I really liked this book, the whole trilogy really. It is a little depressing and violent, but it has a lot of good points and morals.

My second Philip Pullman read, and I enjoyed this one the best so far. Didn't even know it was considered a "young adult" book when found this brand new looking book at local swap. A thorough story with engaging characters. Loved the different personalities. Actually looking forward to continuing the Sally Lockhart trilogy.

An OK read. None of the depth and intrigue of His Dark Materials, though.

Not a bad mystery; kind of in the English model, not much gore, emphasis on the mystery.

Says "young adult" but grown-ups who enjoy who-dun-its will not be disappointed.
