A Year of READING Dangerously: #8 His Dark Materials


Thanks to Maggie for another review. This time she tackles #8: His Dark Materials (Series) by Philip Pullman

HisDarkMaterialsUS

Of the book she says:

It was inventive and has strong female characters. Particularly in the Subtle Knife the author has you consider the viewpoint of the outsider in our world (a recurring theme in a lot of these books.) [– Maggie]

Reasons why it might be banned: Violence, Occultism, Religious Viewpoint, and (possibly) Political Viewpoint

His Dark Materials

She recommends the books for readers 11 and above.
