About the Author: Philip Pullman

In 1946, acclaimed author Philip Pullman was born in Norwich, England, into a Protestant family Although his beloved grandfather was an Anglican priest, Pullman became an atheist in his teenage years He graduated from Exeter College in Oxford with a degree in English, and spent 23 years as a teacher while working on publishing 13 books and numerous short stories Pullman has received many awards for his literature, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal for exceptional children s literature in 1996, and the Carnegie of Carnegies in 2006 He is most famous for his His Dark Materials trilogy, a series of young adult fantasy novels which feature free thought themes The novels cast organized religion as the series villain Pullman told The New York Times in 2000 When you look at what C.S Lewis is saying, his message is so anti life, so cruel, so unjust The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt At one point, the old professor says, It s all in Plato meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude, shabby, imperfect, second rate copy of something much better I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things, the absolute primacy of the material life, rather than the spiritual or the afterlife He argues for a republic of heaven here on Earth.In 2007, the first novel of the His Dark Materials trilogy was adopted into the motion picture The Golden Compass by New Line Cinema Many churches and Christian organizations, including the Catholic League, called for a boycott of the film due to the books atheist themes While the film was successful in Europe and moderately received in the United States, the other two books in the trilogy were not be adapted into film, possibly due to pressure from the Catholic Church When questioned about the anti church views in His Dark Materials, Pullman explains in an interview for Third Way UK It comes from history It comes from the record of the Inquisition, persecuting heretics and torturing Jews and all that sort of stuff and it comes from the other side, too, from the Protestants burning the Catholics It comes from the insensate pursuit of innocent and crazy old women, and from the Puritans in America burning and hanging the witches and it comes not only from the Christian church but also from the Taliban Every single religion that has a monotheistic god ends up by persecuting other people and killing them because they don t accept him Wherever you look in history, you find that It s still going on Feb 2002 Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matter.More

    Until recently, this series had somehow flown under my radar It wasn t until I saw the trailer for the upcoming The Golden Compass movie that I was introduced to Lyra s world The trailer made the movie look AMAZING, so naturally as I always do , I thought I MUST read this book His Dark Materials creates a beautiful, vibrant world with characters as deep as if you had known them your whole life The books themselves deal with heavy subjects N

    Day late and a dollar short with this one.My hope was to have read and reviewed His Dark Materials trilogy before the film adaptation of the first third, The Golden Compass, came out last Friday And I would have too if it weren t for that sheer enormity of suckiness that was the third book in the series The Amber Spyglass sigh But then, life doesn t actually work out perfectly for us as often as we d like Sometimes there are earthquakes that level

    In just under a month La Belle Sauvage The Book of Dust 1 will be released, so I thought I d do a summative review of my experience with this trilogy Here s what I thought of each book, I read them over a period of four years and my reviews are what I thought at the time they ve not been edited since Book 1 The Golden Compass 5 This novel is an absolute work of pure genius, and is in my top ten reads of all time Before I go into the depths of character a

    Could you imagine a story that weaves history, quantum physics, theology, cosmology, trepanning, shamanism, love and the seriousness of adolescence into a coherent narrative I could not Yet Phillip Pullman has done just that, and a worldThis wonderful trilogy will lead you along a most unlikely path through some of the biggest questions of life in philosophy, religion, history, science, and not least literature That it does so as a masterful, child accessible a

    The first sentence that came to my mind after finishing this book was anyone who would give this novel less than five stars has to be either a philistine, a charlatan, or a cynic To add to that a cynic grown so dull with the slop of the world that they have been rendered unable to see the raw charm of these characters Lyra and Will, and the amazing sad kind of beauty that comes with making the irreversible passage from childhood to adulthood Pullman is able to weave t

    So, this is a bind up of all three books in this series and it s a reread for me I first read these when I was very young maybe 11 12 and I remember absolutely loving them This still remains true to this day and they are excellent books the second time through too Also, being 10 years older now than when I first read it helped me to notice a lotof the subtle references to religion, souls, sex, body image and so on None of these were things I was even considering when I was y

    Great fantasy, amazing story I think of all three books, I loved the first one Northern Lights the most because it introduced me to this amazing world, and it felt the most wintry to me with its polar bears, snow and magic That being said, the two other books, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass , were really good as well, and especially the second book kept my interest peaked This is one of those series that is written for children on the surface, but that is highly relevant a

    Spoilers below I read the first two books when they came out my middle school years but got tired of waiting for the third However, when this whole controversy over The Golden Compass film adaptation was started by the Christian right, I decided it was time to read the series again I simply didn t remember Philip Pullman s message about God and the Church disturbing me as a regularly church going 12 year old Sure, it made me think about what a corrupt church could do, but it all seemed hy

    I don t guess you could call this the Gold Standard of classic fantasy literature, that probably goes to Harry Potter, but His Dark Materials soars in that same stratosphere It is so brilliantly conceived, so intricately constructed, and so well written that it leaves one in awe of Pulliam s achievement This trilogy is composed of three separately published volumes, Northern Lights The Golden Compass in North America 1995 , The Subtle Knife 1997 , and The Amber Spyglass 2000 A sequel, I don t gu
