Speaking of Journeys

The Silver Chair
by C.S. Lewis

This book is also about a journey. It is not as emotional as the journey in Transamerica, but it is still a noble journey. Jill and Eustace, the children in the story, return to Narnia and are given the task by Aslan to find Prince Rilian and return him to Narnia. They join forces with a Marsh-Wiggle named Puddleglum who tries to keep them out of trouble. The kids encounter giants, a witch, and underground people. The story is great, although more predictable than any of the other books so far. It was way too predictable, in my opinion. The element of surprise was zero.
