Welcome to Fiction Friday!
This week we’re talking about ‘Northern Lights’ by Philip Pullman.
‘Northern Lights’ is probably at least vaguely familiar to you, because it was adapted to screen as ‘The Golden Compass’.
The story is a thrilling one, starring a young girl called Lyra, and her daemon (a kind of familiar that all humans naturally have in the story), Pantalaimon.
Full of exciting twists and turns, just the right amount of fantasy, mixed in with facts for you to learn, and enough danger to leave the reader begging for more, it’s no wonder why this book has had such success.
This book is definitely worth reading, and will transport you to the world within its pages. I would recommend it to all, especially if you enjoyed books such as ‘The Alchemyst’ and the series that followed by Michael Scott.
If you have read ‘Northern Lights’, plan to read it, or if this blogpost inspired you to give it a shot, do be sure to let me know what your thoughts are!
