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 The Amber PDF \ 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 EarthIn 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 uestioned 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 Inuisition 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 Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matterMore.

    This is the way the world endsNot with a bang but a whimper TS EliotWarning Contains spoilers The Amber Spyglass is the final volume in His Dark Materials trilogyI 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 threeThe next one The Subtle Knife was laborious indeed Most of what made Northern Lights wonderful was dropped there was no world building in this volume the characters seemed stalled and the book was a chore It was a transitional piece so some of these things might be excused and I approached the final installment expecting a grand payoff The Amber Spyglass is no Return of The King It's the ugly baby that came out of Pullman's imagination and his hatred of religion The novels is such a tremendous let down that it's hard to decide where to start a list of its failingsLyra the cocky and bratty protagonist of Northern Lights disappears almost entirely Lyra from The Amber Spyglass is almost fullly submissive to Will Oh Will What shall we do? Will Oh Will Where is the girl who rescued children and planned it all on her own? Here Lyra doesn't seem to be able to do anything without depending on WillThe redemption of Mrs Coulter is totally unconvincing The Grand Evil Lady who was so great in Northern Lights suddenly out of the blue starts loving Lyra This is just so ridiculously uncharacteristic and unbelieveable The great villain is reduced to a mere puppet in Pullman's hands who seems to have forgotten how to hold the stringsNot that other characters are handled expertly Aside from Lyra who was reduced to a dependand sissy and Will the grand young adult fiction boy on a uest stereotype Pullman introduces and characters like the new race of Mulefa the bug like creatures He then goes on a tangent describing their culture which while interesting doesn't add much to the plotThe figure of Father Gomez who is sent by the Church to kill Lyra is just a cheap way of maintaing tension He never faces his victim and dies from the hand of a character we believed to be dead several hundred pages previously His sections are nothing but fillerThe theological uestions are never developed Pullman literally stated in the previous volume that every Church is evil without showing why He didn't show how Chuch uses religion to manipulate the consciences of people we are treated only to Pullman's version of the Church which is evil because the author told us it's evil Everyone associated with Church is EVIL at a cartoonish level Mother Theresa has evaporated from Pullman's cosmos and took all the good priests along with herThere's no conflict inside the Magisterium no good voices are drowned by the bad ones because everyone is bad All of these evils are dressed in the not at all veiled robes of Christianity especially the Catholic Church These evils are never really shown we're just told they are evil Oddly there are no evil Muslim priest or bomb throwing Buddhist monks In Pullman's world there is only one religion and it is THE BAD ONE As one of the characters says The Christian religion is a very powerful and convincing mistake that's allDoesn't sound very convincingCuriously the church seems to have little impact on Lyra's world Though Pullman wants to lay all of the evil of mankind on Christian religion and God he doesn't bother with providing plenty of evidence The Church does evil things but it doesn't get into the way of the Ard Polar Bears who live a godless existence or the clans of Witches who are into paganism Neither the Polar Bears nor the Witches seem to be particularly bothered by the Evil church The Witches seem to love their country and don't seem to be forced or isolated by the church They seem to love the north pole where they liveNow in a world dominated by an incredibly powerful religious organization which corrupts everything one would expect that everyone would be forced to follow the enforced religion and actively participate in its rituals masses etc Religion would be a part of the daily life as vital as a breath when you practice it and as deadly as lack of it when your faith is not strongIn Lyra's world NO ONE prays or goes to any sort of religious service In a world where religious domination is SAID TO BE thriving I'd expect it to be obvious If religion is the source of all the evil in the world I expected it to be omnipresent But it isn't Except Pullman said so So we have to believe him eh?Pullman goes on a specific tangent to discuss the very issue of God God is said not to be the original creator but the first of the angels to appear He portras him as some sort of terrorist who lied about his origins and holds the reins of Heaven in his strong hands However it is all told to us; we never see it played out When God makes an appearance he is shown to be a demented old angel which vanishes almost immediately We are never shown the man behind the curtain the malevolent presence who is the source of all