My son has loved listening to these on long car journeys as he would get car sick if he read a book. They’re really nicely produced and outstanding value for audio books.
Nostalgia unlimited! -
Here's the thing, I am 49 and have only ever read The Lion in this series, hence my purchase for a long work commute.
After much debate and research, I decided to listen in the order prescribed on the tin, which is not publication order. Yes there is a huge debate as to how one should read/listen to these books, but I decided to go with the flow. I am really enjoying the books, some may say that they are dated, indeed they are, but this simply adds to their charm. I don't remember hansom cabs, but I do remember scraping frost away from an inside window in the winter time.
Narnia will always have a special place in my heart, and these audio books are proving to be an exceptional buy. I loved the presentation case, with Aslan himself on the front. If more children listened to the tales here, maybe they too would grow to love a place grown in their imagination, and not from a digital medium.

Lovely collection -
This is a lovely collection in a sturdy metal carry case, nice and compact. It arrived on time, well packaged and at a great price. I'm absolutely delighted with it. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent CDs -
Excellent set of audiobooks. Wonderful stories read very well. A 'not-to-be-missed' set at a great price.
Only downside is the set does not come in the correct order, either inside the case or indeed in the written list of titles printed on the case. Quite a big, unnecessary mistake which means you can't just work through the CDs but have to work out the correct order to read the titles in. Hence, 4 stars rather than 5.
Thanks for the review
We will pass your feedback on to the publisher but please note that the correct order to listen to the CDs in is listed on the back of the tin.
