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.

    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.

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.
