‘Without this child, we shall all die.’ Lyra Belacqua lives half-wild and carefree among the scholars of Jordan College, with her daemon, Pantalaimon, always by her side. But the arrival of her fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle – a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armoured bears. As she hurtles towards danger in the cold far North, Lyra never suspects the shocking truth: she alone is destined to win, or to lose, the biggest battle imaginable.

Release Date: 2005
Genre: Literary Criticism

A UK and American bestseller, as well as the basis for a major film to be released in 2007, His Dark Materials trilogy is an unusual young adult series thanks to its richly imagined world, rigorously explored cosmology and unflinching confrontation of the modern answers to the Big Questions. Yeffeth helps readers find their way through Pullman's trilogy, from the streets of Lyra's Oxford to Dr. Malone's lab, from the republic of Heaven to the harpy-ruled pit of Hell.

Release Date: 2004
Genre:

Fantasy-Geschichte im Universitätsstädtchen Oxford: Das kleine Büchlein ist in Leinen gebunden und mit hübschen Schwarzweiss-Drucken illustriert. Es stammt offenbar aus einer Trilogie mit Lyra Listenreichs Abenteuern und ihrem Kater Pantalaimon. Er ist ihr Daemon. Die Fantasy-Geschichte ist überhaupt voller Daemonen, Hexen und Alechemisten, was das friedliche Universitätsstädtchen Oxford von der Iffley Road bis hinüber zur Walton Well Road im Laufe der Erzählung zur schauerlichen Szenerie verzerrt. Eigentlich geht es Lyra dabei an den Kragen, aber die Schwäne retten sie vor dem Schlimmsten. So kann sie in Ruhe im College St. Sophias weiterstudieren. Die Story ist ein kleiner fantastischer Psychothriller mit jenem Quentchen englischen Humors, den nur Insider und Anglophile voll kapieren. Ab 12 Jahren, gut, Ruedi W. Schweizer.

Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 2: "Dreamy watercolors organized into neatly ordered panels lend themselves well to the fantastical setting, creating a sense of sweeping cinematic scope. Pullman's original magnum opus is heady and dense, and it may prove challenging for some; this adaptation, with its visual accessibility, can help those struggling with the novel's complexity achieve an understanding without watering down the intricacies."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Golden Compass Graphic Novel, vol. 1: “The story’s signature fantasies—the dæmons, the armored mercenary polar bears, and the alethiometer—are realized with compelling force (and, in the case of the dæmons, humor). [This] retelling will bring Pullman’s work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred “Whether this is a reader’s first experience with the tale or they are already familiar with the story, they should be delighted by this rendition.” —School Library Journal “The small and detailed but very clear panels are full of expressive faces, discernible action, and moody shadowing. Readers familiar with Pullman’s novel will appreciate this artistic adaptation, as will readers who simply prefer graphic novels to prose.” —Booklist From the Hardcover edition.
