Pullman - The Golden CompassIt was a mighty voice, a woman’s voice, but a woman with lungs of brass and leather. Lyra looked around for her at once, because this was Ma Costa, who had clouted Lyra dizzy on two occasions but had given her hot gingerbread on three, and whole family was noted for the grandeur and sumptuousness of their boat. (48)

 

Philip Pullman – His Dark Materials, Book 1 – The Golden Compass

I liked The Golden Compass. The Subtle Knife was ok. The Amber Spyglass was so utterly boring to me that I could not torture myself any longer even to finish the trilogy. Not even King's Dark Tower books were that bad.

I found one of those book sypnosis online though because I wanted to know how some things turned out. I thought it sounded ridiculous.

I picked this one up at my local used book store, but I haven't started it yet. Look forward to your review.

I really liked this book. It's a shame the movie was terrible!
I also read the second, but lost some interest. I have the third sitting on my shelf...waiting.
I look forward to your review.
