The Golden Compass

The Golden Compass Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Are humans inherently good?
- Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?
- Is "Dust" good or bad? What does Lyra think? What do you think?
- Are you the master of your own destiny, or does fate guide your course?
- Is Lord Asriel a hero or a villain? Is this a trick question?
- Could Lyra have saved Roger? Why or why not?
- What kind of animal would your daemon be? Why?
- Do you like Lyra? Did you like her through out the whole book, or did she grow on you over time?
