Thoroughly entertaining. While it fell short of the bar set by Pullman's original trilogy, His Dark Materials, still left me looking forward to more. A prequel revealing how Lyra (one of the great characters of lit) came to Jordan College, it also feels anticlimactic because we know Lyra will become the heroine in 10 yrs. Pullman peoples his book with new villains, mysterious characters, shadowy organizations, and some familiar faces. Bk#49
Book #49: Although I have seen many 100 Greatest Book lists that put the entire Bible on them, out of my four lists only The Book of Job had made the cut. The Book of Job is often considered to be one of the best stories in the bible because of its attempts to justify the presence of good and evil both together on Earth. As I was reading through...
Life lesson #49: Always bring a book to your brother‘s piano lesson. ♥️📚🎹
Susan is the best beta-reader of dissertations ever in Giant Days #49.
These characters have grown so much over the years and keep growing. 48th book and I am still loving them. Now I will have to wait for #49. I do wonder who the candy thief is and if Dallas will ever catch them? I also wonder, if Dallas and Roark will ever have a kid? Of course if they did, would that end the series🤔
Formulaic? Yes. But it‘s a formula, that, after reading 48 books in this series, I still enjoy. This one didn‘t get all 5 stars since (IMHO) the ending seemed to drag on and on. But - am I ready for #49? You bet!
