This review is from: The Rough Guide to Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" (Rough Guides Reference Titles) (Paperback)
Having seen the film "The Golden Compass" ( based on the book the "The Northern Lights" - 1st book in the trilogy) I wished to know more of the overall story - which may or may not be committed to film.

I then enjoyed reading the trilogy "His Dark Materials" ( see seperate review) but wanted to delve more deeply into the thinking behind the book(s).

For those wishing to get further background to the books , the story ( an apparent orphan discovering the identity her parents and the world of adults in a semi victorian universe starting in Oxford - with a repressive and inquisatorial religious system ), the science ( parallel universes , "dust" and dark matter) and the history ( comments from Pullman himself), this provides an excellent pocket guide at a reasonable price and indicates other sources ( books , websites) where more information can be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect, 24 Feb 2008
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" (Rough Guides Reference Titles) (Paperback)
I have been searching for a good HDM companion book for a long time, and after reading lots, I can safely say this is by far the best. It covers everything in all the detail you would want, and it packs so much information in. If you are looking for a good companion, get this one.
