    "My favorite of the series; awesome narration!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This might be my favorite of the Narnia series but all are good and a must read. I absolutely LOVED the narration by Alex Jennings! I wish he narrated all in the series - and all of my favorite audio books!

    "Good, but not my favorite"

    My son and I enjoyed reading/listening to it, but we enjoyed LWW & MN much better. Perhaps this story will become clearer after reading Silver Chair & Last Battle (books 6 & 7).

    "Great Story, Distracting Narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, This is classic lewis


    What other book might you compare The Horse and His Boy to and why?

    There are no comparisons.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alex Jennings’s performances?

    Not if I can avoid it. His impression of women speaking frankly freaks me out and when he does other impressions you cannot understand what he is saying. I think clarity is more important than his attempt at impression


    Do you think The Horse and His Boy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Already has them


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see this done by another narrator.

    "Not Lewis' Best"

    While C.S. Lewis has definately written better Narnian adventures, this does not fall into the category of the worst. It is entertaining and full of action and adventure. The down-side is that we never see these two characters again as the series jumps 100 years into the future with the next book.

    "Rating for book not the audio"

    I remember reading this book as a kid and some how I did not see all the prejudice themes in the book. Now some 40 years later I see the good and evil in the book by I'm left wondering why Lewis could not have been less stereotyping in the characters. (Dark skin versus light skin) Lewis gets 2 stars for this book (not that he cares now)

    However, I would give the narrator 4 stars. He was ever engaging even when the story would make me mad for stereotyping.
