review Northern Lights Northern Lights Free download ´ 9 E her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel worldCan one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors This is Lyra a sa. the golden compass trilogy seems like a natural progression in christian literature yes it is christian literature the same way the chronicles of narnia are aslan is only a lion when the reader is about 10 or so in the united states after a point he unrepentantly becomes jesus and the four children are like the gospels or something and the story is somewhat ruined then because as an adult you can t just shoehorn jesus into a lion outfit without snickering a littlepullman however has solved this problem i can t continue without utterly spoiling the story for everyone who hasn t read it so consider yourselves warnedhe made jesus into a little girl even better he made jesus into a little girl who doesn t even know she s jesus now how s that for a new twist on the new testament the part that s particularly brilliant about it is that it actually worked lyra is never really anything like christ she just follows the path of his narrative first she has the absent father lord asrael is desperately involved in his own ideas so though he s not actually in heaven he may as well be wait a sec isn t this just dogma again sort of except dogma is really relevant to catholicism in particular rather than scriptures and instead of linda fiorentino who is kind of a mopey christ we get a 10 year old girl 10 year old girls are the best focal point for any story i ve been one for yearsand this is a perfect choice because she really never takes time to mope she doesn t miss her faith or wrestle with it she doesn t believe at all and therein lies the genius of pullman s work that has all the christians in a snit she s also the antichristwhy would he do thatbecause the bible does if you really take a look at the word antichrist it does not mean evil khristos from which christ is derived means anointed so what does antichrist really mean unanointed or that which is against the anointed there s a bunch of baggage on top of that meaning which is how we got those omen movies but at the heart of it it just means smeared with fat actually it means recognized by the divine but in ancient times we did that by smearing the recognized thing with the fat of a sacrificed animal or person and that is why we celebrate the crucifixion it was the point of christ s birth as if it wasn t obvious enough it s why he s referred to as the lambwow so this is heavy pullman has gone all the way back to the origins of the judeo christian faith and said this important guy was just the carrier of this magical stuff that we re obsessed with that we don t even use any it s like we re infected or poisoned by this idea we need an antidote we need an antichrist to show us how far we ve wandered from the truth which had nothing to do with trooping along after some guyand this explains why christians are so antagonized by the books they ve been following the beast for years without recognizing it the golden compass referred to in the book is the bible we ve all forgotten how to read and in its stead we ve rallied around the church which claims to help us understand the symbols but in reality it is the beast referred to the one which rose from rome with many heads that change over time so what really is the golden compass about it s about how to be human again how to regain an understanding of the world that doesn t rely on our fragile expectations for good and evil all it reuires is that you give up everything in order to discover what is important again and i don t know how christians could have missed that primary message

I don t love the BeatlesDucks as he is castigated by the seething massesI also don t love green vegetables punches to the face or going to the dentist though I don t think those revelatory disclosures will elicit much in the way of rage fueled attempts to slit my throat with the jagged edge of a broken CD compact disc kiddos look it up So why risk a severed jugular on the day before I m going to stuff myself so full of turkey that I ll have a snood coming out of my ear Well because it s the best way I can think of to articulate my feelings about The Golden CompassI don t LOVE the Beatles but I recognize their skill and talent and appreciate them for the impact they had on popular music There are Beatles songs that I enjoy I think I might have a Beatles album on my iPod though I ve never actually played it on my iPod But I m never going to suddenly say to myself Geez I really need to hear a Beatles song RIGHT NOW and rush off to listen to one Side note I do occasionally get an urge to listen to Yesterday but just the Boyz II Men versionso perhaps I m not the most ualified judge of musical uality on the planetIs Philip Pullman a Beatles level authorial entity Well no But he is a skilled writer with a gift for storytelling and world building He s a talented technician and stylist But I don t love The Golden Compass I appreciate that it s a well written and well conceived story but as agents revel in saying to me when I pitch them I just didn t connect with the material I can see why people ahem Kristin love this series and I certainly would not dissuade anyone who s interested in reading it from giving it a go It s well doneSomeone asked me as I was finishing this if I was going to check out the second book in the series but I think I ll Let It Be

review Northern Lights Northern Lights Free download ´ 9 Vage a schemer a liar and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want but what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the oth. 98171 I cleared my rating If that doesn t sufficiently refute the claim that I just wanted to give THE GOLDEN COMPASS 10 star then you re irrational and further discussion is pointless 2 I am a BOOK REVIEW BLOGGER That s what I do If you want to make cracks about being a trophy wife go right ahead but to insinuate that I would skim a book to have the minimum knowledge reuired to give the appearance of having read it so that I can give it a bad review bc reasons is an attack on my character and work ethic I m not some conservative religious zealot who think books with magic are sending our children straight to hell I don t have children I m not a Christian I do however have four nephews all under eight years old that I have already given HARRY POTTER and many many other similar books THE GOLDEN COMPASS not among them3 In regards to my perceived lack of faith in a child s intelligence I m baffled that you think that s the only issue Children aren t stupid They have good instincts Shame on youAre you going to tell me that children also have excellent impulse control That they re always rational That they aren t capable of making bad decisions when overwrought And am I also to assume that you all strictly adhered to the suggested age reuirements on books None of you were specifically informed that you read several grade levels ahead of your peers This isn t the simple issue some of you are trying to make it You MUST know I m a advocate for free thought for going against the grain for individuality vs hive mentality I believe it s important to teach children to uestion to think for themselvesBUTI feel this book crosses a line for its intended audience The two adults Lyra should be most dependent on are villains and whether or not there are good role models among the secondary cast of characters they are SECONDARY ultimately insignificant roles as evidenced when dollface takes off on her own bc her parents cannot be trusted and she knows better than they do The fact that it s true in her scenario is exactly what concerns meYou can draw a straight line through all the steps on the path to a child s inevitable conclusion that Adults are the Enemy and to do good to do right you cannot trust or obey themI think that s a very dangerous potentially harmful thing to teach a child You don t have to agree with me In fact the whole reason I m writing this years after I read the book is bc I didn t want to be that person who essentially outlines their own possibly contradictory review on someone else s post Bc those people suck FYI read between the linesI don t recommend this book for readers not in their teens Yes some children mature faster than others and especially if the child in uestion is your own you re the best judge of what is appropriate I would never tell anyone what to do with their children I am merely voicing a concern and suggesting that one might consider personally screening THE GOLDEN COMPASS before passing along to young impressionable minds This is my opinion If you are violently opposed to it I invite you to WRITE AND POST YOUR OWN REVIEW
