Approx. 15 hours 10 cassettesPerformed by the author and a full castThe Amber Spyglass brings the intrigue of The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife to a heart-stopping end, marking the final volume of His Dark Materials as the most powerful of the trilogy.Along with the return of Lyra and other familiar characters from the first two books come a host of new characters: the Mulefa, mysterious wheeled creatures with the power to see Dust; Gallivespian Lord Roke, a hand-high spymaster to Lord Asriel; and Metatron, a fierce and mighty angel. So too come startling revelations: the painful price Lyra must pay to walk through the land of the dead, the haunting power of Dr. Malone's amber spyglass, and the names of who will live—and who will die—for love. And all the while, war rages with the Kingdom of Heaven, a brutal battle that—in its shocking outcome—will uncover the secret of Dust.Philip Pullman deftly brings the cliffhangers and mysteries of His Dark Materials to an earth-shattering conclusion and confirms his fantasy trilogy as an undoubted and enduring classic.

3.0 His Not So Dark Materials
The Amber Spyglass is a frustrating book. It comes so close to being as dark as the His Dark Materials trilogy title implies only to take a turn into the power of love. Pullman has a bad habit of setting up a plot twist at the end of a novel only to go in a completely different direction in the se...

3.0 His Dark Materials trilogy - Philip Pullman
To be perfectly honest, these books have been sitting on the bookcase I use for most of my TBR books for quite a while and I've never got around to even starting them. I've always liked the idea of series (well, trilogies at least) where I can go from book 1 through to book 3 without the annoyance o...

4.0
So I have been putting off reading this book because I was so nervous about the end of the series. But I finally pushed through and I have to say it was pretty good.As with the second book, I was disappointed that Lyra had a lesser role (she spends a good chunk of the book sleeping), but she does gr...

5.0 Almost completely successful ending to a strong trilogy
It is hard to sustain a trilogy through three books. All too often the first book is the strongest, with a deterioration into irrelevance by the end. I really loved the first book, but I feel like this series really built to a symphonic crescendo before tapering off into the ending. We begin The A...

5.0 The Amber Spyglass
I have to say that I thought this book was ridiculously good. There were some flow problems here and there, but other than that I thought it was great from beginning to end. I think the main reason is that though Phillip Pullman probably did consider a possibly different ending to this book. I am gl...
