At midnight and alone there's a stir in my mind from a summer afternoon very long gone...
I read about real in His Dark Materials, does anyone now? Worlds all around with nobody seeing them! Worlds some would like to see! Though I know and will say, there is something great out there! Would someone dear go and find what was lost long ago?
But at this late midnight suddenly my mind runs clear and you rise through. I sit and write a poem for your sake, that men that knows about something impossible. That follows a word like the ripples of your wake…

i am an artist and i paint about that that narrow thread of time between childhood innocence and a glossy world of temptation, but one also full of knowledge and art, of a time when both are happening but you do not realise. i saw a interview on tv late last week with pullman talking if ideas i have - does anyone know some more writters who can help me understand what i am talking about? email at

I think that HIS DARK MATERIALS is the best book I have ever read and he should wright a second series on how Lyra and Will meet up again, because the ending is sad.

A Carberry, I couldn't agree more... The trilogy can be pu right next to Tolkien and is in my oppinion even better than Harry Potter. When I read the books I was drawn to the next pages like a mosquito is drawn to a light source. Enjoyed them immensly, but when I got to the finish I nearly cried (and I'm 19!!! years of age for crying out loud) and couldn't stop thinking about beating the hell out of the author for making it end so sadly. Well, he can make it up by writing, as A Carberry said it, a second series :). I think we all hope he does...

I just picked up a book one day called Northern Lights, to read on my holiday to Mexico. Unaware that it was a trilogy, (How lucky I was to pick up the first book then.) And I have been hooked ever since. I keep hearing rumours that HIS DARK MATERIALS TRILOGY, will one day be made into a superb film. If this is so, I know that without doubt I will be the first person to be seated in the first screening of it. I also hear that his Dark Materials is no longer a trilogy and that he plans to release another book with the wonderful adventures of our superb character Lyra. Fingers crossed. Well done Phillip Pullman!

I absolutly love all of his books, the Sally Lockheart books are amazingly gripping. And his Dark Materials, i can't describe the emotions they caused. I really, really hope that the filn that i have heard rumours about does justice to the book.

>>By Amelia   (Tuesday, 1 Jul 2003 18:02)

Yeah, well, let me just say he's the best author ever. I read the Sally Lockhart trilogy first, but His Dark Materials is the best! All his books are good, even the children's books like Count Karlstein and Clockwork.

Best series I've ever read!! But why did it have to end? ans so sadly?
It didn't even have me bored for a second...
Fantastically amazing!

Ah these are very dark and creepy and Pullman does most excellent character development.

Yes.... the third book was very sad.
*tear drop*

for those who are confused by the "Northern Lights" question- the British edition is called "Northern Lights" the American Edition is called "The Golden Compass"

I've only read His Dark Materials and Count Karlstein, are any of his other books as great as His Dark Materials?

>>By raspberry_juice   (Monday, 11 Oct 2004 01:18)

I read Clockwork years ago. Very cool book. Other than that, yes I agree His Dark Materials was very good. The kind of adventure story that's sadly lacking these days. Reminded me of a Final Fantasy game. :D

>>By Flagg   (Saturday, 16 Oct 2004 14:09)

I read his dark materials. i loved northern lights. I thought subtle knife was ok and i had to drag myself through the amber spyglass. However i love his sally lockhart books like the ruby in the smoke.

Here's something interesting about the "His Dark Materials" triology.

It's being made into a movie. Not only this, but they are changing "The Church" into an evil corporation in order to not offend Biblebelt Americans. It's a travesty.

The Amber Spyglass is by far my favorite book. There's so much complexity and so much emotion that just sneaks up on you... I also enjoyed "Clockwork" or "All Wound Up" by Pullman, because I think that showcases his storytelling ability the best. I admire Pullman because he seems to be so different from other writers, he cares more about crafting a story that's compelling and spellbinding without much thought for "literary accomplishments" or worrying about being PC. He's a true artist.

That said, I think he's a little harsh on C.S. Lewis.

What do you think?

>>By Titivillus   (Thursday, 4 May 2006 18:58)

How dare they! I don't think I'll be able to go and see it...they'll ruin the whole thing, I'm sure of it. So what now, are they going to make Lyra reenact Ray Kroc inventing McDonalds? How on Earth are they going to justify Mrs. Coulter cutting away the souls of children? Will she now be stripping them of their Happy Meals?

This really annoys me.

On a brighter note, I also really liked "Clockwork." It was really creepy, and although I don't usually read horror-type stories, this one was really good. I'd like to read his other books (Sally Lockheart, plus "Lyra's Oxford" and the new one that will be coming out before too long) but haven't gotten around to it.

You're right, that is totally ridiculous. Religion was a massive theme in the books.
And besides, fundamentalist American Christians were offended by Harry Potter, they didn't feel the need to change that for the films. Maybe it has something to do with Harry Potter being (inexplicably) far more popular than Pullman's books...

>>By Flagg   (Friday, 26 May 2006 16:11)

Or it could just be that people are getting fed up with all this bashing Christianity stuff...they made a huge uproar over the Da Vinci Code, and they're doing the same thing here...honestly, if it bothers them that much, they should just not see the movie. But don't ruin it for real Pullman fans.

That's horrible that such an important detail of the books will be changed for such a ridiculous reason.
