Dopo la "Bussola d'oro" e "La lama sottile" Philip Pullman conclude la trilogia con un nuovo libro, arricchendo il suo universo di nuovi personaggi i gallivespiani, orgogliosi guerrieri a cavallo di libellule dai colori sgargianti; i mulefa, strani animali che viaggiano su ruote, dotati di un linguaggio e della capacità di vedere la Polvere - e apre nuovi mondi, arrivando perfino nella terra della morte. Nel "Cannocchiale d'ambra" la storia diventa epica, sfrontata e dissacrante, esplora i recessi più profondi, supera i confini tra cielo e terra, in un'entusiasmante e insieme poetica unione di avventura, mito e religione. Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

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

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
