    "I'm impressed with Patrick Stewart"

    I never would have pegged Patrick Stewart to be an audiobook reader, but I bought this with an extra credit and took a chance. He's not the finest reader I've ever listened to (Jim Dale is my favorite), but he does an excellent job. I'd be happy to listen to more books by him. The only criticism I have is that he said "Turnus" near the end of the novel when he meant "Tumnus."
    As for the book itself, I love the Chronicles of Narnia. C. S. Lewis just has a way of painting images of joy and wonder, as well as terrible images that make you sad. And he has a way with relatable analogies. This is one of those books that tugs at my heartstrings. I would, of course, recommend that you read/listen to the other books first—this is the last of the series. But when you do, this one is a good way to end.

    Story
    "Classic series, classic narrator"
    Have you listened to any of Patrick Stewart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first experience hearing Sir Patrick Stewart as a narrator, and he had a wonderful voice for this series. I've got all 7 of the Chronicles of Narnia on audiobook now, and the quality of narration varies widely. For example, Lynn Redgrave has a good reading voice, but her Aslan was poor in my opinion. My only complaint about the reading in this book was a stumble or two on words that should have been corrected prior to release - calling Mr. Tumnus "Mr. Turnus", for example. Frankly, I wish Sir Patrick Stewart would do the other six books as well!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish all seven of the Chronicles had been broken down into more sections. Five sections for a whole audiobook causes too much searching to find a select passage.

    "C.S. Lewis AND Patrick Stewart - Win! Win!"

    My kids loved all six of the previous Narnia stories that we purchased in this series of audio books. Of course, C. S. Lewis does not disappoint with this last, beautiful offering. Patrick Stewart was a perfect narrator for The Last Battle. His voice has a beautiful range and he needed all of his skills to capture the despair and beauty and triumph in this work. This was a home run in our house.

    "GREAT "END OF THE WORLD" ANALOGY"
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Battle the most enjoyable?

    AN AWESOME STORY OF THE CHOICES WE MUST MAKE AT THE END OF TIME, AND THE FANTASTIC READING PERFORMANCE OF THE ACTOR PATRICK STEWART.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Battle?

    THE DWARFS' STAUNCH RESISTANCE TO BE "TAKEN IN" BY THE PEOPLE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE BATTLE, MADE THEM UNABLE TO BE "TAKEN OUT" OF THE DARKNESS IN THE END


    What does Patrick Stewart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    GREAT INFLECTION IN THE NARATION, AND ACTING OUT EACH CHARACTER


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

    THE CHILDREN'S REUNION WITH ASLAN

    "Jean Luc Picard reads this story."

    Patrick Stewart should have read the entire series. I loved his ability to bring this story alive. This was a great conclusion for the story and had a perfect explanation of the unpardonable sin.

    "Wonderful book!"

    This is my favorite book in the Chronicles of Narnia... it is wonderful to have it as an audible book.

    Was a bit disappointed with Patrick Stewart's reading - I think I had too high of expectations as I love his acting. Once I got used to his style, I really enjoyed the book.

    "Absolutely Wonderful!!"
    What did you love best about The Last Battle?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Narnia series, but to have the final book narrated by Patrick Steward was a great surprise and a HUGE bonus! All of the narrators did a wonderful job, but Patrick Stewart has an amazing presence. I felt like I was really hearing all of the characters exactly as C.S. Lewis had in his mind when he wrote the book.
    Well done!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    King Tirian never doubted Aslan, the great lion. This story showed the love of the lion and how he always had a plan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they all realized they were in the real Narnia. This is a great picture of heaven.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Happily Ever After...


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful!!

    Story
    "Great, but as plain as an Allegory can be."
    What made the experience of listening to The Last Battle the most enjoyable?

    Patrick Stuart had to be one of the most drawing points to this Audio Book. Whether a fan of Star Trek or just a Charles Dickins fan, his voice evokes images of kindness, nobility and wisdom all at once.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I've always loved the Chronicles of Narnia ever since I was a child. I'm also the son of a Baptist minister and therefore know the book of Revelation well. We know that most, if not all the Chronicles are allegories for biblical tales. This one however, is just about as plain as an allegory can get. If you are a devout christian, I'm sure you'll love it and this tale will bring you to tears nearly every moment. I however subsribe to the school of thought that Tolkien did, whiich is to say that if you write an allegory, it will only ever be an allegory for what you have written it to be. However, if the story you write is great in itself, it can be used as an allegory for many many things. This book simply is an allegory for The book of Revelation. If you know the book of Revelation, you already know this story. If you are a reformed christian then I'd almost say don't bother. You'll just find yourself saying things like "Okay, so this character is supposed to be the false prophet, these characters are supposed to be good christians, thses characters are supposed to be Muslims, Azlan is Jesus and the great emperor over the sea is God. You're nothing but one of the dwarves to C.S. Lewis. Basically, I liked it the first time when I read it in the Bible.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the description of the death of Narnia.
