Series: Chronicles of Narnia
The Chronicles of Narnia Audio Collection brings all seven of C.S. Lewis's beloved Narnia tales to life, as they are read by some of the world's most celebrated and renowned performers.
Clive Staples Lewis was born in 1898. Known as "Jack" by his friends, Lewis and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, were part of a writer's club, The Inklings, who would meet at the local pub to discuss story ideas. Lewis's fascination with fairytales, myths, and ancient legends coupled with inspiration drawn from his childhood led him to write The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further books in the immensely popular Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, received the Carnegie Award, one of the highest marks of excellence in children's literature.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.
Ian Richardson is a distinguished stage, film and television actor and a former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company. His film credits include M. Butterfly, Dark City, and most recently, From Hell.
Claire Bloom gained international fame in 1951 with her screen debut in Charles Chaplin’s motion picture Limelight. Among her many memorable films are Richard III, The Haunting, Look Back in Anger, and A Doll’s House.

Amy1 Stars Out Of 5March 5, 2010AmyI love the Narnia Chronicles. That said, this cassette series was a disappointment. It cuts out a lot of key scenes (in order to get each book on a single audiocasette, I suppose)--and my kids definitely noticed--which leaves the flow of the stories awkward, even stilted. Even for the price, they're not worth it--put the money towards the Focus on the Family radio drama version (Excellent!)--after one listen, we probably won't play these again... especially after hearing the Focus on the Family version (lively, doesn't cut corners in the plot, lots and lots of word-for-word dialogue with super casting and magnificent sound effects). The only points this production gets from me is for selecting excellent material (Chronicles of Narnia), but the execution is not impressive.
Chris Todd4 Stars Out Of 5July 21, 2009Chris ToddThe famous British actors reading the tales are superb. While all of the novels are represented they are abridged. If you know the stories well, you will be irritated. But they might be a good introduction for kids, or something they could listen to in the car, before they can read the books.
Ruth Culmer3 Stars Out Of 5July 20, 2009Ruth CulmerThe Narnia adventures are wonderful. For the price, these cassettes are good. I would, however, encourage reader-listeners to spend the money and get either the unabridged CDs or, if you prefer an abridgement, buy the Focus on the Family dramatization of the Chronicles. It is well worth the price. Just a note, some of these Narnia books, tapes and CDs are for my grandchildren--and I have a set of my own too! C.S. Lewis outlines the Christian walk in beatuiful allegorical style in the Chronicles or Narnia. Yet, in a way that captures young and old hearts alike!
Kimberly Nobles4 Stars Out Of 5July 17, 2009Kimberly NoblesVery nicely done abridged reading. It has all the parts that you wouldn't want to miss. The only thing to make it better would be to have the entire books read.
