I apologise for not having posted in a while. Much has happened in the last few months, and we will post something at a later date giving a run down of our summer holidays. In the mean time, here is a book review of Philip Pullman’s ‘Book of Dust’.
This is an incredible book, written roughly 20 years after the original ‘His Dark Materials’ series. It is a prequel to this, set when Lyra, (the main character in ‘His Dark Materials’) is a baby. It is a heart wrenching story of her, a boy of eleven called Malcolm, and his frenemy Alice. Together they endure the long journey from Oxford to London by boat. In their trustworthy canoe, ‘La Belle Sauvage’ (the beautiful wild), they navigate the turbulent flood waters, and discover many secrets. I would definitely recommend this book: I found it enthralling and couldn’t put it down until it was finished. Congratulations Philip Pullman! This book really is a winner.
