Title: “The Horse and His Boy”
Author: C.S. Lewis
Overall Thoughts: This story takes place during the reign of the Fab Four (Peter, Susan, Edmund, Lucy). Growing up this was my FAVORITE book. I love the journey Shasta and Bree go on together. Lewis introduces many great characters in this book. Being that it is the only book to take place during the time before the Fab Four leave Narnia the first time this book is a bit of a stand alone.
It is widely known that the Narnia books are seen as allegories to biblical stories. The parallel universes have been said to be the spirit being represented. I recently heard this fact and it got me thinking about what Narnia can represent. Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy all rule and become adults in this land. Could Narnia also be the dreams of what someone could be? My review here is getting a bit off topic but I couldn’t help but ponder on that little nugget of information.
This book alone is a great story, and if you are not one to read the most “popular” of a series I recommend this one!
