The end of Lyra's quest

Last night I finished The Amber Spyglass, the last volume of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials trilogy. And what I felt was grief. Not that the story was over, although I thoroughly enjoyed these books, but the grief that comes from losing one of the few people who loves you unconditionally. Lyra and Will helped me tap into that vast underlying store of sadness that I still feel for my father, who died two and a half years ago. I said goodbye to them and sobbed for my dad. In fact, I cried myself to sleep. I hadn't done that in years.
