The Book Of Dust Volume 2 Review
In His Dark Materials it was religion and quantum physics, among other things (both themes resurface here).
You might have noticed that I haven’t said that The Book of Dust trilogy is a prequel despite the fact that as previously said is connected to His Dark Materials trilogy.
The first novel of The Book of Dust trilogy, La Belle Sauvage, is set twelve years before the first book of His Dark Materials.
In The Book of Dust the chief theme is one of the great remaining mysteries of science and metaphysics: consciousness.
