  • His Dark Materials
rdfs:comment
  • His Dark Materials is a fantasy trilogy written by Philip Pullman, consisting of The Northen Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, as well as a couple of spinoff books (Lyra's Oxford, Once Upon a Time in the North). Known for rather un-subtle messeges against religion. It follows the Lyra Belacqua's journey across the Northern tundra and eventually spills out into the further multiverse and the rebellion against the Authority.The first book was adapted into a movie called The Golden Compass, which unfortunately was dissapointing. A French comic book adaption is in the works, with the first part of the Northern Lights already out in France.
  • The widely acclaimed His Dark Materials or as Her Raw Materials trilogy comprises some of the greatest evangelical Christian literature in history, surpassing annual sales of the Book of Mormon, Left Behind, and the Bible combined. Written by devout Catholic Philip Pullman, the books include The Golden Crucifix, The Subtle Spear, and The Spyglass of Revelation. Each book passionately professes the will of God, the powerful story of Christ, and the amazing, peace-filled history of Christianity in a cleverly layered children's story, as only a balding Englishman can tell it.
  • His Dark Materials is a trilogy of books written by Philip Pullman. The series is partly set in a universe parallel to and similar to our own. The first and most immediate difference, and the difference adored most by self-indulgent fangirls, is that everyone has a dæmon, which is a sort of visible extension of the soul, and takes animal form (although the dæmon of one Master of Jordan College is recorded as having been in the form of a human woman). When you are a child, your dæmon can change form at will, but once you hit puberty, it settles, and chooses one form. Said form will typically say something important about your nature — servants often have dog dæmons.

Other differences between that world and this are that the Church has greater power, that there are talking bears, the panserbjørne that live in the Arctic, and that there are long-lived witches. Technology in this world is rather steampunkish.
