Northern Lights is the first novel in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials fantasy fiction series. This movie-tie-in edition is entitled The Golden Compass after the movie.

Summary of the Book

In an alternate universe, Lyra is an 11 year old student at Jordan College, Oxford. In her world, humans are accompanied by a dæmon which takes on the form of animals. Lyra’s dæmon, Pantalaimon is her sole companion after her parents’ death in an airship crash. She has been raised by the scholars and residents of the college, and her uncle, Lord Asriel, is a respectable man. Lyra fears and respects her uncle, but a conversation she overhears sends her on an adventure which will put her powers, both magical and mental, to the test. If she fails, all the children she knows will be used in deadly experiments to separate them from their dæmons.

Worst Quality - not even worth Rs.50

Beware, Worst quality book. Brown papers, thin cover and bad smell. This is the sort of book you get in platforms for Rs.50. This is 100% pirated book. I got from the seller "TrueComRetail". Request flipkart to avoid sending pirated books.

Worthy of Comparision with Harry Potter

I am a big Pottermaniac. Golden Compass is one of those books I just randomly picked out recently and was very impressed. The imagination of Philip Pullman and the brilliance of the whole new universe of mystery and magic created in this book is comparable to the Harry Potter books. A must read for ex-Pottermaniacs as the next big thing
