Re: His Dark Material

Yep, it's the same book but a different title.
'The golden compass' is such a stupid title, though! The alethiometer isn't a compass! It's a truth teller that is shaped like a compass. It's also shaped like a pocket watch though, so why they chose to give the book such a false and misleading title in the states is beyond me. Same with Sorcerer's stone! :/

Re: His Dark Material

I don't know what the deal was with Sorceror's Stone, but I kind of get where they came from with The Golden Compass. A compass can be more than that thing that shows you the cardinal points; it can just mean 'a tool that guides'. I mean, if I had to think of a synonym for the alethiometer, 'compass' would be one of the first words that come to mind.

That and maybe knowing ahead of time of the titles of the future books, the change was made so there would be a common trend or something. Kind of like the Thing/Place/Person/Thing/Place/Person trend in the Potter books.

I dunno though. Either title fits the book methinks

Re: His Dark Material

To everyone who is interested in auditions:

Open Auditions for Lyra to be Held

Screen Daily is reporting that open auditions for the part of Lyra in the upcoming His Dark Materials film will be held. The producers say they are looking for a girl "who embodies Lyra's loyalty, bravery and mischievous nature" and say that she need not have any previous acting experience.

Auditions for the role will be taking place solely in England: at Cambridge, Oxford, Kendal and Exeter. The auditions will be held during the first two weeks of this April. A girl between the ages of 9 and 13 is being sought, allaying fears that Lyra's age would be raised for legal or moral reasons.

Re: His Dark Material

Northern lights is the best book. I read the trilogy years ago but had to read it again before I caught most of the subtle details and underlying plots.

As for the movie I hope it will be good. I actually am young enough and do live in England fairly close to Cambridge where the first audition is. I've never really wanted to act, but I suppose there's nothing to lose so hey, maybe I'll give it a go. And it may be a perfect excuse to get out of the orthodontist qppointment I have on the same day!

I took the quiz in Gualsa's post (I love your sig by the way, I'm glad he became a butterfly!) I got a wolf!

Re: His Dark Material

My best friend wanted me to read those books. She liked absoultely loved them. So last year for Christmas she bought them for me, but for some reason I have a really hard time finishing any of them. I just can't seem to keep it up, once I've set it down it's like all over with. I don't seem to be able to pick it up again.
