Going into this one, I didn’t remember anything from the last time I had read it. It has been so long! I liked how the Pevensie Siblings were still in Narnia at this time and part of the plot later on. So I am assuming this book takes place before The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe ended.
I enjoyed the talking horse Bree. He was a great character who helps Shasta escape. There definitely a good pair and of course, they help save Narnia. You can’t help but like them!
It always amazes me how C.S. Lewis packs so much plot and detail into these books because they aren’t very long. It’s impressive and beats many authors now a days.
Overall, I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the first two but it was still great nonetheless. I have been really enjoying my time rereading through this series after many years of not visiting this world.
