    Story
    "A bittersweet conclusion."

    Unlike the prior novels, The Last Battle begins in the land of Narnia. Many generations have passed since Eustace and Jill freed Prince Rillian from the sinister enchantments of theEmerald Witch in The Silver Chair. Since tat time, Narnia has enjoyed a long period of peace and prosperity. But now a new evil threatens Narnia in the form of Shift, an old, cunning Ape, who finds a lion's skin and persuades his friend Puzzle, a well-meaning if simple donkey, to don the skin and pretend to be Aslan, who has not been seen in Narnia for many geneations. Far away from this, King Tirian of Narnia is enjoying a vacation at a hunting lodge with his riend Jewel, a unicorn. He is visited by Runewit, a Centaur, who warns that Narnia is facing an era of darkness and chaos. The first signs of this become apparent when the king receives news that talking trees are being cut down for lumber, which is being sold to the Calormenes, who have always been enemies of Narnia. The situation becomes even more desperate when Tirian is captured and bound to a tree. But all is not lost, for Aslan summons all those who ave had a hand in the creation and protection of Narnia, minus Susan, who has drifted away from Narnia and its values over the years. Together these friends prepare to fight a battle that could mark the end of Narnia.
    As with the other books in the series, THe Last Battle is read by a distinguished British actor, in this case Patrick Stewart, best known to some as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. He does this tale reat justice with his deep, calm and versitile voice. I finished the entire book in less than a day simply because I couldn't put it down.

    "Narnia Chronicles come to a great conclusion"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book due to the dynamic nature of the story and the theology so deeply woven throughout.


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

    I love the scene when the dwarves refuse to believe they are in Alsan's country and act as if they are trapped in a dirty stable. C.S. Lewis uses this to illustrate the way in which some people refuse the good things that come their way by being


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Stewart – was your favorite?

    Stewart has a good range of voices and keeps the story going, I especially liked his voice for Puzzle the donkey.


    Any additional comments?

    While the theology is unavoidable it does not overwhelm the story or make it inaccessible to the children I have read it to, though some are very sad that Narnia comes to an end.

    "A good ending"

    The whole Narnia series was great, but this was the only book in it that I listened to . I loved the fact that Patrick Stewart narrated it. It was shorter than I expected. The ending was perfect - though bittersweet, and it was appropriate for the allegory.

    "Sad to get to the end..."

    A little slow to start, but it really picked up toward the middle. I was a little sad knowing this was the last Narnia book, but I couldn't wait to get to the next chapter to see how it would end. Patrick Stewart narrating was great!

    "One of my favorites!"

    This book has always struck me in a very positive way. It defies the common Christian belief that knowing God makes going to heaven an unquestionable desire, and in addition you must know and believe in God in order to gain entrance to heaven. Who a person is internally defines their future, not what they say.

    Patrick Stewart does a magnificent job of reading this book--the perfect voice, reflecting the different characters clearly!

    "Patrick Stewart A Voice of Beauty"

    This is already a classic book that I have read many times growing up, but I joined audible just to get this narrated by Patrick Stewart. He has a way of making anything sound good and this book is brought to life by him. I wish he narrated them all and hope he continues to narrate books.

    "Great Book"

    I had read the books before, but to have them read to me while I drive was amazing. Great story with some good Bible based lessons. The lessons are not pointed out, but they are certainly there.
