    1. Philip Pullman S. Saelig Gallagher

      In 1946, acclaimed 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 23 years as a teacher while working on publishing 13 books and numerous short stories Pullman has received many awards for his literature, including the prestigious Carnegie Medal for exceptional children s literature in 1996, and the Carnegie of Carnegies in 2006 He is most famous for his His Dark Materials trilogy, a series of young adult fantasy novels which feature freethought themes The novels cast organized religion as the series villain Pullman told The New York Times in 2000 When you look at what C.S Lewis 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 Earth.In 2007, 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 2002 Pullman has received many threats by ardent believers over his choice of subject matter.More ffrf news day dayitems itenpedia wiki Philip_Prandomhouse features p.on Philip Pullman db name nm1099514

    7. The Firework-Makers DaughterPhilip Pullman I knew of the author from ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy, though I have not read them myself.This was one of the quickest books I have ever read, I know it’s not that long, but I couldn’t help myself. The story is set in a far off country in a past time, Malaysia around 1900 I would guess, but it isn’t really significant. The story is exciting throughout, engaging the imagination in so many ways, visualising demons, spirits, jungle, or volcano, [...]


    8. Setelah selesai mengikuti kutipan2 luar biasa tidak penting dari buku2 terkenal termasuk kutipan narsis diri sendiri di Spring Heeled Jack, lagi-lagi g disuguhi hal yang tidak biasa oleh Pak Pullman. G tergelak melihat penamaan tokoh sampai setting tempatnya. Awalnya g kira ini cerita yang mengambil setting di China, tiba2 Chulak mengatakan mata uangnya rupee. Pikir g "loh sejak kapan China pake Rupee?" Sebenernya seh g mulai curiga dari awal munculnya gajah putih bernama Hamlet.Ow ternyata?! se [...]


    9. I really liked this book and I could not put it down. There is a really good emphasis on the use of sound when describing each setting in the story. It is also a good story to use when looking at journeys. This is because of the obvious journey Lila takes to find the Fire Fiend and also the journey that both Lila and Chulak take in themselves. There is also the element of acquiring knowledge in this story. However, this knowledge is not necessarily what the characters originally set out to seek [...]

    16. The Firework-Maker’s Daughter is a short children’s book written by Phillip Pullman and it’s a little gem. Pullman pulls off a perfect recipe of magic, adventure and pure fun in this sparkling little fairy tale.Lila is the daughter of the talented firework maker Lachland. All Lila wants is to become a true firework maker herself, but to do so she must make the perilous journey to the fire-fiend Razvani and bring back some Royal Sulphur. What’s worse, she sets off before her father can te [...]


    17. Can be read to any age but more likely to be aimed at year 3 and above to read alone. I did enjoy this book but I think there was little for children in it. The talking elephant will hold some enjoyment for them but other than that I feel that the content may be a little dull for young children. I would not recommend it unless used in a project for art or maybe drama.
