Book 8/50: The Amber Spyglass

I finally finished The Amber Spyglass yesterday afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed the world that Philip Pullman invented, and I was sad to leave it. No doubt I will return to these books in the future.

The conclusion left me sad and heavy-hearted. But it was a fitting conclusion, and anything else would have seemed contrived (no spoilers here...). To be honest, the book was so emotionally draining that I don't have much to say. Nothing pulls at my heartstrings quite like acts of self-sacrifice, and The Amber Spyglass was full of them.

If I had a daemon, I think it would be a squirrel. A squirrel who liked napping with kitties.
