In a dazzling dramatization of heraldry and heroes, another version of C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia comes to life. With sound effects that instantly transport one and a diverse cast taking each of the parts, Narnia unfolds and draws listeners in. The BBC cast includes such audiobook luminaries as Martin Jarvis, Fiona Shaw, Garard Green and Stephen Thorne. For seasoned audiophiles it's pure delight to recognize the voice of an actor within a full-cast production. It's a bit like recognizing an old friend. For those new to listening, especially a family, any one of this Narnia series is a perfect place to start. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe or Prince Caspian may be the best known, but each offers charm and adventure. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
