***Series Review*** His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

Series Summary
There are three books in this series, Northern Lights aka The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife & The Amber Spyglass. The main characters are Will Parry and Lyra Silvertongue. The series is set in parallel universes and is for young adults and children.
·         Well written
·         Interesting ideas
·         Relatable characters
·         Touching character development

·         The ending was weak
·         The slow burning plot makes it difficult to get into the series.
·         There’s a spot of violence
·         It’s anti church so religious people may find this offensive.

Best Book: Northern Lights

Worst Book: The Amber Spyglass

Overall Rating

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.
