Loved the world-building. A lot was going on here, wasn't there? It kind of made me dizzy and almost made me give up on the book altogether. Though some parts were dragging, the mystery of Dust and Mrs Coulter drove me to finish this book.
I can't say this one book is awesome, I found some parts to be boring and actually lacking a little heart. I'll still have to see how Lyra's little adventures will affect the big picture, so I just have to read what happens next! How will Lyra fulfill her destiny? It fills me with so much need
