Prince Caspian (No Spoilers)
I took the family to watch Prince Caspian on Sunday. It's been about ten years since I read the book, so I didn't have a distinct recollection of the story. But that turned out alright. I liked the movie about as much as I liked the book. Lots of windup for, at best, a two-base hit. I don't find Prince Caspian all that interesting of a character, and the children don't grow all that much either. So, for me, Prince Caspian was the somewhat diverting book that I read in between LWW and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The latter is my favorite book of the series. I'm looking forward to the release of that movie (I "think" next summer), but I'm also a bit concerned: the narrator has some of the best lines in the book vis-a-vis Eustace. The movies, so far, have not used any voice over (that I recall). So I don't know how, or if, the movie will deliver those lines. And the book wouldn't be half as good without those lines.
