Publisher Comments:

The only hardcover omnibus of the best-selling and award-winning fantasy trilogy, in a Contemporary Classics edition.

 

Philip Pullman's trilogy is a masterpiece that transcends genre and appeals to readers of all ages. His heroine, Lyra, is an orphan living in a parallel universe in which science, theology, and magic are entwined. The epic story that takes us through the three novels is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armored polar bears, magical devices, witches, and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound reimagining of Milton's Paradise Lost that has already inspired a number of serious books of literary criticism. Like J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis before him, Pullman has invented a richly detailed and marvelously imagined world, complex and thought-provoking enough to enthrall adults as well as younger readers. An utterly entrancing blend of metaphysical speculation and bravura storytelling, His Dark Materials is a monumental and enduring achievement.

A fastidious piece of writing which depicts the very toughts and rules of life; it spirals you into a world of daemons, golden Dust. And the very writing itself is enough to convince any soul to join in on the advetures Pullman's charactors are forced to face.

What absolute fun! I read all three in a row and couldn't stop. This is meaty and satisfying stuff. I wish he'd write a fourth.
