Another fantastic book in this Universe created by Sir Pullman. A thrilling storyline, made all the more tangible by the links to Lyra's life and future. Narration was excellent though I had to google what a hyena's laugh sounds like :)
Really Captivating read! The Narration was also fantastic.
An engaging story read by a trained actor.
Pullman’s skepticism and disdain for theocracy is back with a veangance. His characters are fully realized and fleshed out as usual, but some are left in the dust after so much interesting development. The first half is the better part of this book, with a final act that is wrapped up much too abruptly. There is enjoyment to be had, and I’m excited for the rest of the series.
Michael Sheen is a superb narrator, and perfectly delivers what would sometimes be silly dialogue. He brought me right into the world with him. I’m hoping he’s performing for the other books as well.
Whether you’re new to Pullman’s work or an old fan, this book deserves your time.
Michael Sheen's narration is as good as Pillip Pullman's own. The book is good too, albeit not without a couple of silly parts, much like The Amber Spyglass. Still, very enjoyable - i cannot wait for the second book in the trilogy.
I loved this book! What an adventure!! Michael Sheen is probably one of the best narrator I have ever heard. He is right up there with Stephen Fry. Even if you haven't read His Dark Materials, this book would still be awesome. I can't wait for the next instalment!
