Mr Pullman Please Write Book 4!

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 30-01-08

The final part in the Dark Materials Trilogy and what a finale!

I thought the start of this story was a bit slower than the first two but as the story unfolded all the action and adventure was there and just as good as the previous books.

I didn't want this final instalment to end, yet i couldn't stop listening to it. My emotions were given a battering and i felt shattered when it finished, it was as if i had been there with Lyra and company all along.

I can't recommend this book highly enough but be prepared to become totally immersed in Lyra's world and to feel like a wreck when your adventure ends, in fact you won't want it to end.

Fantastic!!! But please can we have one more book 8-)

Not a Let Down!

This is the second book in Philip Pullmans 'His Dark Materials' trilogy. I was worried that this couldn't in any way compare with the first book 'Northern Lights' which i throughly enjoyed. How wrong was i, this had me enthralled even more so!
Once again Pullman and the rest of the cast manage to draw you into the adventure so that you could actually be a daemon yourself!
The story spans a new world with new & old friends and enemies for Lyra, you are taken on a rollercoaster of an adventure which manages to shake your emotions on all levels.
The only downfall i can see is that i only have the last book now left to listen to, once i've listened to that i'll miss Lyra and her friends as it's a priviledge to be allowed on such an adventure.

This is fantastic! Pullman is excellent as the narrator and the characters bring the whole story to life. You feel as if you are on the sidelines watching as the story unfolds.

This is definately one to listen to and lose yourself in. Great for adults and older children.
