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 Earth.In 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 questioned 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 Inquisition, 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 matter.More

    A 83% Very Good Notes A sad but necessary ending its exceptional last chapters may have seemed unconvincing if penned by a lesser writer.

    This is the way the world endsNot with a bang but a whimper. T.S EliotWarning Contains spoilers The Amber Spyglass is the final volume in His Dark Materials trilogy.I really enjoyed Northern Lights or The Golden Compass as it is titled in the US , the first volume of the trilogy Pullman introducted us to a fantastic world of great scope It was suspenseful, the presented world was enchanting, and Northern Lights was pregnant with interesting ideas and concepts that s why I chose to read all three.The next one, The Subtle Knife was laborious indeed Most of what made Northern Lights wonderful was dropped there was no world building in this volume, the characters seemed stalled and the book was a chore It was a transitional piece so some of these things might be excused, and I approached the final installment expecting a grand payoff The Amber Spyglass is no Return of The King It s the ugly baby that came out of Pullman s imagination and his hatred of religion The novels is such a tremendous let down that it s hard to decide where to start a list of its failings.Lyra, the cocky and bratty protagonist of Northern Lights disappears almost entirely Lyra from The Amber Spyglass...

    Okay.firstmake no mistake, this review contains spoilers Now, having read the first book 5 stars and the second book 3 stars I had some hope for this book But, this book was an excruciating head hammering look at an author making all the wrong moves 1 Lyra s sublimation to Will becomes utterly complete Hell, women are supposed to bend to men, aren t they Lyra quit taking a step without fearing it would cause Will to raise his eyebrow 2 Lyra s mother who had been SUCH a wonderfully evil character and father both find ultimate redemption in their love for Lyra Whoopee In fact, EVERYBODY finds redemption in this novel Everybody The evilest creatures in existence, the harpies in the lands of the dead, are transformed by Lyra s music in about 3 pages, and become her stalwart and forever allies Cripes 3 Lyra and Will gettin it on Yeah, hello We knew from point one that Lyra and Will would eventually get busydid it have to be Sex That Saves the Universe Cosmic Humping That Restores the Fabric of All Reality Wait, was I supposed to be taking LSD when I read that part Damn, dude, you should have packaged a tab with t...

    My entire review could be this Phillip Pullman s The Amber Spyglass is one of the poorest closing books of a trilogy ever written But I feel compelled to continue At one point, I actually stopped reading The Amber Spyglass, put it down and vowed not to finish, but I wanted to be able to slag off the book with authority, so finishing became a must And I even had a slight hope that Pullman could save his seriesI did finish, but it never got any better Mulefa Gallivespians Iorek Byrnison fixing the incredibly fragile subtle knife The knife breaking at all Mrs Coulter continuing to live The incredible coincidence of everyone meeting the same Citt gazze kids It was all too much, and it only got worse as the book went on Thematically it was equally frustrating There has been so much talk about Pullman s anti religiosity, but the most offensive part of The Amber Spyglass is Pullman s portrayal of women I wouldn t go so far as to say that Pullman is a misogynist , but he does seem to have a poor understanding of women.The five main women in His Dark Materials are a catalogue of feminine stereotypes Lyra, as her name so clumsily suggest...

    I would not have read this book were it not for my friend Pat E who told me several years ago that it was one of the best books she had ever read, and also said it was the first children s book to have won England s prestigious Whitbread Prize for Literature So I read the whole series over the next couple years, and in this process discovered that one of my English department s medievalists said it was one of his favorite series Did I know, he asked, that Pullman was actually in conversation with John Milton s Paradise Lost as he wrote the series, which came to be called His Dark Materials the title from Milton , particularly in The Amber Spyglass Nope, I said, I had had no idea, so I paid some attention to that aspect of the book as I read it A little attention, I say, because I am no Milton scholar, and how many are who would be reading it Nor had I read than the sections of Paradise Lost I had read in the survey Brit lit course I had taken decades ago.Now, many years later, I and my family have invested some 37 hours listening to the audio version CDs of His Dark Materials narrated by Pullman himself Last summer, the first book, The Golden Compass, last fall the second in the series, The Subtle Knife, and now the third, The Amber Sp...

    i just decided to copy and paste a response i wrote regarding this book in one of the GR groups that is inexcusably lazy so sue me also, it is full of SPOILERS i think one of the most unique things about this book is the fact that one protagonist is a liar and the other is a murderer not only is that uncommon, particularly in YA lit, it is transgressive i like how the tools that help these two in their amazing adventures are ones that are normally displayed by villains and without their ruthless abilities to lie and to kill, they wouldn t have survived to put these abilities in the hands of the protagonists is one way of showing that despite having negative attributes, a person can still be good and still be heroic the characters are as complex as real people in that they are not all good and in many ways, both the ability to lie and the ability to kill come back to haunt both children particularly the latter they don t just get a free pass by the author but nor are their flaws portrayed in a black and white way many children lie many people in the world have killed but doing either does not make them automatically villains i like that as well as far as the author s atheism goes, it doesn t bother me and i think the series is quite separate from his point of view the God that is destroyed is not actually God, he is a despot angel gone to seed, an imposter i actually found the book to be exceedingly spiritual and very much connected to the ideas of love for human...

    If you haven t read the ENTIRE three books, please don t read any further I wouldn t want to spoil it for you because the ending is so endearing and..lasting, that I would HATE to take it away from you I absolutely fell in love with Lyra Didn t you She was the sister I wish I would have had growing up She was myself as I played with all of my brothers in the mudfields, she was the daughter I m sure every woman would yearn to have In my opinion, Philip Pullman was brilliant in his creation of this little girl Her flaws were her strength just as much as her strengths were her salvation And when you take her inquisitive innocence and throw in Will s brave maturity..together, the two of them are almost too much to bear I was heady with adoration for the two of them combined I m sure some would say they were too perfect together, too sappy, too trite But my cynicism runs deep and my heart was still touched Maybe it s because I m a girl or because my heart still remembers the depth of that first love The absoluteness of it My heart remembers Going to China , haa haa and it longs to visit again Will was the boy every girl wants to fall in love with Loyal, strong, clever, honest, swe...

    All the history of human life has been a struggle between wisdom and stupidity I stopped believing there was a power of good and a power of evil that were outside us And I came to believe that good and evil are names for what people do, not for what they are I will love you forever whatever happens Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again I ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment And when we do find each other again, we ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one ll ever tear us apart Every atom of me and every atom of you We ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks...

    I ve been putting this book off for almost four years I ve been truly terrified to read it for such a long time The first book, The Golden Compass, is one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read I adore it The second book is something else entirely I was horrified when I read it and truly disgusted with the unexpected direction the series took I did not want to read this one because I did not want my memories of the first book shattered completely So I finally picked it up and I approached it expecting to hate the thing I expected it to be worse than the second book, but my expectations were unfounded The biggest problem this trilogy has is the fact that it s not really a trilogy It s essentially one big book, one story Each book is not self contained but needs to be read in sequence they are not structured like individual books the story keeps flowing to the last page And this book, whilst nowhere near the same level of mastery the first book possessed, was not entirely bad It managed to piece everything together quite nicely, but this series had the potential to do so much I was delighted with the first book, for many reasons One of the main things that impressed me was the strength of its protagonist She s a very young girl who is very much human She is not...
