The Amber Spyglass (His Dark Materials #3) - Philip Pullman (book review)

So a feww weeks ago I finally finished the series "His dark material"

Story
Lyra and Will, the two ordinary children whose extraordinary adventures began in The Golden Compass and continued in The Subtle Knife, are in unspeakable danger. With help from the armored bear Iorek Byrnison and two tiny Gallivespian spies, they must journey to a gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone. All the while, Dr. Mary Malone builds a maagnificent amber spyglass. An assassin hunts her down. And Lord Asriel, with troops of shining angels, fights his mighty rebellion, a battle of strange allies—and shocking sacrifices.

As war rages and Dust drains from the sky, the fate of the living—and the dead—finally comes to depend on two children and the simple truth of one simple story. The Amber Spyglass reveals that story, bringing Philip Pullman's His Dar Materials to an astonishing conclusion.

My thoughts
I have read the first book in this series a few times and love but it feels like Philip Pullman couldnt contoniue the writing because I found that the second book was boring and this third one, was better but still not as I wanted it too and it didnt capture me as I had hopes it would do.

This is not a bad book but things just happenes in a weird way and it feels like the story is dragging on and not much is going on even if a lot of things is going on. As a reader, you get to follow a lot of the more boring parts and not some of the more interesting once and the end just destroyed the whole book for me. I dont hate the book but I dont love the book and it feel like this book dont have an end. There are some parts that shows the future but there is so much missing.

I think this series is readable but its only the first book that really has any good value because after that it just gets a bit boring and unsteady. I wish the book had more to give then what it has.
