Read full description of the books:

Nelle ultime pagine della Bussola d’oro abbiamo lasciato Lyra, la giovanissima e intrepida protagonista, nell’atto di incamminarsi sul ponte costruito dal padre, Lord Asriel, verso un ignoto nuovo mondo, sola. Ha alle spalle un’avventura meravigliosa quanto sconvolgente; la sua infanzia al Jordan College; il sadismo lucido della signora Coulter, la madre ritrovata; il suo viaggio verso il Nord; l’incontro con Iorek Byrnisson, l’orso corazzato, e con le streghe che vivono centinaia di anni e solcano i cieli sui loro rami di pino-nuvola. Lyra è predestinata da secoli a salvare dalla distruzione il suo mondo, che somiglia all’Inghilterra dei primi del Novecento, ma dove, accanto agli Zeppelin e alle lampade a olio, esiste una fisica – chiamata teologia sperimentale – che conosce già le particelle elementari; dove tutti hanno un proprio daimon, grazie al quale non si è mai soli. Ma in questo mondo molti rimangono i misteri: la Polvere che si riversa sulla Terra dall’Aurora; gli Ingoiatori, fantomatici rapitori di bambini; l’aletiometro, uno strumento simile alla bussola, che serve per conoscere la verità... In questo secondo libro lo scenario si amplia: da un mondo intermedio, in cui è arrivata attraverso il ponte, la ragazza approderà nel nostro, dove l’aspettano altri incredibili incontri e la soluzione di alcuni misteri. Se vasta è la scena, profondo è il dramma: insieme al suo nuovo compagno di avventura, Will Parry, Lyra rimarrà coinvolta nella più ardita delle guerre e, malgrado i pericoli e le fatiche cui è sottoposta, non esiterà nella sua marcia verso il vero. Ma questa volta non saranno né lei né l’aletiometro a rovesciare l’esito della battaglia... L’universo fantastico di Pullman trae ispirazione dal Paradiso perduto di Milton ed è abitato da personaggi vivi e palpitanti, metafore, al tempo stesso, di grandi idee astratte ed è denso di forza e bellezza.

Read information about the author

Ebook La lama sottile: 2 read Online! In 1946, acclaimed author Philip Pullman was born in Norwich, England, into a Protestant family. Although his beloved grandfather was an Anglican priest, Pullman became an atheist in his teenage years. He graduated from Exeter College in Oxford with a degree in English, and spent 23 years as a teacher while working on publishing 13 books and numerous short stories. Pullman has received many awards for his literature, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal for exceptional children’s literature in 1996, and the Carnegie of Carnegies in 2006. He is most famous for his “His Dark Materials” trilogy, a series of young adult fantasy novels which feature freethought themes. The novels cast organized religion as the series’ villain. Pullman told The New York Times in 2000: “When you look at what C.S. Lewis is saying, his message is so anti-life, so cruel, so unjust. The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt. At one point, the old professor says, ‘It’s all in Plato’ — meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude, shabby, imperfect, second-rate copy of something much better. I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things, the absolute primacy of the material life, rather than the spiritual or the afterlife.” He argues for a “republic of heaven” here on Earth.

In 2007, the first novel of the "His Dark Materials" trilogy was adopted into the motion picture "The Golden Compass" by New Line Cinema. Many churches and Christian organizations, including the Catholic League, called for a boycott of the film due to the books’ atheist themes. While the film was successful in Europe and moderately received in the United States, the other two books in the trilogy were not be adapted into film, possibly due to pressure from the Catholic Church. When questioned about the anti-church views in His Dark Materials, Pullman explains in an interview for Third Way (UK): “It comes from history. It comes from the record of the Inquisition, persecuting heretics and torturing Jews and all that sort of stuff; and it comes from the other side, too, from the Protestants burning the Catholics. It comes from the insensate pursuit of innocent and crazy old women, and from the Puritans in America burning and hanging the witches — and it comes not only from the Christian church but also from the Taliban. Every single religion that has a monotheistic god ends up by persecuting other people and killing them because they don't accept him. Wherever you look in history, you find that. It’s still going on” (Feb. 2002). Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matter.
