Interesting TimesTerry Pratchett: Interesting Times (A discworld novel)

Interesting Time is a fantasy, an installment of Terry Pratchett's famed 'Discworld's series. Pratchett is easily the genre's best satirist, creating a magnificant world that he describes as a flat, circular planet that rests on the back of four elephants, which in turn are standing on the back of a giant space travelling turtle.
This particular novel can be read as a stand-alone and with only the loss of missing a few references made in past novels. Pratchett centres his story arcs among a wide assortment of colorful, original characters, and in Interesting Times he returns us to a story of one of his best creations, Rincewind, possibly the worst wizard to ever live. This novel, like all the other installments in the series is full of unequaled word play, witty humor, and tremendous allegorical examples.


 


 


 


A Long Way DownNick Hornby: A Long Way Down

Their plans for death in solitude, however, are ruined when they meet. The novel recounts their misadventures as they decide to come down from the roof alive - however temporarily that may be.


 


 


 


 


The Jane Austen Book ClubKaren Joy Fowler: The Jane Austen Book Club

The Jane Austen Book Club, as the title suggests, centers around six members of a book club that discusses Jane Austen's novels. The book has six chapters, with each chapter having a different member of the group leading the discussion about one of Jane Austen's six novels (plot synopses of her novels are provided at the back of this book). The novels aren't as important as the book group, five women and one man, who all bring a different perspective to the group. As their own stories and interactions unravel, Karen Joy Fowler's novel illuminates the power and effect books have on all of our lives. The Jane Austen Book Club has received many glowing reviews with the New York Times saying, "On its surface,  the novel is a tidy number, a perfectly cut and polished little gem with just enough facets. But that's not the half of it. This exquisite novel is bigger and more ambitious than it appears. It's that rare book that reminds us what reading is all about."

Alexander McCall Smith: The Sunday Philosophy Club

images/konyvajanlo/08aprilis/philosophy_club.jpgIn his new mystery series, Alexander McCall Smith has moved a long way from his comfort zone --- nearly 6,000 miles in fact, a number that represents the distance from Gaborone, Botswana to Edinburgh, Scotland. Botswana, as many readers surely know, is the setting for Smith's immensely popular No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series while Edinburgh is home to Smith's latest undertaking, THE SUNDAY PHILOSOPHY CLUB, billed as an "Isabel Dalhousie mystery."
Isabel Dalhousie, a quiet woman of independent means and a certain age, seems an unlikely gumshoe. As the editor of The Review of Applied Ethics, Isabel would seem more at home in a university philosophy department than dealing with the sordid details of murder most foul. But we, as Isabel would certainly agree, do not always choose our circumstances; at times they choose us.
In Isabel's case, circumstances cause her to witness an unfortunate death, a young man's fall from a symphony hall balcony. "Her first thought, curiously, was of Auden's poem on the fall of Icarus. Such events, said Auden, occur against a background of people going about their ordinary business. They do not look up and see the boy falling from the sky. I was talking to a friend, she thought. I was talking to a friend and the boy fell out of the sky." Isabel decides she has a moral duty to investigate the circumstances of the young man's death, being as she would have been the last person he saw before his death.

Alexander McCall Smith: In the Company of Cheerful Ladies

images/konyvajanlo/08aprilis/cheerful_ladies.jpgPrecious Ramotswe, that cheerful Botswanan private investigator of 'traditional build', is now married to Mr J.L.B. Matekoni of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors. The Agency is busy, but Mma Ramotswe cannot ignore the plea which is made by a woman who comes to her with a tale of particular misfortune. Unfortunately, her attempts to help are interrupted by a close encounter between her tiny white van and a bicycle, and by a spectacular disagreement between her assistant, Mma Makutsi, and one of the apprentices at the garage. This apprentice has found a fancy girlfriend who drives a Mercedes-Benz. How can he be rescued from his folly? And as for Mma Makutsi, she has found a dancing class, and a man who may not be able to dance very well, but who admires her greatly. And all of this happens against a background of quiet sessions of bush tea, and of a land that stretches out forever under mile upon mile of empty sky. . .

