    His Dark Materials is a trilogy of fantasy novels by Philip Pullman comprising Northern Lights (1995, published as The Golden Compass in North America), The Subtle Knife (1997) and The Amber Spyglass (2000). It follows the coming-of-age of two children, Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry, as they wander through a series of parallel universes against a backdrop of epic events. The three novels have won various awards, most notably The Amber Spyglass, the 2002 Whitbread Book of the Year prize, while the trilogy as a whole took third place in the BBC's Big Read poll in 2003.[1]

    The story involves fantasy elements such as witches and armoured polar bears, and alludes to a broad range of ideas from fields such as physics, philosophy, theology and spirituality. The trilogy functions in part as a retelling and inversion of John Milton's epic, Paradise Lost; with Pullman commending humanity for what Milton saw as its most tragic failing.[2] The series has drawn criticism from some religious individuals and groups due to its alleged negative portrayal of organized religion.

    Source(s): I have read and reread the trilogy, and never cease to be amazed and amused by them. The triology is an excllent read. ge

    2 Books:

    1. To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee Pulitzer for Fiction. It is a very simple story simply told, and is one of the greatest American books ever written period.

    2. Cold Mountain Charles Frazier National Book Award. It is a very good book about the Civil War and a man who is trying to get home to his sweetheart who is trying to survive the war. Very gripping story. Longer than Mockingbird.
