      The style of the author allows an easy reading. Informed well. The author makes links with other Lewis's papers. He also makes links with events lived by Lewis. At the end of every chapter, the author's questions propose some tracks of ethique reflexion or spiritual reflexion. very intereting and not binding.

      Best Commentary Series on Narnia

      Devin Brown's Inside Narnia series is three sevenths of the way to becoming the only *complete* commentary on the Narnia books. It is already the best.

      Like with Inside Narnia and Inside Prince Caspian, Brown walks the reader chapter-by-chapter through Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Unlike other books on Narnia, which often focus exclusively on the connections within Narnia to other aspects of Lewis's thought - or focus on explaining the literary sources for Lewis's mythical world - Brown also devotes considerable time treating the book as a work of master-class writing. Which it is.

      Readers (like me) for whom VODT is the pinnacle of the Chronicles need not worry that Brown unweaves the book's powerful magic. Brown is a good writer himself and his commentary somehow still retains much of the excitement and charm of the primary source. As a critic, Brown adopts Lewis's model for criticism, which is wary of too much reading between the lines. Brown points out clear connections to Lewis's other work, illuminates the book's literary features and allusions, but avoids the "mare's nests" often caused by over-interpretation. This is a book that sends you back to the original with greater appreciation and enjoyment.

      Recommended for book groups or high-school-and-up classrooms, and especially for serious fans of VODT, who are legion.
