His Dark Materials

His Dark Materials is a series by Philip Pullman. This series was published 1996 to 2000, but didn’t come into it’s fame until briefly before the movie was released in theaters in 2007. Parents were afraid to let children read them because they had begun to believe the books as unholy. After reviewing multiple theories of why this series was banned, I’ve come to find out that Religion had a lot to do with it. People disliked the series solely because it dealt with something they were unfamiliar with.
