The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

About the Book
Average GBC reader rating [elpix_average_rating]

Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal–including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.

Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want.

But what Lyra doesn’t know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other…

GBC Review by Sofia S.

Hey GBC, and happy Halloween!! This month’s book is a longer tale, The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. I read it a few years ago, and recently finished it again, so I thought it would be a good book review. I think you’d need to be maybe 10 or 12 or over to fully appreciate the work. Otherwise, the tiny details that make up the story go over your head. It did the first time I read it, which is why I think it is worth mentioning. Lyra is an curious character and the thought process she goes through as she completes her journey is interesting.
Happy reading!!!
