April 2008
The Amber Spyglass by Philip PullmanNot that bad. Nothing special though. The reason I read this entire series was to find out about the wheeled creatures Dawkins made a reference to. There wasn't much about them really. I definitely enjoyed the first book in the series more than the second or third.
The Subtle Knife by Philip PullmanIt was okay, not much of plot though, it certainly feels like a bridge between the first and third in the trilogy. I'll read the third one next though.
January 2007
Northern Lights by Philip PullmanI read some great things about this trilogy as a whole (evolution creating a creature that utilizes seedpods for wheeled locomotion) looks good, enjoying this first book so far. Borrowed from my little sister. after: This was good, I'm looking forward to the next two in the trilogy.
