Pullman thoughts - No 1

Pullman thoughts - No 1

Last night I finished 'Northern Lights' - the first part of Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy. A book I thoroughly recommend. Agree with my ma that it's not *actually* a children's book, but can't see how it could have been published any other way. Contains some great ideas, and some truly brilliant characters - knocking a certain H Potter out flat. But it comes with a caveat...

Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you start the third part of the book ANY later than 9 in the evening.

I finished it at 3:30 this morning, after an unputdownable session, and boy am I feeling it.
