The British Book Awards Audiobook of the Year 2018.
Penguin presents the audio CD edition of La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman, read by Michael Sheen.
Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dÃ¦mon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford.
Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live.
Malcolm learns they have a guest with them; a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . . â€œAs a reader and a fan, I was hugely excited on hearing that Phillip was returning to the story of Lyra and Dust and challenging the Authority. And, as an actor, it was a true privilege to be asked to record La Belle Sauvage, the first book of this new work.â€ Michael Sheen "The best piece of narration I've ever heard" - The Booksellerâ€œMichael Sheenâ€™s narration of Philip Pullmanâ€™s new novel is better than an army of voice actors his voice is impressive, from the crisp, definitive consonants of its higher registers to the rumbly bass notes Sheen summons when some menace enters the scene, to the vast, buttery expanse of his middle range.â€ Slate
