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 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 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.
