Lyra vive al Jordan College di Oxford. Ma il mondo di Lyra è ben diverso dal nostro. Oltre l'Oceano c'è l'America, ma lo stato più importante di quel continente si chiama Nuova Francia; giganteschi orsi corazzati regnano sull'Artico; lo studio della natura viene chiamato "teologia sperimentale". E soprattutto ogni essere umano ha il suo daimon: un compagno, una parte di sé, di sesso opposto al proprio, grazie al quale nessuno deve temere la solitudine. Ma questo mondo sta per attraversare un periodo critico... Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

i first read this when i was like 10 or 11 and i remember really liking it. i recently came across an online thread about this book/series and the message(s) the author was intending to convey, and i was taken aback. i honestly really didnt remember anything except for talking bears that wear armour Leggi tutto
“You cannot change what you are, only what you do.” “So Lyra and her daemon turned away from the world they were born in, and looked toward the sun, and walked into the sky.”
I 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, i.e. 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 Leggi tutto
Before quantum mechanics and Schrödinger’s cat’s paradox, alternate universes were inherently accessible post-mortem, either Heaven or Hell: that whole “other side” business had a strong moral and religious bias, obviously. However, contemporary science fiction has introduced new possibilities of ex Leggi tutto
