The Collectors Audiobook by Philip Pullman

The Collectors Audiobook is a brand-new e-short, set in the world of Philip Pullman’s beloved and bestselling His Dark Materials Audiobook series. This new short tale will delight the many fans eager for any new glimpse into the world of His Dark Materials.

The Collectors, written exclusively for Audible, serves as a great introduction to this series, while revealing a little something extra to fans of Lyra and her world.

Plot Summary

In this darkly delicious sliver of a tale, Philip Pullman offers a glimpse of the enigmatic girl who will become the sinister Mrs. Coulter.

On a cold winter’s night, two art collectors are settled before a fire in the Senior Common Room of a college in Oxford, discussing the unusual pieces one has recently added to his collection. What the two men don’t know is that the portrait of a striking young woman and the bronze sculpture of a fearsome monkey are connected in mysterious ways.

How could they imagine that they are about to be caught in the cross-fire of a story which has traveled time… and worlds.

Why should you listen to The Collectors?

A nice little appetizer to bring you back to the world of His Dark Materials. Not really the best sort of thing to introduce you to the other audiobooks, but certainly of interest to those who have listened and loved them.

Although The Collectors Audiobook Mp3 was short, and hence didn’t have time to build on character development, it still provided me with a glimmer of mystery and intrigue while introducing an interesting plot. The little tit buys about Mrs. Coulter I found wonderful, as always.

The writing was so smooth that it made me want to read the series even though I know what happens in the first book.

The full cast of narrators was amazing. The Collectors Audiobook free is narrated by Bill Nighy, the Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winning actor whose work on stage, screen, and radio has included Love Actually, the Pirates of the Caribbean series and a multitude of TV, stage, and radio appearances.

Philip Pullman – The Collectors is now available in audible format, almost 30 mins long, the narration by Bill Nighy and Full Cast, is so enticing that you get hooked instantly.
