Product description

Lyra is no ordinary child. Plucky, wild, feisty and fey, she leads a wild and carefree life tramping the roofs of Jordan College, Oxford, and fighting with the Gyptian youngsters on the canal. But now children are mysteriously disappearing. A reign of terror is coming. And when Lyra’s friend Roger disappears, she sets off on a mission to save him. It’s a journey into an Arctic wilderness of ice and snow, where witch-queens ride the skies, armoured bears roam the snow… and scientists conduct experiments of unspeakable terror. Does one girl have the courage and cunning to stop them? Winner of the Carnegie Medal, this is the classic story of Lyra’s incredible journey to the frozen north – and the very edge of her world.

“Rarely, if ever, have readers been offered such a casket of wonders.” Independent

    I like this book, in fact I find this book truely fascinating. However, it does not hold the same charm for me as some novels do. It is thrilling and, sometimes even slightly scary. The whole idea of parellel worlds excites me greatly. But, I find that it is, while not a dificult read, very long. Too long in my opinion. But Pullman definitely has his own style and no one can complain about that!
