Delightful mini adventures! Jun 10, 2008
As always, I somehow manage to get wrapped up in the Narnia stories. I don't know how or why, but I'm always curious as to what the next chapter will be. This felt to me more like a collection of short stories than anything else. Each few chapters starts a new adventure, and there are very, very few plots lines that hold over. And the few that do have little weight to the current "adventure." Nonetheless, the adventures that are embarked on are beautiful and intriguing, and the various islands are described with incredible detail and each one is unique from the other. Again, I felt (as I do with the other Narnia books I've read) that there is so much more that could be expanded on, that the worlds and the characters have so much more to offer than what is told. But, in a way I suppose that is a compliment as well, because I'd want to know more. And, as always, certain characters (most characters) are very delightful, each with his or her own personalities. And, of course, there is always something most beautiful and touching about Aslan.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Apr 7, 2008
Third book printed, fifth book chronologically.
I began re-reading the Narnia series after coming across a beautiful boxed set of all seven novels. Mainly this was out of nostalgia, as these were favourites when I was young, and I was interested to see how they held up as adults. I found them all to be written very clearly with provocative descriptive prose, and narrative that often draws the reader immediately into the story.
This one's a fine companion to "Prince Caspian" and feels more like the second half of that novel rather than a novel in its own right, but this doesn't stop the enjoyment of the tail despite the feeling of implausibility that the reader gets at times. The growth of the characters following previous instalments is tangible and feels authentic however, and the whole thing is as entertaining as the books set before it.
Great Voyage Nov 11, 2007
After reading the first book in the series I always wondered how the children from our world would make it into Narnia. This edition has an especially creative re-entry. When they arrive they find themselves on an amazing ship with an even greater assignment.
A main theme of this book is overcoming fear, both the known and the unknown. Being on the seas brings many adventures, from strange people, foreign lands, sea creatures, and even a journey into complete darkness. In the end, fear is conquered and the mission is accomplished.
World's End May 26, 2007
Yes, I would recommend this book to other people. It is a great example Of a fantasy book, and if a person likes fantasy, I think that they will find this a really great book. Also, some chapters ended with a cliffhanger, so it was a page turner because you keep wanting to know what happens. One last reason is that it is part of a series, so if you like "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader", you can read the others by the same author.
An Odyssey in Narnia Apr 16, 2007
The fifth book in the series finds Lucy, Edmund, and Eustace joining Prince caspian on a ship called The Dawn Treader, which is setting sail to little known Narnian territories where Caspians uncles have been exiled. Each island explores a different sin by which an uncle fell, and a different magical encounter for the voyagers to face and resolve. The developement of the mighty mouse Reepicheep is an especially welcome treat for children, and the scene in which Eustace becomes a dragon and embodies his own foul heart, so gaining a sort of enlightenment and a definite change of character, is a particularly skillful use of symbolism. The reaching of Aslan's kingdom is also a symbol of enlightenment, with the Kingdom of Aslan invoking the Kingdom of Heaven in the reader's mind. The islands can be seen as steps in the path to heaven, and the character developement along the way can be seen as an outline to the steps towards righteousness and spirituality. As a fantasy or as a religious writing, this is a hugely important book!
