Book: Prince Caspian
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a brilliant book. The second book by C.S.Lewis in The Chronicles of Narnia falls a little short. While there are a couple of scene that portray the awe, wonder, and fantasy I expect, much of it feels flat. I felt like I was being told a story this time instead of living it. During the duel at the end, I did think about my taichi sword training and whether or not I could actually apply it to a real sword fight. My guess is no.
I will continue to read the series in sequence (for the second time).
