    The first sentence that came to my mind after finishing this book was anyone who would give this novel less than five stars has to be either a philistine, a charlatan, or a cynic To add to that a cynic grown so dull with the slop of the world that they have been rendered unable to see the raw charm of these characters Lyra and Will, and the amazing sad kind of beauty that comes with making the irrever...

    I don t guess you could call this the Gold Standard of classic fantasy literature, that probably goes to Harry Potter, but His Dark Materials soars in that same stratosphere It is so brilliantly conceived, so intricately constructed, and so well written that it leaves one in awe of Pulliam s achievement This trilogy is composed of three separately published volumes, Northern Lights The Golden Compass in North America 1995 , The Subtle Knife 1997 , and The Amber Spyglass 2000 A sequel, I don t guess you could call this the Gold Standard of classic fantasy literature, that pro...
