Northern Lights

My son has just read this and passed it to me to reread. I can see why they called it The Golden Compass in the US and for the film, although I prefer the title Northern Lights. It seems more evocative to me, although maybe that's just because it was the first title I knew it by.

It was another easy read, although not so full of wish fulfilment as Kim Harrison's books. I do love being swept up into another world and I love the daemons. Who wouldn't want their own daemon? I think mine would be a cat - or I'd like to think so.

Now I have to find where I've put The Subtle Knife so I can read the follow up.
