"Finally got around to finishing this in continuation of my read through of the entire Chronicles of Narnia series. I started off the book not very impressed, I read the story many years ago and so I had a vague remembrance of it and I remembered it in a pretty positive view. However, when I started it this time I was bogged down with boredom. I couldn't really place why I was board, I just wasn't engaged with the plot or characters. I wasn't enjoying my time reading the story. I was pretty confident it would be at best a three star read. But then I read the last 100 pages or so and I was floored because I had a great time reading. Shasta becomes much more likeable, honestly all of the protagonists do. The plot was engaging and I was excited to see what happened next. There was insightful and funny comments lacing the pages and the fight and wrap up at the end of the book was really satisfying. I liked how all of the encounters with the lion and cat throughout the book was resolved. I was just really impressed. I think I would give this a 3.5 stars if I could, but I'll be willing to give it a 4 here."
