I enjoyed the Narnia Books when I was a child and to listen to them again now was brilliant. You don't loose any of the story even with it being abridge.

A fantastic story which is well written and the narration brought the story to life brilliantly. Didn't want the book to end and can't wait for the next book in the series. Outstanding 10/10.
