    1. When I was younger, The Magician's Nephew was by far my least favorite Narnia story. During my recent audio theater spree, I popped it in mostly out of curiosity and because it's the least listened to of our Narnia CDs. It's days of under-use are over. While I do agree with some who say C.S. Lewis' writing style leaves something to be desired, his brilliant story telling more than makes up for it, and the timeless themes show why it is so popular. With this story, I appreciate it far more now th [...]


    2. No matter how many times I listen to this series on audio book, it never ceases to bring tears to my eyes or make me just sit there and smile. One of my favourite series for sure!



    3. If I had to stuck on an island with just several books to read over and over, I would choose the Chronicles of Narnia. C.S. Lewis is masterful in his descriptions of people, landscapes, and events, and his language is capable of evoking nearly every human emotion. Although there is some disagreement about the reading order (order of publication, or chronological) I prefer the chronological, and apparently Lewis did as well: Lewis expressed a mild preference for this second, chronological order. [...]


    4. Loved, the story. It was engaging and kept my interest throughout. I loved the almost whimsical feel to the writing, and delighted in the humor. I've read some of Lewis' other non-fiction books, and appreciate his writing style - in this case, I think I might have preferred simply reading the books over the audio recording I listened to. It felt rather over the top to me, and the sound was quite uneven, sometimes extremely loud, and other times difficult to hear. Over all though, engaging enough [...]


    5. The best audiobooks ever. We're enjoying this as a whole family on car trips/in the evenings. Yes, they are slightly abridged and adapted, but the variety of voices, sound effects, and the pacing make these stories just as engaging for me as for my 7 year old! A great way to introduce her to Narnia!



    6. Superb book. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the story of Narnia where we can get only through magic. The book evokes ones imagination.


    7. When I saw "adaptation," I lowered my expectations. But this was very well done. Pleasantly surprised. Great actors, great sounds effects, great score. Movie-quality score.


    8. Ich mag diese Hörspieladaption. Tolle Musikuntermalung und Soundeffekte. Einzig Aslans Stimme finde ich irgendwie doof. Er klingt so eingebildet und überstolz. Soll er ja als allmächtiger Löwe sicher auch, aber das hat ihn mir ziemlich unsympathisch gemacht.An diesem Band ist auf jeden Fall total schön, dass man die Anfänge Narnias miterlebt. Hier wird der Grundstein für alles, was man später noch kennen lernt gelegt.


    9. [This review is of the Focus on the Family audio drama version].A decent production - Nathaniel Lippiett and Jessica Fox were very good as Polly and Digory, while Elizabeth Counsell gave a less-than-satisfactory performance as Jadis. The narration was somewhat irritating, and I found myself wishing that it was a true dramatization rather than something more akin to an enhanced audiobook.All in all, a fun adaption of one of my favorite Narnia novels.


    10. This is my second listen through this adaptation and I'm still astounded that they trimmed Uncle Andrew's story so much. Still, it's well done, even if Suchet's Aslan gets in the way of the latter half of the story.


    11. Such a great recording!! I listen to this a lot. :) Magician's Nephew ranks in the top of my favorites from the Narnia series. Along with Silver Chair, Horse and His Boy, and Voyage of the Dawn Treader, this is a favorite! Not to mention this is so dramatic. :)


    12. My husband and I listend to this over the month of August. It was refreshing to hear the story again, but this time in audio format. I was pleased with the presentation, and hope to listen to the rest of the series, soon! (=


    13. I learned learning about who Professor Digory really was. And I couldn't help but get the feeling that Aslan was setting the stage for WWII and the terrible things that were to come.



    14. excellent audio edition, except for Aslan. He sounds a little weird and not exactly what you would think he would sound like. But still excellent.


    15. This was the first audio book I've listened to all the way through and it was amazing! I've always loved this Narnia story, might be my favorite one!


    16. Listened to this on vacation. It was fun to revisit the story. The Radio Theatre aspect ratcheted up the drama and made for some great entertainment on the long car ride.




    17. A pretty solid radio drama adaptation. Sometimes the narration/acting gets a bit muddied with too many voices or sound effects at once, but I suppose it's realistic?
