The Ruby in the Smoke has to be without a doubt one of the worst books I have ever encountered. It lacks interesting, well developed characters and has the most bum numbingly boring plot. I didn't know what was going on half the time because it was just so tedious. I have never read any other of Philip Pullman's books and I am not planning to. How anyone can enjoy this book is beyond me. We read it in class and it was the worst half term of my life. I have three words to sum up this book: Generic, boring and plotless. Could someone please tell me why you like this book? Anyone? I guess not. It is God awful. I give it a one out of five and if I could I would give it zero because it is just that bad.
