THE SUBTLE KNIFE
In its review of THE SUBTLE KNIFE, THE INDEPENDENT praised Pullman as "an author who ranges across the spectrum of story-telling and engages the imagination of adults and children alike," noting his ability as "a wonderfully fluent storyteller" (13). THE SUBTLE KNIFE follows the events of THE GOLDEN COMPASS, introducing readers to broader questions of physics, philosophy, and destiny through the eyes of young Lyra as she travels across universes. An attractive copy.
