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.
