Customer Reviews

One of the best series I've read

Reviewed by on

This trilogy is the kind one never forgets, the kind one knows they'll read to their children one day. The main characters in the story are twelve years old, but I felt connected to both them and the story when I read it for the first time at 16 and now again at 23. The writting is fantastic, the story addictivly compelling, each point of view will have you aching to know more. All in all, I salute Phillip Pullman for a tale so beautiful it brought me to tears.
