Well, I finished the third book. I have to say the first book was fantastic, the second intriguing, the third…. well at least it tied things up. This is why I read so few series. ;) 9 years ago
I am on chapter 17 of book 3… I had to put it down to read… oh a bunch of things including some tale about a boy wizard….
The Amber Spyglass is definitely the next book I will finish. Really. I mean it.

Philip Pullman’s trilogy consists of the Golden Compass, the Subtle Knife and the Amber Spyglass. They are fantasy novels, written for a youth audience, though since they involve children in danger, religious battles and frankly quite a lot of violence, I’m not sure they are suited for youth as much as young adult.
The problem I have had is that in each book, the build-up (about half the novel) is slow-going, but once I get to the crests of the roller-coasters, I can’t put the books down! I am now on the uphill portion of the third book. I am sure the crest is imminent, but so far no luck. This is why I don’t read series very often. 9 years ago
