    I gave up on it part way through wizard & glass. It bored me to tears.

    There was a long period between wizard & glass & the next book.When it finally came out I decided to give it another shot starting at book 1 again. I reached wizard & glass with a feeling of dread but hen I read it it seemed like a completely different book & I enjoyed it.

    Go figure.

    I was in the same boat as you though. I couldn't really get into it at the start but persistence seems to have paid off.

    The movie is getting some backlash from religious groups because it is apparently anti-religious. Though I haven't come across anything like that yet.

    the humourous thing is the person writing the article hasn't seen the movie or read the book.

    Thats because the books recieved a tidal wave of it when they were published. Understandable considering the writer was anti-organized religion ruling the world. Yet at the same time it was a very religious series.

    The unabridged audiobook for Golden Compass is going for $9.95 on iTunes. I've never read it, so I bought it just this morning so I could listen to it before the movie comes out.
