Reader review: The Amber Spyglass - Paperback - 9781407130248

Will and Lyra were pulled together by fate. Yet it seems that fate is trying to keep them apart. When Mrs Coulter takes Lyra to a cave in the mountainside and Will is lost far in another world, how will they ever meet again? The Amber Spyglass is the third book in the Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman. I must admit that I haven't always been a big fan of Philip Pullman, so was a bit reluctant to start the book. I also found the characters a little difficult to understand having missed the other two books in the series, which are obviously quite complex, judging by the amount of ideas in this one! However, after a while I understood the story, and found it well written and in a beautiful style. My only issue was the cliché of Lyra and Will's relationship. While early in the story, they seem good friends and have a close friendship that seems to show what they have gone through, at the end they get together, which was disappointing. I was hoping this would be avoided; doesn't seem at all the author's style. Despite this, I found the book intriguing and different and would recommend it to older readers!
