The rare film

I didn't think much of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy after the first book -- to say the second and third books were a huge disappointment to me would be understating it. One day I shall write my review... Be that as it may, the first book was very good, and a movie version is coming out that looks as if it might be that rare film that actually surpasses the book version.

Well thanks, that saves me reading two books ;-)

I started the first volume a year ago while on vacation. It's still in my suitcase, so obviously it didn't particularly grab me (though in fairness when I got home I was immediately buried in projects, and just never got back to it).

Await your review with interest.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
