About this deal

She is forced to move by Werner Hammond, the new Master of Jordan College, and protects Hassall's belongings from the Magisterium agents who ransack her rooms.

With it he sticks to the wall pictures, notes, posters, reminders, postcards, book jackets, anything that will stay there. He spent part of his childhood in Australia, where he first met the wonders of comics, and grew to love Superman and Batman in particular.

The passage feels slightly dated, as though it was written in accordance with ideas about consent and power dynamics that were in vogue 10 years ago but are no longer considered conventional wisdom.

The shed contains two comfortable chairs (one for writing in, one for sitting at the computer in), several hundred books, a six-foot-long stuffed rat which took a part in his play Sherlock Holmes and the Limehouse Horror, a guitar, a saxophone, as well as the computer, decorated with dozens of brightly coloured artificial flowers attached to it by Blu-Tack. It felt clear to me that this was aimed at an older audience than His Dark Materials, which is not to say the older books were not an immensely rewarding read for adults. The book follows several events in different locations (including Constantinople, Prague, Smyrna and Wittenberg) as well as organisations (the Magisterium, La Maison Juste and the brotherhood of the holy purpose) and several other minor characters ( Simon Talbot and Gottfried Brande).There is an incredibly brutal and much talked about attempted rape scene which certainly blots out much of the niceties of childhood innocence and adolescent love from the earlier books.
