    "all three"

    Brilliant taking the listener to several worlds meeting wonderful characters who feel like friends. Total escapism.... completely captivating.

    "My least favourite of the trilogy"
    Any additional comments?

    I had been completely entranced by the first 2 books in this trilogy and couldn't wait to catch up with the adventures of Lyra and Will. Firstly, I was surprised that Will's voice had broken, as he seemed a little young for this, but I guessed this was just because the actor's voice had broken. As the narration on this book (like the first 2) is superb, I could live with this, but it did give the impression that Will was much older that he should have been, and maybe this is what spoiled the end of the book for me.
    Now I won't give away the story by delving into it - if you have read the other 2, you will already know the style. Of course it was gripping, exciting, nerve-wracking, at times very dark, brilliant... but in the last quarter of the book, I began to enjoy it less. Is it just me, or did anyone else find the character developments uncomfortable listening? Just a little bit 'not quite right'? I can't say any more without giving away really earthshattering aspects of the plot, and I don't have any issue with how Will and Lyra's story ended - that sort of made sense - I just didn't like what happened before the end, and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

    "Rediscovered"

    I remember listening to this on tape when I was younger. I haven't listened to it in years, and I'm feeling like there were quite a few instances that went completely over my head when I was ten (I don't know if the term 'innuendo' is quite right for the point I'm trying to get across but it's the closest word I can think of at the mo'. Anyway, I still enjoyed this production very much. I loved His Dark Materials when I was younger and I have an even greater appreciation for it now that I understand what Phillip Pullman was actually writing about.

    "😀⛤⛤⛤"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book series. I have recommended it to friends and family already. Also the narrative and voice acting was good. The different voices for each of the characters made a nice change.

    "fabulous end to the trilogy"

    outstanding performance. The trilogy wrapped up with no loose ends and an awful lot to think about and i am on my third reading/ listen. No sentimentality either.

    "Very enjoyable story"

    I didn't really want it to end and maybe that is why I was a little disappointed with how it all wrapped up.

    One thing is for sure it definitely keeps the story going at a great rate. The story of Mary on the strange people was my favourite part and her interactions with the creatures who inhabit it.

    All in all it is a great tale and it doesn't try to seal it nice and. Early in some Hollywood ending either.

    Performances where brilliant as they have been for each audiobook.

    Can't fault it.

    "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.

    "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.
