The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis: Book Review

No comments

My Review

My Rating: 2/5

One of these stars is for the worldbuilding aspect of The Horse and His Boy by C. S. Lewis – we saw more of Narnia and the lands beyond as well as a little from the kings and queens we know from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

The second star is for the characters of Shasta and Bree – they were lovely. 

Everything else in this fantasy book was boring. Yes, there are a lot of issues with this book when it comes to race and gender, but I’m not going to get into that – many people have done already. 

I want to focus on how boring The Horse and His Boy was. Even Aslan was boring!! He just sauntered up, waved his hands (paws) and everything was fixed. You know what? It was so boring I can’t remember what I got bored about.

If you skip The Horse and His Boy when reading The Chronicles of Narnia, you’re not missing out on anything at all.
