forget the films and let your imagination take up the challange.
this is the second installment and at the price well worth it, and unlike the film you wont be asking what was that all about!
great story, great price.
This is the thrilling second book in Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy, read by the author and a full cast. 'Read by Pullman himself and a full cast including Julian Glover and Stephen Thorne, this is glorious listening' - "Sunday Express".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.
