C+ (Okay).

A boy protects a baby from conspiracies. I guess it's fine. I dislike prequels as a rule, and this spends a lot of the first half of the book doing extremely prequelly "but they didn't know about that yet" stuff. The second half is a respectably entertaining but unmemorable adventure. I might give Pullman another chance someday, but not with this series.

A perfect delight from start to finish! What a joy to revisit that world and meet new people. LOVED the fairy tale connections. And the hyena--real nightmare stuff. Can't wait for the next one! ( )

After a streak of disappointing audiobooks, I had to get an award-winner. This was a pretty great listening experience. Phew! The narrator did an excellent job giving the multitude of characters distinct voices.

I was very caught up in this story until it became more magical and action-packed toward the end. Then I sort of lost the thread. Still, as a whole it left me excited to read the second book in the series. I am as invested in Malcolm and Alice as I was in Lyra and Will.

In my opinion, this is more of a teen book than middle grade. Content includes mentions of pedophilia and child torture. I found it a little terrifying towards the end. It uses a specific horror movie trope that freaks me out: the villain coming back again and again even when you think he's finally been taken out.

Absolutely worth putting all my other books on "pause" for. This was as much fun as The Golden Compass, and without all the complicated nature-of-the-universe plot machinations of the other books in that trilogy. There is plenty of action and peril to propel the story along, and the two new main characters are easy to invest in. Baby Lyra isn't given much to do, other than to just be a baby, but it was interesting to see how the author portrays the relationship of human to daemon in infancy.

I think this probably works as a stand-alone, but it's hard to know how much of my familiarity with the characters of Lyra's parents and the world they occupy informed my understanding of this book's events. Interestingly, this book seems to incorporate a little more fantasy into its steampunkiness than I remember from the first book.

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library after a six month wait on hold. Michael Sheen's performance is fantastic. ( )

Unlike other coming-of-age fantasy books where we spend a lot of time camping, this time we're on a canoe, floating/paddling towards London for... a while.

Overall, I liked it and baby daemon Pan is adorable but I'm curious how this second trilogy will go- is it all prequel, or do we have a time jump in The Secret Commonwealth? (I uh, did a web search and saw some age things) The tricky thing with prequels is we know where they're generally headed, but it's nice to spend more time in a world from our childhood.

Dr. Hannah Relf reminds me of Dr. Mary Malone in her mentorship of young Malcolm, and that's probably intentional.

Definite darkness in this one (TW: sexual assault referenced and implied, also murder) but the original ALSO was surprisingly dark for a middle-grade-to-YA. ( )

I recognize that my expectations are impossibly high and that, in literature as well as in romance, you cannot return to the exact feeling you had before. I’d like to think that Pullman is biding his time, laying down the groundwork for what is yet to come.

And even with its longueurs, the book is full of wonder. [...] It’s a stunning achievement, the universe Pullman has created and continues to build on. All that remains is to sit tight and wait for the next installment.

The Greeks permeate his writing. Like Odysseus, his new hero, Malcolm, is on a self-appointed quest, fighting off enemies from his boat. (He’s also very unlike Odysseus, being 11 years old, ginger-haired and partial, like Pullman, to woodworking and meat pies.) “The Book of Dust” has other touchstones too: William Blake, the occult, ancient civilizations, East Asia and a eight-minute piece by Borodin called “In the Steppes of Central Asia.” Most of all, Edmund Spenser’s epic, 16th-century allegory, “The Faerie Queene.” Pullman copies the structure of “The Faerie Queene” — strange encounter after strange encounter — but thankfully not its style. When I admitted how I had struggled with the countless pages of archaic verse, Pullman shouted, gleeful, from his seat: “So did I! Couldn’t read it. Couldn’t read it at all until I was doing this.” His own novel is more readable, and earthier, locked into reality by character and geography, Malcolm and Oxford.
