The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, #3)The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked the way this series wrapped up. What made it amazing for me was this is an audio recording read by the author and complimented with a full cast of voice actors. On a side note it was directed by the actor who played Biggs Darklighter in Star Wars, Garrick Hagon.

You can tell the author is poking fun at mainstream religion even more in this installment of his tale. Many times there were subtle tongue in cheek moments that caused me to chuckle. BUT, everything fit into the worlds and tale he was creating.

As far as good storytelling goes, I think this book and the whole series was very enjoyable. I highly recommend it.
