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.

    Story
    "Love C.S. Lewis and the Chronicles"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, all the stories are great for both young and old. They are humorous and full of life and imagination.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eustace - He is so mean and nasty to start and changes throughout the story as he gets some real life lessons.


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

    A great accent and just the right way of saying the humorous lines that C.S. Lewis puts in the story.


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

    When Eustace turns into a dragon. Poor fellow, we weren't sure if he would get out of that fix.


    Any additional comments?

    You will love to listen to this series over and over.

    "Great Classic"

    I had read the books before, but to have them read to me while I drive was amazing. Great story with some good Bible based lessons. The lessons are not pointed out, but they are certainly there.

    "Another strong contender"

    Imagine jumping from a room into a boat in a painting and joining the voyage of the Dawn Treader to the ends of the world. The adventures, the perils and the life lessons learned as well as the tests of friendship are superb. C.S. Lewis at his storytelling best!

    "a grand adventure"

    This is almost my favorite of the Narnia books. I love the episodic nature of the story as they travel from island to island, and the utterly different perils they face on each. The Lucy - Edmond - Eustace - Caspian combination is excellent. Eustace is quite annoying for the first third of the book, but he's redeemable.

    Jacobi is an EXCELLENT reader of this tale. I only regret that he chose such a shrill voice for Reepicheep-- almost made my eyes water!

    I highly recommend this book and this recording.

    "Voyage into Deep :Philosophy"
    What made the experience of listening to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader the most enjoyable?

    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a story for all ages, a marvelous adventure with deep philosophical and theological insights. I would have enjoyed this as a child. I enjoyed it at age 75. Fabulous story.

    Story
    "Continues where Prince Caspian left off"

    Their is a gap of decades between 'The Magician's Nephew' (Book 1) and 'The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe (Book 2). Between Prince Caspian (Book 4) and 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' is only a few years. This book keeps us with Prince (King) Caspian and explains more of what happened after the kids left in Book 2. It's a great gap filler to give us the details background of what happened in the short time between books. This book also points out that time in Narnia is slowing down to match our own. This book sets the stage for the remaining books.I won't give any spoilers. I will say that you need to read this book to understand that one of the kids will be left out of the rest of the books.

    "Wonderful narrator, poor audio"

    This was my second audiobook from audible.com, and I'm sorry to say I was quite disappointed. This is one of our favorite books, so we were eagerly anticipating this one for our driving trip. The narrator does a marvelous job, but the audio quality is such that we could not easily listen in the car. There was a great deal of background noise -- not really hissing or popping, but that kind of echoey white noise you sometimes get. The children were unable to understand and we kept having to pause and repeat what had been said. Very frustrating.
