If you have ever read and enjoyed the Chronicles of Narnia, you will especially enjoy this audio. I love this series of audio books. They are straight readings, not dramatizations. This one is read beautifully by Jeremy Northam. The dialogue of all of the characters is distinct and individual.
I prefer the original order of the books, which is not how they are packaged . (This one is listed as 6.)
1) The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
2) Prince Caspian
3) The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
4) The Silver Chair
5) The Horse and His Boy
6) The Magician's Nephew
7) The Last Battle
More adventure and delight from CS Lewis. Good lessons about appearance vs reality, what is known from experience and what one is told, and how our perspective can be limited. Also contains the depressingly wonderful Puddleglum.
NARNIA... where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans (and, if carefully cooked, on Marsh-wiggles, too), where a prince is pur umder an evil spell...and where the adventure begins.
"The magic of C. S. Lewis's parallel universe never fades." The Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Narnia . . . where giants wreak havoc . . . where evil weaves a spell . . . where enchantment rules. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, a noble band of friends are sent to rescue a prince held captive. But their mission to Underland brings them face-to-face with an evil more beautiful and more deadly than they ever expected.

What is there to say? All of the Chronicles of Narnia books are awesome...including this one. I read them in high school, and again a year ago. I was hooked both times. I basically read through them all at once.
