5.0 von 5 Sternen Perhaps the best of the Narnian Chronicles, 21. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
It is an interesting observation that many people who do not care for The Chronicles of Narnia as a whole, nevertheless like The Horse and His Boy or at least find it the "least objectionable" of the lot. Conversely, there are those who adore the entire Chronicles of Narnia, but who like The Horse and His Boy the least. Perhaps both positions say something about the slightly different flavor this book carries compared to the other six Narnian books. I happen to hold to a third position of liking the whole series and finding The Horse and His Boy the best. Perhaps it's because of the story, or perhaps it's the eastern characters and religions, or the talking animals, or Lewis's humor, or all of the above, but I liked this Narnian Chronicle the most. I hope you will enjoy it as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great story(for adults, too)!, 31. Juli 2000
You probably already know that C.S. Lewis wrote seven "Chronicles of Narnia"; while it's hard(and really not necessary)to choose a "best" in the series, this may be it. "The Horse and his Boy"(wonderful title)is a rollicking, breathlessly fast-paced adventure, with each character-both villains and heroes-completely believable and multi-faceted-especially Bree, the talking war-horse. And if you're new to C.S. Lewis' work, rest assured his fantasies are as far from "cute" as you can get; his protagonists always have quite a lot of tough adventures they have to endure, sometimes in the form of violent battles(though they never got too violent for an 11 year old at her first reading). Wonderful language, incredible imagination, characters who become friends-what more could you want? I defy any reader to be disappointed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen So-so..., 9. Juni 2005
This is the third volume (chronologically) in The Chronicles of Narnia (after The Magician's Nephew; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and before Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; The Last Battle).
In this book we meet Shasta, a young boy who's been raised by Arsheesh, a poor fisherman far south in Calormen. One day comes a stranger on a strong warhorse, although it soon appears that this is a tyrannic Tarkaan who wants to buy Shasta and make him a slave. But his horse is actually Bree (does that name ring a bell?), a talking horse from Narnia, who come night, decides to gallop home to freedom, taking Shasta along.
While on the run across the desert, they meet a girl named Aravis and her talking mare Hwin, who's also fleeing, but from her future marriage with Ahoshta Tarkaan the vizier.
Their first stop will be the city of Tashbaan, where Shasta is mistaken for Corin, King Lune of Archenand's son. There he'll also make the acquaintance, among others, of Queen Susan, whom we met in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and learn that she's also about to marry Rabadash, the mighty Tisroc of Calormen's son, but doesn't want to.
Later, Shasta will become a hero by warning King Lune of an imminent attack by both disappointed bridegrooms.
My opinion on this book is so-so. Again, I think Avaris and Shasta's tumultuous adventure is something that can really appeal to a younger audience but, this makes me feel sorry, I personally just failed to get into it. Mark you, I still think I'm going to read the Chronicles of Narnia to my kids when I have some... I'm sure they'll enjoy them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My personal favourite; and, I think, the best, 1. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Stories where characters from our world travel to a fantasy world are common but very rarely work ... even in the Narnia books, the transit usually feels artificial ("The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and "The Magician's Nephew" are of course exceptions). So it's good that Lewis wrote one book set entirely within the Narnian world. The heat and dust and wealth of Calormene, and the cool mist of Archenland, and the desert between them, are allowed to exist by themselves. (It's set entirely outside Narnia itself, which is also all to the good.)
But the true value of this book lies in its central character. Shasta is the most sympathetic of all of Lewis's child protagonists. His weaknesses and strengths are his, and not arbitrary authorial injections. Shasta's meanest acts, as well as his most courageous, are entirely believable.
The last three Narnia books, of which this is one, were all interesting departures from the formula established in the first four; so it would be as well to read these four first, in order to be familiar with the theme of which this is a variation. When I first the Narnia books I thought "The Horse and His Boy" was the driest of the lot. Had I read them in the proper order I think I would have been quicker to realise my mistake.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Addition to LION is Perfect in Itself!, 25. Februar 2000
NARNIA...the magical world created by Aslan, the noble Lion, where the adventures begin and dreams come true....
