Eustace and Jill don’t remember all the signs and directions given by the great lion Aslan, but he nonetheless guides them through their adventure in Narnia in search of the missing Prince Rilian. This sixth in Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia series easily stands alone, particularly with its phenomenal production attributes. Perfect casting choices render every character to the letter, complete with background mumblings and assorted nonvocal sounds. Musical interludes both introduce segments and provide background tone, while exquisitely chosen sound effects lend a realism the listener will not believe came from a studio. Lewis’s Chronicles have been fresh and compelling since he wrote them 50 years ago; this production achieves an equal standard for their treatment in audio.
