Philip Pullman's award-winning 'The Golden Compass' is a masterwork of storytelling and suspense, critically acclaimed and hailed as a modern fantasy classic."
I've had this book recommended to me by an IRL friend (she's the one who lent me the book in the first place) and also by a blogger who reviewed the entire "His Dark Materials" trilogy. Click HERE to pay him a visit!
I'm glad that I read this book. It was a good adventure story that left me wanting more at the end (good thing there are two more books!).
I listened to this book as opposed to reading a hard copy of it. This is another excellent audio book because there is an entire cast of voice actors that make the book seem more like a radio show (I use 'show' loosely here). I loved the voice of Lyra and now I want an armored bear ("BEARS!!!")
(I don't know about you, but I think they're kind of cute... in a slightly terrifying way)
This was a beautiful first installment to the series. I feel like I can't write an awesome review until after I continue the series, but I will still write about the individual books in the series. I can't wait to read the rest!
I give 'The Golden Compass':