Now as Bree and his friend Shasta set out to Narnia, they join forces with Avaris and Hwin and discover that, because Queen Susan will not marry Prince Raddabash, Raddabash himself and an army of well-trained men are about to invade Narnia! Now the party must run like the wind to save the freedom of the land they wish to run to for their own freedom.
The third CHRONICLE OF NARNIA is just as great as the other two with appearences by Edmud, Lucy, and Susan Prensieve, three of the four wonderful English children we have come to love from THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE, plus a whole host of new friends to love and remember for all of the time of our world...and all of the time of the world of Narnia.
Also Reccomended: The Other CHRONICLES OF NARNIA HOLES HARRY POTTER series MARY POPPINS series ROALD DAHL's books & Many More!

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Horse and His Boy, 10. Dezember 1999
Von 
The Hosre and his Boy by C.S. Lewis, is a highly imaginitive book. It is a story about a boy named Shasta and Bree, a talking horse. The two want to reach Narnia and leave their slaved lives so badly they can taste it. When they escape, they are bound to find a young girl named Aravis and another talking horse named Hwin who are also making their way to Narnia. As they join together and try to fight their way across the scolding desert, their journey has just begun. Will they reach Narnia? C.S. Lewis made the book so compelling that I couldn't put it down. In a waay that he made me get into the story with a lot of detail and voice. I never expected the book to be so good, but time just flew by! It made me ask myself questions and got me thinking about what was going to happen next. In conclusion, The Horse and His Boy is an overall, fun, riveting book and I highly reccomend this book for everyone who loves imagination.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Take the journey, 23. Juli 2000
Ok, before you even bother reading my review, buy the book (I'll wait here).
I hope you bought it. If you haven't, let me tell you why you should: The Horse And His Boy is an outstanding story. And that's not all-you can read it without having read any of the other Narnia books; not that you'd want to do that. All the Narnia books are wonderful.
The Horse And His Boy follows the adventures of Bree (a talking horse) and Shasta (a slave boy) who run away from their masters and journey to the magical land of Narnia. Along the way they meet a nobleman's daughter, another talking horse, a king and a queen, and a very special Lion (he's not a tame lion you know).
I love this book. I love all the Narnia books. C.S. Lewis is a great writer (now in glory). However, heed this warning: this book is only for children and those adults who are old enough to love fairy tales again. I hope that means you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The quest to warn Narnia and to find one's origin., 22. Juni 1999
A young peasant boy (with a mysterious past) named Shasta and a talking horse named Bree escape their oppressive land to reach Narnia. They combine forces with a noble girl and her talking horse and discover a plot to conquer Narnia and they are all determined to warn Narnia. In other publications, Lewis had stated that his children's fantasies were just stories, without hidden meanings (I'll always wonder if he said that with tongue in cheek). Yet, one can easily view the lion Aslan as creator, counselor, and savior. This is much more apparent in some of the other volumes in the series. This was the fifth book published in the series and, in my opinion, should be the fifth book read (although others suggest that it be the third book read).

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Amazing book, 10. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
C.S. Lewis is a genius, and this is one of the best out of the chronicles. I love this book, because it gives you a better understanding of how horrible Calormen was. In this story a young boy who was adopted by a Calormene fishermen escapes to Narnia with a talking horse Bree. On their dangerous journey, they meet a Tarkheena named Aravis and her horse Hwin. They are on an amazing adventure and have to face the challenges of getting through the busy city of Tashbaan and crossing the desert. Their most difficult challenge is to get to Archenland before the Calormen army to warn the king about their surprise attack. This book introduces new characters and has the lovable old ones. I recommend this book to anyone who can read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Use your time wisely..., 7. Mai 2000
Having 40 minutes each way to work every day allows me the opportunity to listen to this extremely entertaining and well done adaptation of C S Lewis's Narnia series. While the "Magician's Nephew" is my favorite, this book is right behind it.
I have all of the available Audio CD's in this series and have listened to each of them several times. They also make good companions on long trips and plane flights.
Each one of these is superbly done. The best part is that you don't have to keep switching tapes like you do with the Audio tape series.
I highly recommend these CD's to you and hope that you 'Use your time wisely' and buy these audio CD versions for your library and family!
