Still haven't read any Pullman yet, but I'm digging this essay collection. Will probably make a run at His Dark Materials this year.

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!

3.5 stars - It had me gripped from the start, though the dark materials is one of my favourites from childhood. Malcolm is the hero of the story and is embroiled in a story of espionage, danger and secrets. The story is set in the past when Lyra, from his dark materials is only 6 months. I would most definitely read a part 2 to this story 👏. #bookofdust #phillippullman #bookworm #booknerd

In an atmosphere of suspicion, resentment and hostility, many poems are interrogated until they confess, and what they confess is usually worthless, as the results of torture always are: broken little scraps of information, platitudes, banalities. Never mind! The work has been done according to the instructions, and the result...is measured and recorded and tabulated in line with government targets; and this is the process we call education.

Been a while since I've used this! I've read a lot over the past few months - this is what my library hold list decided I was going to read next.

Philip Pullman discusses the importance of stories and language, why every right thinking person should be a feminist and why recommended reading ages are bad for readers, authors and books #edbookfest

batsy How cool! Sorry, what did he mean about recommended reading? 1y
Moray_Reads @batsy oops, sorry. That was inaccurate typing while walking! It's the idea that all children's books should have the appropriate ages of the readers printed on the covers. He's very much against it! 1y
batsy Oh, OK! Thank you :) I agree with him 👍🏽 1y
Moray_Reads @batsy me to. I think it can be helpful if similar age ranges are shelves together in shops but books definitely shouldn't be labelled. It all depends on the child and the book! 1y
