Well-deserved recognition for its simplicity & performance. Lynn Redgrave's performance is perfect for this book. The story is in its scattered-ness a success in immersing us reader/listeners into the widening realm of Narnia.
Children's fiction? Religious? So many layers within this story, and so much simple fun, and Lynn Redgrave portrays 50 or more different characters so well.
It met my expectations and more. The narrator was good at the different voices and I was not expecting that. Nothing like revisiting a childhood favorite like C. S. Lewis and having it read so well.

I can see why there is a tendency to get male narrators to read the Chronicles of Narnia, the most obvious reason being that Lewis is a male and the Chronicles are written in a kind of combined third person objective and first person narration style. readers identify the narrator with C.S. Lewis, which I think he very much encourages them to do. That said, this is a world of fiction and literature and magic and I really appreciate the diversity of narrators that harper Audio got to do this series. Lynn Redgrave really does a fabulous job!
I love a good book...
Prince Caspian follows The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe with a delightful tale about the Children's return to Narnia. The story does answer what happened later and held my interest now as it did 50 years ago. The narrator made the story come alive.
