The Silver Chair Jill and Eustace must rescue the Prince from the evil WitchNARNIAwhere owls are wise where some of the giants like to snack on humans where a prince is put under an evil spelland where the adventure beginsEustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall which for once is unlocked It leads to the open mooror does it Once again Aslan has a task for the children and Narnia needs them Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark they pursue the uest that brings them face to face with the evil Witch She must be defeated if Prince Rillian is to be saved In my current reread first time ever actually finishing the series The Silver Chair is the first book in the series that I did not read as a child or know the story of by seeing an adaptation To my somewhat surprise I very much enjoyed this addition to the series Although I do miss the Pevensies as well as other characters from the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe as well as Prince Caspian I really liked following Eustace and Jill on their own cool adventure through Narnia especially since we got to see even parts of the world that had not previously been explored in the earlier books It was an exciting and wholesome adventure of its' ownOne thing I will say though is that my opinion of C S Lewis and of the direction he takes his characters and stories in is very mixed however I'll go into much depth with that in my review for the last book The Last Battle which I'm already a good chunk into Ah the strange joys of Narnia How is a middle aged feminist nonbeliever supposed to feel about this contradictory volume?Pro Jill Pole is a strong active fun funny vigorous girl that any reader male or female will be happy to have as a protagonist Con Jill's old enough to be active but young enough not to be a sexual being Which is clearly the only reason Lewis is comfortable having her around becauseCon Once again Lewis only allows grown women as characters when they're scary evil beautiful and seductive in eual parts In this volume the villain is the brilliant ruthless ueen of the Underworld Pro Jill is a fully developed character who shows that kids can be strong and important without being paragons of virtue One of the lines I remembered all my life after reading this book as a child is her reply to Aslan when he asks her why she was standing so near the edge of a cliff and putting both herself and her friend in danger in the process I was showing off Sir I love how she says this without flinching She messed up and there's nothing to do but own itPro Because of moments like the above Jill is enjoyable to follow on her adventures than Lucy I love Lucy but she's cute and sweet and pretty much flawless Jill gets tired impatient sick to her stomach with fear sulky and unreasonably angry She also knows when to fight and when to run I can relate to thatCon This is the only full length story of Jill's adventures The Last Battle so does not count More about that later Like in another reviewCon uite aside from the relatively passive sexism of Lewis' pitting pre sexual girls against dangerously seductive full grown female villains he also displays active sexism in this book At the very end he makes a point of pointing out that the terrible incompetent Head of Jill's awful boarding school is a woman Literally And then the Head who was by the way a woman Really? Well that explains everything Pro Lewis does some of his best characterization in this book Minor spoiler At one point Jill Eustace and Puddleglum discover to their horror that the meat they've been eating was actually a talking beast Their separate reactions as they put down their forks are brilliantly describedJill who was new to that world was sorry for the poor stag and thought it was rotten of the giants to have killed him Eustace Scrubb who had been in that world before and had at least one Talking beast as his dear friend felt horrified; as you might feel about a murder But Puddleglum who was Narnian born was sick and faint and felt as you would feel if you found you had eaten a babyCon Once again Lewis backs the wrong horse historically speaking Jill and Eustace are together on this adventure because they go to the same school Yes Really Can you believe it? Boys and girls attending school together What's next???Pro It's kind of funny to think that someone as brilliant as Lewis could fall so cleanly into the losing camp on this issue Pro Lots of Aslan Con As a symbol of the Christian God he's not at his best here For instance he tells Jill at the beginning of her adventures Here on the mountain I have spoken to you clearly I will not often do so down in Narnia Even as a child and certainly now my first thought was Why? If you already