At the great urging of my dear friend Writer Writ- Wrote? I finally read this book. At first I wasn’t able to get very into it, but that changed quite quickly. Soon enough I was swept up in the unfortunate adventures of Lyra. I just finished the book this morning and greatly enjoyed it. I already have the next two lined up and will begin them shortly. Also, I got them all for a buck each at the thrift store. Which totally rocked. So do I recommend this book? I do, I do! If you want to go on a fantastically chilling adventure, read this book.
