Once again, I'm in for a long wait to finish an epic fantasy series. Warning: this book ends on a cliffhanger. Philip Pullman has a place in my prayers next to RBG.

I'm especially anxious to find out if he's going to bring Will back in book three. My guess is no, but I hold some small hope. I'm not sure how I feel about Lyra and Malcolm. ( )

While [b:La Belle Sauvage|34128219|La Belle Sauvage (The Book of Dust, #1)|Philip Pullman|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1498930382l/34128219._SX50_.jpg|14190696] was a HDM prequel following 11 year old Malcolm as he rescues baby Lyra, The Secret Commonwealth takes place twenty years after LBS and seven after The Amber Spyglass. Lyra is 20, and she and Pantalaimon have had a falling out due to her growing skepticism and loss of wonder.

I felt like there were some solid slights at the 'rationalist' types (was reminded of Dawkins and his ilk with Talbot), and given the perception that HDM is anti-religious, I found that interesting.

Like the first Book of Dust, The Secret Commonwealth also describes an attempted sexual assault and I don't feel like it was necessary.

This book ends on a cliffhanger, which felt like it quickly came to (honestly though, how did some of the characters physically make it to [end location]??) so I feel a little whiplashed.

Overall I liked it, but would like the finale of this story. ( )

This is enjoyable but ultimately is the middle of a trilogy so feels a bit incomplete. It jumps forward significantly (from La Belle Sauvage) to Lyra as an adult student at Oxford, slowly finding out more about the events of that book. We learn a lot more about daemons and their connection to humans, and the action moves across Europe and Asia, but it goes on too long and ends a bit abruptly. Looking forward to the final section though. ( )

I am returning this half-read to the library. It’s unpleasant and feels rushed and pointless. I don’t buy a single plot point. And eewwwww to the love interest, nope nope.
Loved the trilogy, and actually La Belle Sauvage was the first Pullman I ever read, inspiring me to read more. I’m glad I didn’t start with this one, or I’d have missed those. ( )

The first word that left my mouth when I finished reading this book was DAMN!! 600 pages only to reach ...what? Not a conclusion, but a pause, kind of like when the power fails 5 minutes before the end of a show. But once again, Pullman has developed a world of suspense and philosophy that is dense and compulsively readable. Three characters’ lives are inextricably intertwined: Malcolm Polstead, the scholar who had rescued Lyra when she was a baby, in events described in “La Belle Sauvage,” the first book in this second His Dark Materials trilogy; Lyra’s daemon Pantalaimon, from whom she is now able to separate; and Lyra herself, who is finding her way across Europe and Asia, to seek what she has lost and to face what is likely her destiny. It has always been clear, in the original trilogy and in these two volumes, that Lyra has some monumental purpose, the power to break open all that the religious authority holds sacred, to bring about a spiritual revolution, but that purpose has not been defined, not in 5 thick volumes. Her mission is always endangered, always precarious, but she is always protected, always finds a way to overcome these obstacles. It is a familiar story, but no less gripping in this iteration. It has been a long time since I read the original trilogy, and just as I did before “La Belle Sauvage,” I re-read some synopses to remind me of where it left off. But, where “Sauvage” was a prequel, this is a sequel, taking place almost 10 years after “The Subtle Knife” ended. It was a frustrating place for this book to end, just as some things are on the verge of resolution, but in the same moment it introduces the next layer of complication for Lyra’s quest. So, I shall settle in for another long wait! ( )

The Secret Commonwealth is a book whose political signification is much closer to the surface than in earlier work: both the refugee crisis and the current state of democracy are repeatedly referenced. There's something really interesting going on here: by interjecting familiar real-world concerns into a well-loved fiction universe, Pullman gives them added urgency, powerful resonance. A scene in which a ferry capsizes a boat of refugees is almost unreadably tragic; doubly so when we see it through the eyes of Lyra, with whom many of us have grown up. [...]

It's darker and more dangerous than much YA fiction, but there was nothing here that my 11-year-old couldn't handle – indeed he raced through it quicker than I did; loved it, if possible, even more. [...] That Pullman is our best children's author is clear; The Secret Commonwealth establishes him as one of our greatest writers, full stop.