 
Alexander McCall Smith: Tears of the Giraffe

images/konyvajanlo/08aprilis/tearsofgiraffe.jpgThe second book in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series
Following on from the brilliant The No.1 Ladies' Detective agency Tears of the Giraffe charts the further adventures of Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's only - and finest - female private detective.
It's going to take all her intuition and eminent sensibility for Precious to crack her hardest case yet: the decade-old disappearance of an American on the edge of the Kalahari. And if that wasn't enough, there are plenty of matters closer to home to concern her: her highly talented secretary, Mma Makutsi, eager to be promoted to detective; the unscrupulous maid of her husband-to-be, the wonderful Mr J.L.B. Matekoni; and the sudden - and unexpected - increase in her family by not one, but two.

Hans Christian Andersen: The Little Match Girl

images/konyvajanlo/07december/andresen.jpgAndersen's tale about a little girl who's afraid to go home because she hasn't sold enough matches is a classic. The little girl, bareheaded and barefoot, curls up in a corner, lighting match after match to warm herself. In the flames she sees visions; in the final one, her grandmother appears and lifts the little girl into heaven. With muted blues, grays and browns, Isadora captures the mood of a snowy Victorian winter reminiscent of Dickens's A Christmas Carol. With these illustrations, coupled with superb book design, the artist has surpassed even the splendid art in her previous books.

 
 
Charles Dickens: The Christmas Books

images/konyvajanlo/07december/dickens.jpgThis is an ideal Christmas present, to give or receive. It includes Dickens's five most popular Christmas tales: The Chimes, The Haunted Man, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, and `the greatest little book in the world', A Christmas Carol. The texts are taken from the 1868 Charles Dickens Edition, corrected by the author himself.
The classic tale by Charles Dickens of tight-fisted, cold-hearted Scrooge who undergoes a transformation at Christmas. The ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future guide Scrooge to a better knowledge of what Christmas truly means.

 
 
 
 
 
Karl-Josef Kuschel: Das Weihnachten der Dichter: Große Texte von Thomas Mann bis Reiner Kunze

images/konyvajanlo/07december/kruschel.jpgEs sind die großen Stimmen der Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts zum Thema Weihnachten, die Karl-Josef Kuschel hörbar macht (Thomas Mann, Bert Brecht, Kurt Tucholsky, Erich Kästner, Else Lasker-Schüler, Johannes Bobrowski, Ilse Aichinger, Peter Huchel, Heinrich Böll, Kurt Marti, Erich Fried, Reiner Kunze). Jede dieser Stimmen bringt etwas in uns zum Klingen, auf das wir an Weihnachten nicht verzichten möchten. Sei es die Utopie, von der unsere Welt zuweilen weiter entfernt scheint denn je, sei es der Blick für die Doppelbödigkeit der Wirklichkeit, für unsere Inszenierungen und Kulissen gerade an Weihnachten. Auch die Aufrüttelung aus der Idylle gehört dazu. Es braucht die Spannung der großen Worte von Frieden, Freude und Gnade zur Realität ausgegrenzter, zerstörter Existenz. So kann man auch heute Weihnachten feiern.

 
 
James Krüss: Die Weihnachtsmaus

images/konyvajanlo/07december/kruss.jpgDie Weihnachtsmaus ist sonderbar
(sogar für die Gelehrten),
Denn einmal nur im ganzen Jahr
entdeckt man ihre Fährten.

Mit Fallen und mit Rattengift
kann man die Maus nicht fangen.
Sie ist, was diesen Punkt betrifft,
noch nie ins Garn gegangen.

Mark Haddon: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

images/konyvajanlo/07oktober/haddon.jpgThe novel won the 2003 Whitbread Book of the Year and the 2004 Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best First Book. Its title is a quotation of a remark made by the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1894 short story "Silver Blaze".
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger's Syndrome. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

 

