If I can add another component to the critical mass on Pullman, another great blogger, Sci-Fi writer and convert from atheism John C. Wright, has plenty to say about the series. With all the talk about what a good writer Pullman is, Wright points out that he continually violates a prime directive of story-telling, which is, if you the author make promises to your readers you must at some point deliver on those promises. Wright says that Pullman fails miserably on this count and instead gets bogged down in forcing his philosophy into his story.

Thanks, Mike. I think the link has been posted here before. But it can't hurt to repeat it. It's an interesting piece on Pullman and the weaknesses of his project from a sheer storytelling perspective.
