A wonderful series. First book "Northern lights" was superb, was edge of the sit till the end. Takes you entirely to a different world altogether. Very well written. One gets absorbed into it easily. Would recommend it to all who love fiction.
It was a fantastic book. I really loved it. The first book "The Golden Compass" was also very good and I hope the third book "The Amber Spyglass" would also be very nice. Phillip Pullman is a great writer.
