This novel is an absolute work of pure genius, and is in my top ten reads of all time Before I go into the depths of character and plot, let me start by saying this book is up there with other fantasy hard hitters by this I mean books like The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia the books that define the genre This is high praise indeed, and this novel is worthy of it The protagonist of the book is Lyra, a young girl, who is parentless and seemingly friendless She has grown up in an Oxford College and has developed a detachment to her guardians She spends her days enjoying her youth and harassing those that turn out to be some of her greatest allies For her, this book is a journey of self discovery a way of exploring the limits of her character and potential Her adventure sees her befriend an armoured polar bear and become the wiel I don t love the Beatles Ducks as he is castigated by the seething masses I also don t love green vegetables, punches to the face, or going to the dentist, though I don t think those revelatory disclosures will elicit much in the way of rage fueled attempts to slit my throat with the jagged edge of a broken CD compact disc, kiddos look it up So, why risk a severed jugular on the day before I m going to stuff myself so full of turkey that I ll have a snood coming out of my ear Well, because it s the best way I can think of to articulate my feelings about The Golden Compass.
