The Subtle Knife. Children's Edition. His Dark Materials 2 (His Dark Materials) The Subtle Knife. Children's Edition. His Dark Materials 2 (His Dark Materials)

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

With The Golden Compass Philip Pullman garnered every accolade under the sun. Critics lobbed around such superlatives as "elegant," "awe-inspiring," "grand," and "glittering," and used "magnificent" with gay abandon. Each reader had a favorite chapter--or, more likely, several--from the opening tour de force to Lyra's close call at Bolvangar to the great armored-bear battle. And Pullman was no less profligate when it came to intellectual firepower or singular characters. The dæmons alone grant him a place in world literature. Could the second installment of his trilogy keep up this pitch, or had his heroine and her too, too sullied parents consumed him? And what of the belief system that pervaded his alternate universe, not to mention the mystery of Dust? More revelations and an equal number of wonders and new players were definitely in order. The Subtle Knife offers everything we could have wished for, and more. For a start, there's a young hero--from our world--who is a match for Lyra Silvertongue and whose destiny is every bit as shattering. Like Lyra, Will Parry has spent his childhood playing games. Unlike hers, though, his have been deadly serious. This 12-year-old long ago learned the art of invisibility: if he could erase himself, no one would discover his mother's increasing instability and separate them. As the novel opens, Will's enemies will do anything for information about his missing father, a soldier and Arctic explorer who has been very much airbrushed from the official picture. Now Will must get his mother into safe seclusion and make his way toward Oxford, which may hold the key to John Parry's disappearance. But en route and on the lam from both the police and his family's tormentors, he comes upon a cat with more than a mouse on her mind: "She reached out a paw to pat something in the air in front of her, something quite invisible to Will." What seems to him a patch of everyday Oxford conceals far more: "The cat stepped forward and vanished." Will, too, scrambles through and into another oddly deserted landscape--one in which children rule and adults (and felines) are very much at risk. Here in this deathly silent city by the sea, he will soon have a dustup with a fierce, flinty little girl: "Her expression was a mixture of the very young--when she first tasted the cola--and a kind of deep, sad wariness." Soon Will and Lyra (and, of course, her dæmon, Pantalaimon) uneasily embark on a great adventure and head into greater tragedy. As Pullman moves between his young warriors and the witch Serafina Pekkala, the magnetic, ever-manipulative Mrs. Coulter, and Lee Scoresby and his hare dæmon, Hester, there are clear signs of approaching war and earthly chaos. There are new faces as well. The author introduces Oxford dark-matter researcher Mary Malone; the Latvian witch queen Ruta Skadi, who "had trafficked with spirits, and it showed"; Stanislaus Grumman, a shaman in search of a weapon crucial to the cause of Lord Asriel, Lyra's

Das Magische Messer - His Dark Materials 2 (Filmausgabe) Das Magische Messer - His Dark Materials 2 (Filmausgabe)

aus der Kategorie Kinder- & Jugendbuch

Mit Das magische Messer stellt Philip Pullman nach Der Goldene Kompaß den zweiten Band der His-Dark-Materials-Trilogie vor. Die Hauptrollen spielen der zwölfjährige Will Parry und die gleichaltrige Lyra Listenreich, Heldin der ersten Folge. Der junge Parry will das Geheimnis um seinen Vater lösen, der vor zehn Jahren bei einer Polarexpedition verschwunden ist. Durch Zufall findet er einen Zugang zu einer anderen Welt, als er vor geheimnisvollen Männern flieht. Hier trifft er auf Lyra, die ebenfalls durch ein Dimensionstor aus ihrer Heimat, die der Erde ähnelt, in diese fremde Welt gelangt ist. Auch sie ist auf der Suche nach ihrem Vater, Lord Asriel. Es stellt sich heraus, daß das Schicksal der beiden eng miteinander verknüpft ist. Gemeinsam müssen sie in den verschiedenen Welten um ihr Leben kämpfen und viele Abenteuer überstehen. Im Verlauf der Geschichte wird es immer deutlicher, daß den beiden Kindern eine Hauptrolle zugedacht ist in der anstehenden entscheidenden Schlacht zwischen Gut und Böse. Pullman greift in diesem Buch das in Film und Literatur immer wiederkehrende Prinzip von parallelen, sich in vielerlei Hinsicht ähnelnden Welten auf. Es ist etwas schwierig, den Einstieg zu finden. Die verschiedenen Handlungsstränge scheinen zu Beginn etwas verwirrend und ohne Zusammenhang zu sein. Doch je mehr man weiterliest und sich in den Inhalt vertieft, desto besser enthüllen sich diese Zusammenhänge. Man wird immer mehr in die von Pullman geschaffenen Welten von Hexen, Technik und Magie hineingezogen. Nach Beendigung des Buches bleibt nur zu hoffen, daß der Folgeband bald auf den deutschen Markt kommt. --Markus Hofstetter

