Publisher's Summary

Narnia...where anything can happen (and most often does) and where the adventure begins.

The Dawn Treader is the first ship Narnia has seen in centuries. King Caspian has built it for his first voyage to find the seven lords, good men whom his evil uncle Miraz banished when he usurped the throne. The journey takes Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and Caspian to the Eastern Islands, beyond the Silver Sea, toward Aslan's country at 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.

Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

    "Favorite Narnia book"

    This was my favorite book out of all 7. I liked the shorter stories that went along with each adventure. I also liked how Eustace changes as the book goes on. The imagery Lewis creates is amazing, espcially toward the end.

    "shrill mouse voice"

    This is a good one, except for the voice of Reepicheep, which becomes painful at points. Too bad since he is such a central character!

    Story
    "A classic well-done."

    Voyage of the Dawn Treader picks up presumably not long after thhe four Pevensies returned from Narnia at the end of Prince Caspian. While Peter goes to study with the famous Professor Kirk and Susan visits America with their parents, Edmund and Lucy are enduring an unpleasant stay with their disagreeable cousin Eustace Scrubb. Things get complicated whent he three children are suddenly sucked into a painting of a ship sailing one of the seven seas. They find themselves aboard the Dawn Treader, King Caspian's personal ship. Caspian reveals that he is on a quest to find sevenn Narnian lords banished during the reign of his tyranical uncle Miraz and return them to Narnia. While Edmund and Lucy are overjoyed to be back in Narnia, the pampered Eustace wants nothing more than to go back home. Will the crew of the Dawn Treader be able to complete their quest? And will Eustace drive them all crazy?
    This was an excellent production. Derek Jacobi does a good job of bringing the various characters to life. About my only complaint? is his portrayal of Reepicheep, but since he's a talking mouse... Needless to say I couldn't put this one down.

    "Better than a cruise ship."

    Traveling to the end of the world, what an adventure. I loved the descriptions of the islands and the adventures that the children were a part of.

    Story
    "Beautiful rendition of a childhood classic!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! The Chronicles of Narnia were my favourite books as a kid, and even now as an adult with a BA and MA in English Literature, I return to this series frequently. Each time, I discover something new and rewarding, be it another dimension of allegory I'd previously missed, or else some clever joke that went over my head as a younger reader.


    What does Derek Jacobi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Derek Jacobi is really one of the better Harper Audio "Narnian" narrators, my only qualm is his voicing of Reepicheep the Mouse, which can be a little bit grating for long-term listening! Just a bit melodramatic for my taste, although other listeners, particularly younger ones, might really enjoy his interpretation of the character.
