Just a warning for you readers out there- it's very anti-religion (anti-authority too, but mostly against churches, particurlarly Catholicism), so if you're easily offended, I'd steer clear. The author has stated himself that he wrote these books as the exact opposites of the Narnia series, which were heavily pro-Christian.
Though I'm a Christian, I actually enjoyed the books because they're well-written and quite imaginative. I look forward to seeing the movie, though I know it will probably be toned down and probably not as good as I pictured it :P
