Controversial Triology

Book 3

Book: The Amber Spyglass

Author: Philip Pullman

Recommend: No- it’s a not so subtle attack on Christianity.

I finished the third book in the trilogy a few minutes ago and breathed a sigh of relief. I have never been so glad to be finished with something. It takes everything in the Bible and twists it. It turns God into an angel who dies and is controlled by others (Enoch to be exact).

The main characters continue to be compelling and the story is inventive and original, as well as a way to say that believing in God is childish.

This books is not one to be read by children, even though that is the intended audience. Their impressionable minds will be effected by this series. I am thankful that I did not stumble across this one when I was younger.
