Free download The Secret Commonwealth Free read Ó The Secret Commonwealth ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free E a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is rightTheirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford across Europe and into Asia in search for what is lost a city haunted by daemons a secret at the heart of a desert and the mystery of the elusive Dus. I don t prioritize books by white cis male authors but I m still interested in the adventures of Lyra now a twenty year old college student so figured I d make an exception And then I got to page 187 and said oh no Oh gross OUT LOUD This is what I get for trusting male authors a character who is in love with a girl he s known since she was a baby who was attracted to her when she was a young teen WHO HE WAS TEACHING but now it s okay because she s twenty And in mortal danger Pullman even has a sensible lady tell this dude it s cool you re both adults EWWWW no And it s not that the age difference is even that big it s just that Pullman presents all this in a very clueless manner Lyra secretly enjoys being catcalled if you were wondering about the general vibe Lyra of course is also threatened with rape at one pointThe story here is kind of weird too Pullman is doing his usual railing against corrupt organized religion and has now added rational intellectuals and skeptics who hate imagination it s all bizarre to the mix I just think it s weird that all these secret groups of powerfulevil men are still all after this one poor girl And then everyone is just journeying around for the entire book It doesn t have a remotely satisfying conclusion because the conclusion will be in the next book Just all around not good C

Free download The Secret Commonwealth Free read Ó The Secret Commonwealth ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacua begin her life changing journeyIt is seven years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life Will Parry on a park bench in Oxford's Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground breaking bestselling His Dark Materials seuenceNow in The Secret Commonwealth we. Hey this review has spoilers soI was really wanting to love this book and His Dark Materials is basically still my favourite series ever I don t really know where to begin so I m just going to make dot points I m pretty disappointed Why did chapter 31 even need to exist why is it necessary to the plot to have the attempted rape of the main female character The parts at the end are filled with unintentional irony She says she shouldn t have to expect that like Pullman is a massive feminist for point out that fact but if he was an actual feminist he would never have put this chapter in the book to start off with What purpose did it serve Why even mention that Malcolm was attracted to Lyra when she was like 14 or 15 when he was her teacher and 11 years older than her at the time Could there have been a way better way to dismiss cold logic in the face of blind acceptance of the church than a convoluted plot about philosophersauthors That I find it unrealistic that Pan and Lyra would ever fight about It seems strange the way the events of His Dark Materials are referred to like they happened 50 years ago instead of only like 7 or 8 There s no way you forget stuff that fast Pullman trying to make an allegory of the rose oil causing conflict oil disputes and the ultimate controlling of this by the West feels like way too much with everything else happening in this story and also Poorly done Same goes for the refugee crisis the entire chapter about Malcolm at that rallytown meeting etc We already had the Adam and Eve story played out again with Will and Lyra why do we need this to happen again just with a storypoem belonging to another culture You ve got this ancient story from this culture and then suddenly of course it s about our two main white characters who are special Where was the plot What was the point Was the purpose of this book solely to set everything up for the 3rd book What was the true purpose of this story That as a woman I shouldn t travel to the middle east because most of the people there are clearly poor impoverished and cruel abusers The world felt too much like our world Like Will s world And not in a suddenly the world is darker because Lyra isn t a child any which would make sense It felt too Modern I can only imagine how jarring this book would feel reading straight on from The Amber Spyglassthe rest of the trilogy I feel like finding Philip Pullman and shaking him and asking What were you actually trying to do here Is this a spy book Is this a fantasy book Is it about terrorism Is it about religion Is it about human relationships The slave trade Alechmists Animal abuse The oppression of women Refugees Clearly it s about all of these things but for God s sake please just pick like 3 It s like he made a list of every single possible world issue he was interested inmad about and shoved it all into one single novel before anyone could edit his list Alice is the best character in this book I miss Will

Free download The Secret Commonwealth Free read Ó The Secret Commonwealth ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Meet Lyra Silvertongue And she is no longer a child The second volume of Sir Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust sees Lyra now twenty years old and her daemon Pantalaimon forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world that they had no idea existedPulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; onc. The Secret Commonwealth continues Lyra s story many years after the conclusion of His Dark Materials with a young woman adrift from her deamon and starting to understand who she really is in the world It s a story about acceptance challenging the rules left by the old and self discoveryAs always Pullman s writing is a joy to read He can draw me back into this world effortlessly as if I ve never been away from Lyra and Pantalaimon But she s not the girl I m used to seeing At the start of the story she s adrift unsettled by recent texts she s read regarding philosophy and the purpose of deamons She s lost her spark her imagination and recklessness Everything that s the essence of Lyra the essence of Pan is gone I struggled at first to relate to this woman although her daily thoughts of Will and how he would have handled certain situations absolutely broke my heart But she s essentially a stranger clinging onto memories one who doesn t understand Pan any and one who doesn t welcome the strange and unusual into her life She s changed And not for the better With the reintroduction of Mal and Alice we see Lyra s fate has been continuously intertwined with the two without her ever knowing her entire life But the naivety of childhood has worn off and she s soon plunged into their dangerous world once again A world full of secret societies secret peopleand a secret commonwealthThere s a lot also going on in the background here The political machinations we see peeks of in His Dark Materials involving the Magisterium move to the forefront as new players Marcel Delamare and alethiometer reader Olivier Bonneville seek to gain powerful footings within the church Delamare in particular has grand plans to unite the Magisterium together for his own gains gains involving Lyra and revenge Developments that happened over 10 years ago slowly start to come to fruition in what I can only describe as the longest waiting game ever seen It s a plot steeped heavily in espionage lies and politics Olivier Bonneville is also an interesting new player to the game Son of the man with the hyena deamon seen in La Belle Sauvage he s an expert with the alethiometer and haunted by ideas of revenge towards the man who killed his father He s not as clever as he thinks he is and he understands very little about the world he s so heavily involved in and his obsession with Lyra will not end wellI liked Lyra s various interactions throughout the novel as we see her travel across Europe and into the wider world outside Oxford on her uest Some of the things she encounters along the way are uncanny and strange but they help to bring Lyra back into what she knows best from her past her acceptance of everything that s different I also enjoy her interactions with Mal Alice and the gyptians and would have loved Lyra to have spent time amongst Ma Costa The comparisons between the girl who visited the Fens as a child with Ma Costa and the woman who revisits now only further highlight her differences and what she s lost view spoilerI will say I wasn t keen on the strange instalove reactions from Mal towards Lyra but I think I m still biased for my own love of Lyra and Will which Lyra herself also readily accepts when uestioned by Farder Coram She isn t ready to let him go and isn t sure if she ever will be I m not ready to accept her love for anyone else either hide spoiler
