    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 freethought 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 ffrf news day dayitems itenpedia wiki Philip_Prandomhouse features p.on Philip Pullman db name nm1099514

      Okaytke no mistake, this review contains spoilers Now, having read the first book 5 stars and the second book 3 stars I had some hope for this book But, this book was an excruciating head hammering look at an author making all the wrong moves 1 Lyra s sublimation to Will becomes utterly complete Hell, women are supposed to bend to men, aren t they Lyra quit taking a step without fearing it would cause Will to raise his eyebrow 2 Lyra s mother who had been SUCH a wonderfully evil character and fa [...]

      This is the way the world endsNot with a bang but a whimper T.S EliotWarning Contains spoilers.The Amber Spyglass is the final volume in His Dark Materials trilogy.I really enjoyed Northern Lights or The Golden Compass as it is titled in the US , the first volume of the trilogy Pullman introducted us to a fantastic world of great scope It was suspenseful, the presented world was enchanting, and Northern Lights was pregnant with interesting ideas and concepts that s why I chose to read all three.

      My entire review could be this Phillip Pullman s The Amber Spyglass is one of the poorest closing books of a trilogy ever written But I feel compelled to continue At one point, I actually stopped reading The Amber Spyglass, put it down and vowed not to finish, but I wanted to be able to slag off the book with authority, so finishing became a must And I even had a slight hope that Pullman could save his seriesI did finish, but it never got any better Mulefa Gallivespians Iorek Byrnison fixing the [...]

      I would not have read this book were it not for my friend Pat E who told me several years ago that it was one of the best books she had ever read, and also said it was the first children s book to have won England s prestigious Whitbread Prize for Literature So I read the whole series over the next couple years, and in this process discovered that one of my English department s medievalists said it was one of his favorite series Did I know, he asked, that Pullman was actually in conversation wit [...]

      i just decided to copy and paste a response i wrote regarding this book in one of the GR groups that is inexcusably lazy so sue me also, it is full of SPOILERS i think one of the most unique things about this book is the fact that one protagonist is a liar and the other is a murderer not only is that uncommon, particularly in YA lit, it is transgressive i like how the tools that help these two in their amazing adventures are ones that are normally displayed by villains and without their ruthless [...]

      If you haven t read the ENTIRE three books, please don t read any further I wouldn t want to spoil it for you because the ending is so endearing and ing, that I would HATE to take it away from you I absolutely fell in love with Lyra Didn t you She was the sister I wish I would have had growing up She was myself as I played with all of my brothers in the mudfields, she was the daughter I m sure every woman would yearn to have In my opinion, Philip Pullman was brilliant in his creation of this lit [...]

      I ve been putting this book off for almost four years I ve been truly terrified to read it for such a long time The first book, The Golden Compass, is one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read I adore it The second book is something else entirely I was horrified when I read it and truly disgusted with the unexpected direction the series took I did not want to read this one because I did not want my memories of the first book shattered completely So I finally picked it up and I approached i [...]

      When I was in high school, the local video arcade passed out fliers that that evening, after a 2 admission, you could play all the video games for free I and several of my friends went and enjoyed ourselves.And then suddenly they closed the doors, turned off all the games, and a preacher got up and proceeded to try to save us.True, we had already gotten our money s worth, and we we could have gotten up and left even though all of us wanted to but none of us had the nerve But we still felt deceiv [...]

      Oooooof.Too much Way too much.Pullman s series concludes like it started Good but nothing great And tiring Very The Amber Spyglass weighs as much as the other two books put togetherd then some Pullman pulls in still MORE main characters and still MORE beings and still MORE complications and still MORE unlikely, unbelievable turns of event It just got to be too much Between the witches and the angels and the cliff ghasts, the shadows, the specters, the ghosts, the Gallivespians, the ard [...]

      Coleridge in his criticism of Paradise Lost somewhere wrote that Milton was really of the Devil s party without realising it.I don t know about Milton, but I feel that what Coleridge wrote was true of Philip Pullman channelling Milton by means of his appearance to William Blake in poetic vision while in Felpham, all of course transmogrified into a children s book with armoured bears Even the Jungian Daemons, anima and animus to every character, have their counterparts in Blake, while the sexual [...]

      Conocen esa mezcla de felicidad y tristeza, ese dulceamargo, que solo los buenos libros pueden dejar Que aunque pase el tiempo, los sigues recordando, y quisieras que la historia continuara, aunque sabes que se desarrollo justo como deb a ser, as me hace sentir La Materia Oscura EL comienzo del final, la tan esperada guerra neoapocal ptica ha llegado, con sus terribles bandos, comandados por Lord Asriel y Metatron historia de la vida humana ha consistido en una lucha entre la sabidur a y la estu [...]

