Otherland Speculative Fiction Book Club
Philip Pullman's 2017 fantasy novel La Belle Sauvage is the first volume of the planned trilogy The Book of Dust. The story is set about twelve years before the start of "His Dark Materials", in a universe that is governed by the Magisterium, or the Church, who suppresses all heresy. What's adorably characteristic to Pullman's universe are the so-called "soul" daemons, animals who represent the soul of their humans and who swarm around them.
So what would your soul deamon be? And have you finished reading it yet? It's quite the delightful story!!!
AS ALWAYS we'll meet at 19.30 pm at the Otherland Bookshop and there's no registration needed. Please read the book, though!
