Annotation:

A war is brewing in Lyra's world--a battle between those who would keep people in ignorance and those who are willing to fight for true freedom. Lyra is thrust into the middle of the conflict when her uncle Asriel comes to Oxford, fomenting rebellion, and when her best friend, Roger, suddenly disappears. Lyra learns that Roger was kidnapped by a shadowy organization that steals children and, it is rumored, experiments on them. To find him, she will travel to the cold, far North, where armored bears and witch clans rule and where her uncle Asriel is attempting to build a bridge to a parallel world. What Lyra doesn't know, mustn't know, is that her actions will have consequences not just in her world, but in all the worlds beyond.

Reviews :

Claire Rosser (Kliatt)
Librarians may recall the numerous reviews of praise this fantasy received a year ago when it appeared in the U.S. in hardcover. At that time, reviewers and publishers treated it basically as a part of children's literature. This paperback edition will take the book from that too-narrow category, with its cover and the introduction by Terry Brooks presenting the work to a wider audience of all ages. Pullman is perhaps best known to YA librarians for his highly praised trilogy set during Victorian times which began with The Ruby in the Smoke. The Golden Compass has been compared to the finest fantasy adventures in the English language: to the work of Lloyd Alexander, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien. This is a must purchase, and YA and adult readers will find it more appealing in this paperback edition of the first book of the projected trilogy. KLIATT Codes: JSA*--Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 1995, Ballantine/Del Rey, 351p. 18cm. 96-93072, $5.99. Ages 13 to adult.
(PUBLISHER: Ballantine Books (New York:), PUBLISHED: 1997 c1995.)

Jack Smith (HeartOfTexas)
The recording not only holds the listeners' attention for nearly 11 hours--it also leaves them begging for more! Listening Library has taken Pullman's plot of regal stature and has crowned it with a majestic performance by some of the finest actors of the London stage. The book's genre is difficult to classify but has been referred to as science fiction/fantasy. It is not a children's book and will be best appreciated by young adult and older listeners. The child heroine, Lyra, and her daemon Pantalaimon are drawn into adventure that challenges the imagination at every turn. Lyra finds herself in possession of a strange "golden compass" that reads truth. She finds that she and the compass are objects of an obsessive hunt by mysterious forces. THE GOLDEN COMPASS, Book I of the "His Dark Materials" trilogy, is also divided into three parts: I. Oxford, II. Bolvangar, and III. Svalbard. The trilogy's second book, The Subtle Knife, is now in print. The sequel's production as a book on cassette is eagerly awaited. "His Dark Materials" takes its name from a John Milton quote found in Paradise Lost: Book II. Librarians are urged to add the trilogy's first audio book to their acquisitions and to refer older readers and listeners to Milton's works. (Unabridged. 8 audiocassettes. 10 hrs. 49 mins. A full-cast production.) Fiction, Highly Recommended. Grades 8 and up. 1999, Listening Library, $59.98. Ages 13 up.

Phillip Pullman spins a magical tale which will draw in older listeners as well as teens. Natasha Richardson's light, ethereal voice wraps us into the magic like the "daemons," or spirits, that accompany each character. She almost whispers some of the text as young Lyra whispers to her daemon in a setting that is now and other-worldly at the same time. Richardson describes characters and events with a softness that heightens the fantasy while not neglecting the action of the pursuit of evil in the form of kipnappers and unbeatable polar bear warriors. The text is so image-laden with wondrous descriptions, Richardson needs to add little to this compelling storytelling. R.F.W.

Sally Estes (Booklist)
In the first of a planned trilogy, Pullman has created a wholly developed universe, which is, as he states, much like our own but different in many ways--a world in which humans are paired with animal "daemons" that seem like alter egos, only with personalities of their own. The story begins at Jordan College in Oxford, where young Lyra Belacqua and her daemon, Pantalaimon, are being reared and educated by the Scholars. Although a lackluster student, Lyra possesses an inordinate curiosity and sense of adventure, which lead her into forbidden territory on the night her uncle, Lord Asriel, visits. He's there to solicit funds for a return journey to the distant arctic wastes, where he has observed and photographed strange goings-on, including a mysterious phenomenon called Dust that streams from the sky and a dim outline of a city suspended in the Aurora, or Northern Lights, that he suspects is part of an alternate universe. After he leaves, Lyra finds herself placed in the charge of the mysterious Mrs. Coulter and in possession of a rare compasslike device that can answer questions if she learns how to read it. Already shocked by the disappearance of her best friend, Lyra discovers Mrs. Coulter's connection with the dreaded children-stealing Gobblers and runs away, joining a group of gyptians bound for the North to rescue missing children. Lyra has also learned that her uncle is being held prisoner in the North, guarded by formidable armored bears. Filled with fast-paced action, the plot involves a secret scientific facility, where children are being severed from their daemons; warring factions; witch clans; an outcast armored bear, who bonds with Lyra; and more. It becomes evident that the future of the world and its inhabitants is in the hands of the ever-more-resilient and dedicated Lyra. A totally involving, intricately plotted fantasy that will leave readers clamoring for the sequels. Category: Older Readers. 1996, Knopf, $20. Gr. 7-12. Starred Review.

