    PDF/EPUB Philip Pullman å Northern Lights ePUB Õ å northern download, lights download, Northern Lights KindleThis novel is an absolute work of pure genius and is in my top ten reads of all time Before I go into the depths of character and plot let me start by saying this book is up there with other fantasy hard hitters by this I mean books like The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia the books that define the genre This is high praise indeed and this novel is worthy of it The protagonist of the book is Lyra a young girl who is parentless and seemingly friendless She has grown up in an Oxford College and has developed a detachment to her guardians She spends her days enjoying her youth and harassing those that turn out to be some of her greatest allies For her this book is a journey of self discovery a way of exploring the limits of her character and potential Her adventure sees her befriend an armoured polar bear and become the wielder of

    PDF/EPUB Philip Pullman å Northern Lights ePUB Õ å northern download, lights download, Northern Lights Kindlethe golden compass trilogy seems like a natural progression in christian literature yes it is christian literature the same way the chronicles of narnia are aslan is only a lion when the reader is about 10 or so in the united states after a point he unrepentantly becomes jesus and the four children are like the gospels or something and the story is somewhat ruined then because as an adult you can't just shoehorn jesus into a lion outfit without snickering a littlepullman however has solved this problem i can't continue without utterly spoiling the story for everyone who hasn't read it so consider yourselves warnedhe made jesus into a little girl even better he made jesus into a little girl who doesn't even know she's jesus now how's that for a new twist on the new testament? the part that's particularly brilliant about it is that it actually worked lyra is never really anything like christ she just follows the path

    PDF/EPUB Philip Pullman å Northern Lights ePUB Õ å northern download, lights download, Northern Lights KindleI enjoyed the premise and theme of the book Pullman created well thought out and memorable characters It was a little too technical for me in regard to the depths of fantasy ie I had to go back and look up the meaning of some of the made up words in the book to stay focused on what was actually happening But great imagery I'm not sure if I will read book 2 or 3 of the series yet thoughts?
