I've only ever read the first book, back in '07, when I lived in San Antonio. I might have to look into the series.

I remember my dad lending me his copies of the His Dark Materials books when I was a lot younger but I never seemed to manage to get into them.

Might need to have another crack at 'em one of these days.

I occasionally read something written for the YA market.

I actually have heard that adults make up a good percentage of the readership for many YA books.

One of my dad's old school friends thought I'd like them and gave me her copies of His Dark Materials when I was around 14. They're some of my favourite books still!

It's fascinating, very well-written, and gives me so much hope for the future.

It's sooooooo good! He's a really good writer.

Everybody I've ever spoken to who's read them has absolutely sung their praises.

To be honest I don't know why I never really seemed to get into them at the time. I mean it was around the same time that I first read The Lord of the Rings so it's not like they were in any way too dense or deep for me.

I've just started reading Origin by Dan Brown. So far so good. I really like the way he writes.
