    "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.

    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.

    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!

    "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!

    "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.