Roald Dahl: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

images/konyvajanlo/07oktober/dahl.jpgFor the first time in a decade, Willy Wonka, the reclusive and eccentric chocolate maker, is opening his doors to the public - well, five members of the public to be exact. The lucky five who find a Golden Ticket in their Wonka chocolate bars will receive a private tour of the factory, given by Mr. Wonka himself. For young Charlie Bucket, this a dream come true. And, when he finds a dollar bill in the street, he can't help but buy two Wonka's Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delights - even though his impoverished family could certainly use the extra dollar for food. But as Charlie unwraps the second chocolate bar, he sees the glimmer of gold just under the wrapper! The very next day, Charlie, along with his unworthy fellow winners Mike Teavee, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, and Augustus Gloop, steps through the factory gates to discover whether or not the rumors surrounding the Chocolate Factory and its mysterious owner are true. What they find is that the gossip can't compare to the extraordinary truth, and for Charlie, life will never be the same again. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, another unforgettable masterpiece from the legendary Roald Dahl, never fails to delight, thrill, and utterly captivate.

Roddy Doyle: Paddy Clarke ha ha ha

images/konyvajanlo/07oktober/doyle.jpgRoddy Doyle is a master of describing the Irish. In this book he gives the word to a 10-year old boy, and never lets him down using a 'von oben' perspective. Doyle has captured the mind and thoughts, worries and happy moments of this young boy in a most astonishing way. It makes me wonder if it really isn't at least a half autobiographical book.
Boys of that age can be really cruel, and Paddy Clarke is no exception. Teasing, bullying and fights are part of everyday life. It is a matter of survival, to never show any sign of weakness. But when there is trouble at home it isn't always easy to be strong. Paddy tries his best to repair his parents' marriage that is falling apart a little more each day. If he can stay awake all night they won't fight...
This book provides a close and unsentimental look at a young boy growing up fast, and it also gives a good look at Ireland through a 10-year-old's eyes. Read it. You won't be sorry.

Frank McCourt: Teacher Man

images/konyvajanlo/07oktober/mccourt.jpgNearly a decade ago Frank McCourt became an unlikely star when, at the age of sixty-six, he burst onto the literary scene with Angela's Ashes, the Pulitzer Prize -- winning memoir of his childhood in Limerick, Ireland. Then came 'Tis, his glorious account of his early years in New York.
Now, here at last, is McCourt's long-awaited book about how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer. Teacher Man is also an urgent tribute to teachers everywhere. In bold and spirited prose featuring his irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty, McCourt records the trials, triumphs and surprises he faces in public high schools around New York City. His methods anything but conventional, McCourt creates a lasting impact on his students through imaginative assignments (he instructs one class to write "An Excuse Note from Adam or Eve to God"), singalongs (featuring recipe ingredients as lyrics), and field trips (imagine taking twenty-nine rowdy girls to a movie in Times Square!).
McCourt struggles to find his way in the classroom and spends his evenings drinking with writers and dreaming of one day putting his own story to paper. Teacher Man shows McCourt developing his unparalleled ability to tell a great story as, five days a week, five periods per day, he works to gain the attention and respect of unruly, hormonally charged or indifferent adolescents. McCourt's rocky marriage, his failed attempt to get a Ph.D. at Trinity College, Dublin, and his repeated firings due to his propensity to talk back to his superiors ironically lead him to New York's most prestigious school, Stuyvesant High School, where he finally finds a place and a voice. "Doggedness," he says, is "not as glamorous as ambition or talent or intellect or charm, but still the one thing that got me through the days and nights."
For McCourt, storytelling itself is the source of salvation, and in Teacher Man the journey to redemption -- and literary fame -- is an exhilarating adventure.

Jodi Picoult: The Tenth Circle

images/konyvajanlo/07oktober/picoult.jpgWhen Daniel Stone was a child, he was the only white boy in a native Eskimo village where his mother taught, and he was teased mercilessly because he was different. He fought back, the baddest of the bad kids: stealing, drinking, robbing and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush - where he honed his artistic talent, fell in love with a girl and got her pregnant. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself - jettisoning all that anger to become a docile, devoted husband and father. Fifteen years later, when we meet Daniel again, he is a comic book artist. His wife teaches Dante's Inferno at a local college; his daughter, Trixie, is the light of his life - and a girl who only knows her father as the even-tempered, mild-mannered man he has been her whole life. Until, that is, she is date.
raped.and Daniel finds himself struggling, again, with a powerlessness and a rage that may not just swallow him whole, but destroy his family and his future.
