Lyra’s Oxford takes place after the events at the end of the His Dark Materials Trilogy (AKA The Golden Compass series). I’ll admit I felt a little heartsick when I realized where this fit in the timeline (I found the ending to be more bitter than sweet, personally).

This short story reads a bit more like a child’s book than I remember the series being (though admittedly it has been awhile), and didn’t quite suck me in like The Collectors did. On the bright side it comes with a wonderful map that can be pulled out. I’m sure this is something that collectors would like (my reference to the other short story being completely unintentional here).

I think the most quotable line in the story will give any potential readers a good feel for what they’re in for: “Everything means something,” Lyra said severely, “We just have to find out how to read it.”

About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
