Northern Lights by Philip Pullman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fabulous children's / YA Fantasy novel. I loved the characters and the world, especially the idea that humans have daemons in a mutual symbiotic relationship. Although there was a cliffhanger ending which is my least favourite kind, I felt like there was a lot explored in the novel. There are still plenty of questions to be answered and I'm going to jump straight into book 2.
I listened to the audio version which was fantastic. The author narrates the actual narration and all the characters are voiced by different actors. The full cast just brings this to life like a play (albeit a long play at 10 hours for the audio!)
