When I bought these books at the bookstore I bought the entire trilogy because I knew they would be that good, and I was right! Book three has everything you could ask for as a fantasy reader-a war upon which the outcome will determine the fate of the world and the key to winning it might just depend upon two children! Great!

Overall, I'm ambivalent about Philip Pullman's books. I read them on the recommendation of a couple of friends who absolutely loved them. They're well written and I did fall in love with the characters (even the bad ones), but I found the books tedious.

I really enjoyed this series. It took me a week to read all 3 books, and then I was sad it was over.

The conclusion of His Dark Materials. I found these books to be uneven in various ways, with characters doing whatever they wanted rather than consistent and clear motivations. Still, for kids they may be OK.

I love fantasy, and I liked this series (His Dark Materials) better than the Harry Potter series. I'm no kid - I'm almost 60!

I thought this was a fantastic book. I must admit that I was just a tad disappointed by the ending. But, it's because I am spoiled by the "happily ever after" in romance novels. The book is still spectacular. Once I finished reading this series, I kept wondering why there were so many articles in the news about how the book was "anti-Christian." I'm an atheist, and I actually thought this third installment implied that, while the Church was corrupt, there was still "something greater" out there. I actually found the book more pro-God than not. It was just anti-false god. I suppose it's a matter of interpretation, though. Either way, this book did not disappoint. I only wish the story could continue.
