    This is probably my favorite of the Chronicles. It takes place during the Golden Age of Narnia, with the Pevensies reigning in their prime, although the story is actually set in the countries to the south of Narnia, which provides for a rather different feel to much of this novel. I al...

    (As with all the Narnia books, I read this years ago, but am rereading it now.) I have to say, having now reread all of the Narnia books except for The Last Battle, that this is my favorite. It's coherent, exciting, and has likeable characters. I even found Aslan much more likeable ...

    The basic story is a good and entertaining one, but I could not get beyond the overt prejudices of C.S. Lewis on display throughout this book. I'm incredibly disappointed. His portrayal of the people of Calormen is horrid. I admit, by calor I don't known if he is implying people of ...

    I feel more conflicted about this book than any of the other Narnia books. On the plus side, the story is stronger and CS Lewis manages to keep his blatant editorializing to a minimum (maybe because none of the characters are transplants from wartime London). But holy crap, the mod...

    I feel really guilty about loving this book as much as I do. I loved it as a kid and I love it now, and there is just so much wrong with it. The xenophobia is positively racist -- by page 5, we're already hearing the first of many references to the fact that the residents of Narnia...

    That's it, I give. C.S. Lewis, you have beaten me, I am done. I have been trying to review this for two months, but every time I open a document, my brain just screams "bacon!"* and runs away. This whole childhood nostalgia reread project is supposed to be fun! It's supposed to be m...

    The story is so simple but it took me awhile to appreciate what's going on because I am reading the series not in its proper sequence. I read Book #2, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe last year and now this Book #3, The Horse and His Boy without reading Book #1 The Magician's Nephe...

    I'm torn with my rating. I read this book at least a dozen times growing up and I always loved it, and I just finished listening to a rather fine audio production of it, which I enjoyed. But it's hard for me to separate my nostalgia for this book from a critical evaluation of the story...

    This is increasingly becoming one of my favourites from the Chronicles of Narnia. If asked why, I believe it is because it is the most like a medieval faerie romance. A young boy and girl in the mundane world of Calormen suddenly find themselves in the presence of faeries??talking ...

    Coming Home 26 October 2017 So, it looks like it has come down to me writing a book review during my lunch break. Well, it wouldn't be the first time, and certainly won't be the last (even though I really only have 20 minutes in which to do it). So, as I usually do, I've popped ov...

    The Horse and His Boy was one of my favorite chronicles of Narnia when I was younger ? partly because I love all things oriental, and the setting of Calormen is Lewis?s quasi-Arabian society ? but more importantly, because of the heroine Aravis. The young Calormene aristocrat, a ...

    Ouvir o audiobook foi uma experiência muito boa. Não só foi uma leitura mais dinâmica, como me poupou horas. Literalmente. Porém, continuo a não estar fascinada por Narnia. E é um livro cuja história provavelmente esquecerei asap. Não é um livro que vai ficar comigo. No ger...

    LOL WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO READ THIS BOOK. Possibly because the first three quarters of this book was INCREDIBLY SLOW AND DRAGGED OUT AND POINTLESS?? Don't get me wrong, y'all. I love C.S. Lewis and Narnia is perfection...but that's part of the reason why this book puzzled me. A...

    One word: Orientalist. Sorry, I could not get past it - nor should I have to. This was a terrible book, full of so much imperialist racist anti-Arab/Indian tones that I could not appreciate any aspect of it. Quite frankly I couldn't believe that I was reading this garbage. I don't r...

    The third book in the Chronicles of Narnia, " The Horse and his Boy is the somewhat familiar storyline of an orphan who sets out on an adventure with the help of a few friends and discovers "who they really are." Susan, Peter, Edmund, Lucy and Aslan all make an appearance, but this i...

    The Horse and His Boy is the only book of the Narnia series that features native rather than English children as the main characters, and the only one set entirely in the Narnian world. It is set in the period covered by the last chapter of the inaugural book, The Lion, the Witch, and ...

    ?Do not by any means destroy yourself, for if you live you may yet have good fortune, but all the dead are dead like.? This felt as if I was reading a folktale about a horse and a boy who wander around and seek their new adventure. Yet the humor in this book is abundant, ...

    The Horse and His Boy is STILL my favorite Narnia book. So many gems! ? "I was the lion. I was the lion who forced you to join with Aravis. I was the cat who comforted you among the houses of the dead. I was the lion who drove the jackals from you while you slept. I was the lion w...

    Este libro esta basado cuando los niños de Pevensie todavía están en Narnia, pero el foco está en dos niños jóvenes de Calormene, Shasta y Aravis. Ambos huyen: buscan una vida mejor en Narnia, involucrándose en una batalla entre los Narnianos y los Calormenes. El caballo y e...

    I was eager to read this one after having enjoyed the previous book a lot. For some reason I haven?t posted those reviews yet but have decided to post this one. I know, I don?t understand my reasoning either. But oh well. This story surprised me. It wasn?t even set in Narnia, ...

    This is my third journey into the lands of Narnia as I have been reading the series in chronological rather than publication order. With probably the most intriguing title of the series, this was the tale I was most excited for, but it ultimately didn't live up the magic of the previou...

    By The Lion?s Mane, this book is good!! Maybe it?s my favorite in the whole series. I wonder why did I skip this one the first time I read this series? I should have read this book sooner >.< This book is unique among the other Narnia books. It?s not actually the third i...
