The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials, #3) Read Online Free - In the astonishing finale to the His Dark Materials trilogy, Lyra and Will 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 a troop of shining angels, fights his mighty rebellion, in 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.

Okay....first...make no mistake, this review contains spoilers.
Now, having read the first book (5 stars) and the second book (3 stars) I had some hope for this book. But, this book was an excruciating head-hammering look at an author making all the wrong moves.
1: Lyra's sublimation to Will beco...

This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
Warning: Contains spoilers.
The Amber Spyglass is the final volume in His Dark Materials trilogy.
I really enjoyed Northern Lights (or The Golden Compass as it is titled in the US), the first volume of the trilogy. Pullman intro...

My entire review could be this: Phillip Pullman's "The Amber Spyglass" is one of the poorest closing books of a trilogy ever written.
But I feel compelled to continue. At one point, I actually stopped reading "The Amber Spyglass," put it down and vowed not to finish, but I wanted to be able to sl...

I would not have read this book were it not for my friend Pat E. who told me several years ago that it was one of the best books she had ever read, and also said it was the first children’s book to have won England’s prestigious Whitbread Prize for Literature. So I read the whole series over the...

I absolutely fell in love with Lyra. Didn’t you? She was the sister I wish I would have had...

- George, wake up!
- Ungh... what time is it?
- I think about four am. You were having a nightmare.
- Hey, you're shaking. Come over here. It's alright. Do you want to tell me about it?
- Ann Coulter and Satan jump into the void and pull him down with them. The evil archangel.
- I'm sorry?

I’ve been putting this book off for almost four years. I’ve been truly terrified to read it for such a long time. The first book, The Golden Compass, is one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read. I adore it. The second book is something else entirely. I was horrified when I read it and trul...

When I was in high school, the local video arcade passed out fliers that that evening, after a $2 admission, you could play all the video games for free. I and several of my friends went and enjoyed ourselves.
And then suddenly they closed the doors, turned off all the games, and a preacher got up...
