Publisher's Summary

Captivating, fast-paced and brought to life in glorious detail, the world contained within this audiobook is one that, despite its fantastical nature, feels almost too real to be a work of fiction.
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. This prize-winning tale is narrated with vigour and dynamism by the author and a full cast. Written and read by Philip Pullman.

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.

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.
