The Secret Commonwealth - The Book Of Dust: Book 2 (Paperback): Philip Pullman The Secret Commonwealth - The Book Of Dust: Book 2 (Paperback)
Philip Pullman; Illustrated by Christopher Wormell 1
R320 R256 Discovery Miles 2 560 Save R64 (20%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey.

It is almost ten years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford's Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, bestselling His Dark Materialssequence.

Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child . . .

The second volume of Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her daemon Pantalaimon, forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined, and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world that they had no idea existed. Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood, now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is right.

Theirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary, and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search for what is lost - a city haunted by daemons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust.

The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you. This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers.

On War (Paperback, New): George Bernard Shaw On War (Paperback, New)
George Bernard Shaw; Foreword by Philip Pullman
R225 Discovery Miles 2 250 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Nobel laureate, Oscar winner, and author of more than 50 plays, Bernard Shaw is perhaps as renowned for his political views as for his awe-inspiring artistic output. A brand new selection of his writings on war bring once more to the forefront the polemical work of one of the most outspoken commentators of the early 20th century. As a cofounder of the Fabian society, an equal rights campaigner, and an ardent socialist, Shaw was never known to shy away from controversy, and was accused of treason for the 1914 publication "Common Sense About the War," in which he affront patriots and the government alike. His vehemently anti-war stance was almost prophetic in its progressive nature, and holds particular resonance in today's climate of unrest.
