Would you consider the audio edition of The Magician's Nephew to be better than the print version?

Yes!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Magician's Nephew?

Aslan's creation of Narnia

What does Kenneth Branagh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His reading style is fast-paced and seems to make listening to the book an adventure. He is the best reader i have heard so far.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Wanted to but didn't. 3 sittings.

Any additional comments?

Excellent book.
