His Dark Materials...made with dodgy materials! (Please note: this is a review of the BBC 4 radio play audio CD. Not the unabridged version read by Phillip Pullman.) I'm a massive, massive fan of Philip Pullman's trilogy 'His Dark Materials'. I've read them countless times and put them ... Read review

Shame it was recorded with such rubbish materials! Review with images

AdvantagesWell, you could always use the CDs as drinks coasters

DisadvantagesWhere do I begin?...

"...round my friends house, when his Dad insisted on having it for 'dinnertime' accompaniment...oh the joys). This was the last straw and irritated me so much, I switched it off. Maybe I was in mourning, that such a great book series, didn't have it's merits rewarded by being read by someone as wonderful as Stephen Fry, I don't know. But in either case, this series felt so badly executed as an audio version. It just didn't work for me. I want to listen ..." Read review

Listening to Lyra

AdvantagesWell-dramatised, satisfying, good for a car trip

DisadvantagesThey'll never be as moving as the book, Will is a tad dreadful

"HIS DARK MATERIALS by Philip Pullman Dramatised by Lavinia Murray Note the word dramatised. This is NOT the BBC Cover to Cover version, read unabridged by Philip Pullman with a cast to speak the dialogue, but a heavily edited and dramatised version, which has been broadcast on BBC radio. I was originally going to save for the lengthy and expensive Cover to Cover version, but I really wanted something to listen to in the car on the way to work ..." Read review

His Dark Materials

AdvantagesA great read

DisadvantagesMay not appeal to some

"This series is the most captivating i have ever come across. It features many imaginative characters, plots and makes you think about those mysterious questions. Great for older audiences though small children may not understand some of it. It has been released in all possible forms, film, audio and the original books and this range allows anybody to experience the magic of philip pullmans imagination. His Dark Materials is truly a good listen ..." Read review

Fantastic Reading

AdvantagesEngrossing

DisadvantagesFirst couple of chapters in book 1 a bit slow due to the detail of the characters.

"I found the first few chapters in book 1 very detailed and a bit slow. Other than that ,the books were excellent reading and the characters lovable, diverse, deep and interesting. The story line was gripping, taking the reader through the trials and tribulations of two teenagers thrown into a fantastical world full of dangers, love, joy fear and loss. I would reccomend this trilogy for adults and teens alike. These books are the sort that you can't ..." Read review
