The Golden Compass begins with Lyra and her daemon (her talking soul in animal form) hiding in the wardrobe of a renowned Oxford scholar. Readers may recognize this parallel to Lucys discovery of Narnia in C.S. Lewis ...
When I first heard of Pullman, someone described him as an "anti C.S. Lewis", and since then there has been much comment on that. In a way, it shows the continuing relevance and power of Lewis' writing - that someone would parody him like this. But I don't like it.
