The Golden Compass

I know that many of my readers are at least attracted to fantasy, even if it isn't their first choice. Fantasy is my first choice for a good novel; I have friends that like fantasy books; I'm probably the most fanatical about them though. The Golden Compass is a tempting participant in the world of fantasy. The trailers and glittering posters in the theater; the books.....polar bears, monkeys. Who wouldn't want to read or watch this stuff?

I for one, would, if it weren't totally anti-Christian, but it is. So I don't. Pullman is completely against Christianity and "killing God" as he puts it. These are dangerous books. I'm not going to go to a lot of particulars here, about the plot and everything, because I haven't read or watched the movie. The links below are good reviews of the movie, the books, and both. I would recommend reading them, just so you know what Pullman is up to with "His Dark Materials."
