"The Golden Compass" by Philip Pullman: A discussion of fantasy adventure
dim. 15 septembre à 21:00
Thanks to everyone who came to our last meeting. "Shipwrecks" is a hell of a downer, but we are all a bit wiser for it. Together, we took a vote and this was the book we decided to read. The Golden Compass takes place in a parallel world, in which people's souls manifest as physical animal companions. Unlike most fantasy, this book takes place in real world places, London, Oxford, the Arctic. This comes at a good time. This is the first book in the "His Dark Materials" series. It will soon be an HBO show. If you want to get excited to read this, go watch the trailer. Read if: You like steampunk, brave little girls, and/or armored talking bears named Iorek.
Don't read if: You are super into organized religion, or think the Mongolian Empire did nothing wrong.
