So as far as I'm concerned, this doesn't exist yet, though it should. XD

Anyways...
As a side note, they finally are making a movie; the first one is set to be released January 2007.

I'm going to be laughing when the Church has a field day over it...Laughing
It can most likely be contrasted to Narnia, since Narnia is often compared to Christianity, whereas HDM is almost...against Christianity, in a twisted sort of way. (Though Phillip Pullman actually wrote essays showing distaste towards the Narnia Chronicles...)

It's a fantasy book, with 3 books: Golden Compass, Subtle Knife, and Amber Spyglass. You really need to read them all, otherwise you'll confuse yourself.

It includes anything from Daemons, Angels, Armored Bears, to different dimensions...I can't even begin to explain it. =] And I warn you, if you're really sensitive you're going to cry after the 3rd book...It's amazing but terribly sad.

Hope you read it. Or I'll shoot you o_o lmao.

I've read them, and they are great! Lyra is an amazing heroine! Very Happy

The first one is called 'Northern Lights' over here in the UK (all rather confusing that they changed the name in the US Confused ).....oh and I wish I had a daemon Wink

It was ages ago since I did read them, but I will re-read in the future. I still think Phillip Pullman's Sally Lockheart books are better - check em out if you haven't already!

I don't like his Dark Materials because I'm not into that "fantasy land" thing.

But I have four of his other books, and he is a fantastic writer.

I've only read one of his other books, I thought it was awful, His Dark Materials light years better, even if it is that "fantasy land" thing.
