Summary

"Stop it!" cried Eustace. "It's some silly trick you are playing! Ow!" A great cold salt splash had broken right out of the frame and they were breathless from the smack of it, as well as being wet through.

Lucy and Edmund, stuck with their awful cousin Eustace, suddenly find themselves in a picture of a sailing ship, the Dawn Treader, and realise they have been drawn back into the land of Narnia. They are reunited with old friends, the young King Caspian and Reepicheep, the mouse on a voyage of discovery to the End of the World.

This was the third book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the fifth book in the series.

Through The Picture

What made the experience of listening to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 3 the most enjoyable?

This book just has you enthralled right from the introductory paragraphs.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 3?

At the beginning when the picture came to life and they were dragged through it.

What about Derek Jacobi’s performance did you like?

I felt that he really made the book come alive.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Where Caspian met the lady who was to become his wife.

Any additional comments?

This book, for those who haven't yet read it, is the only one which doesn't take place in Narnia and there is only one talking beast on board, Reepicheep the mouse, who we meet in Prince Caspian. But the one person who Aslan needs to work on in this book is Eustace, who is a tiresome boy, sneering and jeering at his two cousins, Edmund and Lucy and their belief in Narnia. He is also selfish and Aslan meets him when he has run away from the ship when it has landed on one of the islands, for only Aslan can change him from a tiresome boy into a more thoughtful and well-behaved one.

But Lucy also must learn a lesson as she gives into temptation in Koriakin's house, where she listens in to what her schoolfellows are saying about her.

It is a book that will thrill you from the start.

Good

The book itself is brilliant. It's the perfect family book to settle down with and you can listen to whenever. The narration was brilliant, not the voice you would expect for a C.S.Lewis but Derek Jacobi does a fantastic job of putting it into context and bringing the characters voices to life. Would definitely recommend it.

Journey to the end of the world.

What made the experience of listening to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 3 the most enjoyable?

Derek Jacobi's reading was excellent, probably the best narrated book of the series so far. It was an enjoyable listen, and reading along with the print version made the reading experience so much better.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 3?

The most memorable moment for me was Eustace changing into a dragon, discovering himself and becoming a better person.

Any additional comments?

This is my favourite book in The Chronicles of Narnia series. It is well narrated by Derek Jacobi and the story is brilliant. A great listen and a great read.
