This is the first book in the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials, from Philip Pullman.

Narration too fast, thankful for "adjust speed"

While I enjoyed the story and it being divided into 3 parts (thematically) made for easy listening, the first thing I did was reduce the speed of the narration, it was almost unbearably fast and rushed and for the first 5 minutes I honestly considered returning the audiobook.

It also took me a while to get used to the dialogue being spoken by voice actors, especially Lyra's voice was intensely annoying at times, e.g. when she was upset. The shrill screaming voice needed getting used to.

I honestly would have probably enjoyed the performance more if it had been just read by Pullman, his voice is very nice to listen to.

The story isn't too complex but still leaves some mysteries to unravel which makes it an excellent children's book but still remains entertaining for adults.

Will definitely listen to parts 2 and 3 as well.

superbly written and voiced

I loved these books when I was young, and this fullcast production, narrated by the author Philip Pullman himself, does not disappoint!
