i think this is totally stupid. Anyone ever heard of fahrenheit 911? I dont think anyone has the right to say you cant read this, you cant read that. Oh and i've read the Golden Compass and the other two books ( the amber spyglass is one of my all time favorites) anyone wanna know where i got the Golden Compass from? My school library in St. vincent Jr high. thats right, a catholic school. no one cared then, and they shouldnt care now. and when i read the book, in no way did i infere that the girl was trying to kill God. And i bet you that know one would if Pullman wasnt athiest. The golden compass is a very well written adventure book and i would recomend it to anyone.
oh, and how come they care about this book when the davinci code and angels and demons can still be easily found in any catholic school library? gah!
