Lyra and Will, the two ordinary children whose extraordinary adventures begin in The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife, are in unspeakable danger. With help from Iorek Byrnison the armored bear and two tiny Gallivespian spies, they must journey to a dank and gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone.All the while, Dr. Mary Malone builds a magnificent amber spyglass. An assassin hunts her down. And Lord Asriel, with troops of shining angels, fights his mighty rebellion, a battle of strange allies and shocking sacrifice.As war rages and dust drains from the sky, the fate of the living, and the dead, finally comes to depend on two children and the simple truth of one simple story. The Amber Spyglass reveals that story, bringing Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials to an astonishing conclusion.



"Absorbing...Like Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, [Pullman] invents a world filled with strange divinations and wordplays." (Newsweek)
"A literary masterpiece...[that] caps the most magnificent fantasy series since The Lord of the Rings and puts Harry Potter to shame...A page-turning story that builds to a powerful finish." (Oregonian)
"As the rich tale unfolds, Pullman's voice, elegant with a hint of both whisper and rasp, thoroughly enthralls, sounding by turns forceful and tender. The talented, extensive cast gives a dynamic, nearly flawless performance." (Publishers Weekly)

After two great parts a let down.

'The Amber Spyglass' is the third and last book in Phillip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' trilogy. It is good, but not nearly as engaging as the previous two books in the series, 'The Golden Compass' and 'The Subtle Knife'. I must say that I didn't love 'The Amber Spyglass', but I'm glad I listen to this audio book.

The books in 'His Dark Materials' are the kind of books that make you happy to listen to. They are full of magic, interesting characters and weird events. In a nutshell, they make you dream and awake your imagination. Additionally you have come so far with the first and second part that you definitely want to know how the story ends.

From my point of view, that is extremely important, and that is the reason why I recommend 'The Amber Spyglass', even though I only give it 3 stars. Truth to be told, the real value of this book is not to be found as a standalone, but rather as the conclusion of an outstanding trilogy that is already a classic.
