The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Four siblings enter a
wardrobe and find themselves in Narnia, a magical, but dark wintry land
ruled by the evil White Witch. Published in 1950, the story is set to the
real world background of England during World War II. Readers easily made comparison to their own wartime experiences. The book is made even more interesting because of its strong Christian overtones.
Audible reviewers wrote, "The four young
heroes and Aslan the lion are lovingly created and detailed, and audio
[narrated by Michael York] brings them to brighter life in one's
imagination than any movie or visual recording can."
York's reading of this classic is as "enchanting" as the story. "His
British accent is fitting, all intonations are perfect, and he adds just
the right amount of drama in all the right places." The narration of
each character is distinct and fits perfectly their personalities.
