The His Dark Materials Readalong is hosted by Andrea at The Overstuffed Bookcase and Jessie at The Daily Bookmark. We’ll have discussion questions, reviews, and a giveaway! Go here for more information, or here for the list of all the HDM Readalong posts.
Hi, everyone! I’m quite a bit behind, but here are my answers to the questions Jessie at The Daily Bookmark posted for Chapters 1-7 of The Subtle Knife:
1. In the beginning of The Subtle Knife, we’re introduced to Will. What do you think of our heroes, Will and Lyra as a pair? They have such different personalities – Lyra, a little scatter-brained, willful and independent and Will, responsible, somber and fully aware. Do their contrasting personalities help them in their quest or hinder it?
2. Lyra says that she trusts Will because she learns from the alethiometer that he’s a murderer. Why do you suppose this is? What benefits could a murderer have over any other sort of companion?
So there are my answers for this discussion. Great questions, Jessie! Everyone can feel free to leave your own answers in the comments, or if you write your answers on your own blog, leave me the link in the comments and I’ll add your post to our master list! And be sure to stop by here again tomorrow for my questions for Chapters 8-15 of The Subtle Knife!
