Yeah, absolutely, His Dark Materials (trilogy: Northern Lights, The Subtle 
Knife, and The Amber Spyglass) is just extraordinary. In my opinion, now 
that I've read 4 Potter books in 5 days, Pullman's writing is far superior 
ot Rowling's.

Anyone that liked Potter but hasn't read His Dark Materials is doing 
themself a grave literary injustice.
