Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are returning to boarding school when they are summoned from the dreary train station (by Susan's own magic horn) to return to the land of Narnia, the land where they had ruled as kings and queens and where their help is desperately needed.
This was the second book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the fourth book in the series.
Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

"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)
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!
The book and narrator are both fine, but the recording itself is somewhat flawed. Most of it is alright, but there is static in the background at points. A few words glitch too.
This book is just simply amazing. one of the best i have ever read. C.S. describes things in ways that will be remembered forever... audible is a great way to understand ur book even better.. .. love this book
We (Ages: 52, 20, 18, 16, 9) really enjoy this 2nd book in The Chronicles of Narnia. The narrator does an excellent job of changing her voice for each character and she especially sounds like Edmund and Lucy. The story is entertaining as C.S. Lewis is in all of his fictional/allegorical stories. I highly recommend this audio book.
I loved the Lion Witch and Wardrobe, but this book was lacking in content to me. The reader, EXCELLENT!!!!!! Loved her voices, and her acting adds a depth that kept me listening.
My daughter wanted to go see the Prince Caspian movie so I made a deal with her, I told her if she read the book I would take her. She never read a book this big, she was only 9 years old. So I bought her the book and I downloaded the audible book. Our agreement was to read the book together, so every day when I picked her up from school I played the book in the car while she read along. This allowed us to discuss the book and develop her comprehension. The book was great. The innocence of a child's imagination and their ability to believe in the amazing was awesome. The narration was some of the best I have heard. Great Book. Strongly recommend it!
This whole series is wonderful! I was especially impressed with Redgrave's narration; her reading is clear, her voices good. There were a few minor glitches in the recording, places where there was some hiss and a few places where words were clipped, almost skipped. These problems are on the store bought disks as well, so I suspect the issue lies with the master copy. Still, I recommend buying this story.
I had read the books before, but to have them read to me while I drive was amazing. Great story with some good Bible based lessons. The lessons are not pointed out, but they are certainly there.
