HASH(0x925de198) out of 5 stars Superb stuff 7 Sept. 2005
By April McKenna - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
An excellent guide to a challenging series. The best bit is an A-Z of all the names, places and concepts. I learned a lot about Blake, CS Lewis and other people Pullman is influenced by. This is a very readable guide, and could also be useful for anyone writing a paper on the His Dark Materials books.
HASH(0x923f88f4) out of 5 stars A well done guide to the persons, places, and references of Philip Pullman's Dark Materials 24 Sept. 2009
By Michael A. Duvernois - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're weak on your Milton, Blake, Lewis, and Elliot, this will help out with the references. It's a fun read, or a useful reference, your choice. Lance Parkins is best known for his work, fiction and non-fiction, involving Dr. Who. Mark Jones I hadn't known anything about before seeing this book, but he seems to be a well-known writer of guidebooks and online materials.
