    About "Philip Pullman Leonid Gore"

    1. Philip Pullman Leonid Gore

      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

    1. A few days ago, I suddenly had the urge to reread this. On discovering it was £3 on , I couldn't resist I was a little less than pleased at not being able to get the edition of this I remember, but it's alright: only the cover is different. The illustrations, the layout, even the font is all the same, so that's alright.The story has stayed in my mind for at least ten years, now: clockwork hearts and the relentless tick of machinery driving the story on. The prologue used to chill me -- the sens [...]


    2. ایده داستان رو واقعا دوست داشتم، کلیتش خیلی خوب بود و به نظرم جا داشت که پرداخته بشهدو بخشش برام گنگ بود و گنگ مونداین که شاهزادهه از کجا سر و کله‌ش پیدا شد و این که چه طور آخرش پسر واقعی شدولی خیلی خوب بود در کل، باید بیشتر از پولمن بخونم ببینم می‌تونم کنار گیمن بذارمش یا نه.


    3. pro-cras-ti-nate (verb)delay or postpone action; put off doing something.ORIGIN late 16th cent.: from latinprocrastinat- 'deffered until tomorrow,' from the verb procrastinare, from pro- 'forward' + crastinus 'belonging to tomorrow'.Clockwork merupakan buku terbaik dari buku-buku Philip Pullman yang sudah gue baca. Lebih singkat daripada I was a rat! dan lebih simpel dari The fireworks maker's daughter.Buku ini menyentil gue banget. Yeah, I am Karl. The lazy bastard. A frikkin procrastinator for [...]


    4. I picked this book up on a whim at the thrift store today. I'd never read any of Pullman's 'other' stories, meaning the ones that are not part of the His Dark Materials trilogy, so I wanted to see what this would be like. From the description, it sounded very different than what it actually was. It was OK, but I had expected better. HDM isn't a favorite of mine, but it would be a lie to say that it didn't affect me. The characters in that book, and their connections with each other, really left [...]


    5. Don’t go into the novella-length fable Clockwork expecting something of the inestimable caliber of the His Dark Materials trilogy. I enjoyed this tale of a story told by a tavern’s fireside that comes eerily to life. However, while worth reading, it’s not up to Bill Pullman’s usual high standard.


    6. I downloaded this from Audible this morning and listened to it while shoveling snow, wishing I had a clockwork automaton to do that for me.Philip Pullman's Clockwork is a fairy tale set in Germany in (presumably) the 19th century, in a world where clockwork devices can be made so intricately precise that they can, if constructed by a particularly ingenious clockmaker, pass for little boys. There are elements of Pinocchio, Faust, and any number of Hans Christian Andersen fables in this story that [...]


    7. Pinjaman dari Hilda, saya suka buku ini. Semakin kagum dengan Philip Pullman, kali ini seakan saya diajak baca bareng dengan beliau berkat bantuan kolom berisi gambar dan ucapan yang ditujukan kepada kita. Top banget deh!Pelajaran yang bisa kita ambil kali ini dari buku peraih silver medal :- jangan jadi orang yang pesimis! nanti bakalan mati ketebas pedang!- tidak ada seniman yang bertemperamen kasar, itu murni karena orangnya saja yang dodol.- jangan takut gagal karena kalau kita takut gagal k [...]


    8. Clockwork, Or All Wound Up‘Tick, tock, tick, tock! Some stories are like that. Once you have wound them up, nothing will stop them; they move on forward till they reach their destined end’….This is unquestionably one of those books that you just can’t put down. With a cliff-hanger on every page, the suspense is tangible throughout and, at times, almost unbearable. The author alludes to a series of tragic events from the offset with his ominous announcement that, ‘no matter how much the [...]


    9. WOW de BEST dah LOVE it SO MUCHSerius, speechless aku mau ngomentarin nih buku, AMAZING. Dua plot yang seolah nggak nyambung kok bisa jadi satu? Ini buku fantasy, jadi lupakan beberapa kejanggalan. Ini buku anak-anak, jadi temani putra-putri-ponakan Anda ketika kebetulan membaca novel ini. Terangkan hal-hal yang perlu diterangkan, meskipun secara khusus Philip Pullman telah memberikan wejangan-wejangan-nya dalam kotak yang ada di beberapa halamannya. Beberapa terkesan menggurui, terkesan seperti [...]


    10. تیک تاک، تیک تاک! بعضی داستان‌ها این جوری‌اند. وقتی کوک‌شان کنی دیگر هیچ‌چیز نمی‌تواند جلوشان را بگیرد…هنرمند واقعی سرگرم کارش می شود و جنجال به پا نمی کند.ما می توانیم آینده را در دست بگیریم همان طور که یک ساعت را کوک می کنیم. به خودت بگو: من در این رقابت برنده خواهم ش- اول خ [...]


    11. YA Horror that has some very cool, creepy pictures and some great imagery. As a result, there are probably some parents who thought it was a middle grade story and got this for their kids only to get upset by the horror aspect.You could easily read it in one afternoon, as this is pretty much a short story with slick presentation. If I had paid for this I might be upset at its short short short legnth, but I got it from the library and enjoyed it during the afternoon it took to read.As far as Pul [...]


