Audiobook:: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Magician's Nephew by CS Lewis

Title: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Magician's Nephew
Author: CS Lewis
Narrator: Kenneth Branagh


Digory let out a scream. "What's happened to Polly?"
"Congratulate me, my dear boy," said Uncle Andrew, rubbing his hands. "My experiment has succeeded. The little girl's gone – vanished – right out of this world."
When Digory and Polly discover Uncle Andrew's secret workshop, they are tricked into touching the magic rings which transport them to the Other Place. But even Uncle Andrew doesn't realise the wonders that await them – for here is the gateway to the Land of Narnia and the beginning of many wonderful adventures there…

Review:
Confession time...I've never actually read The Chronicles of Narnia. I've seen the filmsbut I've not read the books. For shame, I know. It was time for me to actually read the stories. I decided I'd do it via audiobook. What a fantastic idea! The audiobook's are actually quite short {this one was about 4 hrs} and narrator Kenneth Branagh is a great. He kept me interested and really added another depth to the story. 

If you've ever wondered what a magical wardrobe was ever doing in that big house in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe you'll find out here! I'm really in awe at the creativity of this adventure story. Digory and Polly kept coming and going from so many different worlds and I couldn't wait to finally meet Aslan. I'm so excited for this series! 

I'm listening to them in chronological order, not publication order. I like things on a timeline and so that's why I started with The Magician's Nephew.
