these one is difintely worth reading.
Fun. I read it quickly. A new vampire twist. A very reluctant vampire. She is fun. Not as funny as the MaryJanice Davidson books but worth the wasted afternoon away from your problems!
fun reading...writing style is awesome...
Okay, I admit it. I cheated. This book was read to me - by Philip Pullman, no less, and a cast of characters. I suppose I was curious to see what the fuss is about. An author for children who appeals to adults, they tell me. I cannot say it was unappealing, but I also cannot say that I can really see the appeal. A wide range of alternative universe scientific discoveries and inventions make it give off a different feel - enough for adults to see the difference - while as a fantasy novel it does not really push the boundaries of a parallel universe very far - perhaps to keep the children happy as they can relate to the heroic Lyra. A central cast of characters are given enough time and depth to make even polar bears appear half-believable - just about believabke enought o keep the adults happy - while as a tale of morality it does not really deal with any areas of grey: black and white views of good and bad prevail - that helps the kids on track. So, it did not really appeal to the adult in me, expecting a sophisticated plot or moral torment. However, I am not convinced that it would really to the child in me either, not considering the length and the time and effort required to blend into Pullman's world of morphing animal-shaped vessels for our souls, aquatic gypsies and conspiratorial clergymen. If I get a chance I may read or listen to the next installment. I really cannot say whether I like this title or not which is most unlike me.
A very interesting premise. Love is a disease that you're required to have surgically removed when you reach a certain age. Be aware, this is part of a series and ends in a major cliffhanger. Some language and sensuality, definitely for older teens.
