I would have to say the Golden Compass series, it is much better than harry potter , although it is not in quite the same mold, but luckily it sounds as if they are making it into a movie.

Yeah, I would suggest reading that series, especially if you are into the fantasy genre of books.

Sci-fi is doing a miniseries in December based on these books. I posted something recently about it. the trailer's on sci-fi's website and it looks pretty cool. I'm kinda surprised a movie/tv miniseries has never been done before. Anyway, this looks to be pretty cool...

I'm opposed to books being turned into movies in principal - howeva...

The Golden Compass (as you americans insist of calling the first book in the Dark Materials saga...) or Northern Lights to give it it's correct title - made a very fine play so It might just work as a movie, but lets face it I doubt that the USA is ready to send it's children to a movie franchise that advocates underage teenage sex and the murder of God. Pullmans other books - the Sally Lockheart series - would make fine period/detective drama.

Did someone say that sci-fi was turning V for vendetta into a movie? Please provide proof!!! Of all Moores work this is perhaps the one that would actually work best as TV/movie drama as it has a clear mostly linear narrative and is largely character based. I'd like to see it done well, but dread to think what a mess it would be done poorly. ("Whadaya mean we dont get to see the heros face? Whadaya mean he's not a HERO?) It could get very bad.

Only the first, Northern Lights, was any good.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: A fitting (and very brave as an author ) example of young passion, and lets not forget the Murder of God...

The 1st book is the strongest, but I'd never agree that its the only good one!

Anyway - waaaay off topic!

Not sure about 'brave' really; it's not as if the church would try to kill him for it, in fact they were no more vitriolic than Gene Siskel would be as a matter of course. Salman Rushdie certainly was brave though!

I think america would accept them as movies, I mean there's been movies about little kids possesed by the devil and was very popular, so I don't think that's a problem. I don't think they would make the movie for a younger age group, most likely 13 and up. So why did they change the title for the U.S., I've only heard the series called the dark materials, and the book called the Golden Compass, never the Northern Lights.
