    The creation of a world. The beginning of the epic battle of good vs evil. Technically this book should be read FIRST, but it usually is not. The concepts in this book has made it one of my all time favorites. I actually disliked it as a kid, but after rereading it as an adult, I was so impressed that this story could come out of another human’s mind, I could not stop listening. To get a real old school feel for the Chronicles, the BBC made a series back in the 80s-90s that was horrible technically but fairly “English” in its interpretation and a fun watch. Lewis never disappoints

    Very well done, a magical literary experience! The narration is done in just the right dramatic style as to not be to overdone. I'm suggesting this app to all my friends in education.

    I love this book! Very well written. All the Chronicles of Narnia I have read or listened to on audiobooks over and over. I never get tired of them. This book is very interesting telling how Narnia first started.The narrator is excellent. He brings all the characters to life. I highly recommend all the Narnian books. It is a very nice way to escape for awhile and visit Narnia!
