Book Review: The Horse and His Boy (Audio CD)

The Horse and His BoyThe Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Own.  Audio CD

We listened to this book on the very long drive home.

Jason and I had listened to it a number of years ago on a similarly long drive.  I didn't remember liking it nearly as much as I liked it this time. 

I enjoyed considering Aslan's hand and presence in Shasta's life ... even when he seemed or felt forsaken. I liked hearing how one's story if for yourself and not shared with others.  I loved how utterly surprised the children were when Aslan was made known to them. 

The reader on the audio edition we own (and it's in the van, so I can't find out who he was) was very, very good.  My favorite reader

Fitting it into the context of the series aided my enjoyment of the story.  I'm looking forward to more in the series.
