Publisher Description

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.

Christian Elton ,

Excellent read

Would highly recommend the audible audiobook.

Great Book Slightly Complicated for younger audiences

This book is amazing, telling the story of Lyra Bellequa. Pullman did a great job and if you liked this book I urge you to read the rest of the series. Amazing though if you want your kids to read this I would wait until their at least 11 as it has some dark and complicated scenes that may scare younger kids. Also same with the show all though be prepared it’s not exactly the same so you may say “ I don’t remember this “ and you might also say “Yep I remember this exact scene”. Hope this review was helpful 😀!

Screw da haters

I know some of you know it all’s think that the ending was terrible and it is a Narnia rip off but it is better than your life story.
