I re-read the golden compass, remembering that it was a fun read, and I was sucked into the series.
It's a brilliantly fantastical journey through unlimited worlds of imagination.
I wasn't aware of the religious context of this series until I read it and I was pleasantly surprised and challenged by the complex views the author brought to the surface.
This story tells of an existence I wish was true.
A phenomenal way to get lost for a few hours, I highly recommend the entire trilogy : )
