Publisher's Summary

This is the first book in the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials, from Philip Pullman. Set in a parallel world very similar to our own, Northern Lights tells the compelling story of 12-year-old Lyra's quest to rescue her friend and find her father, aided by her daemon, an armoured bear, and a witch-queen.

Simply amazing and addictive.

The story itself will make you cling towards it until it's end. The narrative (audio book) makes it even more interesting.

Great listen, great cast

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman is a great listen with a great cast and one the best stories ever written. I absolutely loved it. I wish it was possible for more stories to be read this way, it just makes the story so much better. His Dark Materials is probably one of the greatest stories out there that is available to young readers, and audible has provided a fun way to listen to the story at bedtime.

One for your Collection!!

This is fantastic! Pullman is excellent as the narrator and the characters bring the whole story to life. You feel as if you are on the sidelines watching as the story unfolds.

This is definately one to listen to and lose yourself in. Great for adults and older children.

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT BRILLIANT

This is a fantastic dramatization of the book. I heard this on tape and wanted to buy the cds from audible, they didn't have it at that time so I bought the other version - a big mistake! This version is superior in every way. The author Philip Pullman is a brilliant narrator and the characters are great too especially Lyra. I cannot recommend this highly enough. For adult and older children, you will not want it to end! Can we have the next 2 cds soon!! I can,t wait.

Excellent voice acting

This is a fantastic quality audiobook with an excellent voice cast. It's such a great series! The audio quality is fantastic. I ended up getting the other two books in the trilogy. Definitely would recommend to anyone who likes fantasy and adventure.

Better than I remember

Perfect narration, but i suppose you can expect that from the author. A wonderful story which I read as a child and I have got so much more out of it the second time around. A wonderful fiction series for young and old.
