The Voyage of the Dawn Treader The Dawn Treader will take you places you never dreamed existed NARNIA the world of wicked dragons and magic spells, where the very best is brought out of even the worst people, where anything can happen and most often does and where the adventure beginsThe Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries King Caspian has built it for his voyage to find the seven lords, good men whom his evil uncle Miraz banished when he usurped the throne The journey takes Edmund, Lucy, and their cousin Eustace to the Eastern Islands, beyond the Silver Sea, toward Aslan s country at the End of the World Time for a Christmassy reread Review later 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

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 NarniaDo you mean t There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he

lords of NarniaDo 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 downAlong 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 oneword
