Review of 'His Dark Materials Trilogy (The Golden Compass; The Subtle Knife; The Amber Spyglass)' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Good book with interesting characters and plots.
Most of them still familiar from book 1, which I enjoyed more.

Towards the end it felt as if there were quite a lot of named characters that will not return in book 3, making it all a bit confusing at moments.

Still, a very worthwhile read. :)
