C. S. Lewis, author of the classic Chronicles of Narnia series, said of MacDonald, What he does best is fantasyfantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. And this, in my opinion, he does better than any man. MacDonald is the greatest genius of this kind whom I know.

It was a very faithful adaptation of the book which I had read years ago. My 9, 12, and 13 year old son and daughters thoroughly enjoyed it. Not to give too much away, the story is a Christian allegory and somewhat of a fairytale by George McDonald who was C.S. Lewis' inspiration for the Narnia Chronicles. The actors are wonderful and the events unfold quickly. We listened to the story while driving around just during the day. The chapters are short so even a trip down to the grocery store could be enjoyed by listening to one chapter on the way there. Definitely listen to this one! It will touch your heart and open up doors to talk to your kiddos about God and trusting in Him.
Harry Briley5 Stars Out Of 5Two hankies. A keeper.December 6, 2013Harry BrileyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just finished, while partially hanging up Christmas decor, listening to "At the Back of the North Wind" - George MacDonald (FOTF Radio Theater, 2005) - A children's fantasy from Victorian England about dying that influenced C.S.Lewis and Mark Twain. Is the fragile boy feverish or did he find the far country? This absorbing two hours felt only an hour. I had to stop decorating and just sat entranced by the skill of these voice actors with their British accents. Rating: Two hankies. A keeper.

FranCarrollton, GAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Lovely story; deep theologyMay 3, 2013FranCarrollton, GAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We listened to this during a long car trip. Our teenagers loved the story, and it set up some great discussions about the Bible and heaven. Younger children, while not grasping the entire story, will enjoy the characters and the action. I love George MacDonald's stories. The only problem with this one was the portrayal of the whiny mom...that's cause I'm the mom, and one of my mantras is "shine, not whine"!
This is a great value! I'll be lending it out to trustworthy friends who'll return it, 'cause we'll listen to this one again a few years down the road.
Auntie PamAthens OHAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good choice for middle schoolersDecember 12, 2012Auntie PamAthens OHAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Bought this for my 7 year old granddaughter. After previewing the CD, I will wait until she is a little older before giving it to her. The subject matter is about death, and could be scarey for a young child. On a technical note, I had to adjust the audio tone on my stereo, in order to clearly hear the actors speaking. Overall, I was pleased with this purchase.
