Philip Pullman's books tackle important, controversial and difficult subjects with style, wisdom and authority. The His Dark Materials trilogy is often heralded as a modern masterpiece and it's featured on this unabridged audio collection across three CDs. There are also four CDs featuring the unabridged books from the Sally Lockhart Quartet.
The monumental His Dark Materials books introduce Lyra, an orphan who lives in a parallel universe where science, theology and magic are entwined. As she embarks on a search for a sinister plot that involves stolen children, she soon finds herself on a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust... Now is the perfect time to listen to these thought-provoking and captivating stories as the BBC adaptation of His Dark Materials starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Clarke Peters hits our TV screens.
The Sally Lockhart Quartet opens with The Ruby in the Smoke, a book that finds Sally receiving an anonymous letter shortly after the death of her father at sea; the dire warning it contains makes a man die of fear at her feet... Sally decides to find out the truth about her father's death and finds herself plunged into a terrifying mystery in the heart of Victorian London - and it all seems to revolve around a deadly blood-soaked jewel.
The His Dark Materials audiobooks are read by Philip Pullman and a full cast, while the Sally Lockhart Quartet is read by Anton Lesser.

Great story telling, fantastic value. What a talent Phillip Pullman is - a brilliant writer AND narrator!
The Sally Lockhart audiobooks are amazing!
The Ultimate Philip Pullman -
70+ hours of excellent story telling especially the Anton Lesser readings. Seven unabridged books for £11. Such good value. I hope you get some more in. Great for car journeys. Thank you
What a bargain -
Read by the author and actors. A neat little box of MP3 CDs. Unabridged. A great price and easy listening, a bit scary in parts for a young audience, perhaps.
Excellent recording! -
I don't usually review products but this CD set is so good, I had to. It's great value for the running time (although it didn't play on our ancient car stereo so I put it onto our iPod) and it's read by Philip Pullman himself. It's extremely well read by him and other artists and incredibly enjoyable for a long journey with a 7-year-old and both parents!
