"Lyra's Oxford is essential listening for His Dark Materials fans, but be warned, it will only leave you wanting more." (AudioFile)
"An oddity and a rarity....a crystalline story." (Booklist)
It was nice to finally see Lyra after the events of the trilogy. She's acts and sounds slightly more mature and feels like a real extension. Too bad this is only 48 mins. Well I guess we can just look forward to the true sequel Pullman is working on...
Quite short, but is nice to hear from Lyra after the trilogy! But I am still waiting for the book of Dust, come on its 2015 already
i'm a man without conviction
Love the original series but seriously... ten dollars for a 45 minute book? Where was the happy ending?
This was an interesting short story taking place after the main His Dark Materials trilogy. Lyra goes off on a mini adventure when a witch's dæmon comes to Oxford. Short. Fun. But not terribly compelling.
I loved the His dark materials trilogy. I cry at the end every time, so it was nice to hear a new story from the same universe. I only wish that Mr. Pullman would do more stories in this universe.
