Chronicles Of Narnia Unabridged Book And CDs Box Set Review
We have been listening to an awesome Chronicles Of Narnia Unabridged Book And Audio box set by C.S. Lewis that we purchased online from Seagull Book on May 30th for 80% off the listed price of $99.99!! That is just $19.99!! Unfortunately they don't have it at their online store any more and so I went searching for a comparable price for you but only found 33% off at Christianbook.com. Maybe you will have better luck at searching. At least you can listen to a sampling of the audio HERE.
This magnificent set is well worth even the $66.99, in my opinion. When it arrived at our home and we took it out of the shipping container we were awe struck at how nice a set this was. The combined book is beautifully illustrated and unabridged. At the first chance we got of a long van ride we put in the first CD and our kids fell silent listening. They have enjoyed listening so much that they sometimes forget that they are CDs and have begged us to put in the "video". I believe that they must have wonderful imaginations to have that kind of imagery in their heads, but C.S. Lewis is also a masterful author indeed for he has painted the pictures so very well.
C. S. Lewis's masterpiece, The Chronicles of Narnia, continues to captivate readers more than 50 years after publication. The 7 books include journeys to the end of the world, fantastic creatures and epic battles between good and evil. All 7 books are collected in one impressive paperback volume. Each chapter is graced with a black-and-white illustration by the original artist, Pauline Baynes.
Celebrity voices (Kenneth Branagh, Lynn Redgrave, Michael York, and Derek Jacobi) have come together to read these extraordinary works, and now, for the first time ever, this seven-in-one paperback and the complete unabridged recording of each book are available together in this heirloom quality box set from HarperCollins.