      This book was twisted The plot was very contrived and the characters have lost the remaining appeal that they had in the first 2 books The redemption of Mrs Coulter and Lord Asriel is utterly unconvincing Pullman makes an open mockery of God, whom he depicts as a weak, timid, helpless old being manipulated by a twisted, tryanicial angel No, Lyra and Wil don t kill God in the end, but Pullman does The story culminates in the predictable recreation of Adam and Eve s experience in the garden, with [...]

      I ve finally finished my reread of His Dark Materials before starting The Book of Dust It is literally decades since I read it and all I could remember was that I loved it, and the mulefa But of course there was so much to it than that And I cried my eyes out at the end.It also made me feel like I d love to chat to Philip Pullman about his metaphysical beliefs and the meaning of life Wonderful writing Wonderful story.

      I actually finished this book a couple weeks ago But life outside of , my general frustrations with the book, and the sense that reading it and thinking about it was contributing to an extended bought of grumpiness kept me from putting any thought or effort towards commenting on it here I suppose I should get it over with now I have to say that reading this book was at times overwhelmingly painful and my main motivation for actually finishing it was to be able to know for myself that there was n [...]

      This is the conclusion to the trilogy known as His Dark Materials I m glad I was told about the connection to Milton, but in this last volume there are hints enough for the reader in form of poems and quotes at the beginning of each chapter of William Blake, Emily Dickinson and John Milton.The Amber Spyglass is about Will further travelling through the worlds, now in the possession of the Subtle Knife how much I love that boy with his quiet courage and sense of duty and faithfulness Lyra has bee [...]

      This book, this 3rd and final volume, is an incredible conclusion to this outstanding series It has left me drained It has left me heartbroken But it has also left me in awe I have followed Lyra Belacqua Silvertongue every step of the way on her amazing quest, and I could do it all again right now This book is deserving of all the praise and awards it has received It truly is a masterpiece of fantasy literature Well done Philip Pullman, well done.

      This book was an experiment, and while there were moments that were clever and compelling and emotionally resonant, as a whole, the experiment failed That experiment was to take a piece of complex, religious poetry intended for adults Paradise Lost , turn it on its head, and make it into an anti religion coming of age allegory for children Even though Pullman ultimately failed to create a believable, subtle, or controlled narrative universe, even The Amber Spyglass did have its good moments.Pull [...]

      This fits within the scope of my review of the full series Book three was just a mess It s almost nonsensical as it strives against reason and its own narrative to bring the story to some kind of resolution The great betrayal prophesied Not really a betrayal at all Lyra being tempted Never happens Mary playing the role of the serpent Nope She just kind of stands around Oh, and the big plan to take war to heaven and kill God Has nothing to do with anything in the story really Though they do end u [...]

      I was surprised in looking over the reviews for the final book of the trilogy so much disappointment, anger, bitterness While I don t believe the book is flawless, I felt a lot of reviewers took out their frustrations on Pullman s politics or his decision to twist the happy ending rather than on the storytelling itself I thought, whatever problems you have with the book, the storytelling, magic, and emotional power of the book were absolutely riveting I rarely rush through books so quickly, but [...]

      In The Amber Spyglass Philip Pullman commits two serious authorial sins he gets preachy and he loses control of his story The result is book that, while excellent in places, is somewhat less enjoyable than the first two volumes of His Dark Materials.In The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife the narrative focused on Lyra and Will, the two main characters In this book the action jumps between their story and three or four others, which are at times peripheral and uninteresting The most egregious [...]

      This third and final installment of His Dark Materials was indeed dark, or at least much darker than the previous two While they felt like an adventure, this was slightly on the grim side, and not just because the kids got to spend some time in the land of the dead While it was quite good, it was probably my least favorite of the three.

      I am so glad I m done reading this series It s languished on my bookshelf for ages before I finally decided to read it I m sorry I did First, I hated how the first book was written so many references to things that weren t explained I felt like maybe I d missed a book or something, but no, this was the FIRST one I hated the main character, Lyra It just wasn t grabbing me I slogged on.The second book got better with the introduction of Will I liked him He seemed like a good person, with strong ch [...]

      Possible spoilers Fantastic ending to a brilliant trilogy, although I don t know how many times I have read these books this last one breaks my heart every time Will and Lyra s relationship blossoms so well over the course of the three books and I m almost tempted to stop reading before the end and try and trick myself into believing they lived happily ever after