accept divine inscrutability as necessary or at least inevitable this flies fine; if you don't this doesn't help Pro Puddleglum is one of the finest fantasy characters ever His name and his tells are Dickensian in their genius but he never falls into reflexive predictability He's a weird uirky deeply appealing heroPro Happy ending for every kid who's ever been bullied at schoolConclusion Once again Narnia is awesome no matter how old and skeptical you get “You would not have called to me unless I had been calling to you said the Lion” I am reading this series for the first time as an adult in publication order so this for me was book number 4 I enjoyed it just like the others definitely not a favourite even though I love C S Lewis's writing and I definitely recognize the value of this series as a classic and for the role it had in the development of the genre As for this particular book I truly really enjoyed only the chapter of the Silver Chair the rest was fine but not breathtaking A fairly good read The Silver Chair is a fascinating adventure story of the Chronicles of Narnia After my disappointment over The Voyage of the Dawn Treader I was a little apprehensive as to how I would receive it But all my fears were groundless as the story held my interest from the first chapter For the first time we don't meet the Pevensies Instead we meet Eustace returned to Narnia with Jill Pole a school friend of his Although one misses Pevensies the characters of Eustace and Jill who replace them do justice to the story and display enough bravery and courage I really enjoyed the writing in this story There was intrigue suspense and humour The minute and colourful description of the various places where the adventurers found themselves painted a true picture of the setting that one feels one is living in the story with all those characters Also there was underlying satire which was uite a new experience With this read I have finished six books of the Chronicles and the Silver Chair is my second favourite placed between The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian Looking forward to the final read in the series and to complete the Chronicles Probably the weakest so far but scraped 4 stars and still fun More tomorrow Right I have been thinking about this review all day It was the weakest of the books so far with what felt almost like a padded out story and I was thinking it would be a 3 star read That said i didn't bank on Puddleglum he was the real star of the book and added enough to make me give it 4 starsThe book features the Pevensie's cousin Eustace now a Narnian regular and a jolly good chap with a schoolfriend of his rescuing Prince Caspian's heir A fun romp made enjoyable by the appearance of Marsh Wiggles and the owls One of the best Puddleglum is perhaps my favorite Narnian character of all time I can't believe it took me so long to read this one SO GOOD also where is the movie The Silver Chair Chronicles of Narnia #4 C S LewisThe Silver Chair is a children's fantasy novel by C S Lewis published by Geoffrey Bles in 1953 It was the fourth published of seven novels in The Chronicles of Narnia 1950–1956; it is volume six in recent editions which are seuenced according to Narnian history تاریخ نخستین خوانش یکی از روزهای سال 2002 میلادیعنوان ماجراهای نارنیا 4 صندلی نقره ای جادویی؛ نویسنده سیاس لوئیس؛ مترجم شهناز انوشیروانی؛ تهران، محیط، 1376؛ در 184ص؛ شابک ایکس 96462461؛ عنوان روی جلد صندلی جاویی؛ موضوع داستانهای نویسندگان انگلیسی سده 20ممترجم امیر اقتداری؛ منوچهر کریم زاده؛ تهران، هرمی، کیمیا، 1379؛ در شش و 229ص؛ شابک 9647100086؛ چاپ سوم 1385؛مترجم پیمان اسماعیلیان؛ ویراستار شهرام رجب زاده؛ تهران، قدیانی، 1387، در 304ص؛ شابک 9789644178542؛ چاپ سوم 1394؛ مترجم محمدرضا شمس؛ تهران، پنجره، 1387، در 200ص؛ شابک 9789648890891؛داستان پیدا و نجات دادن «ریلین» پسر «شاه کاسپین» است؛ نقل از متن کتاب مدتهای درازی است که من، صدای آواز نشنیده ام یا رقص، و فشفشه ندیده ام؛ چرا باید اینطور باشد؟ همه فکر میکنند، من طلسم شده ام اگر میفهمیدم چرا این همه بار میکشم؟ خوشبخت بودم پایان ص 187کتاب ا شربیانی I'm just going to give a generic opinion of the whole seriesWe love themThe endOkay so maybe I'll tell you that we read them outloud to the kids almost 2 years ago So they were 5 going on 6 and 2 They all loved them and followed the plot and talked about the characters during their playWe're re reading them again now ages 8 4 and 2 and they're loving them even than the first time All I hear all day long is For Narnia and then they rush through the house swords drawn They have made Reepicheep figures out of pom poms They have conversations with the characters So Edmund what do you think about the suirrel doing such and so?I think this is a series of books that needs to be read over and over again
