Pullman's novels have an enchanting effect on their readers, young and old. In contrast to the high fantasy of THE GOLDEN COMPASS, Pullman's THUNDERBOLT'S WAXWORK is a Victorian adventure story full of gritty turn-of-the-century realism. Yet, like his fantasies, Pullman fills this young-adult thriller with rich characterization and a magically engaging story, brought even more alive by the skillful narration of British actor Nigel Anthony. With expert smoothness, Anthony gives voice to children, drunks, constables and cruel merchants in this surprising tale of counterfeit coins and a wax museum on London's South Bank.