trouble We are supposed to accept that no matter what THIS is TRUE and REAL Is God a sadist? We may never known we can only accept what Pullman tells us because he showes his truth down our throatsThe angels are shown as extremely ineffectual They can't really hurt anything which makes us think again How exactly did God who is just the first angel become so powerful? There are many uestions about the angels how did Baruch and Metatron became angels from men but no one else did? but Pullman never bothers with themThen there is the separate tangent of dr Mary Mallone a former nun who rejected the Church and all faith entirely because she ate some marzipan and kissed an Italian Whoa Maybe if she ate an Italian and kissed the marzipan I could understand the Church denouncing her the convent would grow slimmer and slimmer but it doesn't make much sense In fact this is some of the poorest reasoning I've read in a while Can't you believe in God practive your faith and enjoy the world at the same time? Millions of people do but Pullman apparently think you can't I could understand Mary uitting being a nun even uitting organized religion because of the imposed restraints but stopping believing in God because of marzipan? This is not a strawman argument it's a marzipanman argument and unfortunately it ain't sweetMary's story stirs some tension in Will and Lyra who suddenly realize that they're meant for each other at age of 12 eternal love is serious business mind you and the story morphs into a contrived retelling of The Fall of Man though I don't understand why Lyra is said to be the next Eve Of course she finds love with almost no build up she gives it up for the sake of the worlds hers and Will's I think she resists the temptation to continue their relationship to help everyone build the new Eden or the Republic of Heaven but it's a tenuous connection at best Not to mention that twelve year old children suddenly start talking like certain older men BlahThis is getting long so I'll wrap it up in Pullman fashion An angel shows up answers all of the uestions and the children return to their separate worlds promising that they will never forget each other and visit the same place in their worlds to remains as close as possible In Lyra's world generous foster parents magically turn up and she sets up to build a godless existence where people could enjoy themselves as if anything was stopping them before DOH I think that these books had great potential They could show children the dangers of corrupt individuals who use religion to influence and control people Unfortunately Pullman took it all away with his absolute lack of polemic and blatant one sideness and all we got were some puppets running around and spewing his personal sentiments in this incredibly boring and contrived slog The guy's obviously an imaginative author but his bigotry got the better of him here and I can only wish that Norhtern Lights was a standalone

    A 83% | Very Good Notes A sad but necessary ending; its exceptional last chapters may have seemed unconvincing if penned by a lesser writer

    Okayfirstmake 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 uit 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 father both find ultimate redemption in their love for Lyra Whoopee In fact EVERYBODY finds redemption in this novel Everybody The evilest creatures in existence the harpies in the lands of the dead are transformed by Lyra's music in about 3 pages and become her stalwart and forever allies Cripes 3 Lyra and Will gettin' it on Yeah hello? We knew from point one that Lyra and Will would eventually get busydid it have to be Sex That Saves the Universe? Cosmic Humping That Restores the Fabric of All Reality? Wait was I supposed to be taking LSD when I read that part? Damn dude you should have packaged a tab with the book4 More damn characters More damn MAIN characters Suddenly we've got Important People on Bugs Pullman continues to pull in so many disparate characters and plot threads that EVERYTHING is diluted into a big stinky morass 5 Theology aspect One of the reasons I was attracted to this series was because of Pullman's strongly anti religious takethe man wrote a blurb for Dawkins' God Delusion for freak's sake So umm why was this book sooooo religious? The dust? Well the dust is all knowing even of the future And there is indeed a land of the dead So we have afterlife and pre ordainment in an anti religious book? Sweet how does that work? Well it doesn't Angels are flying around and they're the good guys No wait they're the bad guys Well no matter I mean there IS a god but he didn't make all creation That was apparently maybe the dust Seems to me that if you're praying to dust rather than God it doesn't make any difference Religion is religion and this was a religious book 6 Easy ending OkayI saw most aspects of the ending coming from about 700 pages to go Couldn't Pullman throw me some surprises beyond How Damn Long He Took to Get Around To It?7 Easy ending take 2 Let's see Will and Lyra fight against God and All the Angels against the pull of their own daemons against not only all creation but all of creation on multiple universes they lose friends to bullets explosions souls ripped out and a myriad other ways as legions of people die to either protect them personally or what they stand for the two of them travel to the freakin' Lands of the Dead in order to remain together and they eventually get it on in all sorts of transcendant garden of eden ways restoring the entire multi verse with the Glory of Their Hot Sweaty Action and thenand thenand then an angel says Oh you guys can't stay together cuz a some bad stuff would happen thenAnd in ONE PAGE they say Jeepers that's too bad Any way around it?Angel says NopeAnd they don't even try It's just ta ta been good knowing you That's it Well trilogy it actually hasn't been so good knowing you

