“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 more, 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.” https://goo.gl/wQ7bbmBestseller The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. C.S. Lewis Author C.S.

The best Book The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. C.S. Lewis It feels odd to mark this book as anything less than five stars. It was a huge part of my childhood.What's more, this book is part of the reason I'm a decent public speaker these days. I joined forensics because this was the book that 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 ಠ_ಠ. 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.
