    "Excellent"

    Having watched and enjoyed the movie 'The Golden Compass' I heard many friends who had read the original books and expressed how much better they were than the film. I didn't realise how right they were! Fantastically written and brilliantly read by Mr Pullman himself this audiobook was truly a joy. The actors were all of the highest standard and the whole thing left me enraptured from start to finish. Top notch.

    "Amber Spyglass"

    If you enjoyed Northern Lights then you will enjoy this one just as much. A compelling listen. Great characters. Very well narrated. Excellent!

    "Profound, beautifully voiced and magical"

    I loved the His Dark Materials series when I read them (and re-read them) in print format, but was a little wary of listening to them. When I needed something I could cope with whilst ill, however, I figured it was a good option.



    After I'd downloaded it and started to listen, I was invaded by my 2-year-old, and we both ended up curled up, listening intently, for a good hour before he trundled off to his grandparents. It's so very rare to find a narrator who really reads it as intended, and having Philip Pullman himself reading (and he really is an excellent reader) was a huge treat. Better than that, the cast is an exceptional collection of vocal talents who made it easy to picture the characters.



    It was so much less disappointing than trying to watch The Golden Compass...



    I'd recommend it to anyone without any reserve at all. Fantastic, gripping story and a beautifully made audiobook.

    "Disappointing"

    I have listened to all three parts of this trilogy. I loved part one but each successive part has not been anywhere near as good. The last part was very slow and diappointing.

    "Poor ending to a good series"

    I had to force myself to finish listening to this book. I had really enjoyed the first book, and the second was ok but this was a real let down. It just seemed to drag on and on, as well as losing it's way at several points and it just didn't work for me. Shame as the series had started out with so much promise. The reading was very well performed but this just couldn't rescue it from sinking.

    "Big disappointment after intriguing parts 1 & 2"

    Found this final part a frustrating disappointment from around halfway but after investing so much time in parts 1 and 2, it wasn't really possible just to stop listening.

    "Excellent, simply excellent."

    A great story, a great culmination and a fine end to an excellent trilogy. Brilliantly narrated by the author, and augmented by the cast of voices, the whole trilogy came alive. Happy hours spent. I particular enjoyed the evisceration of religion, but that's just the devil in me.