    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 incredibly fragile subtle knife? The knife breaking at all? Mrs Coulter continuing to live? The incredible coincidence of everyone meeting the same Cittàgazze kids? It was all too much and it only got worse as the book went on Thematically it was eually frustrating There has been so much talk about Pullman's anti religiosity but the most offensive part of The Amber Spyglass is Pullman's portrayal of women I wouldn't go so far as to say that Pullman is a misogynist but he does seem to have a poor understanding of womenThe five main women in His Dark Materials are a catalogue of feminine stereotypes Lyra as her name so clumsily suggests is a consummate liar who eventually becomes a moony eyed love sick teen subordinating herself to her lover Will Mrs Coulter is a manipulative femme fatale whose only hint of goodness is her inexplicable maternal instinct Mary Malone is the pure ex nun full of kindness and curiosity blessedly open to all new things Seraphina Pekkala the loyal witch is the classic heart of gold character usually she'd be a whore with a heart of gold but in a kids book witch with a heart of gold will do Then there is Mrs Parry Will's mom and her madness other women appear in the story but they're not as important as Will's mom There are few if any shades of gray in these women and as the book drew ever nearer the close I found myself hoping desperately for the women to do something unexpected My wish went unfulfilledMaddening frustrating and a great disappointment because of what it promised China Mieville got it right when he made his list of 50 books every good Marxist should read and said in book three 'The Amber Spyglass' something goes wrong It has excellent bits it is streets ahead of its competition but there's sentimentality a hesitation a formalism which lets us downOn second thought Mieville was too nice The Amber Spyglass should be avoided like a plate of raw chicken meat on a hot African day Read The Golden Compass and skip the rest Period

    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 with John Milton’s Paradise Lost as he wrote the series which came to be called His Dark Materials the title from Milton particularly in The Amber Spyglass? Nope I said I had had no idea so I paid some attention to that aspect of the book as I read it A little attention I say because I am no Milton scholar and how many are who would be reading it? Nor had I read than the sections of Paradise Lost I had read in the survey Brit lit course I had taken decades agoNow many years later I and my family have invested some 37 hours listening to the audio version CDs of His Dark Materials narrated by Pullman himself Last summer the first book The Golden Compass last fall the second in the series The Subtle Knife and now the third The Amber Spyglass Which I loved and then I find that one of the Goodreads reviewers I much respect hated this series and a little Goodreads argument through his highly critical review ensued So I at one point read his review and the subseuent hubbub mostly pushback on him from Pullman fans I went back and looked at his review to see if I might on reflection change my mind I did review the book and disagree with him as will happen here obviously I learned from that review but I still think it’s a great book And reread this review in November 2017 as I wait for my family copy of Pullman's fall 2017 release The Book of Dust that is part of this worldOne place to start in thinking of this book is that Pullman unlike CS Lewis another prominent fantasy writer is as he refers to himself “an atheist or agnostic atheist” Lewis a Christian once an outspoken atheist recounts his sudden epiphany of faith in Surprised by Joy This review is being written by an agnostic once raised in the Calvinist Dutch Christian Reformed Church I not only know that tradition but actually taught in Christian schools even taught classes on the Bible in them for a couple years I say that not to establish credibility on theologicalreligious issues Pullman explores here but because sometimes you read a book through your life “subjectively” than you might read other books I am pretty familiar with some of the territory Pullman treads Theological issues in a children’s book? Well this children’s book thing that’s marketing according to Pullman He intended to have adults—all ages—read this trilogy too And we should and we do Since in many ways he is commenting on Christianspiritual traditions as they are evident in literature Pullman wants to be in conversation with people who have read John Milton’s Paradise Lost