The Golden Compass

I have elsewhere read of Pullman described as "a militant atheist." This article doesn't present him as such.

I wonder if it will be a commercial success, especially if many Roman Catholics or Evangelicals don't take their children because of the viewpoint represented.

I do take exception to the advertising which says it is "in the tradition of Narnia" when it is more of an anti-Narnia. But, I can't expect them to advertise, "If you loved Narnia, you'll hate our bizarro version."

What do you think? Have you read the book, or the series?

I would prefer to read the book and see the film before reaching a conclusion about the merits of The Golden Compass.

I haven't seen the film yet but have read all three books and loved them.
