Absolute dogturd of an ending

So much left unfinished. So many loose threads. Maybe the author should have left all the other writers work out and put in some more of his own. Worst dogturd ending of any book series yet.

Enjoyable audiobook

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook, the narrative by Philip Pullman was enjoyable and the cast makes a huge difference, the ending of the trilogy was sad really, I am sure that you will enjoy this book, it is long but well worth every minute.

Very happy ind ed

Really good narration and performance. The story for me though didn't flow as easy as the other two. It is the culmination of so many characters and stories coming together so it feels sometimes that it doesn't breathe. really nice and entertaining though overall

Awesome in The Truest Sense of the World

I would like to thank Penguin very much for producing such an amazing rendition of all the three books of his dark Materials trilogy. Philip Pullman reads it beautifully. I first read the trilogy years ago and loved it but when I listened to this recording it brought the books to life. The story is so psychedelic and surreal. No words can truly describe how absolutely outstanding this trilogy is.
However, I am deeply disappointed that the actors who played their parts beautifully were not credited. I would’ve loved to have known who played each part. PLEASE rectify this.
Listen to this recording. You will NOT be disappointed.

Loved it.

The whole cast was amazing. I truly loved this series and got well caught up in the magic of these books. I can see why "the church" was upset about it, but it wouldn't be the first time nor will it be the last that a religion will be used in a book, or be seen as potentially evil in a book. I wouldn't take that part too seriously in my day to day life. I loved how the series was wound up too. Too many series end almost straight after the big battle leaving alot of questions to mind but this answered all the pressing ones. I thoroughly enjoyed this Audio book series.

Good book

Great series, enjoyed all three. Spoilers, would have liked a bit more detail for what happened to some of the minor characters, other than that a great listen. Very well performed.
