchísimo, los personajes se me hicieron tan grises, lo que sucedió en la trama me hacia pensar que no sucedió en Narnia, no había magia, no había esa sensación de ilusión, no lo disfrute en absoluto, hubo partes demasiado pesadas, fue el libro que más pesado y lento se me hizo.
Eustace regresa con una amiga de la escuela, Jill. Para encontrar al Príncipe desaparecido, cuya desaparición ha p ...more
This is a children's book, Seneca. Relax. You got the point when you were younger.
And sometimes, simplicity is best.
The Chronicles of Narnia are my favourite book series and The Silver Chair stands as my favourite book within that series. There are several clear reasons for this in a story about redemption, belief and magical adventure and I shall attempt to explain them to you.
I particularly love the plot and characters of The Silver Chair. The idea of a quest to find a missing prince is rather old hat, but the twist Lewis offers on that quest with Aslan providing new character Jill Pole several signs to rec ...more

This was one of the only book I never read as a kid from the Narnia series. I really enjoyed it - not as much as others, but once again, CS Lewis pulled me in with a spectacular ending. I never read the rest of Caspian's story, so it was nice to see that all play out.

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954. He was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature ...more
