At its core, PRINCE CASPIAN is mostly about the feud between an uncle and a nephew, not all that different from HAMLET. Yet so much of it is tied up in long-winded descriptions of the lake scum floating on the water and the cliffs conveniently located on your left. None of it matters and, in my opinion, doesn't provide atmospheric qualities so much as it bogs down the flow of the narrative and inflates the word count unnecessarily. I didn't particularly like this foray into Narnia and it didn't entice me to make my way back. Unless you're already a fan of the series, I would not recommend PRINCE CASPIAN.
