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

Philip Pullman Ò The Secret Commonwealth reader

The Secret CommonwealthIt 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
