    As a fan of C.S. Lewis's writing, I must confess to no small bias.
    This is either the third or fourth book in the Narnia series, depending upon how you count. As such it is much easier to follow after reading the first few books in the series.
    Overall, this and the other stories hold up well. A few things might need explaining to American audiences ("torch" means "flashlight"), and the analogies might be missed. There is a certain amount of predictability and Deus ex Machine (Aslan ex Machina?)
    The story starts with Lucy and Edmond staying with their Aunt & uncle and know it all prat cousin, Eustace. As usual, they are transported to Narnia, or at least into that world 's ocean very near a Narnian ship. They meet up with some friends of Lucy and Edmond and join in their exploration and adventures.

    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is CS Lewis' 3rd installment in the Narnia by publication release. In this episode the two younger siblings, along with an annoying relative are transported to Narnia to assist King Caspian in an adventure to hunt down his father's loyal aides who were sent away by his wicked uncle. The trek takes them to many unknown islands. Along the way, they either find the lost lords or their remains. The annoying relative learns some valuable life lessons. Aslan makes his usual just when he's needed appearances. And there's a dragon.

    3.5 stars. My favorite part of this book is Eustace and his development. Love it!
    The rest of the book is fun, but also a little disjointed. I'm unsure what the overall message of this book is supposed to be, though I spotted many little lessons throughout. Maybe that's what Lewis intended for this one, but since his other Narnia books so far all seem to have an overarching allegory, I wonder if and what I'm missing in this one.

    The Chronicles of Narnia has been one of my favorite series since childhood, and even now that I'm middle aged (plus) I still enjoy reading these books every so often. This book is SO much better than the recent movie version. Whoever wrote the screenplay should have been truer to the book, because it didn't need embellishment. I came out of the movie theater scratching my head and wondering what I'd just seen because it wasn't The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. There are so many enjoyable adventures in the book. From the smallest episode like the close shave with the sea monster to the retired star Coriakim's island the book has plenty of adventure for younger readers, or those like myself who can still remember being young. It brings back the idea of the possibility of encountering something unknown, the thrill of discovery.

    I’m very disappointed with the seller. I have no problem with the contents of the book (I’ve read them all several times and love them), but the seller advertised this as the Facsimile edition (“celebration of the original” edition) meaning it is a reprint of the original cover. However, there was no cover at all included in what I received. Additionally, the book was shipped from overseas in only a thin plastic shipping bag that had no padding at all. Wasn’t even a bubble wrap lined mailing bag. It could have been severely damaged. I would not order from this seller. I’m returning it and will be looking for another copy elsewhere.

    I’ve ordered from other overseas vendors in my search to complete the facsimile edition collection, and I’ve never had any problems.

    The book is very different from the movie. I will not compare them. The story is as all the Narnia stories, filled with hero's and violins and adventure. Happiness and sadness. Edmond and Lucy will never return to the land. Aslan told them in their world he has another name. They must learn that name.

    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader takes the reader back into the world of Narnia, the ocean east of Narnia anyway. We meet Prince Caspian on a sea voyage to the East in search of seven noble men who, having been sent there by Caspian's now deceased evil uncle, Miraz, never returned. Lucy and Edmond along with a new character to the Chronicles, their cousin, Eustice, sail along for the ride. Along the way they encounter lands with mysterious inhabitants, dangerous creatures, and staggering beauty. I found this episode of the Chronicles of Narnia to be one of my favorites so far. The return of Edmund, Lucy, Caspian, and especially Reepicheep is a welcome reunion. The new human character here adds both humor and depth to the story and I enjoyed the development of this character. The Christian allegory continues strongly here with many scenes which will no doubt stick in my mind for a long time to come. The ending is especially good. The illustrations were thankfully included in the Kindle copy and of good quality. I recommend this book for any who seek a way to Lewis' magical world.

    The Voyage of The Dawn Treader is a classic sea story comparable to Homer's Odyssey. It starts shortly after where Prince Caspian ends, and we encounter both ferocious sea serpents and harsh opinionated humans, yet unconditional love triumphs over all. Most fascinating of all is Reepicheep the valiant mouse who bravely encounters and befriends a dragon his natural enemy! We see the imperfections in Caspian and Lucy and are reminded that they are every bit as human as are we. Best of all, it is a delightful read. I enjoy taking Voyage of the Dawn Treader to the beach and read it while listening to the waves! As the movie is being released soon, I believe it wise to read the book first, or right after. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader belongs on the bookshelves of those who wish to sail into a delightful saga of the sea.

    Buyer beware. Very disappointed to receive an edition removed from a set, marked not for re sale (from directly, not a third party seller).

    Print quality of book is extremely poor with close typesetting (difficult to read). The smaller format does not match the rest of my son's collection. There was absolutely nothing about the price to indicate this would be so sub standard. Very poor form.

    Having fallen in love with the Narnia Chronicles, this book represents one of the best highlights of the series. The book is full of wonder and excitement, a real journey through the seas of Narnia. C.S. Lewis has managed to make the story feel familiar and comforting but at the same time different and awe inspiring. The way the story is told is unique and grabs your attention throughout, making sure you are with them every step of the way, a real adventure. You have a true sense of wonderment and joy while reading this book. A real page turner and the make believe world comes to life.

    This CD is a very good full cast dramatization of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C. S. Lewis. For those who don't know the book it is an exciting story about how Edmund and Lucy and their unpleasant cousin Eustace are drawn into a ship belonging to the magical land of Narnia. On the ship is Edmund and Lucy's old friend King Caspian. Adventures they have a plenty, as they sail on and on into uncharted waters. They are captured as slaves and rescued; Eustace turns into a dragon; they encounter invisible enemies and an invisible magician and a retired star who resting from his journeys in the galaxy! And they meet the great Aslan, not once or twice but many times. People are helped; Eustace is changed and loses his nastiness there is magic and a hint of romance and Reepicheep, the brave talking mouse, attains his hearts desire. And there is much, much ! For those who do know the book, this is an excellent drama that includes virtually everything in the book, that conveys all the magic and meaningfulness, and leaves out nothing of any importance. I would thoroughly recommend this CD.

    The voyage of the Dawn Treader is a delightful story of exploration and adventure. It draws to the end the lives of some of the characters from previous Narnia books in a joyful and delightful way. A great read.
