Podcast #95: Sea Serpent, Deathwater, and Invisible Enemies (Book Commentary)

VDTThe Voyage of the Dawn Treader, part 4
The previous chapter may have ended on arguably the most powerful character moment in The Chronicles of Narnia, but the voyage has only just begun. What do you think the Sea Serpent adds to the story? What are the “two narrow escapes” referenced in the title of Chapter 8? Did Aslan actually erase the crew’s memories of Deathwater? What were your first impressions of the invisible creatures? Listen to Rilian and Glumpuddle, and then post a comment below!

Chapters discussed:
8. Two Narrow Escapes (1:29)
     Sea Serpent (3:09)
     Deathwater (6:04)
9. The Island of the Voices (15:01)

    I'd always thought that the sea serpent would make a wonderful cinematic section in a film, and loved visualising it all as a kid. What did we get? A badly-dissected polychate…

    Already 4 podcasts for VDT? Are each book going to have this many or is it going by how much there is to talk about?

  5. glumPuddle says:

    There's no set number. I think VDT's episodic story has made it too difficult to discuss in just a few episodes. Or maybe we just love the book too much and can't stop talking. 😉

  6. Rilian says:

    That's most likely the case. 😛

    How long does he expect us to wait (for the next podcast)? How long do you wait between podcasts?
