Read in March, 2006

In the first of these three novels we meet Lyra, a young girl living in a University, lacking discipline she roams the college itself, and the streets of Oxford. Accompanied everywhere by her daemon, Pantalaimon(Pan). For in this world everybody has a demon, an extension of themselves. Daemons take the form of animals, children’s can flutter and change from shape to shape, but as they grow they settle on a form. A form which reflects the personality of the individual.
