In many ways, I liked this book even better than the first one, Northern Lights (aka The Golden Compass). I liked how they moved between 3 different worlds, and how there were many different subplots going on. There was one thing I didn't like however, and that was the cliffhanger ending which left me feeling I wanted to read the next book immediately, even though I don't have it in my possession at the moment.

So I'm looking forward to the third and final book in this trilogy, The Amber Spyglass so I can find out what happens to Lyra and Will.
