Finished The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman last night. As I said in a previous post - a very complex and richly written world. I'm not (yet) getting the anti-religion vibe others have mentioned about Pullman's work - maybe that shows up more in the sequels. I do enjoy the alternate-universe aspects - and the panzerbjorns (don't know how to do the Nordic O here) are WAY cool! I've started the second book in the series The Subtle Knife - which for some reason is vaguely reminding me of Stephen King's Dark Tower world.
