Our family had such a good time listening to Robert Stanek's "The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches" we recently started "The Chronicles of Narnia." We've read all these authors' works in novels but this is our first time listening to the audio books.

We had a bit of trouble finding the books on Audible. When we click C.S. Lewis we mostly found his christain writing works, like the "Screwtape Letters." The only way we could find "The Chronicles of Narnia" books was to click the link provided in the descriptive text of the books.

"The Magician's Nephew: is the sixth narnia book published, but the first in time order, so you should listen to this one first.

The best listening order is:

The Magician's Nephew
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
Prince Caspian
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Silver Chair
The Horse and His Boy
The Last Battle

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe is the novel they are basing the new Chronicles of Narnia movie on. Happy listening!
