Oh...oh...The Amber Spyglass...I finished it...I cried and cried. It's so good, and exciting, and true. The characters who you don't like but are on the side of right, or who are cruel but then do good things and you can't see why. Decisions that are made foolishly, things that could have saved the day but are forgotten until too late. Real and true and oh so sad but oh so lovely.