In The Golden Compass, Pullman gave us a breathtakingly rich vision of a world shades removed from and more mystical than ours, infused with magic and informed by reason, where everyone has a personal daemon in animal form that is the perfect complement of their personality, and to which they are bound with their whole soul. We met Lyra, the impudent, shrewd daughter of the powerful scholar, Lord Asriel. Left to her own wild devices under the benevolent care of elderly professors, she finds her joy running wild with the Oxford street children. When Lyra foils an attempt to assassinate her dangerous father, events are set in motion that destroy her innocent childhood. A photograph of an alternate world, rumors of mysterious Dust, and the increasing disappearances of children all serve to move Lyra down the path of a terrible destiny. With Lord Asriel imprisoned, the glamorous Mrs. Coulter and her menacing daemon come to take Lyra from her home. Lyra receives a curious instrument--an alethiometer--which always tells the truth, if one is able to discern the layered meanings of its pictograms. Frightened when she discovers Mrs. Coulter is not only her mother, but also the leader of the Oblation board--those behind the abductions, performing unspeakable experiments, severing children from their daemons--Lyra escapes, determined to rescue her father and a missing friend. She begins a journey to the far North, making strange allies along the way, from the King of the Gyptians to Iorek Byrnison, leader of the great white armored bears. The conclusion is aching, haunting, and epically beautiful. In The Subtle Knife, Pullman continues Lyra's story, as tensions escalate. Will, a boy from a parallel Oxford, is on a quest to find his own father, who had vanished on a Northern expedition. Fleeing after killing one of the mysterious men who question his mother, Will finds a hole from his modern England into the world of Cittigazze, where adults are prey to soul-eating Spectres, and where people's daemons are on the outsides. There, he meets Lyra, out to revenge the death of her friend and find out more about the elusive Dust. The two join forces and form an uneasy, fierce friendship. Victor in a bloody fight, Will learns that he is destined to be the bearer of the subtle knife, a blade able to cut holes into other worlds. As the skies of Cittigazze fill with the massive movements of angels heading to join Lord Asriel in his epic battle against the Authority, and the evil Mrs. Coulter gets nearer and nearer to Lyra, Will and Lyra are pulled into a growing maelstrom of great struggles and betrayals. These first two volumes of His Dark Materials trilogy are, simply, magnificent. Pullman has the power of a master fantasist. He imbues an age-old classical struggle with a new mythic vision, the depth and realization of which are staggering. His style is tight, compelling, and nearly flawless. Characters quickly become friends, so layered and immediate are they, inspiring the reader to tears of loss or wonder. These two titles stand in equal company with the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis. Note: This review was written and published to address two titles: The Golden Compass, and The Subtle Knife.

Susie Wilde (Children's Literature)
Phillip Pullman has begun a new fantasy trilogy with The Golden Compass, a book that's been selling well to both child and adult readers. The story takes place on an alternate earth in a time that seems similar to the late 19th century. In this world, science and magic vie for power and each human possesses a daemon, a being in animal form who is powerfully linked with its owner. The main character is Lyra, an innocent, who is determined to rescue children who have been snatched for mysterious scientific purposes. She also wants to free her father from a race of warrior polar bears, and discover her place in the world. The story's cast is varied, but always fascinating, including witches, poor folk with rich hearts, and protective academics. Pullman unites adventure, philosophy, scientific inquiry, and magic in ways that are fresh and thought provoking. 1996, Knopf, $16.00 and $5.99. Ages 12 up.

Bette D. Ammon (Kliatt)
To quote KLIATT's Sept. 1999 review of the Listening Library audiobook: Lyra, the heroine in this first book of the trilogy, is tenacious, courageous, and nearly foolhardy. She joins forces with friends, witches and an armored bear to battle evil forces that kidnap children for cruel experiments. Lyra is caught between the conflicting plans of the mysterious and scholarly Lord Asriel and the wicked, self-serving Mrs. Coulter. The golden compass helps steer Lyra, and her daemon Pantalaimon, towards truth in this multi-layered fantasy adventure... riveting story... wonderful series... (His Dark Materials, Book I) KLIATT Codes: J*--Exceptional book, recommended for junior high school students. 1995, Random House/Dell Yearling, 404p., $5.99. Ages 13 to 15.

