Review of 'The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, Book 3)' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

I really wanted to love this book... but I can't.

It's the weakest of the three, and instead of an epic finish to an epic fantasy, it just wandered out with a whimper.

The authour just keeps pulling characters out of thin air to make a point with, then slots them back on the rack until he needs them later. It's book three by now for goodness sakes, enough setup and world building and start exploring consequences. Almost all the characters feel like a means to an end instead of friends and enemies in a shared journey. Even the ones that are bigger than life and so vivid in book one like the armoured bears and Lee are shadows of their former selves here (pun intended.

If you've read this far you'll have to finish the series, just don't expect too much. Barely a three based more on the better …
