Got treated to these today. Max Einstein came free 😱 as if I need more encouragement to get more books haha. Yay. My fiancé @Jackal121 has treated me to the dark materials by Philip Pullman for my birthday (in December haha) so I'm super excited 😁❤️📚 happy reading and weekend everyone.

Finished the audio & can‘t wait to start the next one. I love that Pullman never presents horrific events as grand adventures for plucky kids but shows the horror of the situation. Malcolm is a fantastic character & I adore him. My big problem in the book is Alice, who could be amazing if only she did anything apart from looking after the baby.
Michael Sheen‘s narration is an absolute delight - gripping & relentless & gentle, just perfect.

julesG You might just have sold this audiobook to me purely by telling me who's narrating it. 😁 1w
Kaddele Well, of course I picked it for very good philosophical and literary reas... It‘s MICHAEL SHEEN! 🤩🤩🤩 it‘s really worth it just for his narration. 😄 1w

I know I have to leave for my first class super early tomorrow morning and I have to teach until 9 pm so I should definitely go to bed soonish but ... well ... there are 3 hours left in the audio book and Michael Sheen‘s narration is so lush and alive and gorgeous that I can‘t force myself to stop now. Also sleep is overrated. As is being awake while teaching. Being a responsible adult sucks.

I initially started listening to this audiobook because there wasn‘t much on my library app that was enticing me. I am so glad I did! Michael Sheen‘s narration was insanely good and when the story finished it left me wanting more immediately. I don‘t know why it took me this long, but I can‘t wait to read more of Philip Pullman. I have His Dark Materials on hold and I can‘t wait! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

‪Been waiting for this book for like two years, did not expect it to weigh as much as my lardo cat. With the rate I read books lately, I should have it finished just in time for book 3. (I‘m not complaining.)

#bookhaul I had a day trip the other day, and got a chance to go to a barnes and noble. I do not have one near me. And I wish i could explore it more, but it was close to closing time. I didn't want to delay them on their closing chores.
Continuing my dark materials authors continuation. Now I have all the books!
As well as book 4 of the Peculiar series I have been wanting awhile

The Book of Dust | Philip Pullman
post image

It sat on my shelf for two years, but I'm finally diving in to #TheBookofDust! I am a huge #PhilipPullman fan so my expectations are fairly high.

P.S. I just re-read #AWrinkleinTime and...meh. I barely remembered it from 8th grade so I wanted to revisit it, as I know it is loved by many. I didn't hate it, but I expected more. I wanted certain ideas to be better fleshed out, and for it to be more climactic. I'll stick with #Pullman and #Rowling.

This is what happens when I open my email in the morning to find the latest email from Discworld Emporium. “Oh yeah, I should preorder the next two hardcover editions. And while I‘m at it, the two October releases I must put my grabby hands on immediately.”

Not a bad start to a Sunday! Happy weekend all.

I truly enjoyed the book & its narration by Michael Sheen. I didn't read far into The Golden Compass, because at the time that NOS was at that reading level, the content was not appropriate for him yet. We tabled it; I never returned. I may read the His Dark Materials series if I love the Book of Dust series.

Elements of La Belle Sauvage bring to mind Diane Setterfield's Once Upon a River, which I read in January and found even more captivating.

I also wanted to share a photo of the city I visited. The city's charm is its fog (or as people like to call it: the “Brazilian Silent Hill“) and it was fun to learn about the myths surrounding it. Legend has it that Jack the ripper was never found but actually fled to Paranapiacaba and hid there to the end of his days.

Thoroughly entertaining. While it fell short of the bar set by Pullman's original trilogy, His Dark Materials, still left me looking forward to more. A prequel revealing how Lyra (one of the great characters of lit) came to Jordan College, it also feels anticlimactic because we know Lyra will become the heroine in 10 yrs. Pullman peoples his book with new villains, mysterious characters, shadowy organizations, and some familiar faces. Bk#49

hgrimes I loved His Dark Materials and equally loved this book, it was beautiful. I read it last summer and couldn‘t put it down. I can‘t wait for the next one. 4mo

If you want a peaceful story about a journey on a river, do not read this book. If you want to read a prequel of a trilogy that provides a rich mythology of the forces at work to either protect/nurture or control/manipulate a child with the added bonus of epic canoe escapes by two brave heroes, read this book.

I loved this! I‘m so happy to return to Pullman‘s world and Lyra‘s. Even though this is a prequel and Lyra is just a baby, she and tiny Pan are central to the book. The main character Malcom is a brave and curious boy, and I love his tenacity.

I don‘t know where Pullman plans to take the next book, but I‘ll certainly be reading it!

This was the last book I finished during #24in48. #LitsyAtoZ for author P.
