Rotagonista de La Materia Oscura deberá recorrer su peculiar Oxford para ayudar a la famosa bruja Yelena Pazhets Una fascinantes narración en una edición exuisita ue incluye grabados en blanco y negro. Everything means something Lyra said severely We just have to find out how to read itI finished His Dark Materials maybe better known as The Golden Compass trilogy this summer for the second time and finally turned to this short story seuel set in Lyra s home after her travels Oxford The book is small and packaged beautifully with wonderful engravings and a map of Lyra s Oxford It also includes a cruise brochure pages from Baedecker s guide to Oxford a post card from Mary Malone and an epigraph from that suggests that Oxford is a place where windows open up to other worlds The story is entitled Lyra s Oxford but the subtitle within is and on every page appears Lyra and the Birds which made me think that this story just might be the opening of this big book that he says he is writing The Book of Dust set in the Gold Compass worldThe pace of it is slow as if it were the beginning of a novel though things here also happen uickly finally and somewhat satisfyingly which is to say the writing is wonderful but not very much actually happensThe story begins with Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon Pantalaimon watching a flock of birds from which emerges someone s daemon The daemon tells Lyra that it needs to find a local alchemist and Lyra decides to help That happens and there is some reflection on the complex nature of meaningAs a story it may not warrant four stars but the package is cool and to go backin such an elegant way yay I still have to read the short story preuel he wrote Once Upon a Time in the North More


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 EarthIn 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 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 2002 Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matterMore

    ”Everything means something”I wondered how Lyra would come across after the events of the first trilogy and her being two years older As it happens she is still so easy to follow Pantalaimon too and his chosen form Nice
