I initially read the "Dark Materials" trilogy a few years ago. I wanted to refresh my memory, with the first book coming out in movie form late this year (2007). I just finished listening to all three books (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and finally, The Amber Spyglass). The story is so rich with wonder and the characters are so unique. The narration by Pullman and the full cast made the story really come to life. The armored bears, the witches, the mulefa - all so a part of the universal connections of all beings. The daemons continue to fascinate me, and make me wonder if I'll even realize my own. The worlds and there parallel relationships are intriguing. I only hope there could be a continuing story some day.
