A modern classic

Thank you Philip Pullman for transporting me back to the land of Lyra and Will. Brilliant story acted out perfectly. His Dark Materials is essential reading for every adult and child on this planet.

Great book and series as a whole

I'm not sure exactly what to say about this. I loved it as much as I loved the other books. I can see why some people who are religious might not some of the things mentioned within this book. I couldn't really see the book ending any other way. Despite that this book still had lots of surprises in store and I don't think I have been sucked into a series as a whole as easily and deeply or as quickly as I was with His Dark Materials and the full cast audio definitely made it extremely easy to get lost in this book as well as the series as a whole.

Fantastic, like being at the theatre!

Fabulous full cast, breathed so much life into the characters. Having Phillip Pullman narrate meant that each aspect of each world was portrayed faithfully. Brilliantly complex and profound story, beautifully written and performed.

Too Many Endings

Wonderful, elaborate, rich and far far too long. The ending made up for it though.

A triumph

I first read this as a kid over a decade ago. Listening again as an adult I can say it is even more spectacular.

A wonderful story, a great production

Pullmans narration is superb and the voice acting of the cast match the characters well. I am sad to finish the trilogy. I hope that the books of dust trilogy get the same treatment!

Its great to hear the story narrated by the fantastic author, Philip Pullman, and the cast are superb too! This recording does great justice to the incredible story of His Dark Materials! I binge-listened to all three in less than a week - would highly recommend!

Brilliant. what more can I say

I read the books a few years ago and needed something to listen to whilst I worked so it seemed like a no brainer to order this and it's marvelous.
it's read by Phillip Pullman who's voice is soothing and melodic whilst the characters are performed by numerous people but it's just wonderful. all the dark materials are. :D

Outstanding - not only for children

The whole trilogy is very well written and narrated. Characters and storyline is complex and gripping. Definitely not just for children. Highly recommended :-)
