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 more difficult! What the fuck

The strongest of the three "Chronicles of Narnia" books I've read so far, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" opens with a wonderful first line: "There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it." Eustace, a cousin to the four Pevensie children, who the first two books focused on, is the designated asshole in this entry, taking up the mantle carried by Edmund in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and Susan in "Prince Caspian."

I've complained about this trope in my other

The new movie version? Well, I fell asleep halfway through, so I can't swear that I remember all of this correctly. I think that they went off in a boat to find the evil green mist that was kidnapping people in City of Lost Children.

My favorite Narnia book so far. Lucy, Edmund, and their cousin ("called Eustace Clarence Stubb, and he almost deserved it") get accidentally transported onto King Caspian's ship, which is starting a journey to the eastern sea. The book is mostly just little episodes where they visit different islands, all of which are very different and very interesting. As I drew closer to the end of the book, I was fully prepared to give it five stars. BUT THEN came the ending. Specifically, one thing Aslan to ...more

This book has what I would say is definitely one of the World's Top Five Best Opening Lines: "There was a boy named Eustace Clarence Scrubbs, and he almost deserved it." Eustace is an awesomely bitchy character who gets satisfyingly smacked down a couple of times by Ultimate Children's Fiction Dreamboat Prince Caspian. Lucy and Edmund feature prominently, as well as an AWESOME character, Reepicheep the valiant warrior mouse. I freakin' LOVE Reepicheep. This was always my favorite of the Narnia b ...more

There are few books that I've read that I love more than this book. However, if I had to choose a movie adaptation to punch in the face - it would be this one.
Deborah Markus
I loved this book, both as a child and again as an adult, because it takes me on the kind of adventure I'd love but know I can never have: a long, long sail (cool) into magic lands (über cool).

It's also sprinkled with wonderful, memorable quotes and moments. I loved the bit where Lucy is looking down into the water and sees the mermaid, who looks up just in time to see Lucy looking at her. They can't speak and they're separated almost before they can lock eyes, but it's a moment neither of them

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the fifth book in the Chronicles of Narnia series. Here a reader finds Edmund and Lucy Pevensie forced to spend their summer away from their parents and siblings with their uncle Harold and Aunt Alberta. And while neither Edmund or Lucy look forward to their visit with family, the worst part is having to live with their cousin, Eustace Scrub: an intellectual bully, who wishes nothing more than to torment them as much as

Probably my least contested favourite in the Narnia series. I had such a literary crush on Caspian, and I'd got a lot fonder of Edmund, too. And of course, it has Reepicheep! And a voyage to the end of the world, involving a lot of marvels along the way. Eustace, of course, is a turn-off at first -- you can't help but think he doesn't deserve to be in Narnia, and to be resentful that he could go and you can't -- but watching his character development is rewarding. He and Edmund are among the few ...more

2.5 stars. I really should have read these books when I was younger. As much as I hate to slap a two star rating on this unquestioned classic of fantasy literature the truth is that I thought it was somewhere above "Okay" but not quite to "I like it" and so I settled on 2.5 stars.

My problem with the book really stems from the fact that it is more YA than I am used to reading. This is certainly not an inherent flaw in the story as it was written for children but it did affect my enjoyment of it.

The story provides great messages and is very interesting. I think the Narnia Series is one that children should read. They don't just let your imagination run wild but they also teach you morals and values. I'm not that young of course, yet I enjoy reading such books because it even teaches adults certain things that we tend to forget as we grow older and get caught up in our lives. Two messages which appealed to me are below:

a)Extraordinary things happen to extraordinary people and it could be

I read all the Narnia books as a child, and am just rereading them now.

I like this much better than Prince Caspian. For one thing, Caspian himself is more active; there is also a neat plot with really cool, original creatures and places. Plus, Aslan is less annoying, though his reference to himself existing in the real world "under another name" is pretty opaque. In all fairness, though, I totally didn't get it when I was a kid. I never realized the metaphorical Christian nature of the Narnia bo

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis is one of the books in his series, the Chronicles of Narnia in which Christianity is portrayed through various fantasy creatures. God, for instance is portrayed as a talking Lion. What a wonderful series! What child hasn’t climbed into a closet and explored the back cracks in hope of finding an entrance to a new and exciting world after reading this book? I used to sit in a closet with the door closed and a flashlight reading my favorite books aft ...more

Let me start by saying that The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is my favorite from the Chronicles of Narnia, by far. Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for Odyssey-like stories or maybe it's because the entire book was just fun from start to finish.

Yes, it's awesome, but like all the Narnia books I've read so far I do have some issues/observations:

- Is it just me or there's always one designated "asshole" character? In this case, it's Eustace.
- If there's a Christian allegory here, I definitely didn't

As always, I somehow manage to get wrapped up in the Narnia stories. I don't know how or why, but I'm always curious as to what the next chapter will be.
This felt to me, more like a collection of short stories than anything else. Each few chapters starts a new adventure, and there are very, very few plots lines that hold over. And the few that do have little weight to the current "adventure."
Nonetheless, the adventures that are embarked on are beautiful and intriguing, and the various islands ar

My favorite book of this series. It is a fantastic read that brings back nearly all the characters from "Prince Caspian". I can't recommend this book enough.

