prince caspian


i don't think after this movie {just came out here}, the actor who plays prince caspian, ben barnes will ever be able to have a 'normal' life again. think what happened to orlando bloom after the lord of the rings and it will be very much the same as tweens and girls everywhere will have their hearts a flutter for their new prince.

besides the whole thing about prince caspian being a total cutie, the movie fails to disappoint. you never notice that its just over two hours long and i found myself not wanting it to end which is always a plus. it has a bit of everything- romance, action, great music of characters that manage to wedge a way into your hearts.

this movie has inspired me to finally to pick up the narnia books as i've never read them before. i'm doing it a bit out of order and starting w/'the voyage of the dawn treader' first {its the next one to come out in 2010} and then finishing off the rest of them when i can. in the mean time, i'm actually really looking forward to switching off and dreaming of faraway lands & talking animals.

I can't believe you have never read the narnia books! It's been a long time since I read them, this post made me want to go back and read them again.

i'm reading these right now and they are a lot of fun. i just started the last book the other day. they are really fast reads, but i've been such a slacker lately. i think the dawn treader was my favorite so far. i still need to see this movie!!!!

Sherrie, just finished Dawn Treader. I really loved the parts about the magic book and the lake of lilies the best.
