Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

A Who's Who of famous British actors and actresses lined up to read this classic, so simply hearing voices that you'll likely recognize from stage and screen is a pleasure.
But Lewis himself -- and millions of parents since his era -- regard these novels as opportunities to read aloud. That makes them perfect material for these masterful performers -- and lets us, even as adults, become children again as listen.
This set is unabridged, which will be greatly appreciated by all Lewis fans. Nothing worse than investing in an audio version of a best-loved book and finding your own favorite bits missing in the new rendition. Here, every magic wand, gleaming sword and swish of the Great Lion's tail is faithfully included.
