I actually finished the Amber Spyglass (Young Adult Fantasy 518 pages) by Philip Pullman a few days ago but haven’t been able to get to the library to write up this review until now.
Out of the entire trilogy, I think this book moved the fastest. I was impressed by the speed of this novel versus the previous two books in the series.
I continue to think that this is a very imaginative set of books. There are people that don’t look like people, different ways of seeing the world, and a vibrancy of life that’s just plain neat. I liked the wheeled characters and their method of communication. I liked the use of a couple common mythological theories. I liked the story and I liked the characters.
I already spent a good deal of time in my reviews of the previous books talking about the religious and political elements, so I don’t really feel the need to do that again here.
Kind of a short review, I know. But I’m a bit crunched for time today.
