"Lewis's storytelling is magnificent, and Branagh's performance completely and utterly engaging." (AudioFile)
This is a great story that was done justice with a great reader. I read the story a long time ago as a boy and heard it over two days! It's a great story and the reader takes on different voices that really make it all come together. I recommend it!
I love this story and had already read it together with my 4 year old when she requested it again. Listening to this story together we both loved Kenneth Branagh's voices for all of the characters - and the magic he brought. I'm extremely picky with my readers and usually end up disappointed, but Kenneth Branagh is incredible. One of the best readers I've ever heard.
I absolutely loved this thought provoking story. I will always enjoy Narnia and Audible books. I would recommend this book to anyone who asked!! I would also always recommend audible.
Love, love, love the Narnia stories and Kenneth Branagh did a fabulous job reading "The Magician's Nephew"; his various character voices were captivating and I enjoyed it more than I thought possible.
Classic beginning of the Chronicles of Narnia. This explains some of the questions you may have after reading what you thought was book number 1. Well narrated, quick listen. Highly recommended.
