It read well enough
on 8 July 2014
The book was a comfortable read, over some of the story lines it labours and with others it quickly skips [like when Charlotte decides to up and leave]. As to the ending, well it didn't really end, it just stopped, so many questions unanswered so many issues unresolved.
This book is the first in the Pullman series, I might consider trying book 2 especialy if it is free or just a few pence for the kindle version, but it is not a book I would invest funds in as i am unlikely to want to reread it, as entertaining as it was.
