Love these stories. I wish they had put more in the film. There are some interesting parts that never made it to the big screen. :(

I love Eustace, even though he is useless and irritating. And the little Dufflepods too. ( )

Recently finished reading this with my daughter. I think it has some of my favorite scenes from the Narnia chronicles in it (i.e. Eustace's de-dragonning, the beginning and very ends of the world and the dufflepuds. I also really liked the scene where they find the golden stream with one of the Narnian Lords at the bottom. However, the pacing was hard to take for my six year old. There are days and weeks at sea and

Reading the book highlights how abysmal the Disney movie is. Totally wrecked all the great parts of this book (though the pacing is much better!). ( )

Not sure when I'll be going on to the others but hopefully fairly soon. I'm teetering between a 3.5-4 stars for this one...I guess I'll just leave it at a 4 stars. ( )

Here is where I reveal my one true fault. I have not read all of the Narnia books. In conversation I always let people think that I have if they bring them up but it is because I am far too ashamed to look them in the eye and see the betrayal and sudden repulsion I know will be there. I will fix this some day! I adore the ones I read! I take this opportunity to formally apologise to all those who once felt they could place trust in me but now will never readily do so again. Yours in faith, etc. ( )

My memory of this entry in the Narnia series had been based entirely on the movie & as it turns out, this movie was the least faithful to the text! While there are some adventures, they are mostly disconnected. I did prefer the book's version of the Duffers & may have liked the entire book more if I hadn't had the movie plot in my head...

Chrissi Hart's reading of this one didn't seem up to the standard of her previous recordings, with some odd little halts at times. However, it is still a decent recording & her voice for Reepicheep in particular was good. ( )

As in many other of Mr. Lewis' books, one finds a strong poetic sense and awareness of the loveliness and mystery of a universe which cannot be wholly grasped by common sense.

First words
There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.
And then all the schoolboys joined in because they also liked processions and felt that the more noise and disturbance there was the less likely they would be to have any school that morning.
What awaited them on this island was going to concern Eustace more than anyone else, but it cannot be told in his words because after September 11 he forgot about keeping his diary for a long time.

Book description
Lucy and Edmund, with their dreadful cousin Eustace, get magically pulled into a painting of a ship at sea. That ship is the Dawn Treader, and on board is Caspian, King of Narnia. He and his companions, including Reepicheep, the valiant warrior mouse, are searching for seven lost lords of Narnia, and their voyage will take them to the edge of the world. Their adventures include being captured by slave traders, a much-too-close encounter with a dragon, and visits to many enchanted islands, including the place where dreams come true.
