In the first book of what has become a world famous trilogy, the tough, likeable heroine, Lyra, is involved in a quest which will lead her into parallel universes; the one this book is set in is intriguingly different from our own. Pullman’s complex and ambitious tale is told with extraordinary panache and pace; his talent for dialogue means that this dramatic book is accessible to a wide audience. The trilogy has been adapted for the stage and as a TV series and this first book has been made into a film The Golden Compass.
