The Subtle Knife


Title: The Subtle Knife
Trilogy: His Dark Materials Trilogy
Author: Philip Pullman
Pages: 341

'Will is twelve years old and he's just killed a man.'

Yes, that's the very first sentence of the blurb, simple catchy and intriguing.We continue our journey in the Dark Materials trilogy with a new hero... the bearer of the subtle knife.. the ultimate weapon of all times.. but why? Lyra acompanies Will on his journey (narrated in Will's view), and discovers the naked truth of Lord Asriel's plans. The second book is surprisingly more amusing than the first, Philip Pullman seems to get better with each each page i flip. This unique blend of reality, theology, science, and fantasy would basically turn any boring weekend into a fireworks display.
