    " This is an overall great collection of the Narnia stories, generally read well by the individual narrators. I do have problems with the shrill, harsh voicing of Reepicheep in "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" (Lynn Redgrave's voicing in "Prince Caspian" is fine), and with the entirety of Patrick Stewart's version of "The Last Battle," which is, in my opinion, overly dramatised to the point of caricature. Apart from these small complaints, I would caution anyone seeking to download the box set that the producers have made no attempt to properly label either the books or the individual chapters therein. You will download a set of .zip files that, when unpacked, open up merely as Tracks 1 to 118 or so. If you wish to put these in a music library on your device, such as Music (formerly iTunes), you'll have to go through the tracks one by one, sort them into the proper books, and then listen to the beginning of each track to get the chapter number or title. Unless you want the complete set of books, it might be better to buy them individually, depending on how the pricing works out. However, if you can put up with the small performance defects and the greater organisational issues, everything else about the set is outstanding. "
