A quick, fun read. Lacking in any real depth or character development though. ( )

Would not recommend this on it's own but in that it reminds me of the fun we've had with Lyra and her world before... yes. ( )

An intriguing little book I found in a bargin bin at Dymocks.
A refresing and interesting short story, just long enough for a bus trip.
I haven't read any of Philip Pullman's work.
I'll look out for 'His Dark Materials' trilogy now. ( )

Brief short story featuring Lyra Silvertongue set in Oxford about two years after The Amber Spyglass, which is dips back into the Dark Materials universe. The hardback edition has a lovely pullout map of Lyra’s Oxford, copious small illustrations and copies of other items that link into the previous books. ( )

Short short story about Lyra after trilogy.

In this tiny, tantalizing sequel to the trilogy ''His Dark Materials,'' Philip Pullman is flying without a net -- or, rather, without the help of such flamboyant creations as a knife that can cut through worlds and a machine that can reveal truth from lies.

'...Oxford, where the real and the unreal jostle in the streets; where North Parade is in the south and South Parade is in the north, where Paradise is lost under a pumping station; where the river mists have a solvent and vivifying effect on the stone of the ancient buildings, so that the gargoyles of Magdalen College climb down at night and fight with those from Wykeham, or the fish under the bridges, or simply change their expressions overnight; Oxford, where windows open into other worlds...'
Oscar Baedecker, The Coasts of Bohemia 
First words
Lyra didn't often climb out of her bedroom window these days.
