Aslan's creation of Narnia
His reading style is fast-paced and seems to make listening to the book an adventure. He is the best reader i have heard so far.
Wanted to but didn't. 3 sittings.
Kenneth Branagh did a great job with C.S Lewis' classic tale. A wonderful story made better by the actor's superb storytelling.
A short story by todays books by the pound standards...also one many people forget. There is a back story to the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and it has a decidedly different tone. The books are all worth the read, and re-read. This one offers a short afternoon in another world.
While none of the series holds a candle to the first book in the series The Lion, Witch and Wardrobe. This one comes the closest. I adored this book. Every time I listen to it I am transported back to my childhood and all the worlds I ever imagined existed.
It is so great to listen classic books by audible system. It helps me to understand better. As a bilingual, I myself need to improve listening and speaking skills. The narrator articulates to read it as a voice actor. I would like to strongly recommand this book to everyone like me!
This is a Classic. Great Storyline, Great Narration, Easy to follow.
I listened to it on a trip with the kids, and when I stopped for fuel, they wanted me to leave it running. I loved it.
Kenneth Branagh does a great job narrating this first volume of the Chronicles of Narnia series. It's an intriguing fantasy for youngsters as well as for adults who enjoy children's classics.
Most people think that 'The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe' (book two) was the first book of Narnia. This is the book where it all begins. If you want to know who the Lion is and who the old man is in the second book then this is for you. This book goes through the first creation and discovery of Narnia. If you read this then you will understand the second book better and the last book even more.
These Chronicles of Narnia are absolutely excellent. My favorite narrator is Kenneth Branagh, who does “The Magician’s Nephew,” which is the first book in the series.
All of the stories are superbly written and well read. Listeners of all ages will enjoy them.
I listened to the books in order and recommend that you do the same. They are:
Book 1: The Magician’s Nephew
Book 2: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Book 3: The Horse and his Boy
Book 4: Prince Caspian
Book 5: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Book 6: The Silver Chair
Book 7: The Last Battle
This was a very enjoyable book to listen to as a family.
Love his voices for the characters
