“Wouldn't it be dreadful if some day in our own world, at home, men start going wild inside, like the animals here, and still look like men, so that you'd never know which were which.” 

The fourth book in the Narnia series, Prince Caspian is one of the most memorable ones, with all the classics of a fairytale. An evil uncle, plotting for the throne, and a young prince seeking help in what’s left of the mythical part of his kingdom. 

As a child, Prince Caspian was one of my favorite books, and I adored the movie as well. Rereading it now, I’m beginning to think the only reason I liked it this much was because Prince Caspian was played by Ben Barnes in the movie. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the others, and I can’t quite pinpoint why. It was still enjoyable to read a book so beloved in my childhood, but standing alone it was a bit dull. The best part in my opinion is the fact that it’s the last book in which all Pevensie siblings are all together. The story in my mind simply didn’t have enough going on to be worth my attention.
