5 starsListened to this on audio, which was a lot of fun the golden compass trilogy seems like a natural progression in christian literature yes, it is christian literature, the same way the chronicles of narnia are aslan is only a lion when the reader is about 10 or so in the united states after a point, he unrepentantly becomes jesus and the four children are like, the gospels or something and the story is somewhat ruined then, because as an adult, you can t just shoehorn jesus into a lion outfit without snickering a little.
pullman however, has solved this problem i can t continue without utterly spoiling the story for everyone who hasn t read it, so consider yourselves warnedhe made jesus into a little girl even better, he made jesus into a little girl who doesn t even know she s jesus now how s that for a new twist on th 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, Where Her Fearsome Uncle Asriel Is Trying To Build A Bridge To A Parallel WorldCan 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 2.
5 I never read this as a kid and maybe I would have enjoyed it if I had, but it was just okay for me You cannot change what you are, only what you do i first read this when i was like 10 or 11 and i remember really liking it i recently came across an online thread about this book series and the message s the author was intending to convey, and i was taken aback i honestly really didnt remember anything except for talking bears that wear armour lol after the reread, i am suprised that i read this as a child this is definitely a childrens book that is not meant for children, in my opinion the deeper meanings are pretty subtle but, regardless, i have no idea how i was able to read and enjoy this because i highly doubt i really understood what was going on half the time so it was an interesting experience to read this with an adult perspective i still enjoyed it, but it was a comp I enjoyed the premise and theme of the book Pullman created well thought out and memorable characters It was a little too technical for me in regard to the depths of fantasy, i.
e I had to go back and look up the meaning of some of the made up words in the book to stay focused on what was actually happening But great imagery I m not sure if I will read book 2 or 3 of the series yet thoughts 9 8 17 1 I cleared my rating If that doesn t sufficiently refute the claim that I just wanted to give THE GOLDEN COMPASS 1.
0 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 required to give the appearance of having read it so that I can give it a bad review b c 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 COMPA
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 girl, who is parentless and seemingly friendless She has grown up in an Oxford College and has developed a detachment to her guardians She spends her days enjoying her youth and harassing those that turn out to be some of her greatest allies For her, this book is a journey of self discovery a way of exploring the limits of her character and potential Her adventure sees her befriend an armoured I don t love the Beatles Ducks as he is castigated by the seething masses I 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 Compass.
I 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 actual
