Long awaited and gripping

This listen is new and comfortably familiar at the same time. If you liked His Dark Materials and La Belle Sauvage, I'm sure you'll love this. Just don't try to listen when falling asleep. While it might be possible to listen as a standalone book, a great deal would be missed as there is a wealth of depth added by the preceding storytelling. My only criticism is that because Philip Pullman reads His Dark Materials himself and Michael Sheen reads this, there are some jarring differences in pronunciation that sometimes detract from the experience.
