Publisher Description

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.

Terrific books!

It's sad that this great country of ours is so resistant to anything that smacks of "non-believers". This book tells an incredible story, which also posits a world without religion, and offers up exciting visuals, ideas, plot, and riveting characters. These books should have been as popular as Twilight, Harry Potter, et al, book because of the foolish intolerant nutcases it's been smeared. If your looking for great young readers (adults enjoy it too) novels then pick this up.

HIs Dark Materials

This is an incredible trilogy to rival the Lord of the Rings!! An absolutely amazing ride, the first book is by far my least favorite, the other two get better and better. Excellent choice for all ages of readers from tweens to adults. Enjoy
