A very interesting take on the nature of story, as told through a moderately subtle shift in the retelling of the stor(ies) of Jesus. Read this for its metanarrative, not for its illumination of the Biblical characters.

Read it right after it came out in 2000. Hard to believe how young I was then---12---and now that I'm thinking of it, I'm curious if it'll read differently to me today.

I remember it being not quite as perfect as the first two, but still worthy.

After His Dark Materials, this book was a disappointment. I’ve enjoyed many of the novels in the Canongate Myths series, but at least one of these (Ragnarok by A.S. Byatt), like this one, is just a straight-up telling of the original myth, rather than a retelling with a new and modern spin or fresh insights. If I’d wanted to reread the New Testament, I would have done so. Yes, there’s a slight twist on the gospels, but the essential tale is identical, and large parts of the narrative are just the gospels reworded. Pullman’s main addition is a lot of railing against the Church. Now, I enjoy a good bashing of organized religion as much as the next atheist, but at least tell me something new or put a witty spin on it or give me some new food for thought. Pullman does none of this.… (més)
