In the never-ending war between good and evil, The Chronicles of Narnia set the stage for battles of epic proportions. Some take place in vast fields, where the forces of light and darkness clash. But other battles occur within the small chambers of the heart and are equally decisive.

Journeys to the ends of the world, fantastic creatures, betrayals, heroic deeds, and friendships won and lost -- all come together in an unforgettable world of magic. So let the adventures begin.

    Along with being my favorite of the Narnia books, this is my favorite Narnia audiobook as well. Kenneth Branagh does a fantastic job acting out the parts. He has a wide range of accents and voices, lending additional humor to an already humorous book. And as always, C.S. Lewis writes with amazing capacity for translating major ideas into a language children can understand and enjoy. The marvel of witnessing the creation of Narnia is one of the most beautiful moments in the entire series.

    Only 3 stars because you need to read this book. I did, and listening to it afterwards is worth 5 stars for the audio, but please read it first. CS Lewis is always worth careful hands-on reading and pondering. Even his myths need time to stop and think!

    It was enjoyable to listen to the history of Narnia. I saw the movie but had never read any of the books. To be able to tie in book 1 with why things are in the movie was great.

    I'm 26 and I loved this book. For the most part it is read well however at times the narrator can be hard to listen to. The voices are done well though.
