Reviews - What do customers think about Sally Y La Sombra Del Norte / the Shadow in the North?

Entretenido y emotivo  Jun 11, 2007
Lo que más me gusta de lo que escribe Philip Pullman es que logra condensar en sus relatos. Todo lo importante, todo lo interesante. Sus protagonistas son chicas, heroínas atractivas, fuertes e inteligentes que no dejan de ser chicas que se enamoran y necesitan de un compañero, de un igual. Los compañeros de estas chicas son masculinos viriles y al tiempo sensibles y muy complejos. Los malos, ¡son malos! No el malote que ríe a carcajadas con sus secuaces, no... son los malos con poder, que no creen que están haciendo ningún mal. Personajes que aborrecen al mundo y a las personas de tal modo que quieren "ayudar" cambiándolo radicalmente, y con radicalmente me refiero a realizar empresas realmente atroces e inhumanas. Además de los protagonistas cada uno de los personajes se presenta irremplazable, necesario, determinante y completo. Siempre hay una mascota o animal tan importante como un apersona.

En las historias de Pullman hay aventura, acción, misterio, horror, romance y drama, cada uno en su momento, cada momento auténticamente energizante, enervante o conmovedor. Es un escritor que no teme matar a sus personajes arrancándome con ello el llanto más profundo y sincero - y a veces lo odio por eso-. Pullman narra con muy alto nivel intelectual, no siente condescendencia por el lector, sus textos están llenos de guiños y referencias literarios y culturales.

Pullman revivió, para mi, el gusto y el placer por la narrativa "juvenil" de los clásicos como Stevenson, Dumas, Verne, Salgari...
