Daily Book Talk

His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and the Amber Spyglass) by Philip Pullman

Awesome, it's up there with Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Susan Cooper.  He is part of the 'Steam Punk' genre that is catching so many readers.  The second and third books both head off in directions that are more and more distant from what Pullman created in The Golden Compass.  Mostly new characters and settings, but it all works and is entirely entertaining.
