Which title do you prefer
Northern Lights. The original and better and more exotic title damnit
and gets much better cover art
I went for The Northern Lights, I love the books, but out of all the titles, that was the only one I thought was good.
Golden Compass is ok,but i like the Northern Lights better,plus its the original title.
The Golden Compass sounds too obvious. Northern Lights is better. (Also I suppose it's not really a compass, exactly)
Well it is a compass. Just points to something other than the north pole lol
and also has dials that you have to move to get it to give and answer - and does not rely on magnetics - - aside from that you could call it a compass, but its such a poor comparision
a compass doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a compass that we would usually associate the word with.
You can have a moral compass aswell. That doesn't point north, but works in the same manner. Compass is a word used for something that helps point you in the right direction. It's not bound by any physical existence.
I agree with Meteorain here. The compass idea is merely to suggest that it directs you to something. And in this case what is it? It directs you to the truth. That's the point of it. But I still prefer the title of The Northern Lights
yeah its probably called a compass cos it gives answers on what to do and stuff.anyway it looks like a compass as well.
I like The Golden Compass, (partially because that's what I first read it as) but also because it fits better with the titles of the rest of the trilogy. The Northern Lights is prettier, though...
Yeah look even at Jack Sparrow's compass... Even though it represents a compass you think of, it doesn't point to the north, but to what you most desire...
I like "The Northern Lights". It sounds better. I'm a huge fan of the books and I think it is bad that they named the movie "The Golden Compass" and not "The Northern Lights".
Also is sounds better with The Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber spyglass than
The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber spyglass.
Northern Lights sounds better
