One of my all time favorite books since I was a child has always been ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe‘ I was delighted to hear that to mark its 50th anniversary, the entire series of ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ had been made into an audio book. I have always felt that fantasy is the type of genre that works best in audio book form, mainly due to it’s imaginative writing and wonderfully descriptive language.
When I listened to the new audio book version of ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’ I felt as though I had been transformed not only back to my childhood but to the enchanting world of Narnia. Paul Scofield, with his fantastic voice and brilliant talent for story telling, was the perfect choice as narrator and he tells the exciting, fantasy story of four young children Lucy, Peter, Susan and Edmund embarking on their magical journey, with just the right amount of light and shade in his voice. His smooth, warm English accent adds the perfect feel to this famous old English classic.
Old Narnia fans will not be disappointed by this wonderful rendition of their favorite book and new fans will want to listen to it over and over again. This audio book version is the perfect way to pass the time and completely allow yourself to be lost in the magical world of Narnia. Whether you are a fan or not, it is the perfect addition to any audio book collection.
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe audio book (4 hours and 22 minutes in duration) is available to download now to your iPod, Mp3 Player, Computer or CD.
