The Silver Chair - C.S. Lewis

This is the Thirty-eight in my one-book-at-a-time bookshelf.

This is the third in the Prince Caspian cycle (a mini-series within a series) and whilst he isn't the central character he continues to be the thread that holds the series together.

I am particularly fond of the character Puddleglum (a marsh-wiggle) who sits along Eeyore and Marvin the Paranoid Android as an inspired doleful character to provide contrast and edification to the other characters.

The title is also inspired, though I can't tell you why. There is something profound about it and its use, if you wish to look for deeper meaning in the story, or you can just enjoy the book for the great story that it is.
