I guess I'll have to read these books now

so my Golden Compass Daemon is:







I haven't actually read the books on which the film is based; I am a little too old I think. My trilogies were The White Mountain trilogy and, later, Asimov's Foundation trilogy. Well and Lord of the Rings, of course.

I bought the books a few years ago on the recommendation of a friend but this was when I was having trouble reading much of anything and since I hadn't read them the first time around they didn't have that aura of childhood mystery so I never got past the first few chapters of the first book. Maybe I should pick them up again. Because I need another book to be in the middle of. I do!

You are NOT too old
I didn't even hear about the series until my late twenties or early thirties and I was absolutely captivated. The books are fantastic. Read them.

Your daemon is beeeyoootiful.

I love her!
Do try to read the books again, they are actually really tough for kids to read and don't fully click until they are young adults.

It's best for gifted 8th graders or high functioning high school students.

They are super intricate.

considering the types of daemons I voluntarily adopt--or who adopt me, rather--I'd say they got mine right.

I'll have to read the books now.

I recommend the books, too. I was already quite old when I read them. And I don't read SF or fantasy anymore.

I'm not sure I'll go to the movie.
