i've listened to the his dark material books at least 4 time over. anyone who says these books arn't good hasn't read or listened to them.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I have read the original book and found this version lacking what I consider important parts of the original story.<br/>Compare it to the film version of a book, always missing some of the story and most of the time a little bit of a let down<br/>Have now purchased the original book in audio to complete my collection instead.<br/>This may be good for my grandchildren to listen to as dramatised tends to hold their interest longer
I listened to the first two books in the His Dark Materials series and was transfixed - listening to hour after hour of superb dramatisation and a tightly knit abridging. I downloded The Amber Spyglass expecting an at least as good experience and possibly better because the story was coming to a conclusion.
What. A. Disappointment. It was barely over 2 hours in length with bored people reading boring lines. Huge tracts of story were brushed over in sentences and it seemed like it was a rushe job.
Quick quick lets knock this out in 10 minutes because something more interesting is coming up next. I feel like the whole series has been tainted by the weakness of the treatment of the final book.
Money back please...
