More About the Author

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Format: Audio CD
Although set late in the reign of Caspian X (the Navigator), and thus being near the end of the series both in publication order and internal chronology, in some ways THE SILVER CHAIR would be a good place for a new reader to start, without re-covering a lot of material returning readers will have seen before. The viewpoint character, Jill Pole, is a complete newcomer to Narnia, and despite being accompanied by a more experienced schoolmate, she starts out with as unbiased a view of Narnia as any other character in the series, since she is separated from her companion Eustace Scrubb almost immediately.

Jill and Eustace are schoolmates at a very badly run boarding school - something the author knew a lot about from personal experience, though with a different set of horrors than Lewis himself went through. Eustace takes Jill into his confidence - he began standing up to the school bullies rather than sucking up to them this school year because he'd had some very strange experiences with magic during the holidays, though he hasn't time to explain very much before the two of them have to escape from a gang of the worst bullies, and flee through a door that unexpectedly opens into the Narnian world.

As is often the case, just as the two children were longing to escape into the Narnian world, that turns out to have been a sign that they were needed there. This time, the two of them are separated soon after their arrival thanks to some bad judgement on Jill's part. Consequently, when Jill meets Aslan for the first time and receives their instructions from him about the quest for which they have been called out of their own world, she does so alone and with no preconceptions about who the great lion is or what he's like.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Secret Spi on 20 April 2009
Format: Paperback
"The Silver Chair" is the penultimate Narnia story, chronologically. The Pevensie children are totally absent from this book and instead, the children from our world sent to Narnia on a quest are Eustace Scrubb, who we met in "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" and Jill Pole, a girl from Eustace's rather radical school.

The two children, who are not necessarily the best of friends at all times, are joined by a wonderfully morose character, Puddleglum the Marsh-Wiggle. The adventures they have on their search for King Caspian's lost son and heir seem more sinister and frightening than in previous books, so the comic relationships between the three add needed light relief.

A dank, chilly atmosphere pervades the book, with much of the action during winter and underground. The plot is probably tighter than the preceding book, with a clear quest and signs from Aslan to follow.

If anyone doubts the relevance of the Narnia books to today, just read what happened to the Head of the radical school, Experiment House: "...the Head's friends saw that the Head was no use as a Head, so they got her made an inspector to interfere with other Heads. And when they found she wasn't much good even at that, they got her into Parliament where she lived happily ever after." I think she must still be there!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Eustace and Jill, attempting to flee the bullies at their school and desperate for an escape from the misery of their situation, find themselves transported to Narnia. There they are given a mission by Aslan himself - to find Prince Rilian - son of Caspian - who disappeared many years ago.
They must team up with a Marshwiggle and find themselves in all sorts of scrapes and difficulties before they can achieve what they set out to do. They encounter giants and a strange lady dressed all in green, accompanied by a knight before they find the secret of the Silver Chair and hear the cry for help in Aslan's name!
Exciting and adventurous fun!

[Throughout the years, I have written a number of reviews that have never been published online on Amazon. These writings comprise two types of reviews: unfinished reviews, abandoned during various stages of composition, and completed reviews that for life reasons were never posted. Of the later type, back in September 2001 I wrote a cache of work, a full sixteen reviews of several different C. S. Lewis books which have never been released. I am publishing these reviews now for the first time in revised form, over a decade after they were initially written. Mike London 10-3-2012]

"The Silver Chair", in my opinion, is least like the Narnia series. It takes the previous conceptions of Narnia, and throws them out. We don't' stay much in Narnia, we go away from it. Everything is different in the book, and the feel and flavour is very different from the others. It is a remarkable quest story, a story I wish I had written.

"The Silver Chair" stands as one of the most important books in my own artistic vision. The spell Lewis weaves here has quite a different taste to it than any of the other Narnia novels. The element that really captured my own imagination is the possibilities of underground kingdoms. This concept has always had a particularly unusual effect on myself, causing a mixture of fear and love at the same time. One of my most distinct memories is watching an episode of the 1950s version of Superman. It was the very first episode, and there were little men coming up from out of the earth. It was very eerie to me when I saw it, and this eeriness applies to this novel as well.

I'm a writer also, and I've read all of the Narnia novels (several times). I have three personal favorites.
