The Golden Compass

I liked the first book so much I finished the rest of the series.  All-in-all, I liked the whole series.  Lots of action, lots of drama. The only thing I didn’t like was that the storylines started splitting from the second book onwards.  I think at one point, you had to track 6 or 7 different plot lines.  They eventually all merged and overlapped here and there but it felt a little too fractured.  And the series got progressively more religious, which didn’t bother me too much but I could see it being a touchy subject for some people.

Random: My favorite comment from Sindy… driving back from dinner at one of her favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurants, Sindy points out some of her favorite restaurants along the way.  She then says, "I love Dick’s" as we pass by "Dick’s Drive-in" (a hamburger joint).  It tops my "I don’t want to ride the S.L.U.T." joke about the South Lake Union Transit line.  =)
