I was SOOO looking forward to The Golden Compass last week,only to be hugely let down by the film and the worst bit was I had recommended it to some other people before actually seeing it and now I feel really bad. Maybe it's better if you haven't read Northern Lights,but I would imagine it would be more confusing. Anyway,I was not impressed by the casting of Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter and the film skipped over so many of the plot essentials. So,I had to re-read the book,just to restore my faith in the story as one of the best books I've ever read. And now I realize that Lyra was probably about the only thing the filmmakers got right. Ah well,maybe the sequel will be better,but I'm not holding my breath!
