    Inhaltsangabe

    "But the thing is," said Horley, "they didn’t know each other at all. Never heard of each other. It wasn’t about the makers. Only about the works."

    On a dark winter's night in 1970, Horley and Grinstead huddle for warmth in the Senior Common Room of a college in Oxford. Conversation turns to the two impressive works of art that Horley has recently added to his collection. What the two men don't know is that these pieces are connected in mysterious and improbable ways; and they are about to be caught in the cross-fire of a story which has travelled time and worlds.

    Philip Pullman is one of the most well-loved and admired British authors of the last few decades. He has written numerous novels for both adults and children, most notably the award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy. The Collectors, written exclusively for Audible, serves as a great introduction to this series, while revealing a little something extra to fans of Lyra and her world.

    The Collectors is narrated by Bill Nighy, the Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning actor whose work on stage, screen, and radio has included Love Actually, the Pirates of the Caribbean series and a multitude of TV, stage, and radio appearances.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Pullman's brief story is a little marvel, and so is Nighy's reading. His narration is so natural, complete with signature Nighy stutters, and his voice so rich and resonant that listeners are immediately ensnared." (AudioFile)

    wonderful

    simply wonderful, both the story and the way bill nighy brings it across. it is pretty short, but still a pleasure to be drawn back into the dark materials universe

    nice little story

    It is an enjoyable bit of a story for those that have read about Lyra's world and just want another short look. Seen by itself I do not think it would be interesting.

    Kurz und fesselnd

    Diese Geschichte beginnt sehr schlecht. Der Kontext scheint völlig undramatisch. Ganz langsam und sanft kommt die Wendung daher. Und ganz unvermittelt finden wir uns in geheimnisvollen, magisch anmutenden Verwicklungen.
    Die Arbeit des Sprechers hat mir ausgesprochen gut gefallen. Seine Stimme finde ich angenehmer, seine Lesung unprätentiös und differenziert.

    The Collectors (His Dark Materials, #0.6)

    The Collectors (His Dark Materials, #0.6)

    According to Pullman, he originally wanted to write a classic ghost story, and it was Audible's idea to have the story connected to His Dark Materials. The combination worked out quite well. "I conceived the idea of these two art collectors and their coming briefly into contact with one of the characters I always liked writing about, namely Mrs. Coulter," Pullman says. "And no one can meet Mrs. Coulter without being damaged."

    quote from another novel critic:
    “The Collectors was designed to function as a standalone, something that could be enjoyed by readers unfamiliar with His Dark Materials, but to me it seems designed more to tantalise.“
    another novel critic wrote:
    “So while yes, this is a ghost story, true ghost stories always, deep down, highlight something more, something human, and here, it's the power of love.“

    I enjoyed it and it resembled me after E A Poe.
    But there are better short-stories.

    Well rounded short story

    Somewhere between Edgar Allen Poe and Junji Ito in Pullman's Universe. Short and sweet.

    A little Gem from the His Dark Materials world

    With a fictional world so detailed, it would be a shame not to write some short stories based on it! Gripping story, great reading. Can recommend.

    Unnötig...

    Tatsächlich blieben mehr Fragen offen, als dass es eine schöne Ergänzung zur Serie wäre. Ehrlich gesagt einfach enttäuschend und überflüssig.

    Good Ghost Story

    Very enjoyable Ghost Story set in an English college reminding me of the works of M. R. James.
