I loved the book. The story was excellent. I loved Philip Pullman narrating. Some of the other actors/voices were a bit off-putting, but did not go so far to ruin the book for me. I still would recommend this audio book.
Narration with different people is very good!
Good start to the trilogy
Great book and the narration is the best I’ve heard so far. The actors add a lot to the experience. Philip Pullman is an excellent author reads very well.
one of my favorite series
I really enjoyed the book and narration.
The sheer awesomeness of this book can be summed up with one word: panzerbeorn.
Didn’t care for the book
Narration was great! Captured the emotion of each moment exceptionally!
Was listening to this during my cross country drive in my car. Yes, I don't have a high quality sound system in the car, but the difference is the base heavy voice of the narrator, and the lines read by the characters were a bit too far apart. The narrator's voice sounded low, especially with the highway noise, but the characters' sounded fine - if I increased the volume, the narrator sound good, but the characters were a bit too loud.
I enjoyed the story very much, and the narration was lively and catching. Each character has his own narrator/voice, that fits well to the personality.
The story itself feels very much like a modern fairytale with witches, talking bears, and magic objects. I feel that magic was involved, but at the same time, I cannot really recall anybody really using magic in that sense.
I had a smile on my face from start to end, and I cannot wait what the second book has to offer...
Magnificent book, wonderful narration.
Extraordinary, captivating story!
The diverse narrators for different characters are a nice idea, they make the listening very lifelike, however if you cross-referencing with a printed copy, some of the "unimportant" text like ("Lyra said" ...) is left out, so don't get confused :)
Outstanding narration and a story that sucks you in like only a few modern classics have in the last twenty years. Thoroughly recommend.
I love this book, at the start of the beginning , it throws you in the midst of the action! I am now listening to the second book!
Brilliant, and absolutely the best narration of any book I’ve heard
Best audio book I have ever listened too. The full cast and narrator are compelling and urge you to continue on and on with the material. Amazing!
Excellent story and a wonderful cast reading!! Truly a theatrical production!!
The whole series is incredible, really. The world is believable from the very start, and Lyra is such a well-developed character. Pullman narrating is a treat, and each voice actor does a great job.
I have read this series many years ago but listening to it brings the characters to life. It is such a wonderful story.
Fantastic storytelling and great narration. I've been recommending audiobooks since listening to this one.
