About the Author: Philip Pullman

In , acclaimed in the MOBI ò 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 years as a teacher while working on publishing books and numerous short stories Pullman has received many awards for The Tiger PDF/EPUB or his literature, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal for exceptional children s literature in , and the Carnegie of Carnegies in He is most famous for his His Dark Materials trilogy, a series of young adult fantasy novels which feature free thought themes The novels cast organized religion as the series villain Pullman told The New York Times in When you look at what CS Lewis Tiger in the ePUB ´ 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 EarthIn , 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 Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matterMore.

    Sally Lockhart is a rare woman in Victorian England She s a single mother, competent, independent, and a successful and prosperous business owner She has never been married, so when she is served with divorce papers, she cannot understand how such a mistake could be made It soon becomes clear it is not a mistake The details about her in the document are correct all except one She has never met the man claiming to be her husband, the man who wants to take custody of her daughter.I would n Sally Lockhart is a rare woman in Victorian England She s a single mother, competent, independent, and a successful and prosperous business owner She has never been married, so when she is served with divorce papers, she cannot understand how such a mistake could be made It soon becomes clear it is not a mistake The details about her in the document are correct all except one She has never met the man claiming to be her husband, the man who wants to take custody of her daughter.I would not have labeled this a YA book There is nothing juvenile about it It is a suspenseful Dickensian story of vengeance, greed, cruelty, and corruption, which vividly captures the social conflicts of the time The images of Victorian London are detailed and clear The contrasts between rich and poor, worker and owner are sharp The only YA aspect may be a carryover from the first book in the series, The Ruby in the Smoke, in which Sally is first introduced as a 16 year old orphan I didn t see that book as specifically YA either, though.My only criticism, and it s not a strong one, is that I thought Sally should have been a bit quicker on the uptake in identifying the real force behind her troubles I figured it out long before she did, but then I, as a reader, understand this is a novel and therefore must make sense Real life, of course, is not like that.I highly recommend this book to all readers, especially those fond of Victorian mysteries It s a great story

    The Tiger in the Well is now my favourite in these Sally Lockhart Mysteries It handles injustices against women and other vulnerable parties in such a way that made me furious I had to put this down once or twice because the ways in which Sally was disenfranchised from all her rights were so realistic and plausible While it s fiction, this could be the stories of many women through history Powerful man has vendetta against woman and decides to ruin her life And it brings the story from the The Tiger in the Well is now my favourite in these Sally Lockhart Mysteries It handles injustices against women and other vulnerable parties in such a way that made me furious I had to put this down once or twice because the ways in which Sally was disenfranchised from all her rights were so realistic and plausible While it s fiction, this could be the stories of many women through history Powerful man has vendetta against woman and decides to ruin her life And it brings the story from the first two volumes full circle.I definitely recommend these books if you like well written, diverse historical mysteries based in England but with international scope Oneleft though I ve heard Sally isn t the main characterso that will be very different from the first three

    Wonderful Pro feminist, pro socialist, pro humanist What is there not to like I learned a lot too, about the life and conditions of early Jewish immigrants in London What a story And thanks again to Anton Lesser for the brilliant narration.

    The third installment of the Sally Lockhart mysteries series is evencomplex than the other two entries It is also, unfortunately, a little too obvious, as I figured out the identity of the mysterious villain way before Sally did And if I figured it out, everyone figured it out.No matter, though, because Pullman still spins a decent yarn It s about 2 years since we last saw Sally, and she is now raising Harriet, the daughter she conceived with Frederick right before he died All seems to The third installment of the Sally Lockhart mysteries series is evencomplex than the other two entries It is also, unfortunately, a little too obvious, as I figured out the identity of the mysterious villain way before Sally did And if I figured it out, everyone figured it out.No matter, though, because Pullman still spins a decent yarn It s about 2 years since we last saw Sally, and she is now raising Harriet, the daughter she conceived with Frederick right before he died All seems to be well until Sally receives papers that state that she s being sued for divorce and custody of her child One problem Sally never married anyone The problem compounds when her alleged husband starts taking all of her assets.So, Sally has to discover the origin of the cruel plot hatched against her And, there s an interesting, but somewhat tangled subplot about Jewish immigrants and socialism in England But it all comes together.A worthy conclusion to this fabulous trilogy

