The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis

A young boy named Shasta and a talking horse he calls Bree run away toward Narnia. They are joined along the way by another talking horse and a young girl. When they bump into a group of Narnians, Shasta is mistaken for a prince. After learning information about an impending attack, Shasta sets out to warn those in danger.

Most of the book was interesting and I wanted to know what was going to happen. Parts dragged along. On occasion I just didn’t care about the characters I should have. I found Aslan to be annoyingly preachy on occasion, like Lewis tried too hard to make it obvious that he was the Christ character. The Horse and His Boy is worth reading once, but it’s probably not going to be one I ever reread again.