Kirkus (Kirkus)
Pullman (The Tin Princess, 1994, etc.) returns to the familiar territory of Victorian England, but this time inhabits an alternate Earth, where magic is an ordinary fact of life. Lyra Belacqua and her daemon familiar Pantalaimon spend their days teasing the scholars of Jordan College until her uncle, Lord Asriel, announces that he's learned of astonishing events taking place in the far north involving the aurora borealis. When Lyra rescues Asriel from an attempt on his life, it is only the beginning of a torrent of events that finds Lyra willingly abducted by the velvet Mrs. Coulter, a missionary of pediatric atrocities; a journey with gyptian clansmen to rescue the children who are destined to be severed from their daemons (an act that is clearly hideous); and Lyra's discovery of her unusual powers and destiny. Lyra may suffer from excessive spunk, but she is thorough, intelligent, and charming. The author's care in recreating Victorian speech affectations never hinders the action; copious amounts of gore will not dissuade the squeamish, for resonating at the story's center is the twinkling image of a celestial city. This first fantastic installment of the His Dark Materials trilogy propels readers along with horror and high adventure, a shattering tale that begins with a promise and delivers an entire universe. 1996, Knopf, $20.00.

Roger Sutton (Bulletin)
Pullman here takes an intriguing break from Victorian thrillers (see The Tiger in the Well, BCCB 10/90) and contemporary problem novels (see Broken Bridge, 4/92) with this fantasy, first in a trilogy, in which a young girl follows a big destiny, the nature of which is unknown-as yet-to her or us. In a world that parallels our own, Lyra is an orphaned ward of an Oxford college, where she overhears concerns about "Dust," "the Gobblers," and an "Aurora." That she isn't really an orphan becomes apparent fairly early on, as she discovers that her father, Lord Asriel, and her mother, Mrs. Coulter, are locked into some kind of strange cosmic battle that unfortunately includes the sacrifice of children in its progress. More precisely: each human being in this world, much like our own of perhaps a hundred years ago but with sometimes startling, sometimes subtle, differences, has a "d mon," an animal-familiar that helps and loves its human, and Mrs. Coulter-a scary descendant of Andersen's Snow Queen-is commissioning experiments in which children are separated from their d mons. Treachery, tricks, Gypsies, polar bears, witches, and photography all play a part in the ambitious story, and Pullman is particularly inventive in the way he blends not-quite science with not-quite magic. Although the book sometimes seems overly cerebral-Lyra seems more a pawn to the plot than a personality, for example-the faithful (and sometimes nasty, depending on their humans) d mons give it some heart; the scene in which Lyra finds a boy who has been separated from his d mon is wrenching. There's enough resolution in this book to give it unity and a satisfying, if rushed and abrupt, closure; at the same time, the prospect of the next book (which Pullman says will be set "in the universe we know") is enticing. R--Recommended. Reviewed from galleys (c) Copyright 1996, The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois. 1996, Knopf, [416p], $20.00. Grades 6-10.

Jan Lieberman (Children's Literature)
This is a complex fascinating fantasy, the first volume of his "Dark Materials Trilogy." The heroine is Lyra Belacqua who lives with the scholars of Jordan College. Headstrong and independent, she is caught in a web in which science and politics are entangled. Why are hideous experiments being performed on children? Alliances with Gyptians, witch clans, battles with trained mercenaries and armored bears keep the reader on edge. Warning: Don't begin this late in the evening. 1996, Knopf, $16.00 and $5.99. Ages 11 up.

Ann Oldenburg (ParentsGuide)
Philip Pullman authored The Golden Compass with a richness of detail and imagination that follows his heroic young Lyra from a carefree, yet secure, life at Jordan College to the ever-threatening frozen tundra in the north. With her unexpected departure from Jordon College, Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, begin an adventure-filled journey where the level of mystery, excitement and danger along the way is exceeded only by what is awaiting her. With the help of an excellent cast, the author narrated this recorded version of his acclaimed work that will capture the imagination of a world of adolescent readers and their parents alike. 1999, Listening Library Inc., $59.98. Ages 9 to 13.

Philip Pullman has created a stunning alternate universe peopled by those who seem familiarly human and by miraculous creatures: daemons, armored bears, witches. But now something sinister is abroad in this strangely modern, strangely archaic world, and 12-year-old Lyra Belacqua must try to discover the truth. Into this complex scenario marches Pullman and a remarkable group of readers, expanding the book in a way one might have thought impossible. This is an example of a full-cast recording at its zenith. The actors are well suited to their roles, Pullman proves himself to be a natural narrator, and the decision to remove extraneous text (he said; she said) allows for a more unaffected flow of the story. This is an incomparable treat for lovers of fantasy literature. S.G.
