Book in Review: His Dark Material

I just finished reading Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy.  The first book, also a motion picture, is The Golden Compass, followed by The Subtle Kinfe, and concluded with The Amber Spyglass.

Wow was this trilogy AWESOME.  His Dark Materials has a special place in my heart right alongside Harry Potter.  I couldn’t put the third book down, and I greatly enjoyed the first two.  This is a fantasy trilogy, where Pullman creates a wonderful world with all sorts of mystery, adventure, and wildness.

His Dark Materials is a must read if you’re a fantasy fan and if you enjoy Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.  I LOVE IT!!!!  Every few chapters I would throw the book down and run around skipping and clapping.  Holy shit.  I still think HP7 was the best thing that ever happened to me, but these books are WILD!  Just as I wish I was Harry Potter himself, I wish I was Will Parry running around with Lyra Silvertounge.  Who wouldn’t want to?  She’s hot.

Check out the box set here.

    I remember reading those books, they were great. Although I can’t remember exactly what happened so I’ll have to read them again. Also, you need to correct the third book’s title to The Amber Spyglass. Oh, and happy belated birthday!

  • Yea man, I read that a long time ago. I didn’t understand anything, including that combo letter “a+E”, but it was siccccccmode. Yea, I think a lot of fictional characters are hot too. Like the mouse girl in Fivel Goes West.

  • Thanks for the correction, Daniel!

    Fivel Goes West is awesome! Man I need to buy that movie.