Das Bernstein Teleskop. His Dark Materials 03. Das Bernstein Teleskop. His Dark Materials 03.

aus der Kategorie Kinder- & Jugendbuch

Gleich vom Anfang der ersten Szene an wird Das Bernstein-Teleskop den Leser packen und nicht mehr loslassen. Wir verraten an dieser Stelle allerdings nur, dass man sofort feststellt, wer zum Schluss von Das Magische Messer Lyra gefangen genommen hat, obwohl es nicht klar ist, ob die Absichten dieses Individiums nun gut oder böse sind. Wir erfahren auch, dass Will nach wie vor im Besitz der Klinge ist, die ihn befähigt, sich den Weg von einer Welt zur anderen zu schneiden, und dass sich ihm mittlerweile zwei geflügelte Freunde angeschlossen haben, die fest entschlossen sind, ihn zur Bergfestung Lord Asriels zu begleiten. Der Junge hat allerdings nur ein Ziel vor Augen -- seine Freundin zu retten und ihr den Alethiometer zurückzugeben, ein Instrument, das ihr und den Lesern von Der goldene Kompass und dessen Fortsetzung so viel offenbart hat. Wir müssen auch nicht lange warten, bis wir das "Prickeln des Sternenlichts" auf Serafina Pekkalas Haut erfahren dürfen, während sie einen ausgehungerten Iorek Byrnison ausfindig macht und ihn für Lord Asriels Kreuzzug anwirbt. In der Zwischenzeit kämpfen die zwei Fraktionen der Kirche darum, als erste an Lyra heranzukommen. Eine davon ist sogar bereit, einem ihrer Priester schon im Voraus Absolution zu gewähren, sollte es ihm gelingen, die Todsünde zu begehen, das Mädchen zu töten; für diese Tyrannen wäre dies nichts Geringeres als "eine heilige Pflicht". In dieser letzten Folge seiner Trilogie hat sich Philip Pullman die höchsten Ziele gesetzt. Sie darf ihren Vorgängern in Sachen schierer Action und Originalität in nichts nachstehen und muss gleichzeitig alle noch bestehenden Rätsel auflösen. Die gute Nachricht hierbei ist, dass es keine ernsthaft schlechten Nachrichten gibt. Nicht, dass Das Bernstein-Teleskop keine verfahrenen und riskant-gefährlichen Situationen enthalten würde -- die gibt es zuhauf (wer wollte es auch anders haben?). Aber Pullman führt seine Trilogie zu einem Schluss, der sowohl friedlich als auch niederschmetternd ist. Mit einem Erzählstil, der klar und dennoch lyrisch und plastisch daherkommt, blendet sich der Autor mühelos in die Gedankenwelt seiner Hauptfiguren ein und wieder aus. Er wartet zudem mit einigen zusätzlichen Welten auf. In einer davon wird Dr. Mary Malone in eine scheinbar einfache Gesellschaft aufgenommen. Das Milieu der Mulefa (auch hier verraten wir nicht mehr) macht sie reich an Bewusstsein, während ihr Leben einem langsamen und gemessenen Rhythmus folgt. Im Verlauf seines Epos erhält Pullman seine Szenen gewaltiger Schönheit und Zärtlichkeit aufrecht und gewährt uns sogar den einen oder anderen Moment der humorvollen Entspannung. An einer Stelle beispielsweise schikaniert Lyras Mutter eine Reihe kirchlicher Befehlsempfänger. Mrs. Coulter ist ohne Frage so berauschend und umwerfend wie eh und je. Kann es sein, dass wir sie letztendlich sogar bewundern werden, während sie ihr verzweifeltes Spiel zu Ende bringt? In diesem Fall -- wie auc

His Dark Materials Slipcase: "Northern Lights", "Subtle Knife", "Amber Spyglass" His Dark Materials Slipcase: "Northern Lights", "Subtle Knife", "Amber Spyglass"

