About the Author: Philip Pullman

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

    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 and plot, let me start by saying this book is up there with other fantasy hard hitters by this I mean books like The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia the books that define the genre This is high praise indeed, and this novel is worthy of it The protago

    I don t love the Beatles Ducks as he is castigated by the seething masses I also don t love green vegetables, punches to the face, or going to the dentist, though I don t think those revelatory disclosures will elicit much in the way of rage fueled attempts to slit my throat with the jagged edge of a broken CD compact disc, kiddos look it up So, why risk a severed jugular on the day before I m going to stuff mys

    the golden compass trilogy seems like a natural progression in christian literature yes, it is christian literature, the same way the chronicles of narnia are aslan is only a lion when the reader is about 10 or so in the united states after a point, he unrepentantly becomes jesus and the four children are like, the gospels or something and the story is somewhat ruined then, because as an adult, you can t just shoehorn jesus int

    I enjoyed the premise and theme of the book Pullman created well thought out and memorable characters It was a little too technical for me in regard to the depths of fantasy, i.e I had to go back and look up the meaning of some of the made up words in the book to stay focused on what was actually happening But great imagery I m not sure if I will read book 2 or 3 of the series yet thoughts

    9 8 17 1 I cleared my rating If that doesn t sufficiently refute the claim that I just wanted to give THE GOLDEN COMPASS 1.0 star, then you re irrational, and further discussion is pointless 2 I am a BOOK REVIEW BLOGGER That s what I do If you want to make cracks about being a trophy wife, go right ahead, but to insinuate that I would skim a book to have the minimum knowledge required to give the appearance of having read it so that I can give it a bad review
