HIS DARK MATERIALS IS NOW AN HBO ORIGINAL SERIES STARRING DAFNE KEEN, RUTH WILSON, JAMES McAVOY, AND LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA!
The modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an “All-Time Greatest Novel” and Newsweek hailed as a “Top 100 Book of All Time.” Philip Pullman takes readers to a world where humans have animal familiars and where parallel universes are within reach.
Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal--including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.
Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want.
But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other...
A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass is the first in the His Dark Materials series, which continues with The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.

..and great book! Really loved it. Not only for children!!!
Not only is this book standing on its own merits and already showered by numerous prizes but the audiobook version is first rate ! This is the first part of trilogy called 'His Dark Materials'. The title comes from a verse out of John Milton's ' Paradise Lost'. A full cast of actors and Philip Pullman, himself, as the narrator. This version could prove more fulfilling than the upcoming movie as no compromize on lenght nor content was taken here. The story revolves around a young girl, named Lyra, as she journeys out of childhood's innocence and into experience and wisdom. This story will enthrall a 12 year old but will more than keep a 50 year old captivated. Quantum Physics, Theology, Cosmology collide with armored bears and witches into a highly coherent and satisfying narrative.
