The best Narnia audiobooks - accept no substitute

What did you like most about The Silver Chair?

It is one of my favourite Narnia stories because the character of Puddleglum is brilliant and the story balances mystery, humour and darkness so well.

What does Sir Michael Hordern bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Michael Hordern's reading is the best performance of any Narnia audiobook, he is master and reads with perfect emphasis and gravitas. His voice is unforgettable and adds a sense of timelessness.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have read and listened to this book hundreds of times since childhood, it has made me laugh and kept my attention all these years. I am so happy that Audible stocks is so that I can keep it in my library and take it wherever I go.

Any additional comments?

I also love the rest of this series, performed by Michael Hordern with music composed especially by harpist Marisa Robles. The music adds a whole new dimension of otherworldly beauty, light and fear. I love it so much I also bought the album, I believe it is called The Narnia Suite.
