    This novel is an absolute work of pure genius and is in my top ten reads of all time Before I go into the depths of character and plot let me start by saying this book is up there with other fantasy hard hitters by this I mean books like The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia the books that define the genre This is high praise indeed and this novel is worthy of it The protagonist of the book is Lyra a young g

Vage 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 oth. 98171 I cleared my rating If that doesn t sufficiently refute the claim that I just wanted to give THE GOLDEN COMPASS 10 star then you re irrational and further discussion is pointless 2 I am a BOOK REVIEW BLOGGER That s what I do If you want to make cracks about being a trophy wife go right ahead but to insinuate that I would skim a book to have the minimum knowledge reuired to give the appearance of having read it so that I can give it a bad review bc reasons is an attack on my character and work ethic I m not some conservative religious zealot who think books with magic are sending our children straight to hell I don t have children I m not a Christian I do however have four nephews all under eight years old that I have already given HARRY POTTER and many many other similar books THE GOLDEN COMPASS not among them3 In regards to my perceived lack of faith in a child s intelligence I m baffled that you think that s the only issue Children aren t stupid They have good instincts Shame on youAre you going to tell me that children also have excellent impulse control That they re always rational That they aren t capable of making bad decisions when overwrought And am I also to assume that you all strictly adhered to the suggested age reuirements on books None of you were specifically informed that you read several grade levels ahead of your peers This isn t the simple issue some of you are trying to make it You MUST know I m a advocate for free thought for going against the grain for individuality vs hive mentality I believe it s important to teach children to uestion to think for themselvesBUTI feel this book crosses a line for its intended audience The two adults Lyra should be most dependent on are villains and whether or not there are good role models among the secondary cast of characters they are SECONDARY ultimately insignificant roles as evidenced when dollface takes off on her own bc her parents cannot be trusted and she knows better than they do The fact that it s true in her scenario is exactly what concerns meYou can draw a straight line through all the steps on the path to a child s inevitable conclusion that Adults are the Enemy and to do good to do right you cannot trust or obey themI think that s a very dangerous potentially harmful thing to teach a child You don t have to agree with me In fact the whole reason I m writing this years after I read the book is bc I didn t want to be that person who essentially outlines their own possibly contradictory review on someone else s post Bc those people suck FYI read between the linesI don t recommend this book for readers not in their teens Yes some children mature faster than others and especially if the child in uestion is your own you re the best judge of what is appropriate I would never tell anyone what to do with their children I am merely voicing a concern and suggesting that one might consider personally screening THE GOLDEN COMPASS before passing along to young impressionable minds This is my opinion If you are violently opposed to it I invite you to WRITE AND POST YOUR OWN REVIEW

Lyra is rushing to the cold far North where witch clans and ard bears rule North where the Gobblers take the children they steal including her friend Roger North wher. I don t love the BeatlesDucks as he is castigated by the seething massesI also don t love green vegetables punches to the face or going to the dentist though I don t think those revelatory disclosures will elicit much in the way of rage fueled attempts to slit my throat with the jagged edge of a broken CD compact disc kiddos look it up So why risk a severed jugular on the day before I m going to stuff myself so full of turkey that I ll have a snood coming out of my ear Well because it s the best way I can think of to articulate my feelings about The Golden CompassI don t LOVE the Beatles but I recognize their skill and talent and appreciate them for the impact they had on popular music There are Beatles songs that I enjoy I think I might have a Beatles album on my iPod though I ve never actually played it on my iPod But I m never going to suddenly say to myself Geez I really need to hear a Beatles song RIGHT NOW and rush off to listen to one Side note I do occasionally get an urge to listen to Yesterday but just the Boyz II Men versionso perhaps I m not the most ualified judge of musical uality on the planetIs Philip Pullman a Beatles level authorial entity Well no But he is a skilled writer with a gift for storytelling and world building He s a talented technician and stylist But I don t love The Golden Compass I appreciate that it s a well written and well conceived story but as agents revel in saying to me when I pitch them I just didn t connect with the material I can see why people ahem Kristin love this series and I certainly would not dissuade anyone who s interested in reading it from giving it a go It s well doneSomeone asked me as I was finishing this if I was going to check out the second book in the series but I think I ll Let It Be


About the Author: Philip Pullman

Plato'—meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude shabby imperfect second rate copy of something much better I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things the absolute primacy of the material life rather than the spiritual or the afterlife He argues for a republic of heaven here on EarthIn 2007 the first novel of the His Dark Materials trilogy was adopted into the motion picture The Golden Compass by New Line Cinema Many churches and Christian organizations including the Catholic League called for a boycott of the film due to the books' atheist themes While the film was successful in Europe and moderately received in the United States the other two books in the trilogy were not be adapted into film possibly due to pressure from the Catholic Church When uestioned about the anti church views in His Dark Materials Pullman explains in an interview for Third Way UK “It comes from history It comes from the record of the Inuisition persecuting heretics and torturing Jews and all that sort of stuff; and it comes from the other side too from the Protestants burning the Catholics It comes from the insensate pursuit of innocent and crazy old women and from the Puritans in America burning and hanging the witches—and it comes not only from the Christian church but also from the Taliban Every single religion that has a monotheistic god ends up by persecuting other people and killing them because they don't accept him Wherever you look in history you find that It's still going on Feb 2002 Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matterMore
