It feels odd to mark this book as anything less than five stars It was a huge part of my childhood.What s , this book is part of the reason I m a decent public speaker these days I joined forensics because this was the book that was being used for extemporaneous reading I didn t even know what forensics was when I started, just that I liked the book And there are things I like here Good things It s a fun adventure story There are cool settings Action Tension The different nature of the islands is cool There s mystery Magic Wonder The character of Reepicheep alone boosts this book by a full star The character of Eustace is better than I remember him being, too It s nice to see a kid who is a total dick learn that there s consequences to his actions, then have a redemption arc in a kid s book But reading this book to my little boy made me confront a lot of the problems in the book There are slavers in the early chapters, which is something I didn t remember And a topic I wasn t sure I wanted to introduce to my kid at the age of 6 There s a fair chunk of se
There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it. My absolute favorite quote in the entire book.In the latest installment, Lucy, Edmund and their cousin Eustace were having a bit of a tiff when they were suddenly pulled into a ship painting Apparently, you can get to Narnia just about any which way They land on Prince King Caspian s ship, where we meet almost an entirely new cast of characters setting sail to find the seven lost lords of Narnia Do you mean to say, asked Caspian, that you three come from a round world round like a ball and you ve never told me It s really too bad for you Because we have fairy tales in which there are round worlds and I have always loved them Have you ever been to the parts where people walk about upside down Along the way, they have oodles and oodles of adventures anywhere from exploring mysteriously magical islands to Eustace accidentally turning into a dragon Adventures are never fun while you re having them. I love how we as always get to experience C S Lewis s sage wisdom through his little asides throughout the book One of the most cowardly things ordinary people do is to shut their eyes to facts. The only true gripe I h
Adventures are never fun while you re having them The pace of this book was kind of slow for me, I spent seven days for the first half of this book Then when the adventure comes, everything just gets better and better I enjoyed how The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe vibes, even though it reminded me of some parts of Pirates of the Caribbean One of the most cowardly things ordinary people do is to shut their eyes to facts The ideas were flowing, especially the mysterious feelings that got me chilled when the children are on the ship sailing to rescue and discover something they haven t seen before That s just amazing considering this book was written before CGI has been well developed I can t imagine how Lewis created such imaginative images in his head and made people see it clearly.The ending was
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Chronicles of Narnia, 3 , C.S Lewis The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a high fantasy novel for children by C S Lewis, published by Geoffrey Bles in 1952 The Voyage features a second return to the Narnia world, about three years later in Narnia and one year later in England, by Edmund an
For some reason I enjoyed this the most of all the chronicles so far It was I felt the best story, certainly for some reason the most emotional Although there were few talking animals compared to all the previous books, there was the glorious Reepicheep, and he just steals the show.The tension builds all the way through as Prince Caspian aided by Lucy, Edmund and useless Eustace , together with his loyal crew and Reepicheep hunt the seven Lords banished by Caspian s evil Uncle Miraz..Without giving the game away, the Dawn Treader returns eventually to Narnia with some additions to the crew and some losses, as the 2 Pevensie s and Eustace now no longer useless return with the help of Aslan to his parent s house in Cambri
This is my fourth journey into the fantastical lands of Narnia, as I have chosen to read the series in chronological rather than publication order.This started rather poignantly for me, as the story opens with two of the Pevensie siblings returning to Narnia, with their cousin Eustace in tow Without the elder Pevensie children I initially felt like some of the earlier allure was lost for me, as it acted as a reminder that we all reach an age where we grow up and magic refuses to become a possibility I quickly forgot my reservations and was once again swept away by the wonderment and awe this series inspires, however.The children find themselves thrown from this world into the ocean that borders the Narnian lands The nearby ship, the Dawn Voyager, quickly hoists them on board and the children are happily reunited with characters from the previous book, King Caspian and Reepicheep the talking and quarrelsome mouse The crew are venturing into the perilous unknown seas with the ambition of discovering about their world and ending their journey by hopefully venturing into Aslan s country.I adored getting to explore of this fantastical world It added an element of adventure and highlighted Lewis spectacular world building artistry This seemed to read almost like a series of connected short stories, as each island they landed on had a tale relating to it that ended as the crew disembarked.As with every other story in thi
My BFF thinks this book is boring but I disagree I really love it All of the little islands they visit hold an amazing story I just can t believe the movie wrecked this beautiful adventure so Kellyn Roth, I knew that the new film version of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was going to be bad I did not know that it was going to be that retarded that I d question my faith in my own taste Not that I don t like retarded stuff But boring too Ouch Was the book that bad I don t remember all of it It s been years since I ve read it Lauren, you re never picking the movie ever again.A video game version of the movie would be better than the movie At least it would be difficult What the fuck was up with the swords Was that ALL there was to it I seem to remember there was Hey, there s the lord s sword Pick it up There were all these old lords with ZZ Top beards and no one bust out into She s got legs I guess they forgot how to use them when they were asleep for that long I seem to remember there was to the lords than that I seem to remember that Caspian learned than a trite Be your own man message relating to his hero worship of the dad he didn t know the movie seems to forget that he didn t know his dad There was than gripping the flaccid swords of old men and daddy never touched me as a child Wasn t there The looks thing What the Lucy didn t perform a spell to look beautiful like Susan I m enough of a girl that I thought Well, she s not THAT pretty She used it to eavesdrop She found out that her friend said something she didn t mean about her behind her back Because she did t
Having read the first book back in Christmas and feeling confused about the reading order I ll say that this was a very enjoyable and easy to read children s book I m still struggling to find out who the reading order of Narnia is I ve seen that this is either the 2nd or the 5th book but then again I ve seen it being named the 3rd book I m just going to read it however I want and hope it ll all be fine At least, I don t there was any missing detail from the book, so that must be a good thing.As to why I gave this 3 stars is because I found it less adventurous than the first one, I felt this one was a bit rushed and yes that s the way children s books usually are but it was a bit too much for me I loved the characters, although some of the characters of the first book were missing, but we had a new one on the children side, and seve
