His Dark Materials: The Complete Trilogy
His Dark Materials: The Complete Trilogy | Philip Pullman
Set against the dreaming spires of Jordan College and the dangerous wilderness of the frozen north, Philip Pullmans His Dark Materials trilogy offers an intoxicating blend of imagination, science, theology and adventure. This special collection features all three titles in the award-winning trilogy: Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. Northern Lights Lyra Belacqua lives half-wild and carefree among the scholars of Jordan College, with her daemon familiar always by her side. But the arrival of her fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armoured bears. The Subtle Knife Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted otherworld Cittgazze, where soul-eating Spectres stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. But she is not without allies: twelve-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm. On a perilous journey from world to world, Lyra and Will uncover a deadly secret: an object of extraordinary and devastating power. And with every step, they move closer to an even greater threat and the shattering truth of their own destiny. The Amber Spyglass Will and Lyra, whose fates are bound together by powers beyond their own worlds, have been violently separated. But they must find each other, for ahead of them lies the greatest war that has ever been and a journey to a dark place from which no one has ever returned . . .

I read this book Jan 3-5, 2020 & gave it 5 ⭐️ on Good Reads. This was a reread for me. I‘d first read this back around 1997/1998 for a college course on children‘s lit so it was neat to see my post-it notes in the book. That said I was worried about rereading this book and whether it‘s hold up to my initial love it but it certainly did & I will be starting book #2 ASAP.

This was a #reread for me, as I originally fell in love with the books when they were released - and I'm still in love after all those years. Fantastic characters, a well thought through story, and even when you start to sense the wider scheme of things, you still have no clue how it will end.

Any fans of the book series and tv show on here? I‘m on episode 5, and I really enjoyed watching them, however I feel like lots of the more gruesome details got lost in the adaption (e.g the missing fish in Episode 5). Moreover, the special relationship between dæmon and human is gone ?.
I want to read the book series again these holidays though. Haven‘t read them since my childhood.

Watching the first episode on HBO tonight. I never really got into the original book series (I think I read the first two books, maybe), but the casting of the show is so good I can‘t resist!

wanderinglynn Like you, I never really got into the books either (I think I read 1.5), but the casting & trailer looked intriguing. I‘ll be interested to hear what you think. 3mo
JacqMac I didn‘t get into the books either, but I‘m recording it. It looks good. We shall see.... 3mo
Kimberlone @wanderinglynn @JacqMac enjoyed the first episode and excited to see how the rest of the show develops. Can‘t wait to see Lin Manuel Miranda especially! I have high hopes since it is a joint BBC/HBO production. I can‘t really get into books about children now that I‘m an adult but I don‘t have a problem with movies/shows centered on children. 3mo

Extremely imaginative, well-paced, detailed, carefully-developed characters, and a great “magic system” (not quite what it was, but close enough). I really enjoyed this trilogy, even if the author‘s simplistic understanding and impressions of religion (and implied disdain of it) in general left me kind of rolling my eyes.

Book #48: His Dark Materials has quickly become one of my favorite stories of all time. The series is absolutely enthralling, not letting me put it down for a moment. And it is one of the few series I have returned to time and time again. The story can be considered a cross between The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, where the world...

I am now listening to it on audible and loving it. I think I may be right in thinking it‘s P Pullman himself reading it with other characters. Maybe try it on audio book 😁 7mo

I was finally able to get this gorgeous omnibus for a really great price. The Golden Compass was the first book to start my bookish side really out. It came out July 1995 and I remember finding it at the library and at home it was a super hot day so I laid on my bed and just read the whole day. It was the first book I couldn‘t put down. I finished that day and I couldn‘t wait for the next one. The first series I became obsessed with.

Through December and till now, I have been listening to the full cast audios of these three books, and it has been delightful! I love how Pullman can write a children‘s book in a way that doesn‘t feel “childish”. Pullman expects something from his readers, and in return he gives them a beautifully written story with wonderful characters 👌

TrishB When I‘ve seen him talk about them he never calls them children‘s books - and you can tell! Great books ❤️ 12mo

Spent the last two weeks revisiting one of my favorite trilogies from childhood. Happy to report I still love it! There is some heavy stuff in here, and experiencing it as an adult was so different than when I was 11 and 12! I am really looking forward to the new tv adaptation and hoping they do these brilliant characters, worlds, and storylines justice. A must-read for anyone who likes #fantasy and sci-fi!

His Dark Materials, without a doubt!! It's an mazing story! My teacher in elementary school read the first one (Golden Compass) to the whole class and we went to the movie adaptation after that, as that was the same year. It was a great experience, seeing the story come to life. Great books, I really enjoyed them

What a delightful story from start to finish. Sure I find the characterisation of Asriel to be questionable, flip flopping on occasion, but the cast as a whole is absolutely wonderful. Really deep and rich in its storytelling, its easy to lose hours to this phenom of a book.

Pullman talks about magic in this article, which is also about an exhibition about human beliefs, superstition, and magic. I love how he says poetry is a kind of enchantment. Link: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/sep/01/the-limits-of-reason-philip-pullma...