The third work in The Chronicles of Narnia is one of the better novels in the series in my view. Firstly, it has a ship. Secondly, it continues on with four of the better characters from the previous book (Reepicheep, Caspian, Lucy and Edmund). Thirdly, it adds in a new character who is a different flavour of character: Eustace Scrubb. While Edmund began his life in the world of Narnia as the rebel, Eustace exists as the child who believes he knows more about the fantastic than anyone else. Ther

I’m having a hard time using my words to put this review together, because I had quite a few issues with this story. The easiest way is for me to list them, so here I go:

1) Zzzzzzz- The story was rather dull- I’ve seen the Narnia movies, so I sort of knew what to expect. Admittedly, Dawn Treader was my least favorite of the movies, so I expected to feel the same way about the book. The point is I went with low expectations when I picked it up and I was pretty much right to do so. The

On the High Seas and at the Edge of Narnia
(A Book Review of C. S. Lewis’s The Voyage of the Dawn Treader)


Edmund and Lucy, the young ones in the Pevensie siblings are in for a rotten luck. While their father and mother with their sister Susan are on a trip in America, and their older brother, Peter, busy preparing for his exams, they are to spend the summer break holed up in the house of their uncle and aunt which only means putting up with their insufferable cousin Eustace Clarence Scrub.

I am a fan of The Chronicles of Narnia. I can go on and on raving about this wonderful series and how it has affected my perspective, yes, even as an adult. For me, the Narnia Chronicles is more than just a children’s story. I have read the complete set just this year, shame on me, but it doesn’t change the fact that even though written under the tone and style of a children’s fantasy story, the moral lesson applies to all ages. I love to think that the childlike voice of the story adds to its a ...more

Harish Kumar Sarma Challapalli
Not a very great book!! With great difficulty I moved ahead with this book!! This is my least favorite of all the books among the narnia series!! The ending was more than disappointment!! It took a book for the characters to know that there is no end to the world!! Seriously, I didn't understand what the writer wanted to tell us with this book!!

I recommend all future readers to not read this part of the series and u may happily proceed with the rest

I don't think I'm going to finish this one it's rambling and boring. It seems really thrown together as a story everything is flat and none of the episode develop the cardboard characters or blossom into interesting asides. I did like the dialogue of the dufflepuds - all agreeing with their leader – which I thought was a nice gimmick, other than that it feels like an endless sequence of one note ideas.
Steven Wedgeworth
Lewis' version of The Odyssey. So good. So funny. This one has all of my favorite characters in it. Reepicheep- respect! Eustace is the great liberal turned human. And the Dufflepods are hilarious.

*Minor spoilers if you haven't read the book*

I think that this has to be my favourite book in the series so far. Although most of the story takes place on the sea, the diverse cast of characters and C.S. Lewis' description of Narnia keep things interesting. The book takes a while to get going, and I only really became interested in Caspian's voyage after the visits to Dragon Island and Deathwater because only then were the character's lives really in danger. Having said that, Aslan always coming

There are a lot of firsts in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader , the 5th book in the chronology of The Chronicles of Narnia (hm sounds redundant) and the 3rd book I have read in the series. This is the first time Peter and Susan are not a part of the story, the first time Caspian and his crew have set out to sea to look for the seven lords that his uncle Miraz sent away when he stole the throne, the first time they ventured out to the far east and the first time we mee

Reading the first three books in the Narnia series, I can see Lewis on a pretty steep learning curve. He really seems to find his voice by writing, and every book he tries something a little more complicated.

The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a lot of fun. There are still some plot issues, though it does better than either of its predecessors in keeping up tension and excitement. The problem is that when the journey takes place on a series of unrelated islands, the plot can just seem like one dam

-A bit boring, but still quite enjoyable. I loved the addition of Eustace (Lucy and Edmund's cousin) — he was a miserable git but he still somehow managed to be likeable… The highlight for me were Eustace's diary entries, they were hilarious.

-The story was okay — some parts were entertaining whilst other parts were dull. Lucy, Edmund and Eustace magically end up on Caspian's ship after looking at a picture of a boat (as you do). Caspian and the gang want to find a bunch of old Narnian lo

Lewis' take on The Odyssey and Pilgrim's Progress
10 October 2010

I don't really want to compare this book with the movie too much namely because I am glad that they are turning these wonderful books into film and don't want to put anybody off seeing the movie. Personally I do hope that they do go on and make the rest of the books into movies, but with that said, the movie and the book do contrast with each other in that the movie is a lot more action orientated with a theme that holds it togethe

“It isn't Narnia, you know," sobbed Lucy. "It's you. We shan't meet you there. And how can we live, never meeting you?"
"But you shall meet me, dear one," said Aslan.
"Are -are you there too, Sir?" said Edmund.
"I am," said Aslan. "But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.”
