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

One of my favourite books ever!
I read the book, listened to the dramatised version and then the unabridged version here on Audible. This helped while away the commute very nicely thanks. Pullman?s narration is perfect and his creation in this trilogy is incredible. His invention of the Alethiometer is fascinating, the out-of-kilter world that Lyra lives in and the rest of the cast of characters and their daemons are superb. Once I have listened to these I don?t know what I am going to do as I will miss them so much!
