The Magical Worlds of Philip Pullman

“David Colbert’s examination of His Dark Materials is intelligent and perceptive and full of good sense—by which I mean that he’s seen many of the things I put there to be seen, and got them in what seems to me the right balance. You can trust what he says about it. What’s more, he writes well. This is a good guide.”
—Philip Pullman

On every page of the His Dark Materials novels, Pullman and his characters confront questions of religion, science, the supernatural, and, ultimately, what it means to be human. This book answers many of the questions that have been in readers’ minds ever since Will and Lyra exploded into their lives.
