Its like harry potter meets lord of the rings with polar bears thrown in for good measures!! no joking aside I loved this book, as with other reviews I found it a little hard to get into and at the start the Daemons reminded me strangley of pokemon but after that, after really letting go and getting emmersed in the vivid plot the book is a really page turner!!
Lyra is an impressive character, a great role model, full of determination and pride and honour and all those qualities that make for a great heroine however she retains a child like nature which makes her endearing!
Truely inspirational. Philip Pullman is a modern day genius.

At first I was a little apprehensive but after having the book recommended so highly to me I thought I should give it a go!! I bought a copy and finished it within a week. I thought it was fantastic!!
Some may feel the storyline jumps in a seemingly irratic manner however once the reader becomes really comfortable embracing the plot, the jumps that at first appear pointless become integral to the story.
This book is quick paced and a complete feast for the mind, a must read for all fantasy fans.
