golden compassAn exotic read, because in this world familiars exist, the goodness or evil of several major characters are ambiguous, and it doesn’t deny very adult themes. There’s homosexuality, murder, and lust (in a children’s book, mind you!)

Of course, religious authorities are tied up in knots again because another fiction writer invented another way of looking at the world… Creation is really a touchy subject.
