5.0 out of 5 stars An action-packed adventure in the world of Narnia, May 21 2003
By 
This review is from: The Silver Chair (Full Color) (Paperback)
This, the sixth installment of the Chronicles of Narnia series (though it was published fourth), is quite a bit different than previous books in the series. This novel follows the adventures of Eustace (from the Voyage of the Dawn Treader) and Jill, a new girl, as they try to free the prince Rilian (Caspian's son) from the clutches of an evil enchantress. Last time Eustace was in Narnia, Caspian was a young man, but now he is old and decrepit, and mourns the loss of his son. There is much more action in the plot of this book, and many more adventures than in previous books in the series. There are many new types of creatures introduced (the Marsh-wiggles and Underworlders, for example) and several new characters.
Like the other novels in this series, the Silver Chair is very well-written and enjoyable. It is accessible for children as well as adults, and can provide entertainment to people of any age. Christian references run rampant here, especially with Aslan as a Christ figure (he uses his blood to perform healing and rejuvenation). Besides being a sort of Christian allegory, this book also comments on the school system, and points out the absurdity of 'modern' private schools who don't even teach their students that they are sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. The Chronicles of Narnia are timeless classics, both for their literary and narrative value and for the just plain good values they teach.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to Narnia series, July 22 2003
This review is from: The Silver Chair (Full Color) (Paperback)
Book 6 in a series of 7.
Lucy and Edmund don't appear in his book. Eustace making his 2nd appearance is joined by new character, Jill Pole. They enter Narnia and Jill receives 4 key events in the future that will lead them to the rescue of aging Prince Caspian's son Rilian. They must escape love-to-eat-man giants and battle the Queen who can enchant people with music.
While it is rather sad that the 4 from Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, it's still a great book and nice addition in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing stories that I can read again and again, Feb. 7 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Silver Chair (Full Color) (Paperback)
This completes my collection of Narnia books with the original illustrations. What a beautiful, magical series! I wasn't ready to read them until very recently, and was profoundly moved by them. They have changed the way I view the world, and how I view myself. I love them so much!
