His Dark Materials: Including All Three Novels: Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass [9781841593425]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined. Lyra's search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

In The Subtle Knife she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds.

As Lyra learns the truth about her parents and her prophesied destiny, the two young people are caught up in a war against celestial powers that ranges across many worlds and leads to a thrilling conclusion in The Amber Spyglass.

The epic story Pullman tells is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armoured polar bears, magical devices, witches and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound re-imagining of Milton's Paradise Lost. An utterly entrancing blend of metaphysical speculation and bravura storytelling, His Dark Materials is a monumental and enduring achievement.

'Philip Pullman. Is he the best storyteller ever?' - Observer

'One of the supreme literary dreamers and magicians of our time.' - Guardian

'One of those books which one can hardly bear to close.' - Scotsman

'Remarkable writing: courageous and dangerous as the best art should be.' - The Times

'Once in a lifetime a children's author emerges who is so extraordinary that the imagination of generations is altered. Lewis Carroll, E. Nesbit, C. S. Lewis, and Tolkien were all of this cast. So too is Philip Pullman, whose Dark Materials trilogy will be devoured between eight and eighty. The most ambitious work since The Lord of the Rings, it is as intellectually thrilling as it is magnificently written.' - New Statesman
