  • "Extremely well read"

    Story

    I enjoyed the film version of this book and tried reading it a few years back but just couldn't get into it fully. I had a long car journey and decided to give the audio book a chance. I must say I was extremely pleased. Pullman and the cast really bring the story alive. It is one of the best read audio books I have ever listened to (and I've listened to a fair number). Every single voice was spot on. I highly recommend (but beware you will HAVE to get the next two books in the trilogy because there is no way you are going to be able to stop listening to this story).

    This is the first book in the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials, from Philip Pullman. Set in a parallel world very similar to our own, Northern Lights tells the compelling story of 12-year-old Lyra's quest to rescue her friend and find her father, aided by her daemon, an armoured bear, and a witch-queen.

    Story

    The cast did an excellent job reading this story. Every voice was spot on. However, I didn't like this book nearly as well as The Northern Lights. There were aspects of it I really enjoyed but as a whole I found it less engaging and not nearly as satisfying. I think Pullman got a little too wrapped up in pushing his anti-religion view at the expense of the story.

    Story

    I enjoyed the audio version of Northern Lights a great deal. The cast did just as good a job on this story, however, I didn't find the story nearly as engaging. I would still give it 5 stars except there wasn't even a semblance of an ending- clearly it was just the first half of the next story.

    The thrilling second book in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, read by the author and a full cast. In this stunning sequel to Northern Lights, the intrepid Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon, Pantalaimon, find themselves in a shimmering, haunted other world - Cittagazze where soul-eating Spectres stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. Here she meets twelve-year-old Will Parry, a fugitive from a third universe.

    For anyone who loves sailing and adventure, Arthur Ransome's classic Swallows and Amazons series stands alone. Originally published over a half-century ago, the twelve books are still eagerly read by children and adults alike - by all those captivated by the world of adventure and imagination. Such longevity is not only due to Ransome's unparalleled gift of storytelling, but also his championing of qualities such as independence and initiative; virtues that appeal to every generation, whether young or old.
