The Golden Compass Questions

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