    Sally Lockhart is a rare woman in Victorian England She s a single mother, competent, independent, and a successful and prosperous business owner She has never been married, so when she is served with divorce papers, she cannot understand how such a mistake could be made It soon becomes clear it is not a mistake The details about her in the document are correct all except one She has never met the man claiming to be her husband, the man who wants to take custody of her daughter.I would n Sally Lockhart is a rare woman in Victorian England She s a single mother, competent, independent, and a successful and prosperous business owner She has never been married, so when she is served with divorce papers, she cannot understand how such a mistake could be made It soon becomes clear it is not a mistake The details about her in the document are correct all except one She has never met the man claiming to be her husband, the man who wants to take custody of her daughter.I would not have labeled this a YA book There is nothing juvenile about it It is a suspenseful Dickensian story of vengeance, greed, cruelty, and corruption, which vividly captures the social conflicts of the time The images of Victorian London are detailed and clear The contrasts between rich and poor, worker and owner are sharp The only YA aspect may be a carryover from the first book in the series, The Ruby in the Smoke, in which Sally is first introduced as a 16 year old orphan I didn t see that book as specifically YA either, though.My only criticism, and it s not a strong one, is that I thought Sally should have been a bit quicker on the uptake in identifying the real force behind her troubles I figured it out long before she did, but then I, as a reader, understand this is a novel and therefore must make sense Real life, of course, is not like that.I highly recommend this book to all readers, especially those fond of Victorian mysteries It s a great story

    The Tiger in the Well is now my favourite in these Sally Lockhart Mysteries It handles injustices against women and other vulnerable parties in such a way that made me furious I had to put this down once or twice because the ways in which Sally was disenfranchised from all her rights were so realistic and plausible While it s fiction, this could be the stories of many women through history Powerful man has vendetta against woman and decides to ruin her life And it brings the story from the The Tiger in the Well is now my favourite in these Sally Lockhart Mysteries It handles injustices against women and other vulnerable parties in such a way that made me furious I had to put this down once or twice because the ways in which Sally was disenfranchised from all her rights were so realistic and plausible While it s fiction, this could be the stories of many women through history Powerful man has vendetta against woman and decides to ruin her life And it brings the story from the first two volumes full circle.I definitely recommend these books if you like well written, diverse historical mysteries based in England but with international scope Oneleft though I ve heard Sally isn t the main characterso that will be very different from the first three

    The third installment of the Sally Lockhart mysteries series is evencomplex than the other two entries It is also, unfortunately, a little too obvious, as I figured out the identity of the mysterious villain way before Sally did And if I figured it out, everyone figured it out.No matter, though, because Pullman still spins a decent yarn It s about 2 years since we last saw Sally, and she is now raising Harriet, the daughter she conceived with Frederick right before he died All seems to The third installment of the Sally Lockhart mysteries series is evencomplex than the other two entries It is also, unfortunately, a little too obvious, as I figured out the identity of the mysterious villain way before Sally did And if I figured it out, everyone figured it out.No matter, though, because Pullman still spins a decent yarn It s about 2 years since we last saw Sally, and she is now raising Harriet, the daughter she conceived with Frederick right before he died All seems to be well until Sally receives papers that state that she s being sued for divorce and custody of her child One problem Sally never married anyone The problem compounds when her alleged husband starts taking all of her assets.So, Sally has to discover the origin of the cruel plot hatched against her And, there s an interesting, but somewhat tangled subplot about Jewish immigrants and socialism in England But it all comes together.A worthy conclusion to this fabulous trilogy
