This book is up there with The Magician's Nephew for me in this series. As a whole I really enjoyed this book. Eustace and Reepicheep had me laughing frequently. The adventures on the different islands were very well thought out and interesting to follow. I really appreciated the lessons that were scattered throughout. Our kids also enjoyed this book and talked through it with us.
What I did not like was the ending. It was very anticlimactic and abrupt after all they went through to get where they were. It was a big let down.
Aside from the last 2 chapters, it is my 2nd favorite of the Narnia books. I would recommend this as a food fun read.
4.5 stars for this book.
