Rated of 5
It's amazing that Pullman can write to send a message and get it sent, as thousands-- no, millions-- of writers have tried to do in the past. This book (surely it is inconcievable that the Trilogy be considered three separate books) delivers a series of distict thoughts that shoot straight for the mind, causing still more questions to flow into the reader. The questions that are asked are answered, and the very end leaves the reader crying "What now?". After reading this Trilogy, it is extremely difficult to find another book that can live up to the reader's new expectations.