andor C S Lewis’s Narnia Chronicles two of the best known epics in the history of English literature His Dark Materials is also an epic novel series but it is like much literature talking in various ways to the authors whose literature that it is built on You don’t need to have read those works for real but it doesn’t hurt eitherIn this case Pullman has written a version of Paradise Lost an inversion of the central arc of that tale Milton seemed to claim in keeping with the Calvinist tradition that the single terrible shaping moment in human history was the invention of the myth of “original sin”—a sexual sin—of Adam and Eve Satan an angel who fell from Heaven engineers this act In Amber Spyglass Pullman has Mary “tempt” Lyra through her story of falling in love Lyra “gives in” to this temptation as she realizes she loves Will though the American publisher amazingly cut some of the details of Lyra’s physical responses to being with WillPullman thinks the Church got it wrong from the beginning and throughout history in obsessively focusing on sexuality as “sinful” To split the body from the soul as he suggests Christianity does is for Pullman a horrible horrible mistake Materiality is a good thing Pullman says; the Earth should not be seen as a temporary place to wait until you get to the really good place Heaven but a place where we should fully existentially engage “Dæmons” are a cool aspect of this story sort of spirit companions usually in the shape of animals or birds and all humans have them like souls and when you are young they can shift It's a kind of identity conceit as identity in youth is in flux in construction As Pullman sees it The Church wants to separate you from your individualized; think of it as a personal relationship to the spiritual realm or God dæmon metaphorically and this is a horrible thing in Pullman’s view Pullman also thinks the Church—and specifically the Roman Catholic Church though almost all Christian theology is pretty consistent—in deciding their binary view of good and evil is the “right” one is narrow and simplistic His view—in part supported by contemporary physics—is that there are multiple spiritual worlds and traditions all of which should be supported and celebrated Pullman favors diversity of all kinds—spiritual cultural biological We are different and interdependent or we expire as a human race His key central concept for a deeper relationship to the universe is “dust” which would seem to be a synonym for consciousness or wisdom though it is potentially also visible in the natural world with the right attitude andor a Steam Punkish instrument such as is the Amber Spyglass Instead of Christianity's idea of One All Powerful God Pullman flips that script to show us the limitation of that view through the specter of The Authority who is frail weak sniveling small minded associated with a bad group from the Church called The Magisterium who wants to control your minds and souls and bodies Ultimately the series is about growing up in the face of an oppressive adult religious soul killing authority We need connection to the natural world than Christianity seems to have fostered Pullman insists And we need joy and a spirit of adventure and discovery and imagination than the Church would seem to have given us We need to stop thinking our bodies and the material world are somehow just merely badSo is Pullman’s view anti Christian or anti spiritual? I don’t think so not really He’s about expanding spiritual horizons rather than getting rid of them And he knows how to have fun in this rollicking adventure And he loves Milton too though he disagrees with him He just prefers William Blake’s complex cosmology The epigraphs before every chapter are wonderful perfect a guide to the argument that is coiled deeply in his story The former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams endorsed the series calling the books instructive saying they are in fact about the death of a false God and the upholding of true Christian values Williams even went so far as to say that Pullman’s series should be taught in schools Fundamentalists needless to say do not agree But the imagination is key to spiritual health for Pullman He does not think most religions value imaginationIn this final volume Lyra and Will travel to the World of the Dead to visit Roger and Will’s father which is maybe the single most powerful seuence of the whole series Along the way assumptions about the good or evil of individual characters of the book are uestioned Is Mrs Coulter Lyra’s mother evil? Is Lord Asriel good? What are the limitations of such categories? Lyra is a liar which is a good thing in some situations; fiction is a wonderful and useful adaptive strategy in the world but lies or false stories can also be hurtful Will is a good guy but he also kills people The Magisterium has sent Father Gomez to kill Lyra and Will; he seems closer to a completely bad guy than almost anyone in this tale but even he claims to want the best for kids The former nun and physicist Mary Malone is a pretty good person a guide for Will and Lyra in the absence of The Magisterum Iorok Byrnison the flying ard bear who has special capabilities with metal working once a captive drunk is a great and mostly good