Jmeno ruze

Description: Prostřednictvím příběhu o vyšetřování několika záhadných vražd evokuje autor nejen dobovou atmosféru, ale hlavně spory mezi císařem a papežem. Vypravěčem je starý mnich, který před smrtí líčí události, jichž byl vmládí přímým svědkem. V klášteře, kde mělo dojít k vyjednávání mezi papežskou acísařskou stranou, došlo k vraždám, jejichž vyšetřování se ujal učený františkán Vilém z Baskervillu. Pátrání dává Vilémovi možnost, aby uplatnil nejen svou učenost, ale i schopnost brilantní dedukce. Po jeho boku proniká mladý hrdina do tajů soudobé teologie, filozofie i politiky.

The Lovely Bones

The Lovely Bones

Description: On her way home from school on a snowy December day in 1973, 14-year-old Susie Salmon ("like the fish") is lured into a makeshift underground den in a cornfield and brutally raped and murdered, the latest victim of a serial killer--the man she knew as her neighbor, Mr. Harvey.

Alice Sebold's haunting and heartbreaking debut novel, The Lovely Bones, unfolds from heaven, where "life is a perpetual yesterday" and where Susie narrates and keeps watch over her grieving family and friends, as well as her brazen killer and the sad detective working on her case. As Sebold fashions it, everyone has his or her own version of heaven. Susie's resembles the athletic fields and landscape of a suburban high school: a heaven of her "simplest dreams," where "there were no teachers.... We never had to go inside except for art class.... The boys did not pinch our backsides or tell us we smelled; our textbooks were Seventeen and Glamour and Vogue."

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Description: Published in 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin brought the abolitionists' message to the public conscience - no woman before or since has so moved America to take action against an injustice. Indeed, Abraham Lincoln greeted Stowe in 1863 as "the little lady who made this big war."

Eliza Harris, a slave whose child is to be sold, escapes her beloved home on the Shelby plantation in Kentucky and heads North, eluding the hired slave catchers. Aided by the underground railroad, Quakers, and others opposed to the Fugitive Slave Act, Eliza, her son, and her husband George run toward Canada.

As the Harrises flee to freedom, another slave, Uncle Tom, is sent "down the river" for sale. Too loyal to abuse his master's trust, too Christian to rebel, Tom wrenches himself from his family. Befriending a white child, Evangeline St. Clare, Tom is purchased by her father and taken to their home in New Orleans. Although Evangeline's father finally resolves to free his slaves, his sudden death places him in the ranks of those who mean well by their slaves but never take action. Tom is sent farther downriver to Simon Legree's plantation, and the whips of Legree's overseers.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Description: Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Edward Hyde. The work is known for its vivid portrayal of the psychopathology of a split personality; in mainstream culture the very phrase "Jekyll and Hyde" has come to mean a person who may show a distinctly different character, or profoundly different behaviour, from one situation to the next, as if almost another person, possibly because of the rare disorder "multiple personality disorder".

The Vampire Lestat [Unabridged]

Description: More of The Vampire Chronicles - where dark pleasures and glorious decadence abound. Anne Rice once again creates the hypnotic, mythical world of the undead. Here is the story of the dazzling and seductive vampire Lestat, whom we first perceive as evil incarnate. We travel with Lestat from the licentious Paris of the 18th century to the pagan courts of ancient Egypt to the frenzied 20th century world of rock superstardom, as he elusively searches for the roots and meaning of his own immortality. As he does so, our sympathy is more and more engaged and we come to recognize that he is, in fact, a questing romantic, a vampire hero - with his own strange and passionate sense of courage and morality.

The Vampire Lestat is Volume 2 of The Vampire Chronicles.
