Need to Read #10: Silver Chair

Title: Silver Chair
Author: C. S. Lewis
Book blurb: NARNIA...where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans, where a prince is put under an evil spell...and where the adventure begins.
Eustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall, which, for once, is unlocked. It leads to the open moor...or does it? Once again Aslan has a task for the children, and Narnia needs them. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, they pursue the quest that brings them face and face with the evil Watch. She must be defeated if Prince Rillian is to be saved.
Quick endorsement: While VDT was my favorite Narnia book for many years, this one gradually edged into first place. The whole underground thing is fascinating, and the whole book displays Lewis’ amazing writing style.

I love the Silver Chair! It's actually my favorite Narnia book and I even tend to like Eustace and Jill better than the Pevensies (although you have to read VDT to get Eustace's story). Puddleglum is a favorite character of mine and the whole underground stuff is definitely fascinating! I love too how they have to remember the rules and everything about Aslan in that book. :)
