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.
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
Have now purchased the original book in audio to complete my collection instead.
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...
