This is an awesome fantasy that incorporates the real with the fictional seamlessly and make it all appear plausible. Set in an alternate England, it pits an endearing waif against academia and villains alike, and much to their dismay quite handily beating all the odds. In it's breathtaking and epic scope it traverses parallel worlds and leaves you on the edge eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. Bravo! I don't think 5 stars are enough!

The Golden Compass is the most interesting and most thrilling book I've read in my life! I love it because it is fantasy, but it's not to farfetched so that it's completely unbelievable. If I could, I would rate this book a 10 instead of a five. The characters are awesome, and you can feel what they're saying because of the awesome dialogue. The story is excellent, and few times will you get bored with this book. I recommend it to everyone who I can. I'm not a heavy reader, but even so, this outstanding novel makes me enjoy reading. In short, I LOVE THIS BOOK. I haven't read The Subtle Knife or the Amber Spyglass, but I'm sure they'll be half of what The Golden Compass was which is very good. Read this book. Even people who don't like fantasy will like this.

The book takes place in a different world. It is all about a little girl named Lyra and her demon Pantalaimon. She is given a instrument that she doesn't understand till later. And the book is given a 5/5 by many readers including myself.