    12. I wasn't expecting this book to knit together as cleverly as it does. The idea of it being a horror book also put me off for a while as this is not a genre I typically enjoy. I decided to at least give the book a chance as I'm such a huge fan of Pullman's other works. I have not been disappointed.Update: 2017I have now read the book as a shared read with my Year 5s who loved it. It has been the focus of most of our literacy work this half term. Most importantly, the class were hooked on the stor [...]


    13. This book is a work of pure brilliance! I have never read anything like this, and I doubt I will ever again. The concept felt genuine, and execution was perfect. Whole book captured a bizarre atmosphere. Artwork worked towards making it darker. Its as real as it is a fairy tale. If you ever wanted to start with Philip Pullman's works, this is a nice choice.


    14. Clockwork is about two storys. The story that Fritz writes and the story that Karl is living. Fritz is a writer. The story that he writes is about a prince and his strugle with life. Karl's life is being pulled this way and that. One day he is depressed and the next he is almost evil. So a lot is going on. Then the stories are blending and that is when things start to get a little crazy. You have this and that happing and then one of the "fictional" chaters from Fritz's story appears in Karl's l [...]


    15. pesannya adalah:Jangan cuma duduk diam dan mengeluh bahwa pekerjaan tak kunjung selesai. Berusahalah agar otak dan tubuhmu bergerak dan bekerja. Berikan yang terbaik tanpa terlalu peduli dengan hasilnya. Karena hasil akan berbanding lurus dengan usahamu. Semoga Sukses!


    16. Basiceve ilustracije su uobicajeno predivne, ali prica je mlaka. A to je ipak Pullman, od njega ocekujem puno


    17. If Edgar Allan Poe and Mary Shelly got together and collaborated on a book; this is what they would come up with!!!!!!


    18. Clockwork could be a Christmas read as well as an Halloween one. It's both a fairytale and ghost story, with references to classics like Faust or Pinocchio, and once again with a really decent female character (and another one who is the shallowest ever). It's also a story about storytelling, craft in general, and responsibility. It's quite a moral tale but not a moralistic one, and it's still a really fun, quick read.


    19. I liked this short story. The characters were definitely unique and the "story within a story" concept worked in this case. I also liked how the two stories converged at the end. The narration was very good. I recommend this in audio format; the narrator did a good job conveying the eerie appearance of the doctor in the middle of the story telling scene.



    20. به عنوان یک قصهٔ یک ساعته، خوب و راضی‌کننده بود. خیلی خوب و هیجان‌انگیز شروع شد ولی نیمهٔ دومش معمولی بود.


    21. Its a great story, and its about stories, and Pullman tell us he cares " it is, as well as I can tell it." So we should care too."Once upon a time in a little German town." It's a riff on fairytales, and time too. He raises the bar though when our inset narrator's story is hijacked by a new character ( We had been expecting it but nevertheless.) whose physical appearance brings a change in pace and darkening of mood straight out of a 19th century German novella - see Gottfried Keller : "A villag [...]


    22. 4.5 Me ha encantado. Es un autor que me wncsnta y qje en esta ocasión no me ha decepcionado. Es un libro genial y que se lee muy rápido. Me ha encantado como cuenta una historia dentro de la historia y luego lo mezcla todo y consigue atrapar al lector hasta que termina el libro. Impresionante. Muy recomendable.


    23. I absolutely loved this book, the first one I have ever read by Pullman. It is so beautifully written. The story is gripping and I loved the way reality and story telling were interwoven. Wow, powerful book!


    24. Pullman presents a rather dark fairy tale with some genuinely creepy moments, rewards for the virtuous, and punishment for the lazy.


    25. Přečteno na jeden zátah. Bravurně napsáno, má šanci oslovit i dospělého. Škoda, že mě tak neohromila i dvě pokračování Zlatého kompasu.



    26. Ini adalah buku kedua karya Philip Pullman yang saya baca setelah Putri Si Pembuat Kembang Api. Ada yang terasa khas pada kedua dongeng Pullman ini: ia bercerita seperti tengah ngobrol dengan pembacanya. Contohnya begini : "Beberapa kisah berjalan seperti itu. Begitu kau memutarnya, takkan ada yang bisa menghentikan…" (hlm.7)Kata "kau" yang dipakainya untuk "berdialog" dengan pembacanya, menimbulkan rasa keakraban yang hangat; seolah-olah ia melibatkan kita dalam dongeng-dongengnya. Saya suka [...]


    27. Annotation: On a snowy night in little German town pub a story is told by the young novelist Fritz. Fritz story becomes a reality when one of the characters suddenly appears.Review: On a snowy night in a little German town, the clock maker, Herr Ringelmann, and his young apprentice Karl enter the local pub. This particular town in Germany is famous for clockwork. Like most German towns, this town also has many traditions and stories. On the night before Karl's final clockwork is revealed to the [...]


    28. Pullman’s tale of clockwork, inevitability, and suspense is as wound up and complex as the clockwork figures which drive the narrative and meta-narratives. For KS2 readers whom are able to access the story clockwork will be both a challenging read, and excellent introduction to more complex literature. Clockwork revolves around two interconnected stories which eventually spiral together into one conclusion. Firstly there is the ‘present’ set principally in a late night tavern, the second n [...]
