I really loved this, so atmospheric and the narrator was great, he really captured the panic of the main character. I really loved to the language in this, so descriptive. You could nearly see everything happening in front of you as you listened. I would definitely recommend this, a great homage to the classic ghost story.
This is one of the most entertaining audiobooks I have ever listened to. I say one of the most because the two sequels in this trilogy The Subtle Knife (Unabridged) and The Amber Spyglass (Unabridged) are the other most entertaining audiobooks. Northern Lights is a fantastic tale which has undoubtedly been perfected by having the story narrated by the author and a full cast to play the characters. Philip Pullman has a soothing voice which makes listening to him speak a pleasure. The cast are also excellent at bringing this recording to life which makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the action which I?m afraid you will never experience while reading the book. This recording is definitely five stars and this is a story that I will return again and again and I will never get bored of listening to it. If you want to experience a magical audiobook then you must definitely listen to this one.
Very funny, I really like this comedian. I have seen her on several panel shows over the last year or so and have been impressed by her so was keen to download this once I saw it. I was not disappointed; she has a great support cast also. The only thing I found on the negative side is that as I listened to the whole series in one go I found the formula became very apparent and slightly annoying by the last one. However the laughter made up for that.
