The Horse and His Boy

I finished reading The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis. It is the third (according to some it is the fifth book) book of the Narnia book series.

Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.

In this book, a boy named Shasta learns is to be sold off to another man. He would be treated badly as slave so he decides to run away. He steals a horse which is actually a talking horse from Narnia. The horse trains the boy how to ride a horse properly and set to go to Narnia. On the way, they meet a girl who is running away too. She also has a talking horse from Narnia. She was running away because she was been forced to marry an older man. So the four head to Narnia. On the way, they get separated. Shasta mistaken to be a prince. The real prince looks like him. Shasta escapes and meets up with the girl and the two horses. The girl finds out a plot to kill everyone in Narnia. So they decided to stop the plot from happening. And they do. Shasta learns he and the prince he met is actually his twin brother. The horses do make it to Narnia.

I loved this book. I’m taking a little intermission to read Tess on the Road by Rachel Hartman. It is YA fantasy book. I will be reading Prince Caspian after it.
