defiantly an amazing series, Phillip Pullman writes excellent books

Although why are they calling "The Northen lights" move "The golden compass" thats not the right name!

The Armoured bear (Iorek) looks amazing on the poster though.

I've read the books through about 8 times. Still find the ending of the Amber Spyglass sad though..

I loved them. The Amber Spyglass was the best one. I felt like crying when I read that
As if Daniel Craig is going to play Lord Asriel!

Yeah, I read them ages ago now, and re-read them fairly recently. They're easily the best books i've ever read, and i've read a hell of a lot of books.
I'm fairly interested in the film, though what little i've seen of it doesn't look like it'll be able to do the books justice.
This relatively blank space indicates my failure to find or come up with an amusing comment or statement.

Me too. I always cry at the end.

can someone explain what they're about to me? basic idea is fine, you dont have to write like a 3 page synopsis about it lol
#15
Fantastically written, whilst they are said to be kids books they just blew me away. I read them right after reading the Da Vinci code, if any one thinks that is a good book I suggest you compare and contrast, Pullman is an amazing writer, simple language without being the slightest bit patronising and a mind blowing story. They are my favourite books of the last ten years, although they are facing some heavy competition from Iain M Banks (my favourite writer)

I read them a while back and was rather confused as to everything that happened. I should get around to rereading them sometime.

Basically, it's set (initially) in a parallel earth where the 'Church' has something approaching absolute power. They are experimenting on kids to try to overcome the sticky problem of original sin, the main protagonists father wants to defeat God for the benefit of mankind and everyone in the initial earth has a daemon which represents facets of their personality.

Written like that it sounds like bollocks, but it really is brilliant

I absolutely love those books. I can't find the first and third book though, I think I lost them. I'll have to buy them again and re read them.
#21
Epic books i have just re-read them to. Can't wait for the films, i hope they make all of them, altho the guy playing Lord Asriel wouldn't have been my first pick.

It's the name in America, and since the movie is being made here, they chose "The Golden Compass".

I read them when I was younger... loved the first two but couldn't get into the third. Then about 6 months ago I read them all again... absolutely amazing story

great books

EDIT : except it REALLY makes me want to have a daemon

Best books I've ever read, I first read them when I was about 13 then reread them this holiday (I'm 16 now) they're still my favourite series of books ever. In my opinion more deserving of praise than Harry Potter, truly great.

The books are kind of hard to describe in one paragraph

There's so much in them and lots of hidden meanings and philosophy.

I read all of the bloody Lord of The Rings (yes that's right they were books before films) and bloody hell I was not impressed. Sure it's a great, (although predictable) story but god, there's so much rambling extra useless information, it's so so heavy.

Oh god, yes. Owns the Harry Potter series by far. The Golden Compass was my favorite.
