5.0 out of 5 stars J K Rowling would like to write as well as this...
By Marco Santamarina on March 24, 2011
Phillip Pullman introduced us to a completely new genre with the "His Dark Materials" stories about Lyra Bell'acqua, the Golden Compass and the Armoured Bears. These are children's stories which are so beautifully written that adults find them irresistable, too. And just as Harry Potter's character has grown and matured to face stronger foes than bullies from the Sixth Form, Pullman's protagonists have evolved to lure us into new worlds of adventure, intrigue and deadly danger. Sally Lockhart has grown from an ingenuous sixteen-year-old trying to understand the circumstances of her father's untimely death, to an independent and resourceful young woman in the Victorian era. Following on from "The Ruby in the Smoke", we find Sally running her own financial management service while still forming an essential part of the Garland and Lockhart Detective Agency and the Garland's Photographic Studio. Sally's livelihood, her friends and ultimately her very life are threatened by a ruthless, manipulative and corrupt businessman of sinister eastern-European backgound. Bellmann's plot to manufacture and sell death-dealing weapons to tyrranical despots brings him into conflict with the Lockhart businesses, their ethics and their personnel, and sets up a confrontation which could cost Sally everything she values...
I commend this book to even the most modern of young people, and to their parents, too. The writing style is balanced so cleverly, the language is set in the elegance of the Victorian era but the conflict translates readily to present times. The opponents of our personal liberty are as evident today as a hundred or a thousand years ago, and the final struggle seems to arise from within ourselves, as this wonderful story tells. Great reading, and well read by Anton Lesser!