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

The Northern Lights Lyra's life is already sufficiently interesting for a novel before she eavesdrops on a presentation by her uncle Lord Asriel to his colleagues in the Jordan College faculty, Oxford. The college, famed for its leadership in experimental theology, is funding Lord Asriel's research into the heretical possibility of the existence of worlds unlike Lyra's own, where everyone is born with a familiar animal companion, magic of a kind works, the Tartars are threatening to overrun Muscovy, and the Pope is a puritanical Protestant. Set in an England familiar and strange, Philip Pullman's lively, taut story is a must-read and re-read for fantasy lovers of all ages. The world-building is outstanding, from the subtle hints of the 1898 Tokay to odd quirks of language to the panserbjorne, while determined, clever Lyra is strongly reminiscent of Joan Aiken's Dido Twite. The Subtle KnifeAt the end of The Northern Lights, Lyra Silvertongue watched in fear and fascination as her father, Lord Asriel, created a bridge between worlds. Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, are now lost in an alternate universe where they meet Will Parry, a fugitive from a third universe. Will has found a small window between Cittagazze (a place where children roam unchecked but invisible Specters suck the spirit out of adults) and his Oxford, which, with its Burger Kings and cars, is frighteningly different from the Oxford Lyra knows. Will's father, an explorer, disappeared years ago, but recently some odd characters have started asking questions about him, and now, having accidentally killed one of them, Will is wanted by the police. Armed with The Subtle Knife, a tool that cuts any material (including that which separates universes) and Lyra's alethiometer, the children set out to find John Parry, with adults of various stripes in desperate pursuit. Lyra's finest qualities--her courage and quick mind--are stretched to the limit as she has to lie, cheat and steal to keep herself and Will out of danger. However, she must also learn when to tell the truth and when to trust, for though she does not yet know it, she has a huge part to play in the upcoming battle between Good and Evil. The Amber SpyglassPhilip Pullman began the spellbinding His Dark Materials sequence with The Northern Lights, which dazzled everyone who read it, children and adults alike. Remarkably, he kept up the quality in The Subtle Knife, the second title in the trilogy. Here he brings the series to an extraordinary conclusion. Will and Lyra, the two children at the heart of the books, have become separated amid great dangers. Can they find each other, and their friends? Then complete their mysterious quest before it is too late? The great rebellion against the dark powers that hold Lyra's world in thrall (and many others) is nearing its climax. She and Will have crucial parts to play, but they don't know what it is that they must do, and terrible powers are hunting them down. The pace of the book is co

The Amber Spyglass: His Dark Materials, Book III (His Dark Materials (Pb)) The Amber Spyglass: His Dark Materials, Book III (His Dark Materials (Pb))

aus der Kategorie Englische Bücher / English Books

From the very start of its very first scene, The Amber Spyglass will set hearts fluttering and minds racing. All we'll say here is that we immediately discover who captured Lyra at the end of The Subtle Knife, though we've yet to discern whether this individual's intent is good, evil, or somewhere in between. We also learn that Will still possesses the blade that allows him to cut between worlds, and has been joined by two winged companions who are determined to escort him to Lord Asriel's mountain redoubt. The boy, however, has only one goal in mind--to rescue his friend and return to her the alethiometer, an instrument that has revealed so much to her and to readers of The Golden Compass and its follow-up. Within a short time, too, we get to experience the "tingle of the starlight" on Serafina Pekkala's skin as she seeks out a famished Iorek Byrnison and enlists him in Lord Asriel's crusade: A complex web of thoughts was weaving itself in the bear king's mind, with more strands in it than hunger and satisfaction. There was the memory of the little girl Lyra, whom he had named Silvertongue, and whom he had last seen crossing the fragile snow bridge across a crevasse in his own island of Svalbard. Then there was the agitation among the witches, the rumors of pacts and alliances and war; and then there was the surpassingly strange fact of this new world itself, and the witch's insistence that there were many more such worlds, and that the fate of them all hung somehow on the fate of the child. Meanwhile, two factions of the Church are vying to reach Lyra first. One is even prepared to give a priest "preemptive absolution" should he succeed in committing mortal sin. For these tyrants, killing this girl is no less than "a sacred task." In the final installment of his trilogy, Philip Pullman has set himself the highest hurdles. He must match its predecessors in terms of sheer action and originality and resolve the enigmas he already created.
