Best Book: Northern Lights
Worst Book: The Amber Spyglass
3 stars – it’s a good series but I think that it’s better suited for younger readers after completing the series. The beautiful descriptions make this worth a read but then that’s negated by the slowness of the plot. The characters are likable and easy to relate to.
