Pretty epic, I also like the biblical references that were mixed into the story. So sad that hollywood never made a sequel to the Golden Compass Movie.
Also so sad that they called it the Golden compass.
Why? That was the name of the book.

Yes, it was the North American title but it's published as 'Northern Lights' here in the UK. It's a long story, but The Golden Compasses (the circle-drawing object, not the direction-finding one) was supposed to be the title of the series, but then the publishers in the US got attached to the name that they published the first book as The Golden Compass, in reference to the alethiometer.

I know  :'( It would've been so epic since I liked The Subtle Knife, but the Catholic Church scared New Line Cinema off. At least that's what they said. And the box office gross not being that big...

GRRRR

To be honest, I can't really answer your question. I read them really young and I have the worst memory. I remember that they're really good though!!

Yeah, the only books I even remember reading when younger were The Magic Treehouse books which were epic, Harry Potter, and then I found Maximum Ride and that led to the finding of many other great books.
