They were captured as slaves.
Their ship was wrecked by a storm and attacked by a sea serpent.
They were almost killed by a magic lake. (I know, right?)
No italics. Sorry!
At least to me, this makes them the victims, and the protagonist is usually the victim, not the attacker.
When an innocent person is taken and sold off as a slave, it's hard for me to empathize with the slave merchant(s).
The waves temporarily shipwrecked the crew.

It nearly killed the crew.

Would I recommend this book to someone else?
It's a great allegory to the Bible, just like the 6 other books in the Chronicles of Narnia series.
In Chapter 1, Eustace is rather bothersome; he annoys his cousins Edmund and Lucy constantly. He thinks they are too worried a fantasy realm called Narnia to know what they're doing. Little does he know that what they say about it is the truth.
On Dragon Island, he is briefly turned into a...
Over time, he learns to be more sensitive to others.
...dragon, of course.
Weird name, I know. Anyway, they're the creatures who live on the Island of the voices. It seems the magician living there made them invisible for their protection, but they still believe it was to oppress them.
They have only 2 major characteristics:
1. They blindly follow their leader.
2. They're not that bright.
And they don't really change much, if at all.
If you're in a field when a tornado is approaching, duck into the nearest furrow to protect yourself from debris.
Sometimes in a society, the gentry is made of the richest people, not the wisest.
Since 9/11, there has always been enmity between Al Qaeda and the United States.
Never walk out on the bowsprit of a boat: you could drown.
When you're sailing in a hurry, the last thing you want is for the ship to be becalmed.
Any time a scrape looks ghastly, bandage it right away so it doesn't get infected.
When you sail anywhere, make sure you have enough victuals to last the trip.
Few, if any, have committed financial fraud as scandalous as that of Bernie Madoff.
The sentries could do little to stop the onslaught of invaders.
In the beginning of the story, Eustace is best described as a blighter.
Eustace didn't change back to a human until the end of the movie.
Caspian was captured, but he wasn't sold as a slave. Instead, the Dawn Treader's crew saved them.
Susan is mentioned in the movie.
Eustace changes back to a human halfway through the book.
Caspian was sold to one of his uncle's old friends, Lord Bern. Lord Bern then realized Caspian was his king and, along with the Dawn Treader's crew, ended the slave trade. He was later pronounced Duke of the Lone Islands.
Susan is never mentioned in the book.
They're both great allegories to the Bible.
Hey, do you like the Muppets?
Well then, do I have something for you to see!
This would be more appropriate for November.
One last thing: click this link.
In the novel, he is more mature than most others. In the movie, he doesn't like to be told what to do all the time. He can sometimes be easily tempted. (Besides, no one's perfect.) All those statements somewhat describe me.
He is the captain of the Dawn Treader, and an experienced one at that. His concern for the crew before himself is to be commended. Not that I'm insensitive to others, but I no experience being the captain of a ship, nor do I plan to be one. No offense to any boat enthusiasts!
Jeez, what is with people these days?
There is no one conflict in the novel. It's like a TV show: each episode has a separate plot, and hence a separate conflict. Nevertheless, I'll talk about...
In the novel, Eustace, Edmund, Lucy, Caspian, and Reepicheep are kidnapped on the island of Felimath to be sold as slaves. Caspian was sold to one of his uncle's old friends, Lord Bern. Lord Bern then realized Caspian was his king and, along with the Dawn Treader's crew, ended the slave trade. Caspian then removes the corrupt Governor Gumpas from his office, and proclaims Lord Bern Duke of the Lone Islands.
First, Eustace, Edmund, and Lucy are transported to Narnia and taken on board the Dawn Treader. Eustace meets Caspian and Reepicheep (whom Lucy and Edmund already know), but soon after, a slave merchant captures them and takes them to the island of Felimath. Caspian abolishes the slave trade, and replaces the depraved Governor Gumpas with Duke Bern as the head of the Lone Islands. Ruined by a storm, the Dawn Treader has to land at a deserted island for repairs. Eustace is briefly transformed into a dragon. Aslan later changes him back into a human.
Ironically, right after it's repaired, the Dawn Treader is attacked by a sea serpent. Then, crew nearly died diving into a lake that can turn anything into
, so the lake was appropriately named Deathwater. Later, the crew lands on an island where the natives have invisibility, which they blame on an occult magician. Lucy undoes the spell. The natives later name themselves Dufflepuds, for whatever reason.
