A very interesting book about the Daemons. Extremely original, the first book of His Dark Materials.

This is the first book of the His Dark Materials Trilogy. It was also made into a movie by the same name. All-over I liked the book, but I have several complaints that made it a less enjoyable read. First is the obvious fascination the author had for cutting down the Church. I can understand making people inside the Church evil, but to have the whole institution itself evil is a bit unbelievable. The characters were interesting, but they weren’t realistic and often did things out of character. The plot was an interesting idea, but there weren’t many light points in the story; most of the book was depressing. Saying that, I thought it was an interesting book worth reading once, if only to say you did.

Can I admit something? At first, I thought this must be a formula-made paranormal fiction, because they made it into a movie, but really, it's not. I tried to hate it, but I got swept up in the immense awesummness of the story.
