Another Excting Story From Pullman

Gesamt
5 out of 5 stars

Rezensiert am: 25.09.2007

After being completly blown away (in a good sense) by the 'His Dark Materials' Series I was ready for anything that Pullmann had to offer. I started this book becasue I wanted another one of his trilogies, since you have loads of time to listen and enjoy them and I was not disappointed!

This book and the following two in the Sally Lockhart series are no where near as 'biblical' in scope, as were 'the Golden Compass' , etc. However, they have proven to be every bit engaging and the stories are every bit as touching.

The reader is truely gifted (nothing ruins a good story more than having it read poorly) so you are bound to have hours of fun with this one.

Wildly Creative and Well Read

Having just read through the Abhorsen series, I was eager to get more form Garth Nix. I was really surprised to find that: 1) the story is widely different in tone and topic 2) it is just as uniquely creative as the Abhosen.

I really enjoied this book and was pleased to find that despite the absence of Tim Curry who made such a great impression with Abhorsen, the reader of these novels is just as engaging.

I'm not finished with this sereis 'the Keys to the Kingdom' yet but am greatly anticipating each book!

Garth Nix offers a really unique fantasy vision in this series, one that I had a hard time finishing, simply because I didn't want it to end. A bit grim at times and never afraid to explore the macabre, this fantasy borders on the horrific at times. Tim Curry does a lovely job of bringing the characters to life.
all-in-all, a really enteratining listen!

Starts a bit slowly compared to the first and third books of the series, but soon gets interesting if you persavier.

it is unfortunate that books 7 & 8 seem to have been produced by two compltly different companies. After listening to the fabulous unabridged books 1 - 6 it was a disappointment to find that the following two books were not only abridged but that they were read by another actor. Mark Rolston is not a poor reader, let me make that clear, but he doesn't know how to pronounce and of the names, titles, etc...and worse still the editting is so choppy you've no warning between point of view and chapter chifts. I bought them because I wanted to work my way through the series again. I'm glad that the books after these two are back to the more appealing production.
