    "A Wonderful Conclusion"

    Never has a story so broken my heart and then so completely mended it with such overwhelming happiness. There truly could not have been a better conclusion to "The Chronicles of Narnia."

    "Worth multiple listens"

    Sir Patrick Stewart's narration of this excellent story is superb! Well done! C.S. Lewis concludes the Chronicles of Narnia in a most satisfying fashion.

    "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.

    Story
    "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

    "The end that doesn't end"

    First, the narrator for this book is Sir Patrick Stewart. That alone makes it awesome, although the story is already good. Yes, it's the end of the Narnia series, and a lot of bad things happen, but it also opens the door to a joyful new beginning. In some ways, this may be my favorite Narnia book, even though it always makes me cry. And this audio version is the best, because Captain Picard makes it so.

    "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.
