Description

UPDATE: I sort of wrote this review before I had finished reading the book all the way through, so it is with a heavy heart that I say that although I loved the first book and enjoyed the second one, the third one is not of the same quality. His Dark Materials Trilogy follows the coming of age of the two main characters, Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry, as they wander through a multiverse of parallel universes and move between many alternate worlds. There, she comes to understand the true nature of Dust, which is both created by and nourishes life that has become self-aware. In 2007 the judges for CILIP Carnegie Medal selected the novel as one of the 10 most important children's novels in the last 70 years. There is very mild rubbing to the lower board-edges and a small remainder dot atop the textblock, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright.

The destiny that awaits her will take her to the frozen lands of the Arctic, where witch-clans reign and ice-bears fight. The first; NORTHERN LIGHTS; is now the stunning motion picture THE GOLDEN COMPASS; made by New Line Cinema and Scholastic Media. Includes the 'Peril of the Pole' game in rear cover pocket:- Synopsis: Another mesmerising episode from the universe of 'His Dark Materials' including the very first meeting of those two legends and friends, Lee Scoresby, the Texan balloonist, and Iorek Byrnison, the armoured bear. Nice and clean pages but with two small marks and slightly yellow on the outer edges, small mark and a couple of creases on the edges of the pages. The play was successful and was revived (with a different cast and a revised script) for a second run between November 2004 and April 2005.It definitely has its moments, but any positive thoughts I had about the series evaporated in a puff of smoke after experiencing the saccharine, nauseating conclusion, which nearly had me blowing chunks on this book's pages. Small format paperback (a couple of small nicks and crease on the edges of the cover and spine) in VGC plus. And with every step, they move closer to an even greater threat - and the shattering truth of their own destiny. Northern Lights' was listed in The Observer's All-Time 100 Best Novels [2003], The Times' Novel List Top 60 Poll [2013] and was selected for World Book Night (2011).

In his introduction, he adapts a famous description of Milton by Blake to quip that he (Pullman) "is of the Devil's party and does know it". Lo pedi en martes y me llego en viernes en lugar de lunes, el tamaño es perfecto para llevarlo en la mochila sin que ocupe nada de espacio, y estoy hablando de los tres al mismo tiempo, individualmente son más compactos y perfectos para leer en el transporte público.

Overall I enjoyed the story and it is very easy to imagine the different worlds, settings and characters. Will becomes the bearer of the Subtle Knife, a tool forged three hundred years before by Cittàgazze's scientists from the same alloy used to make the guillotine in Bolvangar. As always, a classic, beautiful and stylish edition of three important modern novels presented by Everyman.
