Good choice and totally deserved.

I've read the "Dark materials" trilogy and I can honestly say they're fanstastic. If people think that Potter is a good childrens book that can be read by adults, they should definitely read this trilogy, it blows it out of the water. It's genuinely deep, thoughtful, creative and wonderfully imaginative.

I can't really say stress enough just how good the whole set of books are, go and read my literary friends!

I'll have to mug my niece, who received them as Christmas and birthday presents.
