''The Silver Chair'' - Book Review

Author: C. S. Lewis
Published: 1953

Genres: Novel, Adventure, Mystery, Fantasy

Rating: 4 out of 5


The Silver Chair is the fourth book (in publication order) in The Chronicles of Narnia.

Eustace Scrubb, whom we first met in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, is transported, along with his classmate Jill Pole, to Narnia. They are informed that King Caspian, whom the Pevensies helped to come to the throne in ''Prince Caspian'' and with whom Eustace traveled to the end of the world in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', is now an old man, and he has no heir. He had a son, Prince Rilian, but ten years ago, he had disappeared. Eustace and Jill now have the duty to find the lost prince. Aslan tells Jill some signs which they should follow in order to find the lost prince.

In this book, Eustace and Jill come across a variety of adventures. They come to know how the Prince had disappeared. Their companion in their adventures in Puddleglum, a Marsh-wiggle, a creature with long arms. 

''The Silver Chair'' has many new settings, and some new creatures are introduced. The readers get to know about the Underland. 

Puddleglum was such an interesting character! And I obviously liked Eustace and Jill.

The Silver Chair was such an enchanting, such a magical, such an entertaining novel! I loved it. I loved all of the adventures. My favorite chapter in this book was ''The Queen of the Underland'', because it was such an intense, such a suspenseful chapter!
