Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for THE GOLDEN COMPASS

"Marvelous." —The New Yorker

Pullman is quite possibly a genius… Using the lineaments of fantasy to tell the truth about the universal experience of growing up.”  —Newsweek

Praise for THE SUBTLE KNIFE

“Just as quick-moving and unputdownable as The Golden Compass. . . . The mysteries deepen and the wonders grow even more extravagant.” —The Washington Post

“Pullman’s imagination soars . . . A literary rollercoaster ride you won’t want to miss.”—The Boston Globe

“The story gallops with ferocious momentum . . . Devilishly inventive.” —The New York Times Book Review

Praise for THE AMBER SPYGLASS

"War, politics, magic, science, individual lives and cosmic destinies are all here . . . shaped and assembled into a narrative of tremendous pace by a man with a generous, precise intelligence. I am completely enchanted." —The New York Times Book Review

"Breathtaking adventure . . . a terrific story, eloquently told." The Boston Globe

About the Author

PHILIP PULLMAN is one of the most acclaimed writers working today. He is best known for the His Dark Materials trilogy, which has been named one of the top 100 books of all time by Newsweek and one of the all-time greatest novels by Entertainment Weekly. Pullman was knighted for his services to literature in the 2019 New Year Honours.

The Book of Dust, Pullman’s eagerly anticipated return to the world of His Dark Materials, will also be a book in three parts. It began with La Belle Sauvage and continues with The Secret Commonwealth.

Philip Pullman is the author of many other beloved novels. For younger readers: I Was a Rat!, Count Karlstein, Two Crafty Criminals!, Spring-Heeled Jack, and The Scarecrow and His Servant. For older readers: the Sally Lockhart quartet (The Ruby in the Smoke, The Shadow in the North, The Tiger in the Well, and The Tin Princess), The White Mercedes, and The Broken Bridge. He has written a magnificent collection, Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm, and his essays and lectures on writing and storytelling have been gathered in a volume called Dæmon Voices: On Stories and Storytelling.

Philip Pullman lives in Oxford, England.

4.0 out of 5 stars You could be here wanting to know how good the book was
By Nina Willow on December 5, 2017
Books are tricky to rate. You could be here wanting to know how good the book is, or you might want to know if you should buy this particular format. I do not like this format. The book is very small, and the pages are almost as thin as those of The Bible. The story is a different matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great edition of a great series!
By Amazon Customer on December 4, 2018
The Golden Compass is a great book! I have yet to read the other two volumes in the series, which is why I bought this particular edition. It’s thick, but compact. Came with a ribbon marker and dust jacket. Seems like it will hold up well, also. If you want all three books, this is the one to get. I saw some complaints that the print is small, but it looks about average in comparison to the size of the book. I would buy again and highly recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Stains on book - not handled with care
By Amazon Customer on October 28, 2019
Ordered this book and was super excited to add it to my permanent library. I'm giving it three stars because the book itself came dirty. Once you took the book jacket off there were black marks and stains all over it. SO I ordered a replacement, which ALSO came dirty. There were sticky greasy stains on the back of the book jacket and black marks on the bottom edge of the pages. I know its weird to worry about cosmetic things but I've had books since I was in middle school that are in better condition than what I bought new. If I'm buying a brand new book, I expect it to look and feel brand new. Pictures are attached (with and without flash).

Ordering one more time and hoping that it will come in good condition.
