For those older readers of Narnia, here are some of my own thoughts on which order to read the Chronicles. For those new to Narnia, you may be unaware that there are two orders of reading the series; one, chronologically by publication order, and the other by Narnia's internal chronological progression. The first is is numbered as thus: THE LION, THE WITCH, & THE WARDOBE, PRINCE CASPIAN, VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER, THE SILVER CHAIR, THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW, and THE LAST BATTLE. With this omnibus edition of Narnia, one of fantasy's most popular series has, of course, been ordered as Narnia is now published, with MN as the opening book and LAST BATTLE as the ending book.

With two publication orders of Narnia, many people question which to read. For several reasons, I recommend the first publication order to be read first, the internal chronology second..

If one reads the history of Narnia as strictly that, one is much more likely to lose the truths Lewis was trying to impart. When one reads The Lion, if they had not read Magician's Nephew, they will be unaware of where the Lamp-Post came. Lion is essential a story about Edmond coming into the salvation of God. It creates a real sense of wonder, a wonder that would be diluted with knowledge of its creation. It's a mystery, an account. You become less concerned with the book in context of the whole series, and more concerned with the book in context of the book. Some things you might miss or not pay much attention to because you have already taken into account in context of the story's chronology, and not examined what Lewis was trying to say through this. Also, you get to follow the characters throughout the books, which is lost in the new order.

I'm not too old for Narnia! At 40, I now know why CS Lewis was so revered as a "children's story writer". The Radio Theatre CD set will give hours and hours of wonderful driving trip adventures. This is also the best price I've found yet. Buying more sets for gifts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Passing these tales on to the next generation Dec 23 2011
By rvss

I read the Narnia books as a girl and loved them. I also enjoyed the movies as an adult. I now have two boys aged 6 and 7 years, and though we have not yet started to read the Narnia stories to them, we regularly listen to them on CD. The boys love the stories, and have taken to listening to them when they get home from school, to wind down from the day, as they draw, colour or play. Although some of the stories are a bit too rich in detail for my boys to understand, they generally love the fact that the different characters are actually "acted" by different voices that match the characters' age and gender. We have not gotten through all the CDs yet, but of course, "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", is already the favourite.

This is an incredible set for the money - a fully-produced radio drama of all seven Narnia books. The music, sound effects and voices are perfect!...well, perhaps the voice of Aslan is a tad overdone (although my kids didn't think so). I will say this, his voice has a gravelly, growly quality that is often appropriate. But that's a small complaint...these are great family listening, especially for long car rides! Highly recommended. If your kids like these books, they will enjoy these radio dramas!

It is a very well done presentation of these brilliant and engaging stories by C. S. Lewis. We love to listen to them as a family on long trips in the van. Makes a long trip more enjoyable and beneficial. Stories communicate wonderful truths in a clear and engaging way. Only criticism I would have is that the voice of Aslan is a little overdone/corny. Still worth the investment.
