** Will and Lyra beome this with the lady Salamakia and Chevalier Tialys. The former two could never truly trust the latter as Salamakia and Tialys were spies for Lord Asriel and had their own mission apart from and in dirtect contradiction of Will and Lyra. The spies saw the kids as annoying and, with Lyra, bratty and a liar. In the end, both pairs had gained the utmost respect for each other.

* AdultFear: People's kids are being kidnapped and no one knows where they're going. Think about it. Worse still, the first book actually shows us an abduction as it happens, in which Mrs. Coulter reels in Tony Makarios.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgotToGagHim: Lyra Silvertongue got her nickname by pulling this off - after being captured by the armored bears, she ingratiates herself with them, luring their leader into a false sense of confidence, ultimately leading to his downfall in a duel.

This has proven to be a fairly polarizing series. For some, the author seems to be [[AuthorTract constantly railing against religion]], and in the third book that the message [[WriterOnBoard bursts out]] [[{{Anvilicious}} of the plot's chest]] and devours it. Others argue that this angle is at least handled much more tastefully than [[SwordOfTruth other series]] with similar tendencies. For many fans, the series is really more about a breathtaking dimension-hopping odyssey that turns into a fist-pumping ode to ThePowerOfLove. Also it is hard to dispute the quality of the writing. The series was critically acclaimed, especially in Pullman's native England, and ''The Amber Spyglass'' is the first children's book to receive the Whitbread Award for a category other than children's literature.

* OneSteveLimit: Did any other non-Scandinavian readers find it confusing that the two panserbjørne (well, the only significant characters among them) are named Iorek Byrnison and Iofur Raknison?
** This is probably why Iofur Raknison's name was changed to Ragnar Sturlusson in [[TheMovie the]] [[Film/TheGoldenCompass movie]].
** I'm not Scandinavian or similar and I don't understand the confusion. Their names are less similar than "cat" and "bat".
