This is the first book in the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials, from Philip Pullman.

Gripping story but mediocre dramatisation
I love this series and Pullman is a good narrator but I found the dramatisation jarring and detrimental to the experience. I much prefer a narrator who can effectively play all the parts.
