About the Author

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, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

In the novel Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis, Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan accidentally arrive back in Narnia. They come across a dwarf, Trumpkin, who works for Caspian (nephew of Miraz). Caspian's tutor, Doctor Cornelius, helps him escape into the wilderness of Narnia. King Miraz furiously searched for Caspian. Meanwhile, Caspian had sent Trumkin out to search for the kings of Narnia (Lucy, Edmund, Peter, and Susan). As they make their way to Caspian, they get lost. Lucy sees Aslan, who says that the Detour was his fault and that they should follow him. The two girls and boys split up and go separate ways. The boys find Caspian and Miraz arguing. This is when Peter steps in and fights Miraz. The very next day, Aslan creates a doorway for them to go through to go back to England. They soon arrive in the railway station like nothing had ever happened. There are many positives from this book. I like how one year goes by in our time when hundreds go by in narnian time. This book may seem very long, but if you really enjoy it, it will fly by. The book has some negatives in it too. I like how C.S. is telling two stories in the beginning (The kings and Caspian). Some of the words are very hard to understand. The book can get boring and long. C.S. Lewis writes in an expository manner by using descriptive words and explaining things that are hard to understand. She writes with many many details. If you like adventure and battles, this book is for you. The book flies by making you want to read other books in this series. There are many other books by C.S. Lewis such as the following: The "Chronicles of Narnia", Yours, Jack, Words to Live By, Mere Christianity, Space Trilogy, The Great Divorce: A Dream, and many more.

This book was outstanding. The C.S Lewis has created this entirely new world, and it seems to be pulled right out of our greatest childhood fantasy's. No amount of words can do this book justice you have to read it for yourself.

If you've fallen in love with The Chronicles of Narnia, you've gotta check out PC!! This book is one of my all-time favorites. The book could be read as either book 2 or book 4, depending on which order you're reading them in. You can either read it after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, or after The Hose and His Boy. Either way, it's a great read!! By the way, I think the filmmakers did a wonderful job on the movie. Just saying. :0)

I have finished reading the book The chronicles of Narnia 'Prince Caspian'. This book i would say is very interesting. In a a way i think this book is quite better than others that i have have read. Why you may ask, well because is has action and adventure with these four kids named Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensey. I really enjoyed reading this book. The reason is because, first of all, this book is on Narnia, and I happened to like the other books based on The Chronicles of Narnia. Next, this has action and is quite funny too. I really suggest for you to read this book, The Chronicles Of Narnia 'Prince Caspian'

When I bought the boxed set before the first Narnia movie was released, the story of the Magician's Nephew pulled me into the realm of possibly the greatest writer of all time. I had a great time reading the first three. But when I started Prince Caspian, I don't know, maybe I was just really tired, but I couldn't make it through the book. It seemed quite sudden. A person blows the horn, and well, the 4 reappear in Narnia. Maybe I was really tired, I might give it another shot, but I know which books are good, I am willing to stay up late for them, but I don't think Prince Caspian met up to my standards.

(The Inklings Series is a monthly series featuring the works of my two favorites, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, or books about them. But I don’t want it to be just me chatting about these books, so that’s where y’all come in! I’ll announce the book at least four weeks in advance of when the discussion post will go live, so you have plenty of time to get the book and read it. Then, the following month, I’ll post a discussion post and let the fun begin!!) I mentioned this on Twitter, but everytime I finish a Narnia book, my soul feels refreshed. I love Lewis’ capability to help us understand God’s character through Aslan and humanity through the people and creatures of Narnia. Every time I reread them, I have more life experiences, so I seem to understand these things more deeply. I love when the stories mention the history of Narnia. I’d forgotten that Caspian’s line, the Telmarines, were pirates from our world (thus why Caspian ruled as a son of Adam), had a famine and then invaded Narnia. What are the odds stories from the “missing” years will appear? You know, Go Set a Watchman style, but without the shadiness? I’m so curious what happened in all those years between the destruction of the White Witch and Caspian. Did the Telmarines rule for all those years then? Who ruled Narnia after the siblings left? Questions, questions. There were two things I really enjoyed from Prince Caspian: How the characters’ reactions or beliefs mirror how many people believe or don’t. How Lewis displayed the freedom that comes with following Aslan. Before diving into that a bit more, I just have to mention I caught the chuckles every time they referred to Trumpkin as D.L.F (Dear Little Friend). Also, I love Lucy! Especially because of comebacks like this: “That’s the worst of girls,” said Edmund to Peter and the Dwarf. “They never can carry a map in their heads.” “That’s because our heads have something inside them,” said Lucy. Lewis had an incredible way of describing Narnia and all those who lived there with such ease. When the council was forming, I learned so much more about the creatures and their personalities just by reading their reactions to when they should have the council. Like so: “The Bulgy Bears were very anxious to have the feast first and leave the council till afterwards: perhaps till to-morrow. Reepicheep and his Mice said that councils and feasts could both wait, and proposed storming Miraz in his own castle that very night. Pattertwig and the other squirrels said they could talk and eat at the same time, so why not have the council and feast all at once? The Moles proposed throwing up entrenchments round the Lawn before they did anything else. The Fauns thought it would be better to begin with a solemn dance. The Old Raven, while agreeing with the Bears that it would take too long to have a full council before supper, begged to be allowed to give a brief address to the whole company. But Caspian and the Centaurs and the Dwarfs over-ruled all these suggestions and insisted on holding a real Council of War at once.” More at http://booksandbeverages.org/2015/09/16/prince-caspian-by-c-s-lewis-inklings-series-discussion/
