The arrival of Lyra’s fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, to Jordan College draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle–a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armored bears. As she hurtles toward danger in the far North, young Lyra never suspects the shocking truth… Philip Pullman’s award-winning The Golden Compass is a masterwork of storytelling and suspense, critically acclaimed and hailed as a modern fantasy classic. And now, found archival documents, written by Philip Pullman and hand lettered and illustrated by Ian Beck, are included in this keepsake package for the first time ever.
This book seems to be written for a younger audience, and I have no doubt that preteens and up could read it without difficulty, but at the same time I feel that a lot of the themes and the nuance could go over the heads of younger readers. The use of accents, speech patterns, dress, and behavior to denote class, the writing of younger characters to think and behave as young people would and do while still keeping things moving forward at a good pace and keeping things both exciting and logical, the politics and relationships between adult characters: these things may be appreciated much more by adult readers than their younger counterparts. This is definitely a book which can be enjoyed by a wide range of ages. Twists and turns are difficult puzzles, but there are enough clues that a younger detective could still see what's coming if they're paying attention. The plot is thrilling, often intense, moving, and fascinating. The cultural standards surrounding daemons alone could make up their own encyclopedia. Some have claimed this book to be religious in nature, but while it does *deal* with religion quite a bit, I do not find it to be in any way advocating for any particular faith. If anything it warns against the nature of organized religion to become corrupt (without demonizing the religion itself). If you are concerned about the nature of the 'daemon' characters, be aware that the term is used in the old Greek sense more so than the 'different spelling for demon' sense; 'a supernatural being of a nature between gods and humans'. They are loosely intended to be an external version of the soul or spirit, not anything evil or bad. Be warned, though: this book does include terrible things happening to children, and several deaths. Younger children may find it frightening or upsetting. If you give this to your child be prepared to sit down with them and discuss the book when they are finished reading.
His Dark Materials has been on my to-read list for many years. I saw the film and was underwhelmed (despite the excellent casting). However, the imminent release of a new book in the series spurred me to try it, and I read the entire trilogy in two days.

Lyra is a wild girl who lives at Jordan College with scholars, in a world that is familiar but also very different from ours. Her world has a steampunk quality to it, not as advanced as our world, but it also has magic. Here, each person is paired with a “daemon”, a kind of animal familiar that is connected to them. When Lyra and her daemon Pan overhear a discussion between her Uncle Asriel and the scholars about Dust (capital “D”!), it will set her on the adventure of a lifetime. For Dust is directly connected with the Gobblers; evil people who are stealing children for some sinister purpose. And the Gobblers have taken her friend Roger.

As is common in fantasy, much of the trilogy is spent on a quest (or on the run). When Lyra is taken from the college by the beautiful but deadly Mrs. Coulter, the Master of Jordan gives her the titular golden compass – an alethiometer. The device reveals the truth to those who know how to read it; and Lyra is inexplicably able to do so without the necessary books or training. She goes on the run after learning that Mrs. Coulter is working with the Gobblers. It will be up to Lyra to save the missing children, with the help of an unlikely crew.

Overall, I thought this book was brilliant. I loved how Pullman wove his story with concepts of theoretical physics and very subtle religious allegory. The world building is downright exquisite. Lyra is a likeable, if somewhat cliché, protagonist. We’ve all met her ilk in other YA fiction, but her world helps her to stand out. In this world, the difference between children and adults will change the course of the universe.
I loved all three books in the series. However, although the main heroine is 12 years old, there is probably too much cruelty, complexity and adult themes in the story for children that age or younger. In my opinion these are books for adults who like reading about magic. I believe there are quite a large numbers of us out there.

There are at least two layers to the story. One is the Lyra’s adventures in the worlds filled with magic and amazing creatures. The other layer deals with the serious eternal matters such as meaning and nature of the conscious life, death, moral values and religion. A little warning here; the author views on religions are not exactly positive and may be offending to some readers. Also the fragment when monkey daemon is playing with snake daemon is definitely targeted at the older audience.

I loved every chapter. I enjoyed reading about different worlds, daemons, armored bears, witches, spectors, mulefa, angels, Authority, and golden dust. I liked the names of fictional geographical regions being similar to the real names because it immediately created a general picture in my mind. I also greatly enjoyed the incorporation of elements of old and current religious beliefs, ancient myths, and even some science into the plot because it added the feeling of familiarity.

Each book in the series delivered something new and interesting. It never got boring or repetitive. There were sometimes small logic lapses and I never got a hold on the true motivations and feelings of some individuals, including Lyra’s parents, but that was all minor in comparison with the rest of the great picture painted by the astonishing imagination of the author. Wow.

But if you are looking for a book about magic for your small child and you do not want to scare him/her, it may be better to go for more cozy classics such as “Pasmead” books by E. Nesbit (THE PSAMMEAD TRILOGY - The Magical Adventures of Five Friends (Illustrated): Five Children and It, The Phoenix and the Carpet & The Story of the Amulet (Fantasy Classics)).

PS. Do not watch “The Golden Compass” movie, it is no good.
