The Golden Compass

Posted by lori . 3 Comments

 

The Golden Compass is the first book in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy.  It is set in a parallel universe to our own.  Lyra Belacqua is the protagonist; a precocious orphan growing up at Oxford College.  This is a book with a great, fun story along with fantastic characters, creatures and adventures.  It is multi-layered and beautifully written.  This is a book you can enjoy for pure story alone or analyze at length.  I highly recommend reading the entire trilogy.
