"Prince Caspian"

Jeffrey Overstreet has a roundup of links for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. It seems the movie is very different from C.S. Lewis' book.

Peter Chattaway reviewed the film for Christianity Today. He concludes:

Prince Caspian is a reasonably enjoyable and diverting bit of entertainment, and it may satisfy people who have been waiting for a worthy successor to the movie version of The Lord of the Rings but felt the previous Narnia movie wasn't quite it. And if it lacks Lewis' message, oh well, with any luck, it will turn people on to the book, which is where the real magic lies.

  1. I was surprised to find that the details of Prince Caspian have completely escaped me. It's right there with The Horse and His Boy. I loved the books, but the ones that stick out in my mind most are The Magician's Nephew, The Last Battle, and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
