Beschreibung von Audible

If you've only seen the movie, you haven't really experienced the full power of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.

Four siblings enter a wardrobe and find themselves in Narnia, a magical, but dark wintry land ruled by the evil White Witch. In many ways darker and deeper than the Harry Potter series, the story takes on a life of its own in the reverential and spirited voice of Michael York. The beauty of the story owes much to the real world background of England during World War II. The four young heroes and Aslan the lion are lovingly created and detailed, and audio brings them to brighter life in one's imagination than any movie or visual recording can.

Michael York's reading of this treasure is as enchanting as the story. His British accent is fitting, all intonations are perfect, and he adds just the right amount of drama in all the right places. Have your family gather around your favorite speakers for this one, or save it for yourself -- a perfect antidote to a rainy day.

Inhaltsangabe

Don't miss one of America's top 100 most-loved novels, selected by PBS's The Great American Read.

Four adventurous siblings - Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie - step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change...and a great sacrifice.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is the second book in C. S. Lewis' classic fantasy series, which has been drawing readers and listeners of all ages into a magical land with unforgettable characters for over 60 years. This is a stand-alone listen, but if you would like to explore more of the Narnian realm, follow up with The Horse and His Boy, the third book in The Chronicles of Narnia.

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

Kritikerstimmen

"The only thing better than exploring Narnia with your children is having Michael York do it with you. With his precise, but lively, British accent, he eases listeners into the mysterious world hidden behind the wardrobe." (AudioFile)

"This classic tale celebrates its 50th anniversary with a delightful audio rendition. Actor Michael York's reading is a perfect match for this story." (School Library Journal

Enchanting story dully narrated

Since childhood I just love C.S.Lewis Narnia Chronicles. For years I had an abridged version on tape read by various narrators. I was keen to finally get an unabridged version, but was very disappointed by Michael York. He ill adapts to the differnt characters of the story.
