The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Chronicles of Narnia #3
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Each Narnia book gets better and better. In this case we are introduced to Eustace Scrubb, a thoroughly unpleasant cousin of Edmond and Lucy.
They all go to Narnia, have adventures with Caspian and then go back to England.
I find it amazing how simple and concise these stories are and yet just how engaging and wonderful at the same time. I would find myself thinking “Well, what if…, or How would this…” and I would have to pull myself back and remember that Lewis was writing this primarily for children.
And yet I was never bored, nor did I ever roll my eyes at a simplification. This was great writing. And it really shows.
