Description: [The trilogy!]

His Dark Materials, a trilogy of fantasy novels by Philip Pullman, comprises Northern Lights (1995 — released as The Golden Compass in North America), The Subtle Knife (1997) and The Amber Spyglass (2000). The trilogy follows the coming of age of two children, Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry, as they wander through a series of parallel universes against a backdrop of epic events. The story involves fantasy elements such as witches and armoured polar bears, but alludes to a broad range of ideas from fields such as physics, philosophy, and theology. Pullman has published further a related short story, "Lyra and the Birds", which appears with accompanying illustrations in the small hardcover book Lyra's Oxford.
It was very interesting to read this three books. I had so much fun but I also cried. I preffer such books from any other

I loved the book but I saw the movie and was filled with RAGE. The director was too careful in not wanting to piss people off but god dang it. He was the same director that filmed American Pie. He filmed a scene with a guy making love to a pie, but he's too afraid of a slight Athiestic theme? Ugh.

I fell the same way about the movie. What the heck. i really have got to stop reading the books before I go see the movies. What was worst was I had just finished the trilogy right before we went to see the movie.

I think one of the things that upset me most about the movie was where they ended it. I was like, "?!?!?! that's not where it's supposed to end?!?! it's not happy happy joy joy!!! How are they going to make the second movie focused on Will??!?!!" Fortunately, there is no second movie. :FOOD!:

I wish I had never seen the movie! It was awful :(
I went back and re-read all the books just to get rid of the movie's aftertaste...
This was one of my favorite series by far... it's so well-written that I had my younger sister (13) read it, and I had my book club read them (a bunch of 20-something ladies), and I also gave them to a guy friend of mine and I had three completely different reactions and discussions about them!
hmm... it's been a while, so I may just go read them again now.. =P

I almost always skipped parts of these books that didn;t involve Lyra or Will. haha because of that i didnt understand the story fully, but other than that it was a good read. I think i liked the last book the best. Alothough it was pretty sad to read how they had to slplit up in the end :( T.T

Oh my gosh, I remember reading the Golden Compass in 8th grade and I loved it. The others were amazing too. Forgot to mention this series in the books that made you cry list cause there were a couple of good moments in the there. I think this was just beautifully done.

i've read all the three books and i liked it... i only read it because a movie was released and i wanted to compare the book with the movie... too bad the movie was not at par with the book.
