la notte di Ognissanti e Zamiel, il Demone Cacciatore, sta arrivando a reclamare la sua vittima. Si dirige verso il Castello Karlstein, dove il malvagio conte ha un piano astuto e crudele: intende sacrificare le sue giovani nipoti per salvarsi la vita. Riusciranno Lucy e Charlotte a sfuggire al diabolico zio e al suo viscido scagnozzo Herr Snivelwuerst? La domestica Hildi, il sergente Snitsch e il dottor Cadaverezzi saranno in grado di aiutarle all'ultimo minuto, o le abbandoneranno alla loro triste sorte? Una cosa sola è certa: il Demone Cacciatore non tornerà nella sua buia foresta senza una vittima.

I do not profess to be an expert on the works of Philip Pullman, but I have read a few, and I have to admit this book, of which I never knew of its existence until I saw it on the shelf at the library, is one of his finest. In a writing style and narrative I feel to be completely different from his
Count Karlstein isn't as good as Clockwork -- maybe that's the fact that I didn't read it as a child and I don't have associated nostalgia, though. Anyway, it's in a similar vein, a little bit of a Gothic story with suspense and an improbably wonderful conclusion. Fun, easy to read, but not ground-b Leggi tutto
Ein ehemaliges Theaterstück aus Philip Pullmans Tagen als Lehrer aufgearbeitet als kindgerechter Schauerroman. Und kindgerecht war es leider - aber auch putzig. Und witzig! Glatt wünscht man sich einen Lehrer wie Philip Pullman, der in der eigenen Schule - oder der Schule der eigenen Kinder - solch e Leggi tutto
This full cast recording was awesome. It was a little distracting have the music start up in the middle of the story for no apparent reason (other than to manipulate our mood) but overall I loved the actors and sound effects. Pullman is a great writer, and knows how to make memorable characters. His Leggi tutto
