Publisher's Summary

Narnia...where the owls speak, where evil weaves a spell, where sorcery enslaves the land.

Narnia is in peril, and only Eustace and Jill can help. Along with Puddlegum, a gloomy but valiant Marsh-wiggle, they are sent by the mighty lion Aslan to find Prince Rilian, heir to the throne. Their quest leads them past hungry people-eating Giants, and deep into the dark underground. But the true test for this noble band of friends comes when they face an evil witch and her deadly enchantments.

This was the fourth book written in The Chronicles of Narnia. It now stands as the sixth book in the series.

Don't miss any of the books in C.S. Lewis' classic Chronicles of Narnia series.

    "Eustace's Return"

    A true Narnian adventure featuring the much-changed cousin Eustace and a new adventurer, Jill. This story features giants, witches, princes, marshwiggles, and an underground city. It is slightly reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz in the end, but fun with entertaining adventures and creatures.

    Story
    "Best narration -- ever!"
    Would you listen to The Silver Chair again? Why?

    I have listened to The Silver Chair repeatedly. Jeremy Northam's narration is never boring. The best part of listening to it recently is I have turned my 7-year-old grandniece onto Narnia via audible.com


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character of Puddleglum, the best, most unconventional hero ever.


    What about Jeremy Northam’s performance did you like?

    Jeremy Northam is masterful in creating characters. You recognize each character the minute he speaks, and he invests the most minor with personality and substance. My absolute favorite part? When he voices the evil Queen when she resorts to type: "What are you doing? Touch my fire again, mud filth, and I will turn the blood to fire in your veins!" Worth listening for that moment alone.


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

    Well, that would be basically impossible, unless you were on an extended road trip.


    Any additional comments?

    The Chronicles of Narnia are probably the best book series on audio available today. Jeremy Northam is my favorite (followed closely by Alex Jennings reading "A Horse and His Boy"), but all of the books are well worth listening to.

    "Nice story and awesome performance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Silver Chair to be better than the print version?

    Both are nice. Audio edition is nice when I don't have time to set down to read. I listen to it in the gym.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silver Chair?

    The prince appeal to the children to set him free.


    What about Jeremy Northam’s performance did you like?

    the way he mimic the owl speaking is quite cute.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. I have read the book before

    "Car trip review"

    My kids and I had read the 'first' three books then watched the films. I decided to do the Audible version on a car trip to keep them off screens and tablets. The story is fairly weak when compared to the others, and the allegory is a lot less transparent. Eustace isn't given much to do and Pole is the weakest female character in the series so far. All she seems to do is complain and threaten to faint. Despite Eustace' character development in the last book, it shows only slightly in this one. Jeremy Northram does a stellar job at acting out the characters with a bit of Michael Caine impression thrown in. Worth the price.

    Story
    "Northam only enhances the magic!"
    What does Jeremy Northam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Northam is the perfect "Narnian" narrator for me. He's able to give each character voice, without being too melodramatic in invasive. For me, it is curtail that narration isn't too dramatic - I want to feel like I'm being read to, not like I'm at the theatre. At the same time, you don't want someone so monotonous they put you to sleep (unless you do!). Northam is the perfect balance for me. I particularly loved his use of different English accents and dialects to voice the different characters.

    Story
    "Classic Narnia, beautifully done"
    Would you listen to The Silver Chair again? Why?

    The story and characters are engaging and there is much spiritual depth, when looking beyond the surface.


    What other book might you compare The Silver Chair to and why?

    Other Narnian chronicles, primarily Voyage of the Dawntreader, The Horse and His Boy, and The Last Battle. These are particularly profound and insightful in Christian terms, as well as being good stories, to be enjoyed by both children and adults.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Puddleglum breaking the enchantment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It always makes me think: do I remember my assignment and the signs in my own life? Is my focus on my comfort or on Aslan?


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful performance by Jeremy Northam, who avoids the tendency many have to overact in the narration.

    "Loved it"

    It has taken me years to come to love it. Michael Ward's _Planet Narnia_ was a big help to understand what Lewis was doing with these stories beyond the obvious. Give it a read too!
