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.
This review concerns the quality of the recording itself. Perdido street station is profound and titillating, no doubt.
The recording, however, is terrible. The narrator is proficient and good with characters, but the *editing* of the audio book is inexcusable. I've so far noticed three skips ahead an unknown amount of time, but leaving out important parts of the book. Listeners to this recording who have never read the book will almost certainly finish it quite confused.
Fix this audio book, Audible. I'd like a good copy for the exhorbitant price.