character I prefer the sheer imaginative joy of the first volume The Golden Compass with its strong girl character Lyra; she shares the stage with boy Will in the later two books The last book is less a children’s book than the first and it’s serious a little less fun But the last book is powerful and often moving Who wouldn’t want to have one final talk with those we love who have died? The plot in this last book sort of rambles slowly along contemplative and reflective as it intends to be After being primarily an adventure story The Amber Spyglass slows down and helps resolve all the central issues But I still truly loved it I maybe especially loved it because I heard Pullman's sweet and loving and gentle voice on tape shape the narration as well as all the wonderful characters read by great actors so well actedPullman also has a bone to pick with C S Lewis whose fantasy children’s series The Narnia Chronicles I grew up loving Pullman told The New York Times in 2000 “When you look at what CS 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” I loved growing up in the bosom of a Calvinist church reading The Narnia Chronicles and I don't recall all the harshness to which Pullman refers but I read it when I was steeped in that theology So he may have a point therePullman argues finally for embracing a “republic of heaven” here on Earth This is Blake and not Milton talking through Pullman advocating a pluralistic way of life and not a monotheistic religion Be God where you are Pullman says Pullman’s view is closer to Buddhism and the I Ching and existentialist Christianity think Kierkegaard Renounce the One or False God he says and instead Be God which as I see it is one interpretation of what Christianity is saying a Christian ought to become No guru no teacher as Van Morrison sings In the end Lyra having lost her ability to read the alethiometer intuitively decides to return to Oxford to study alethiometry which might just be another word for how Pullman sees fantasy as the narrative exploration of multiple worlds and dimensions and truths In the end Lyra and her dæmon Pantalaimon who has taken the permanent form of a pine marten resolve to build the republic of Heaven on Earth In the light of the ongoing destruction of the planet this is a hopeful vision of how we should be living the spiritual life honoring the environment

    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 uniue 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 abilities to lie and to kill they wouldn't have survived to put these abilities in the hands of the protagonists is one way of showing that despite having negative attributes a person can still be good and still be heroic the characters are as complex as real people in that they are not all good and in many ways both the ability to lie and the ability to kill come back to haunt both children particularly the latter they don't just get a free pass by the author but nor are their flaws portrayed in a black and white way many children lie many people in the world have killed but doing either does not make them automatically villains i like that as well as far as the author's atheism goes it doesn't bother me and i think the series is uite separate from his point of view the God that is destroyed is not actually God he is a despot angel gone to seed an imposter i actually found the book to be exceedingly spiritual and very much connected to the ideas of love for humanity love for nature even love for spirituality in its own way now obviously pullman is a curmudgeonly atheistbut i don't see those views shoved down readers' throats during the series what i see is an ability to use ideas of 'angels' and 'heaven' without sentiment and to even subvert Christian paradigmswithout actually saying 'There Is No God or Heaven' that may be implied but i think it can be argued that the opposite is also impliedthat there may be a God and a Heaven that is above all of these angel hierarchies all of the warfare as a God lover myself i would hesitate to call myself 'Christian' i am always on the look out for sneaky nihilistic anti spirituality tracts those kinds of things annoy me just as much as the display of judgmental religious rhetoric despite the author's personal perspective i didn't notice that in this series and i was looking for it angels warring and a False God Angel to me do not amount to a renunciation of faith if anything it illustrates a critical stance towards current organized religion i can deal with that it is not all or nothing or black white it is a grey scale and as i've mentioned overall i found the novel to be deeply spiritual pullman may be a curmudgeonly atheist; the morality of the book itself is not personally i thought the Chronicles of Narnia one of my favorite series was far overt in its religious teachings than Golden Compass was in its 'uestion what you have been taught' lessons Chronicles was a wonderful adventure AND a clear religious allegory Golden Compass is a wonderful adventure AND a lesson in not blindly following faith with the ultimate lesson that a person can still find their own personal way to faith spirituality i think that is a good lesson for kids for everyone

