What the Critics Say

"This is an audio page-turner that will have you sitting in the car after you reach your destination just to hear the end of the chapter. Lynn Redgrave delivers a lively interpretation of the adventure, with a cultured British accent and nuances that give every character a unique voice." (AudioFile)

    "A hidden jewel"

    FROM STEVE FELDBERG, PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR, AUDIBLE:
    Rightfully so, "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" gets most of the attention in C.S. Lewis' Narnia series. But each and every one of the Harper Audio renditions is wonderful, with great narrators like Patrick Stewart, Kenneth Branagh, Michael York, and other notables. "Prince Caspian" is the hidden jewel, for its memorable story of the return of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy to Narnia, and for its terrifically nuanced narration by Lynn Redgrave. I didn't think of the Narnia books as having a female "voice" until I heard Ms. Redgrave's lovely rhythms and inventive voices. She more than reads this book; she performs it. You won't regret a minute of the time you'll spend listening to this and all the Narnia books.

    "Absolutely Magnificent!"

    Lynn Redgrave's wonderful voice(es) kept us captivated the entire way through. I personally liked her style better than the books where multiple narrators read, each playing a part.

    My wife, two young boys (8, 10yrs) loved this story as she read it. We stayed parked in our driveway to listen more, and lounged around on a beautiful Saturday morning -- couldn't turn it off!

    "Great experience"

    This was a great "read", and a great Narnia experience. The naration was right on target - believable, clear, overall an excellent voice to listen to. I highly recommend this book.

    "Gotta love C.S. Lewis"

    Prince Caspian is another great story from the Chronicles of Narnia by the great writer C.S. Lewis. Like his other books, this one is written in a cute and fun way, almost as if someone is telling you a bedtime story. The reader does a good job as the narrator and characters.

    "Outstanding!!!"

    this is a must read before you ever go and see the movie The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. It really gives you an indepth look at where this movie starts from. Narration was excellent and I have done 6 of the Narnia books so far and can't wait to read the last battle.

    "Fantastic!"

    Excellent story and a good Biblical study tool/conversation piece -- especially if you're into apologetics.
    I highly, highly recommend it.

    "A treat!"

    A classic, to be sure. And a very loving telling with wonderful dramatizations. A great experience for all ages. C.S. Lewis is the original Y.A. fantasy writer.

    Story
    "A wonderful in-between tale"

    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.

    "Classic read by a pro. Multivariate"

    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.

    "Wonderfully told!"

    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.
