The White Witch, Aslan, fauns and talking beasts, centaurs and epic battles between good and evil: these have become a part of our collective imagination through the classic volumes of The Chronicles of Narnia. Yet who was the man who created this world? This audiobook attempts to unearth the making of the first Narnian, C. S. Lewis himself.

This is a fantastic book. I've listened to it at least 10 times. Alan Jacobs does a wonderful job narrating, particularly because he wrote the book! Somehow that makes his narration more meaningful. The theme of Lewis' imagination is beautifully carried throughout the narrative. Lewis' wisdom and wit is evident throughout. The writer really showed forth his love for his subject.
