This is probably my favorite of the Chronicles It takes place during the Golden Age of Narnia with the Pevensies reigning in their prime although the story is actually set in the countries to the south of Narnia which provides for a rather different feel to much of this novel I always find the visual imagery captivating riding across the moors at night entering the towering city of Tashban spending a night among the tombs of the ancient kings

Lewis S meet and join forces Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives they soon find themse. I feel really guilty about loving this book as much as I do I loved it as a kid and I love it now and there is just so much wrong with it The xenophobia is positively racist by page 5 we re already hearing the first of many references to the fact that the residents of Narnia are considered by the residents of their southern neighbor Calormen to be fair and whiteaccursed but beautiful barbarians The Calormenes on the other hand are nothing but walking Middle Eastern stereotypes They wear turbans and have long beards and speak in overblown wise old sayings like Has not one of the poets said Natural affection is stronger than soup and offspring precious than carbuncles This aspect of the story is ridiculously inexcusably bad As I ve mentioned in reviews of other Narnia books Lewis seems to take great pride in backing the wrong horse at every possible social andor historical point and boy howdy does he blow it here He puts his last dollar down on good old colonialist Hey look Savages If only they had a civilized country to tell them what to do This should not be taken as me buying into moral relativism and excusing the very real sexism and lack of democracy running rampant through the real Middle East by the way It s me thinking that those weren t exactly the things that bothered Lewis about that regionSo knowing all that how can I possibly enjoy this bookI cringe at times but I do Lewis has some of his most memorable lines and greatest moral triumphs in this story For instance I once wrote an article and later created an e card featuring this terrific lineIf you do one good deed your reward usually is to be set to do another and harder and better oneIt s true It s one of the horrible unfairnesses of life but there it is And when you see life in those terms you re better able to bow your head to the deeds that are your lot It isn t fair It just isI also love when Hwin the gentle nervous motherly talking horse speaks up to Bree another talking horse when he insists they should take a break before setting out on a march Time is short and the enemy is almost at the gate but he wants a snack and a rest and a rubdown first More than that he thinks he needs them P please said Hwin very shyly I feel just like Bree that I can t go on But when Horses have humans with spurs and things on their backs aren t they often made to go on when they re feeling like this and then they find they can This is true both morally and physically How often do we get to what we think is the breaking point the point where we simply Can NOT Go on And then if we don t give in but push ourselves a little harder we learn the difference between what we think we need and what we re really capable of Because of course Hwin turns out to be right and Bree s wrongness almost ruins everythingI didn t understand this when I read it for the first time but I remembered it And now I think about it all the time whether I m running a hill or writing a few words or any words at all on a day I could have sworn I was too tired to get some writing doneThere are too many outstanding examples like this to resist And as always Lewis nails the little moments we can all relate to even if we ve never uite experienced them Like when Shasta waiting anxiously for his friends alone in the dark among some ancient tombs hears a terrible noise After almost jumping out of his skin he realizes it s a distant horn blowing for the closing of the city gates Don t be a silly little coward said Shasta to himself Why it s only the same noise you heard this morning But there is a great difference between a noise heard letting you in with your friends in the morning and a noise heard alone at nightfall shutting you outAnd then later when the two main character children Shasta and Aravis are riding across the desert On again trot and walk and trot jingle jingle jingle sueak sueak sueak smell of hot horse smell of hot self blinding glare headache And nothing at all different for mile after mileSuch brilliantly understated word painting Oh and one last passage a short one and one of my favorites everOne of the drawbacks about adventures is that when you come to the most beautiful places you are often too anxious and hurried to appreciate themSo yes this book is bad And yes I love it Because it s great too
