Review: 

Focus on the Family has produced an audio version of all of the Narnia books ( Available on CD or audio cassette). The stories are elegantly introduced by Douglas Grisham, stepson of C.S. Lewis. Mr. Grisham draws listeners into the story by recounting his personal experiences with C.S. Lewis ("or 'Jack' as he liked to be called"). Thus far, three books have been reproduced- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Magician's Nephew, and The Horse and His Boy.

Each story, although abridged, is masterfully told. The characters are well-formed and the sound effects are terrific. Having read all of the Narnia series aloud, and loved them, our family had very high expectations. The audio version of these classics fully lived up to our expectations.

Each book is approximately two hours [or more] of listening time. The audio versions of the Narnia books are an excellent purchase!
