Book Review: His Dark Materials

His Dark Materials
by Philip Pullman

Story of Lyra who is swept up into one of the most epic battles between good and evil.

I just finished the trilogy tonight. Wow what a rush. Pullman knows how to tell a good story. I also appreciated his ability to make up vast worlds and the creatures within them is amazing. I hope that I can learn to describe in my book half as well as him. Now I should re-watch the movie!

Prior to this I'd only made it halfway through the entire series, it was great to finally finish all three books. Not sure if this series is in my top ten, I'd have to sit down and make a top 10 list first...maybe for a future posting.

Sorry so short, but this is the first one I've done and I'm not sure about how I want to format these reviews. Mainly I just want to document my reading and hopefully pass on any good book ideas to my readers.
