    Anyone read it? Thinking of reading it? I'm about halfway through- recommendation from my English teacher. I'm kind of going through phases of hating it and loving it. On the whole it seems a bit contrived.

    I thought it was brilliant! Very Philip Pullman-esque, and completely captivating all the way through.

    I think I've heard abt it. And maybe read it too. Is it abt Ketrel and Bowman?

    It's very good, amazingly well written, but the plot is HUGELY complicated and might give you a bit of a headache later on.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it, however.

    I didn't think the plot was that complicated...not as complicated as His Dark Materials.

    I started reading this but got distracted. The small part I've read so far was really interesting though (it's about where he reads to the blind girl who's name I've forgotten- not far at all!).

    Got to try and finish it...
