Absolute dogturd of an ending

So much left unfinished. So many loose threads. Maybe the author should have left all the other writers work out and put in some more of his own. Worst dogturd ending of any book series yet.

It felt like the ending was rushed

Philip Pullman is so good at drawing you into the narrative, which he does successfully until the last 2 hours or so. Suddenly it was like he realised he had somewhere else to be and so rushed the final chapters. They lacked his descriptive text and usual attention to detail. So many loose ends - perhaps he's planning on a spin off or sequel. Left feeling disappointed.

Amazing trilogy

What a brilliant and beautiful story. Full of adventure, excitement, sadness and hope.
Read beautifully by the author and a cast that so sincerely and honestly portrayed the richness of the characters. A truly wonderful experience.

Loved it.

The whole cast was amazing. I truly loved this series and got well caught up in the magic of these books. I can see why "the church" was upset about it, but it wouldn't be the first time nor will it be the last that a religion will be used in a book, or be seen as potentially evil in a book. I wouldn't take that part too seriously in my day to day life. I loved how the series was wound up too. Too many series end almost straight after the big battle leaving alot of questions to mind but this answered all the pressing ones. I thoroughly enjoyed this Audio book series.
