The Golden Compass

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, Book 1) The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A little bit late for Banned Books Week, but that’s why I read it. So I suppose that I understand why religious defenders would be upset about this book. It’s certainly not appreciative of religion in general, and more specifically religious leadership. But if you read the book for the sake of enjoying a book, like I do, rather than try to read meanings into it, it’s very entertaining. I was definitely caught up in the story and found myself turning the pages quickly more often than not. And I’m hooked in to reading the remaining two books of the trilogy as well.
Next up is Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby.
