Customer Review

on July 5, 2004
I had hoped that this trilogy bay fill the void left after finishing the Lord of the Rings. Having heard Pullman compared as a modern day Tolkein, I was expecting something on a par (and to soem extent similar) with his world.
Having read this first book, I realised this is more like a Harry Potter than a Lord of the Rings book. This of course is not a bad thing at all, and I think in many cases the world that Pullman invents is more compelling and grown up than that of Rowling.
Although not yet gripped, I enjoyed the book alot, at times getting absorbed in it's world. Partilularly the idea of the daemons.
I am looking forward to reading the second in the series, and see how things develop.
