First, why is my 9 year old looking so grown?? 😭 Second, he finished this graphic novel adaptation before school today and LOVED it! He‘s hasn‘t read the original books yet, but I love this GN gateway for middle grade readers.

Golden Compass Graphic Novel, Volume 1 | Philip Pullman, Staephane Melchior-Durand

Pickpick

I love Oubrerie‘s art (he did Marguerite Abouet‘s Aya series) & wasn‘t disappointed; the world of Lyra Belacqua really comes to life in this #graphicnovel adaptation. The story is so abridged, however, that it left me feeling somewhat cheated & wanting the complexity of Pullman‘s original. Therefore, it could be an introduction for young readers who might then choose to pick up the original. Or, for those who already know the story, a refresher.

Heideschrampf I did not know this existed! Straight onto the christmas list... 2y
Lindy @Heideschrampf Look for the complete edition: 3 graphic novel volumes in one. I neglected to mention that the story was adapted into French by Stéphane Melchior, then #translated back into English by Annie Eaton. 2y
Heideschrampf @Lindy well that sounds like it can only go wrong 😂 2y
Lindy @Heideschrampf Actually, the English translation is skillful. The translator may have consulted Pullman‘s original text. 2y

Northern Lights | Philip Pullman

The tv show made me curious again, and so I decided to re-read the books series after probably... 10 years? I think I was ten years old, and some parts scared me to death while others left me confused. I‘m close to the end of the first book, and I love the special connection between Lyra and Iorek.

LibrarianRyan I have just a few episodes to finish myself and had the same thoughts. But my nephew wants to borrow my copy so he will probably get to it first. 3y
BookwormM I will also be rereading this year and I have the latest Lyra book to read 3y
thewallflower0707 @LibrarianRyan how do you like the show? 3y

LibrarianRyan @thewallflower0707 I am liking it but I think its mainly because I am far enough away from reading the books that I am not yelling at the screen. Plus I have not started the book of Dust series so I assume the “new“ things are from those books. I think they have done a better job than the movie did. And I think I read that it already got a season two so YEAH. 3y
thewallflower0707 @LibrarianRyan my biggest issue with the show is that they really botched up the dæmons. They are not really on screen or important to the plot. I think they already wrapped up filming for season 2, and since it is the BBC I‘m hoping they will not cancel it abruptly. 3y
LibrarianRyan @thewallflower0707 I finished season one last night. And the ending!!!. Not what I remember from the book, (But I have not read the Subtile knife yet). (I have a problem getting sequels read). I agree. You don't see much of them. Then how they changed the lab and who was in the cage and the ceiling. I think it worked for the show but.... and the whole part with Coulter at the end. hummm. 3y

Any fans of the book series and tv show on here? I‘m on episode 5, and I really enjoyed watching them, however I feel like lots of the more gruesome details got lost in the adaption (e.g the missing fish in Episode 5). Moreover, the special relationship between dæmon and human is gone ?.
I want to read the book series again these holidays though. Haven‘t read them since my childhood.

Going to reread The Golden Compass and finally finish reading this trilogy. And I‘m also excited to watch the new show on HBO as well. Been hearing great things about it.

The Secret Common wealth is the peeerfect autumn/winter read. Full of cosy conspiracy and fantastical escapism. #philippullman #bookofdust #secretcommonwealth #amreading #fantasy

Hope you all got to catch the pilot episode tonight! I thought it was fabulous! I am now eagerly awaiting the next episode! I was also pleasantly surprised by the slightly creepy factor 😏 If you have watched it yet make sure that you do! Let me know what you think!

GingerAntics I‘m going to have to wait until the whole thing is released, so I can binge watch it during the preview period. 3y
Lidia I did watched it tonight! I‘m a big fan of the books and hope they do them justice. The first chapter was good. I really liked James McCavoy as Lord Asriel. 3y
emmaturi I really enjoyed it! Good choices in actors for each character! 3y

Laughterhp Should I wait until I‘ve read all the books to watch it? I‘ve only just recently read the 1st book and don‘t want to spoil things for me! 3y
Caroline2 I really enjoyed. I just wish the BBC would put the whole series on iplayer so I could binge the lot!! 😆 3y
LibrarianRyan I watched 1/2 and fell asleep. I loved what i saw so far. I am going to finish it later tonight. 3y
SassyBookworm @GingerAntics I definitely understand that I want to see e next episode sooo bad!!! 3y
SassyBookworm @Lidia yes I thought he played a fabulous Lord Asriel! I need to read the other books since I‘ll I‘ve read was The Golden Compass as a kid so I think a reread is definitely in order! 3y
SassyBookworm @emmaturi I agree the actors are fabulous! And I loved the cute little guy who plus Roger! 3y
SassyBookworm @Laughterhp I have only read the first book and it was just a small ways in so I think you‘ll be fine, I plan on rereading book 1 and actually reading the others in the series 3y
SassyBookworm @Caroline2 Amen to that! I love being able to binge watch stuff bc the anticipation til the next episode is killing me! 3y
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan my oldest wants to watch it so I‘ll get to rewatch it with her! I‘m so excited! 3y
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm Yeah. I love this book. I wonder if they will do a book a season? Even though from the first 30 minutes I saw things that were not in the original book that might be in the Book of dust. But I have not read that yet so I don't quite know. 3y
GingerAntics It looks really good...and it‘s not like I don‘t know what happens. lol 3y
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan I need to do a reread it‘s been soooo long ago when I read it. A book a season would be good but that means only 3 seasons 😔 3y
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm not if they include the book of dust series. And they could do what GoT did and go past the books. Not that that was the worlds best idea. 3y
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan ohhh I had no clue there was an extra book! I really need to get more in the know 🤦🏼‍♀️ 3y
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm Yes there is a new spin off series. The book of dust starts before Golden Compass, but is mostly about life after the original series (I think I have not read it yet, and the newest book is the Secret Commonwealth. 3y
