I read this trilogy after seeing it plugged on the BBC's Big Read. Well what can I say. It is quite simply breathtaking. Reading His Dark Materials really takes you off to the world with Lyra and it's hard to come back. It is witout a doubt the best read I have had for as long as I can remember.
The wonderful thing about it is it's relevance to the real world, it really touches you at times, mixed with such fantastical storytelling with it's twists and turns. You won't be able to put it down!
