Yeah...I only read three books last month. All from the same series. Well this will be a short review! I read His Dark Materials years ago and completely fell in love with them - the adventure, the mystery, the multi-layered characters, the ending (OMGCRY!)... I must admit I wasn't quite as bowled over the second time around. I remembered hardly anything from my first read so a repetitive story wasn't the issue, it was more that the whole thing seemed a bit slow and plodding at points, especially in the second book, although I think that's true of a lot of trilogies. It's still an amazing series though - Philip Pullman is far superior to a lot of Young Adult writers out there and has a great way of making everything sound intriguing and creating pictures in your head through his descriptions. I probably won't read them again (in fact I gave my copies to a girl at work who had never heard of them, what?!) but I'm glad I gave them another read from an adult perspective.
Has anyone read His Dark Materials? Or any other Philip Pullman books? I loved The Broken Bridge too.
