    I didnt like this book as much as the first two books in the Chronicles of Narnia. It just didnt have the same sense of adventure. Narnia is no longer a magic land that children stumble into but a country that anyone can travel to.

    I love this story. It may be my favorite of all the Narnia books. I was unsure how I'd like this version because we have the FOTF Radio Theater versions, which are all fantastic. But this really turned out to be a wonderful listen. I thought the narrator did a really great job, making it easy to follow the story and who was speaking when. I'll certainly look for more Alex Jennings narrations in the future. And this audiobook will be added to my regular go-to list.

    Sooo good! I love to follow along in my hard copy, but also love to just listen along while my kids play, or when I'm baking. Such a wonderful narrator, too. So many good voices

    Beautiful story, full of myth and magic. Symbolism too, of course, and it's all fun and fabulous. The narration is top notch; amazing how the different characters get so many different voices. Well done!

    C.S. Lewis has always been one of my favorite authors. The Horse and his Boy is one very well written books. I loved the reader and thought that the CD's themselves would be worn and scratched but they played remarkably well. Thank you Simply Audiobooks for making sure your rentals are in good shape for us to listen too.

    Sometimes it is nice to just change gears from the usual murder/mystery/thriller and go with a book like this. Even flowing story with adolescent curiousity makes for a fun book.
