    "Incredible Production"

    Beautiful, rich and breathes new life and understanding into this classic text. The story itself is amazing enough, but when the meanings really start to leak out in successive experiences it's truly, astounding. It's a template for hope, striving, deep thought, overcoming hatred and prejudice, and backward thinking and the importance of
    learning and education. At the end of 2016 we need all these things more than ever.

    Story
    "Fantastic audio theatre"

    Put away your prejudices about 'fantasy' and kids - or 'young adults' - literature. This is imaginative literature for any age - fantastic in the sense of marvellous - probably the best listen for me so far. The author narrates his own work like a loving uncle, who sympathises with the troubles of the world he discovers and the reader's own anguished listening. Dark, yes, but profoundly inspiring, wise and poetic. The performance is a wonderfully extended piece of audio theatre with a full cast of characters all brilliantly realised. I started this book wanting to learn what so gripped my grandchildren, and was equally gripped and amazed myself.

    "What a drop in quality"

    Loved part one, two was a bit rubbish, but hated this one with a passion. Too many characters, too much heavy handed messaging and too little story. The character of Lyra was turned into a drip. Not impressed.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
