The Golden Compass 

Again, I just couldn’t care about any of the characters at all. Like really don’t care about any of them at all. I found Lyra interesting but I lost interest in much of the book as it was. 

Something about the characters just never clicked with me, I found it hard to understand Lyra and her motivations which were paper thin at best. Not to mention that I couldn’t care for any of them. 

And I was still more confused by the world as it was. Perhaps light epic fantasy isn’t for me at all, as I enjoy so few of them. And even then I prefer a fine touch of intrigue in them. And well, when it came to Pullman it just lacked something which will have made this enjoyable. 

Well, this just wasn’t to my taste or my expectations at all. I just cannot bring myself to care about this at all.

  1. Hmmm I read the book and I did too find it confusing. Like I read it for a class but I didn’t even write a review. It was hard to get hooked and had so many things go around :/ I get your point, I do get it.

    1. Well, that’s something you and I share. Maybe it’s a generation thing, since I was born post 2000 and a lot of those who enjoy this tends to be of an older decade.Thank you for leaving a comment.
