The Chronicles of Narnia Audiobooks

Status: Bookseller Picks

 

I enjoy listening to audio books. I find that time passes much more quickly at work or on long drive when I have one playing. For me, the two most important things I look for in a new audio book are a great story and a great reader, which is why I loved the Chronicles of Narnia CD Box Set. You probably already know that the stories by C. S. Lewis are classic works of fantasy, but the great actors that were recruited to perform for the audio versions--including Patrick Stewart, Kenneth Branagh, and Lynn Redgrave--increase their enjoyability greatly. My personal favorite on this collection is The Magician's Nephew as read by Michael York; I could listen to him read the phone book and never get bored. I would recommend this collection to both adults and children; it's the perfect choice for family road trips.

The thing that usually makes or breaks an Audio book is the reader. A bad reader can ruin a good book.

Chronicles of Narnia CD Box Set has an incredible cast that makes a great series of books extraordinary. I read the books as a child, and now my children and I recently listen to the books for hours on the road. It made the whole trip so much more enjoyable.
