We have enjoyed this set very much. They are wonderful for long trips in a vehicle. Sometimes I think the voices are a little overdone, particularly when a man is reading a girls voice. They really don't have to be quite that high! But still we find them well done.
Thankfully I took note of who produced this... This is Not the Focus on the Family Version. I prefer Radio/Audio Drama with a full cast.
This product is simply 1 person reading the book - good for most people I suppose - but not the exciting full cast of actors one would expect that brings C.S. Lewis's books to greater heights of realism that pulls one into Narnia.
WONDERFUL! Keeps my children entertained for hours

I love this collection. Each book on cd is read by a different person, and the voices they use are wonderful. It captures the attention of children! We like to take it with us wherever we go. Its perfect for long trips in the car, when the kids get bored just pop it in and instantly their hooked! I have also found for my youngest learning to read its fun for her to follow along with the book.
This cd set is wonderful! We were really thankful to find the full, unabridged Chronicles of Narnia on CD, and we were additionally pleased to find it narrated so well. We appreciate the focus on narration rather than additional "dramatic" effects. This allows Lewis' stories to shine without distraction, and it means that young children can listen without becoming scared. My 7 year old son sits for hours, book in hand, listening to the CDs, and we expect that they will be very good for long car-rides as well!
