Jeremy Northam is absolutely terrific narrating this book! He gives a voice to each character and does a wonderful job bringing them to life. His narration greatly enhances "The Silver Chair". He should narrate more books in the Narnia series!

For some reason, seemingly unlike most who read the very profound Chronicles of Narnia, The Silver Chair is my favorite-- despite the fact that it contains some of the more heavy-handed Christian allegory among them. As a person who is not Christian and has never had any intention of becoming one, there are certain characterizations of divinity and gender which are quite antithetical to my own perspectives, as is often the complaint about this particular series from some strongly secular bases.
However, The Silver Chair, just as the majority of the rest of the series, is quite readily capable of standing apart from Lewis' standard Apologist reasonings as literary classics. This book is not only an important Christian Apologist treatise which should never be ignored as such, but also really amazingly useful to the mind of any child capable of comprehending it, as it masterfully integrates relevant and meaningful ethical lessons for young people of any religion, or even no religion at all.
