Lyra, ragazzina impetuosa, appassionata, onestissima e ingenua bugiarda e Will, orgoglioso, ma sfuggente come un gatto: i due, provenienti da mondi diversi, nel corso del secondo libro si sono incontrati, scontrati e poi sono diventati amici per la pelle. Will è in possesso della lama sottile, un misterioso coltello che permette il passaggio tra i mondi e che ora è l'unico mezzo per liberare Lyra, tenuta addormentata dalla signora Coulter in una grotta del suo mondo. Ma Will non è l'unico a cercare la ragazzina, centro di un'antica profezia delle streghe: la Chiesa, da cui la signora Coulter, sua madre, ora si sta nascondendo, ha decretato la morte di Lyra; suo padre, Lord Asriel, la cerca perché sa che senza di lei Will, portatore del potentissimo coltello, non si unirà a lui nella battaglia finale contro l'Autorità. Will e Lyra sono coscienti di avere un compito importante da svolgere, ma non sanno quale sia: perché la profezia si avveri non dovranno obbedire a un destino precostituito, ma essere liberi di scegliere.
Dopo La bussola d'oro e la La lama sottile, nel Cannocchiale d'ambra la storia diventa grandiosa, epica, sfrontata e dissacrante, esplora i recessi più profondi dell'animo, supera i confini tra cielo e terra, in un'entusiasmante e insieme poetica unione di avventura, filosofia, mito e religione.

(A-) 83% | Very Good Notes: A sad but necessary ending; its exceptional last chapters may have seemed unconvincing if penned by a lesser writer.
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 becomes Leggi tutto
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 slag
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 nex Leggi tutto
i just decided to copy-and-paste a response i wrote regarding this book in one of the GR groups. that is inexcusably lazy. so sue me! also, it is full of SPOILERS. - i think one of the most unique things about this book is the fact that one protagonist is a liar and the other is a murderer. not only Leggi tutto
- George, wake up! - Ungh... what time is it? - I think about four am. You were having a nightmare. - Mmmn. - 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? - Ah, Leggi tutto
If you haven’t read the ENTIRE three books, please don’t read any further. I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you because the ending is so endearing and…..lasting, that I would HATE to take it away from you. I absolutely fell in love with Lyra. Didn’t you? She was the sister I wish I would have had gro Leggi tutto
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 an Leggi tutto
