lots to think about! great to have read the whole trilogy during lockdown. I am in awe at Margaret Atwood's vision, too much of this resinates in 2020

perfect listening for a pandemic!

didnt realise how incredibly insightful Atwood is until reading this mid covid19 pandemic. Ms Atwood, this incredible future focused story of humanity cannot be described as a.dystopia as we are all witnessing many of the same things you describe, its reality with a twist!

didnt inspire

I learnt so much, was completely entertained and I love and adore Mary Karr's own narration, it is like being coached 1 to 1

great fun, beautifully recounted

what an absolute delight. it is a faberge egg of a novel, intricate, rare, precious. The author has given every small detail a part to play in the overall story, but you cant see how it all fits together until the very end. A great read: entertaining, touching and insightful.

took me about a year to get into this!

hard to get into and the narration annoying but it may not be the narrator so much as the style of the prose.

entertaining and curious.

I thought this wasnt going to be as good as the others. But I was wrong! fantastic, fast moving, story with a few twists and turns and plenty of menace. One of the most brilliant audiobook performances I have ever heard - Anton Lesser is a genius.

An amazing book and enthralling listen, well told

Do not expect do do very much for sixteen hours after you hear the words, 'Chapter 1...'

Malcolm, Lyra, Alice, Pantalymon and a cast of well drawn sympathetic characters, good, bad and dastardly are all brought to life in Michael Sheen's masterful reading.

Phillip Pullman is a expert story teller and this is an extraordinary tale.

Save it as a treat, don't squander it when you cant give it your undivided attention!

amazing, loved it
