5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story of Mr Karlson is one which evokes many feelings. It is funny, humbling and quite believable. A book which hooks it's reader from the start and takes them on a journey through history to present day in a colourful and entertaining manner. The characterisation in this book is wonderful and allows each to 'pop' with personality. A highly entertaining recommended read

5.0 out of 5 stars The Amber Spyglass, 19 Mar. 2004
The third part of this wonderful series "The Amber Spyglass" does not let the reader down.
The final part takes us through many worlds each being somewhat familiar...yet completely different to our own. The wonder of this series is the invitation you are given to think about life and the world on several different plains and not see evereything as black and white....encompassing contrasting genres of science and religion in a universe filled with metaphor. There is a coaxing to read between the lines if you can handle what you might find.
If you read the first two in the series you will have developed a sense of familiarity with the characters, the main being Lyra. Throughout the first two novels we witness this rebellious little girl suffer pain, fear and heartache which she battles through growing in strength, courage and intelligence. Part 3 heralds an older Lyra who, at the same time as continuing her battle for a safe world and essentially trying to get home, is experiencing new emotions and coping with the knowledge that her existence must shortly change for ever.
The Amber Spyglass offers more war, struggle, self discovery, growth and love. Ending the trilogy in a way that leaves the reader inspired, enlightened and a little bit afraid for the world we know and the possibilities of worlds we don't.
