    "A humourous tale of bravery"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Horse and His Boy: The Chronicles of Narnia, Book 5 to be better than the print version?

    The print is better with the illustrations by Pauline Baynes, but the audiobook is great to listen along with while reading.


    Which character – as performed by Alex Jennings – was your favorite?

    Bree the horse was my favourite character as he had to overcome his cowardice in a time of danger to help Shasta deliver his message. Alex Jennings did a great job with all the character voices.

    "The Importance of Being Human"
    Would you listen to The Horse and His Boy again? Why?

    As I love 'The Chronicles of Narnia' and this is part of them, I would always read it in its place in the series. It is not my favourite book in the Chronicles, but it is an important part.


    If you’ve listened to books by C.S. Lewis before, how does this one compare?

    My comment above really covers this question. I think it is important to read the Chronicles in the order in which the events happen in Narnia, so this book cannot be skipped.

    One thing I enjoyed was having a different reader for each of the 7 books. For me that added a lot of interest and quality.


    Have you listened to any of Alex Jennings’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard Alex Jennings narrate anything else.


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

    This would have to be the moment when Shasta/Cor and his father are reunited.


    Any additional comments?

    The book keeps the story of Narnia alive and moves it onward. Read/listen to it.

    "a joy"

    This book was so beautifully written and so easy to listen to. The way it was written JUST SUPERB. I was mesmorized by the way the author wrote every word. Before I new it, it was finished.

    "Horse and his Boy My favourite CS Lewis book"

    AS always great story and adventure of Narnian tales. All are standalone stories or can be read in conjunction with the rest in the series. Very easy read. I prefer the audio books as I usually listen whilst travelling and cannot read and travel whatever vehicle I travel in, usually by train.
