I think it's a lovely thing. If I were worried about fire, I'd have it inspected for safety to reduce the risk, rehearse a fire drill, and maybe make a rule that Wardrobe doors must stay open while playing in Narnia (after all, Lucy left the door open a crack when she went through). If illicit happenings become a risk, then perhaps it's time to turn Narnia back into a closet.
Through the Wardrobe: Real-Life Narnia

I will add my thumbs up for Jim Dale and Davina Porter. I can't remember who narrated Diane Setterfield's "The Thirteenth Tale," but it's still lodged in my memory after five years, as is "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell." I must add Barbara Rosenblat to the list--her narrations of the Bridget Jones books make them even more hilarious, and she did another Helen Fielding as well. I have to confess that I have listened to all of the Princess Diaries audio books because Clea Lewis (she takes over at book 3--until then it's Anne Hathaway) is so funny and spot-on as a narrator. The books are definitely not as silly as the movies, either, and would be something I'd recommend for an adolescent girl.
