    It has already been 17 years?! Looking forward to the new books and time for a re-read.

    This is extremely exciting news that I wasn't aware of. His Dark Materials was a fantastic trilogy that truly surprised me by the depth contained in what was ostensibly a YA series. Also looking forward now to the BBC adaptation that I also didn't know about. While the movie had some nice effects and a couple good performances, I thought it was ultimately lacking.

    Ohh, I must not forget about this! I loved these books and that's where I saw an ad for Wheel of Time. I should read them again for this new book, I barely remember the plot. Together with Oathbringer, I have a lot of books to reread. :D

    Film for these books was very bad, I didn't like it at all. Hopefully series will be better. Any info when they start?

    The Golden Compass (as it is called in America) is one of my favorite books of all time, and Philip Pullman's books in general were a huge part of my adolescence. Sally Lockheart is high on my list of fantastic female protagonists.

    Sooo...I am excited. ^_^ :joy