    George wake up Ungh what time is it? I think about four am You were having a nightmare Mmmn Hey you're shaking Come over here It's alright Do you want to tell me about it? Ann Coulter and Satan jump into the void and pull him down with them The evil archangel I'm sorry? Ah it doesn't make much sense does it? But it did in the dream It was even noble and tragic I think What else happened? Well I know I shouldn't have stayed up reading that physics book There was something about dark matter and angels I think angels were dark matter? But they weren't dark when you looked at them in the right way I built a sort of telescope and I could see them You should have come to bed with me Remember that next time I will And ah let me see God lived in a Calabi Yau manifold A what? One of those twisty six dimensional shapes that string theorists like I showed you a picture right? Oh yes now I know what you mean So God's in his whatever and all is well with the world? No he's tired and he has some kind of accident That was a good thing though You're still not making any sense I know I know And they can't ever see each other again They're in different branes That was so sad Different brains? Branes B R A N E S You know parallel universes floating in multi dimensional space Anyway he has to return to his brane and he's lost her forever George try to go back to sleep We'll be so tired tomorrow I just want to write this down before I forget it It was really good I think I could turn it into a book Tomorrow George Okay it'll wait until the morning And you know what? What? I'm so glad we're in the same space time continuum Oh George that's the most romantic thing anyone's ever said to me Heh I thought you'd like it Goodnight sweetheart Goodnight George Mm Mm

    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 andlasting 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 little girl Her flaws were her strength just as much as her strengths were her salvation And when you take her inuisitive innocence and throw in Will’s brave maturitytogether the two of them are almost too much to bear I was heady with adoration for the two of them combined I’m sure some would say they were too perfect together too sappy too trite But my cynicism runs deep and my heart was still touched Maybe it’s because I’m a girl or because my heart still remembers the depth of that first love The absoluteness of it My heart remembers “Going to China” haa haa and it longs to visit again Will was the boy every girl wants to fall in love with Loyal strong clever honest sweet and faithful I hated him for agreeing to close every single window except one but loved him for his dedication to do what’s “right” I wanted to shake him and tell him that when he gets older he will realize that one window wouldn’t have mattered – that what he was at Lyra’s side was worth one silly little window in the fabric of the worlds But of course he wouldn’t listen to me because he is young and doesn’t know how rare True Love is So I sighed and cried and watched them felt them split forever And I agonized over whether they would ever figure out how to Astral Project into eachother's lives And if the one would wait for the other when they died so that they could walk out the window they created hand in hand I could literally picture them sitting there on that bench for an hour each year aching for eachother once again SighI liked how Mrs Coulter was deep enough to be both intrinsically evil and love Lyra with a blindly maternal love in the end I liked how the Master at Jordon and John Faa were father figures in their own ways I liked little Roger’s complete faith and how Iorek’s devotion was tempered with a knowledge that was higher than either of the children’s I did find Mary Malone unbearably boring and found myself wishing away any chapter having to deal with her and her mulefa Get back to the real story of Lyra and Will I could have done without her entire story lineAnd of course there was Pantalaimon How much do we all wish we had a dæmon that we could see touch talk to rely on? How much fun would it be to have a morphing little partner in everything we do? Ahhh was a fun concept to explore and probably the very secret to HDM’s success Pullman’s descriptions of the different dæmon’s throughout each book were descriptive imaginative and comical All in all an excellent book I wish I would have read it slower so that I could have enjoyed Lyra and Will's company a little longer

    “All the history of human life has been a struggle between wisdom and stupidity” “I stopped believing there was a power of good and a power of evil that were outside us And I came to believe that good and evil are names for what people do not for what they are” “I will love you forever; whatever happens Till I die and after I die and when I find my way out of the land of the dead I’ll drift about forever all my atoms till I find you again I’ll be looking for you every moment every single moment And when we do find each other again we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart Every atom of me and every atom of you We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams And when they use our atoms to make new lives they won’t just be able to take one they’ll have to take two one of you and one of me we’ll be joined so tight”
