The Book of Dust

The Book of Dust, I am not sure what I was thinking when I picked this book up for the first time.  I know it was not typical of what I read but in an instant I was captivated.  It wasn’t for a couple of hours later that I put it down, but given its size I had barely made a dent in it.  This did not matter to me as I wanted to know so much more and the mystery surrounding Lyra Belacqua intrigued me.
