What the Critics Say

"This is an audio page-turner that will have you sitting in the car after you reach your destination just to hear the end of the chapter. Lynn Redgrave delivers a lively interpretation of the adventure, with a cultured British accent and nuances that give every character a unique voice." (AudioFile)

A hidden jewel

FROM STEVE FELDBERG, PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR, AUDIBLE:
Rightfully so, "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" gets most of the attention in C.S. Lewis' Narnia series. But each and every one of the Harper Audio renditions is wonderful, with great narrators like Patrick Stewart, Kenneth Branagh, Michael York, and other notables. "Prince Caspian" is the hidden jewel, for its memorable story of the return of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy to Narnia, and for its terrifically nuanced narration by Lynn Redgrave. I didn't think of the Narnia books as having a female "voice" until I heard Ms. Redgrave's lovely rhythms and inventive voices. She more than reads this book; she performs it. You won't regret a minute of the time you'll spend listening to this and all the Narnia books.

Okay I guess

Chronicles of Narnia is seven books in all, but this is as far as I got in Narnia. What disappoints me the most is how very, very simple, and almost linear the stories are. The only reason I started Narnia was because of a recommendation from a reader of Stanek's Kingdoms and Elves of the Reaches, which is a complex, richly detailed story. I may continue with the books some day, but for now I'm going back to the real thing.
