    "Exciting & well narrated"

    A wonderful adventure that I could listen to over and over again. The narrator does an excellent job with each character.

    "Wonderful reading of Lewis' classic story."

    Wonderful reading of Lewis' classic story. I recommend all the Chronicles of Narnia books for children- probably better for ages 8 and up - I love them, so a great experience for all.

    "Great Book with Great Narration"

    Alex Jennings' voice is very animated and soothing all at the same time. Of all the narrative voices, I feel that his is the best on developing each of the character's voices without being over the top. Most of the narrative voices grate on my ears after a while, but Alex Jennings stands heads above any other narrator I've heard thus far ... and I'm a grandparent!

    Regarding the book 'The Horse and His Boy', it is one of my favorites in the Chronicles of Narnia series. It covers humility versus pride, servitude versus selfishness, also integrity and nobility of character are conveyed and encouraged ... which we should all aspire to attain. This is an excellent book for teaching goodly character to children.

    "Boring"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    My husband and I listened to this book on the way to our parent's house for Christmas. It was the first audible book he had listened to in the Narnia series, so I was excited for him to listen. But this book was boring. I kept falling asleep in the passenger's seat. It wasn't exciting and, quite honestly, it was a bit predictable. The performance was fine, but the story just wasn't the best of the series.

    "The Battle Begins"

    Shasta is such a brave little boy that has the adventure of a lifetime. He met a young woman and two talking horses that had much of the adventure with him. I enjoyed this book.

    Story
    "A different take on Narnia"

    Here we see a talking horse helping out a boy who is lost. Instead of telling the story from the perspective of the boy, we see it from the horse's perspective. We see a young orphan making his way across a country wondering why people keep wanting to catch him. We see the kids from the ‘Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ as adults leading as they talk about at the end of that book. We see Arsheesh coming back and playing the prophet/Christ figure in the story. In the end it’s a good story for kids to listen to.

    Story
    "Very engaging"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend this. This is the best unabriged audio version of this book. Our entire family gets drawn in every time someone turns it on.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how the story brings everything together toward the end, and the action, while not shy of danger, is not gory. The style is well suited for boys and girls of many ages.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Toward the end, the main character is shown how he was cared for all along, though he had seen it as nothing but trouble. The time his eyes are opened is rather moving.
