His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman.

« And she herself was partly Shadow-matter. Part of her was subject to this tide that was moving through the cosmos. »

It took me two months to read it! Especially since the book is so big (1016 pages) I couldn’t take it with me in the subway on commute…

A great book full of worlds, fates, feelings and brilliant ideas! Both adventure and philosophical tale, I enjoyed every page of it!
