Lyra’s Oxford Audiobook Streaming Online Free
Lyra’s Oxford is a short audiobook by Philip Pullman depicting an episode involving the heroine of His Dark Materials Audiobook series. This collectible volume includes a short story by Mr. Pullman, plus a fold-out map of Oxford and various “souvenirs” from the past.
This audiobook opens two years after the conclusion of Philip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass in the comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford.
Lyra’s Oxford is set when Lyra Belacqua is 15, two years after the end of the trilogy. Lyra’s Oxford begins with Lyra and Pantalaimon spotting a witch’s dæmon.
Lyra shelters the daemon from the pursuit of a frenzied pack of birds, and then attempts to help by guiding the daemon to the home of an alchemist living in a part of Oxford known as Jericho.
The journey through Oxford reveals more dangers than Lyra had anticipated.
Why should you listen to Lyra’s Oxford?
If His Dark Materials trilogy was nothing more than a story to you, you probably won’t be all that excited about this. But, if it was more; if you fell in love with Lyra and Pan and all her friends then you should check Lyra’s Oxford Audiobook Mp3 out as it gives you that little bit more of a connection to that world and its magic.
Lyra’s Oxford is small, and packaged beautifully, with wonderful engravings and a map of Lyra’s Oxford. It also includes a cruise brochure, pages from Baedecker’s guide to Oxford, a postcard from Mary Malone, and an epigraph from that suggests that Oxford is a place where “windows open up to other worlds.”
This captivating, slight, somewhat overpriced stocking-filler of a book has one outstanding merit for Philip Pullman’s legion of readers. It answers, encouragingly, the question left hanging by the His Dark Materials trilogy.
This audiobook also shows you that even though the trilogy is finished and all’s right with the world, Lyra may be dealing with the aftermath for years to come!
