The thrilling second book in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, read by the author and a full cast.
In this stunning sequel to Northern Lights, the intrepid Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon, Pantalaimon, find themselves in a shimmering, haunted other world – Cittagazze where soul-eating Spectres stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky.
Here she meets twelve-year-old Will Parry, a fugitive from a third universe. Will has found a small window between Cittagazze and Oxford that brings him into this strange new realm.
Will's father, an explorer, disappeared years ago, but recently some odd characters have started asking questions about him, and now, having accidentally killed one of them, Will is wanted by the police.
Armed with the subtle knife, a tool that cuts any material (including that which separates universes) and Lyra's alethiometer, the children set out to find John Parry, with adults of various stripes in desperate pursuit.
Excellent Audiobook - wrong title in iTunes
This is actually the Unabridged version read by the author, not the Dramatised version.
The Subtle Knife - Unabridged
Really grateful for earlier review as was searching for the version narrated by Phillip Pullman & cast after purchasing book one. Thought itunes didn't have it as it was mis-titled. Fantastic book and even better hearing the authors own intonation and emphasis on words. Have read the book itself many times am loving listening to these while not well enough to read :)
Buy this and enjoy!!!
The subtle knife
Wonderful story of hope and trust in the youngest of hero’s!
