    Masterful, as always

    This book is almost like a love letter by Pullman to the wonders and the place of imagination in the life of everyone. Considering how so many Christians found "His Dark Materials" problematic, this book, whilst still valuing reason, almost plaintively tries to show that alongside reason there is room, and should be room, for imagination (imagination, mind you, not necessarily faith). The book was written in the same style as "His Dark Materials", meaning that it was easy to read and clearly written, but it was clearly written for an adult audience. Just like Lyra - the series has grown up and there are references to sex and swearing that was jarring at first but that was more on me as I still see Lyra as so young, even though she clearly isn't. I am so pleased that Philip Pullman decided to extend the series and I am so looking forward to the next book, especially considering the cliffhanger this one left off on.

    Amazing

    The story was captivating from the first page. I wasnot expecting to see so much of our world's current events reflected within the pages of this novel. Lyra has grown up and so has the writing. Give it a go!

    Lyra has grown, her enemies are back

    This book is quite different from the original trilogy. Lyra grew up, became different and her world and problems are not that different from ours. She's got to study and to work. Then her life is shaken by unexpected events and there she goes again on a dangerous journey, meeting enemies and new and old friends, only now as an adult. The plot is basically a sequel to the first book ("La Belle Sauvage"), her former adventures just an old memory.

    Fabulous

    I learned of His dark material few weeks ago, and was intrigued. I read book after book enjoying them greatly. This book was not an exception. Though, personally, I liked fist part of trilogy little bit more, not that this book worse or something. But I do like that fairy atmosphere, Belle Savauge is full of.
