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)

    "Something went wrong"
    What disappointed you about Prince Caspian?

    One spot in the story froze my device, and rendered Audible unresponsive. Six times, same spot in the story, and can't fast-forward past it either.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the story, hate that it froze in the middle and I couldn't finish it.

    Story
    "Lynn Redgrave Surprised Me!"

    To be honest, I was a little reluctant to purchase this one because I didn't think I'd like a female narrator tackling Narnia -- and although Lynn Redgrave is a celebrated actress, she's not really my "cup of tea" as a viewer. However, I am now pretty well sold as to her virtues as a narrator.

    Story-wise, you simply can't go wrong with any Narnia book. Or any C.S. Lewis book, for that matter! Prince Caspian marks the second appearance in Narnia for the Pevensies, and it absolutely lives up to the high standard set by The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. This is great story for bringing up interesting doctrinal discussions later with friends/kids/anyone you listen with, but a non-Christian reader could enjoy the story perfectly well without getting smacked over the head with allegory.

    For me, one of the crucial characters to get right in this particular book is Reepicheep. Being a mouse and yet also a noble warrior, he's not the easiest character to give a voice to, and I worried about him coming out too squeaky and/or irritating and thus spoiling the book for me. Fortunately, Lynn Redgrave managed to do quite a decent voice for him, as well as for most other characters. Her reading of Lucy was a bit cloying at first, but you get used to it as the story goes on. I was, frankly, impressed at just how different Ms. Redgrave was able to voice all of the many, many characters in the story. She has a good pace, as well, and really understands how to move with the story, pause at the right moments, etc. I felt that she had a deep affection for the story as she was reading it (or perhaps she really is that great of an actress), which made her storytelling even more effective.

    I still wish they had had Kenneth Branagh do the entire Narnia series, but at least my money was still well spent on this audio book.

    "Glad they got a lady to do one of the Chronicles!"
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Tail...rather Tale Two..."

    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.

    "I just could not get "into" this audiobook"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I loved the movie Narnia however I just could not stay interested in this audio book. It was too whimsical or fairy tale for me. I found Lynn Redgrave's accent a bit annoying. At times she was tough to understand.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, but I'd watch it for free on TV.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Prince Caspian to be better than the print version?

    I am truly a CS Lewis fan. I loved the rendering of Prince Caspian. Can't wait to begin the Silver Chair.

    "Loved it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Prince Caspian the most enjoyable?

    Lynn Redgrave's voice! What a master she is at portraying the many voices in this tale!
    Fabulous!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Prince Caspian?

    The very last! And the few right before when the children are leaving Narnia to return home. It makes the mind run wild with wondering other possibilities.


    What about Lynn Redgrave???s performance did you like?

    Her rich voice and easy variability from one character to the next. She also truly caught the feel of each situation.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just pure enjoyment!

    "She will be missed."

    Not that I was particularly familiar with the work of British actress Lynn Redgrave at the time I heard of her death from cancer. But as has been the case with every one of the Narnia books I've listened to so far from Harper Audio, Ms. Redgrave has a voice that lends itself well to narration. Other reviewers remarked on her inventive voices and I can definitely find little fault with her on that score. She brings an old favorite to life quite nicely.
    Prince Caspian is set some hundreds of Narnian years after the events of Wardrobe. In that time the realm was conquered by the people of Telmar and has been ruled by the Caspian family. The current heir, however, suddenly finds himself fleeing for his life when his uncle Miraz, who served as regent following the death of his brother the king, is suddenly delivered of a baby son and decides to have the rightful heir killed. Aided by his tutor Cornelius, Caspian flees his uncle's castle and soon finds himself allied with the talking animals and other folk to whom Narnia rightfully belongs. Cornered by the army of Miraz, Caspian sounds an ancient, magic horn said to be able to summon help at need. This is how Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy finally return to their old kingdom, not to kick Caspian out of his place but to put him into it.
    All in all this is an excellent story, done superb justice by an actress who I'm sure will be sorely missed. As has been the case with the other books so far, I could hardly put down the iPod.

    "Amazing Narration & Masterful Allegory"

    Lynn Redgrave really brings this book to life with her distinct character voice portrayal and consistency. This book is definitely a classic as CS Lewis masterfully parallels the journey of a Christ-follower with the second adventure of Peter, Susan, Edmund & Lucy in Narnia. Definitely worth every penny!
