Golden Compass

I’m finally on board with the His Dark Materials series. The pending movie made me do it. I once posted a list of tings that annoyed me about popular fantasy which became the manifesto for my novel. I’ve only read the first book but The Golden Compass has been pretty good about avoiding these narrative ruts.

But, now having read the book I’m a little worried by some of the things I see in the trailer, which you can watch at their Official Site.

I had to modify the promotional wall paper though:

  2. Oh, and I left the 2nd book by my side of the bed. It’s ready for your reading play-zure.

  4. Where would we keep it?

  5. It could sleep in our parking space and I would ride it to work. And I would pet it and love it and name it George.

  8. I’m still reading Declare so if you ask Melmel nicely I’m sure she’ll let you borrow it.
    I’m home all day.

  9. There were some shots that look like an attempt to insert LOTR-style big battle scenes into the story.

  10. Yish, you can borrow. Just be sure it gets back to Mr. Milazzo. I want to be able to talk about the book without spoiling it for anyone.

  12. Oooo! Could people that you like occasionally borrow him if they would also pet him and love him and give him meaty snacks?
