Agreed, no depth but an easy and fun read for when you have an hour or two to burn.

Lee and Hester have always been my favourite characters in His Dark Materials so I was very glad for a chance to spend more time with them. This is a nice little story to supplement the rest of the series. It's probably suitable for young readers, but I'm not sure interesting it would be without the other books as complements.

A fun easy read. It explains a bit about what happened in the beginning and helps pull in some loose strings.

Set before the events of His Dark Materials, this story about Lee Scoresby sounds like the perfect read for fans. However, it is a short story and as such does not contain the depth or layers that make His Dark Materials so captivating.

Another enticing, enthralling story by Philip Pullman. A must-read for His Dark Materials fans.
