The Golden Compass: New Trailer and Conclusion

The Golden Compass is hitting our screens this December and has a new trailer which can be viewed here:

In other Compass news, director Chris Weitz has confirmed on his official blog that the final 3 chapters of the book will be removed from the final film and re-inserted into the very-likely sequel The Subtle Knife. Having not read the books myself, I've no idea if this is a good or a bad thing. However, if you remember back to Lord Of The Rings Peter Jackson decided to cut the Shelob sequence from The Two Towers for placement in Return Of The King. That wasn't such a bad idea and, from what I've heard, Weitz's cut is along the same lines.

Has anyone read these books? Are they worth picking up?
