The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust, Volume Two – Philip Pullman – 28.02.22

I went to see the National Theatre Live recording of The Belle Sauvage which is the stage play adaptation of the Book of Dust Volume one, and it made me want to re-read volume two. I just love the whole world of Lyra and Pantalaimon as told in Philip Pullman’s books and I especially love this darker more serious chapter in the story (like I loved the first part of The Deathly Hallows).

There is lots of political and civil unrest all over the world (sound familiar?) and Lyra and Pantalaimon have separated – they are both on a quest to find each other again and sort out the reason for the rift between them. Travel is dangerous for both of them and they have many scary adventures.

The book ends on a cliff edge, and I’m frustrated that there is still no release date for the much awaited third and final book in the series.
