"A fantastic read" is an understatement. The first time I read this book (about four years ago) I thought to myself "yeck is this moving slowly..." Then, after the first chapter I was in a trance: I felt I was a part of the novel and traversing through worlds with Lyra. The Golden Compass and the two that follow (The Subtle Knife being my favorite) are books suitable for all generations and for all moments in life.

This book is amazing. When I was on page 5, I became in love with it. Philip Pullman is an amazing writer.
