Has anyone read the trilogy by Philip Pullman called "His Dark Materials?" Hollywood has made a movie named "The Golden Compass" but I can't tell if it's based on the first book (GC) or all three. I watched a preview of the movie online last night. Nicole Kidman is the bad lady and Daniel Craig is Lord Asriel (sp?). The movie website is really cool, it made me a daemon based on 20 questions I answered. I'm all geeked out about this movie ... I even circled the day it's coming out (12/7/07) on my calendar.

Anyway, I love PP and he has written loads of good stuff other than the DM trilogy. He has some books for younger children ... (The Firework-Maker's Daughter) and tweens (Clockwork).
