Awesome Audio Book Set Jan 18, 2007
I am so pleased with the book set on CD's. I don't care to read very often & since I am a home health nurse I'm in my car alot. Books on CD are very entertaining for us folks on the road. I'd recommend this set to everyone! I saw the movie before I got this set which is what perked my interest in Narnia. I'm 35y/o & I loved it! I'm finishing up the last book now. I'm sad that it's ending though it's kept me entertained for over a month. (I did have a little trouble following the directions to my patients houses because I was so into the stories, oops!).
Great Find Jan 10, 2007
We really enjoyed the different readers for each of the seven stories. I'll never get used to people re-arranging them into chronological order, but that is easly fixed. The only real issue I have is Patrick Stewart reading "The Last Battle". I kept thinking that Aslan was going to beam them up. Otherwise, they are great fun and especially good for long car rides.
Great audiobooks! Nov 20, 2006
My husband and I absolutely LOVE this set of The Chronicles of Narnia audiobooks. The stories are all read by actors who do an amazing job of giving special voices to the characters and who paint pictures of what is happening in the stories by the way they read the books. I can't imagine that I could like a movie rendition, or even an audio dramatized version of these stories more than these audio books that are simply read in their entirety. They're captivating! I really like that you get the REAL story - it hasn't been changed and nothing has been deleted for the sake of filming or making it dramatic. And you still get to use your imagination to create the scenes in your mind. We don't have any children yet, but when we do, we will definitely listen to these with our kids.
Childhood wonder - Adult enjoyment Nov 6, 2006
I decided to get these for long road trips. After reading the different reviews I bought this set. We live with our daughter and her family in a large house, so altogether there are 10 of us. Our grandchildren love this series (ages 9 yrs to 9 months). They have listened to them over and over. Our 18 yr son has listened to them too. The vote is that this is the best ones yet and we've had a few. C. S. Lewis can weave a story like no one else. It's cause me (56 yrs old) to go back and re-read this series. I think it's a wonderful gift for grandchildren and grandparents.
Audio CDs [Unabridged] Review Aug 31, 2006
Audio CDs [Unabridged] Review.
There are 7 books with several CDs in each book (31 total CDs that play for about 1 hour per CD). There are several nice illustrations on the book pages and on the CDs. The audio quality is very good.
A different narrator reads each book and they are all very good at story telling. I was pleasantly surprised to find that switching narrators between books did not take away from the experience at all.
I listened to the books in chronological order (book 1, book 2, etc.) and found it to be very enjoyable.
Over all it's a great value for some very entertaining stories.
