children book, but general idea is very good.
- I got put onto this gem by Phillip Pullman by the BBC's Big Read...
it is certainly an excellent read. Even though it is a trilogy of
children's books, its mixture of SF and fantasy and alternative
universes puts most recent adult SF to shame, and Pullman can really
write... his action sequences for example are well-written, and his
knowledge of various bits of folklore, quantum physics etc makes this
a very intelligent piece of writing...
