    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 sexism too Little things scattered throughout the books Not terrible considering when it was written But still nothing I want soaking into my kid s psyche The best example of this is Ramandu s daughter Caspian meets her, and it becomes obvious that they re going to get married Let s just pass lightly over the fact that she s effectively being treated like a prize for him completing his quest and jump right into the fact that SHE DOESN T HAVE A NAME She s referred to as Ramandu s daughter through the entire book despite the fact that she has a larger part in the book That s fucked up, y all There s narrative issues too The children rarely solve their own problems Several times they re confronted by bad situations or make bad choices but then instead of having to deal with the consequences or figure out solutions, Aslan shows up and is all _ Then, under the weight of his disappointed dad eyes and they re filled with shame and realize they should stop being dicks That s not good storytelling That s some deus ex leo bullshit It s a good book, and I m fond of it But it s not perfect, and its flaws are large enough that they bear some serious consideration before you put it in front of your kids.

    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 have about this series is Reepicheep It could just be the way the mouse warrior was portrayed in the audiobook, but I swear I was about one step away from throwing him overboard.Audiobook CommentsI will murder Reepicheep with my bare hands if he says one word Other than that David Jacobi was a fabulous reader Blog Instagram Twitter

    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 a bit sad, though This is the time for the last goodbye, and I knew even if there should be , but it s enough in the story for the children to grow up and keep in their mind that this is the farewell.All in all, the chronicles of Narnia is worth reading when I have nothing to read It makes my head spin in a good way and it keeps me want to go back and be a kid again Courage, dear heart.

    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 Cambridge.A marvellous tale and well written as usual by C S Lewis, truly a 5 novel

    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 this series, there was a moralistic edge to the plot that served as a reminder of good behaviour for its young readership This rather preachy element is one that doesn t fit well with its contemporary readers, in my opinion, and, whilst not ruining my enjoyment of the series, isn t a factor a particularly appreciate.

    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 that, they would never be friends the same way again What Lucy really learned was that people are pissy bitches and one bad mood isn t them all the time Girls can insult your ugly sweater and still really sometimes secretly admire you I know that Eustace becoming a dragon and the process of becoming himself again was I loved that in the book it wasn t some pansy Be nice message Eustace was a jerk because he was afraid of everything, afraid to think for himself In the movie he learns to be what the cool kids want instead of just not being afraid to change What the Boo The be yourself message about Lucy and Caspian did not mesh with the be like everybody else message they inflicted on the audience about poor Eustace The kid who played Eustace was the only good actor in the film Lucy is an embarrassment Also inappropriate She did that wide eyed wonder grin when her cousin was stuck as a dragon What idiots let that one go by They made their heroine look like a bitch Okay, they made a lot of mistakes in the pretty bad Prince Caspian film He shouldn t have been old It was nothing to meet him again later on in his life if he s still a young man The stupid Susan romance Who cares when he meats Freudian slip the star chick if they are pissed he forgets about Susan I hated that movie It was pre school LOTR films battle scenes They got all wrong what were the good parts of the book.I know that Edmund admits to being a shit for his first Narnia visit This is not mentioned in the film I liked that about Edmund in the book.Nothing new here I always loathed Reepicheep He s the little thing that runs his big mouth so no one will underestimate him If he was really that good he wouldn t have to run his mouth He s also the biggest mouth peice for Aslan mania.The Bad stuff happens have faith anyway stuff I remember that The Last Battle is the most overtly religious book in the series and I managed to ignore the rest in the other books They upped the ante Am I a harder sell I don t like this I feel or less the same person as before I ll still read the kids and ya books that recognize the parts of you that you can carry on with you Not the bad taste for silly melodrama parts but the That happened and I can t pretend it didn t experiences Narnia was such a good part of my life The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was the first book I really remember reading I don t want it to be the bad part that I only pretended was good to get by.P.s I don t wanna be all Comic Book Guy, but it annoyed the effing hell out of me that Eustace s mom announces in the end that Jill Pole is here to see you Jill wasn t his friend before Eustace didn t have friends So annoying.Oh yeah I forgot to say what I thought about writing here while watching that dumb ass movie They really wasted a golden chance C.S Lewis made digs about the loss of freedoms for kids, school systems that babied kids and at the same time allowed fucked up shit to go on so they wouldn t Stifle anybody Kids today have no freedom Parents will call the cops on each other if they run around outside and play Yet here was Edmund and Lucy having to be shut in after they had lived it up as free thinking adults in Narnia Instead They waste it all by bamming audiences on the head about doing what Aslan wants That doesn t mesh with the good parts of the Narnia series that I remembered it to have.EDIT Lauren will be pissed at me for not mentioning the glow in the dark eevel green mist What the hell was that I don t remember that They should just let me write these things The BBC tv movies back in the day combined Voyage and Prince Probably because the actual plots were so thin That s why they should let me do it I d have made the whole thing a dragon eating its own skin off movie Prince Caspian would have been a refugee movie.Lauren really hated the actor who played the magician You know they are a nobody if they weren t in Harry Potter some exceptions allowed for LOTR actors.

    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 several new ones on the world of Narnia.A journey in the sea on a ship named Dawn Treader C S Lewis is a masterful author, very laconic but at the same time his words are utterly descriptive The thing with children s books is that they always make me feel nostalgic and give me this feeling we all had as children, I feel carefree.
