C.S. Lewis tells his remarkable tales of the magical land of Narnia and its immortal inhabitants including Aslan the lion, Mr Tumnus the Faun and the evil White Witch. This collection features the seven novels that together make up the complete Chronicles so that the adventures of Aslan and his friends can be read over and over again

The edition itself was in superb condition. Although you can see that it is a used book, there are very few creases and folds, certainly nothing major. The cover is an impressive graphic of Aslan the Lion. The paper is nice and bright and the font size not too small.
I am very pleased with this purchase.
What makes this box set so special is the musical score that was written for it. The books are read by Michael Hordan, who is sadly no longer with us. He has a wonderfully distinctive voice which really transports the reader in to Narnia in a way that no other reader has ever managed. His narration is accompanied by some beautiful music played on harp and flute.
I first got these books from the library when I was quite little, and my life-long love of Narnia was born. They remain some of my favourite books and I was delighted when they came out on CD years later and I was able to by them. I well remember lying on my bed, listening to The scene in The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe when Aslan is killed, sobbing my heart out. His death was accompanied by Moon Light Sonata, which made it all the more powerful, and is consequently my favourite piece of classical music.
I can hear people saying, "music and narration together? Oh please no!" but I assure you, it really does work, and it's not the whole way through. There are certain theme tunes you come to recognize, like those for Aslan or the white which. I remember trying to listen to the books without music and it just wasn't the same. It just helps to add an extra bit of wonder and magic to Lewes's timeless imagination.
Is a great product and I'm very pleased, so's my sister!

Books are a lovely read - just as they were when I read them as a child. The reason for the 4 star rather than 5 star rating is that the publisher is obviously American and the... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
