Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

Description: Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage. Thirteen-year-old Billy Williams enters a man's world in the Welsh mining pits.... Gus Dewar, an American law student rejected in love, finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson's White House.... two orphaned Russian brothers, Grigori and Lev Peshkov, embark on radically different paths half a world apart when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution.... Billy's sister, Ethel, a housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts, takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy at the German embassy in London.... In future volumes of The Century Trilogy, subsequent generations of the same families will travel through the great events of the rest of the 20th century, changing themselves - and the century itself. With passion and the hand of a master, Follett brings us into a world we thought we knew but now will never seem the same again.

Beckmörker

Description: Det lilla fiskeläget Råå var utan minsta tvekan en idyll. Men kvinnan som denna kväll satt på förarsätet i bilen på en av Råås smågator, med överkroppen lutad i sned vinkel mot passagerarstolen och huvudet vilande mot dess nackstöd, hade inget som helst idylliskt över sig. Hon stirrade framför sig mot ett okänt fjärran, och den öppna munnen gav ansiktet ett märkligt, lätt förvånat uttryck hon var död.

Band Of Brothers [Abridged]

Description: The men of E Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne, volunteered for this elite fighting force because they wanted to be the best in the army--and avoid fighting alongside unmotivated, out-of-shape draftees. The price they paid for that desire was long, arduous, and sometimes sadistic training, followed by some of the most horrific battles of World War II. Actor Cotter Smith--a veteran of numerous TV movies and Broadway plays--spins Stephen Ambrose's tale with almost laconic ease. Anecdote by anecdote, he lets the power of the story build. By the time the company has gotten through D-day and seized Hitler's Eagle's Nest in Bavaria, we feel we know as much about the men and their missions as we do about our own brothers.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles [UNABRIDGED]

Description:Thomas Hardy, never one to be conventional, took a very unconventional moral stance in this novel, which shocked Victorian readers. In doing so, he created one of the great romantic novels of all time, the story of a striking and tragic character who came to life for the reader as she did for the author: "I have not been able to put on paper all that she is or was, to me," Hardy wrote. With this work, he not only produced a harrowing novel of seduction and abandonment, he also created his most memorable heroine.

The Religion

The Religion

Description: May 1565. Suleiman the Magnificent, emperor of the Ottomans, has declared a jihad against the Knights of Saint John the Baptist. The largest armada of all time approaches the Knights' Christian stronghold on the island of Malta. The Turks know the Knights as the "The Hounds of Hell." The Knights call themselves "The Religion." In Messina, Sicily, a French countess, Carla la Penautier, seeks a passage to Malta in a quest to find the son taken from her at his birth 12 years ago. The only man with the expertise and daring to help her is a Rabelaisian soldier of fortune, arms dealer, former janissary, and strapping Saxon adventurer by the name of Mattias Tannhauser. He agrees to accompany the lady to Malta, where, amidst the most spectacular siege in military history, they must try to find the boy - whose name they do not know and whose face they have never seen - and pluck him from the jaws of Holy War. The Religion is Book One of The Tannhauser Triology, and from the first page of this epic account of the last great medieval conflict between East and West, it is clear we are in the hands of a master. Not since James Clavell has a novelist so powerfully and assuredly plunged readers headlong into another place and time. Anne Rice transformed the vampire novel. Stephen King reinvented horror. Now, in a spectacular tale of heroism, tragedy, and passion, Tim Willocks revivifies historical fiction.

Tales for a Winters Night

Tales for a Winters Night

Description: Tales for a Winter's Night brings together eight Arthur Conan Doyle mystery classics that originally appeared in the Strand magazine between July 1898 and January 1899. When first gathered into one volume in 1908, the book was entitled Round the Fire Stories, since the author recommended that they be read ideally "round the fire" upon a winter's night. According to Barzun & Taylor in A Catalogue of Crime, "As one reads 'The Man with the Watches', 'The Lost Special', 'The Jew's Breastplate', 'The Black Doctor', and the rest, one marvels again at Doyle's natural gift of story-telling and one relishes his ingrained habit of giving clues, even when they serve narrative and are not to be used for ratiocination. The stories are worth reading even around a radiator."

The Secret - Das Geheimnis

The Secret - Das Geheimnis

Description: Alle Leser sind im Grunde auf der Suche nach der einen Erkenntnis, die nicht nur ihre intellektuelle Neugier befriedigt, sondern ihnen Anleitung gibt, ihr Leben glücklicher und erfüllter zu gestalten. Diese eine Erkenntnis – „The Secret“, wie Autorin Rhonda Byrne es nennt – war wenigen Auserwählten der Menschheitsgeschichte gegenwärtig. Die Smaragdtafel des Hermes Trismegistos, die Keimzelle aller heute bestehenden esoterischen Systeme, hat es ausgedrückt mit den Worten: „Wie innen, so außen“. Große Geister wie Platon, Leonardo da Vinci und Einstein haben um das Geheimnis gewusst; moderne Autoren wie Neale Donald Walsch und Bärbel Mohr haben in jüngster Zeit eine Millionen-Leserschaft damit inspiriert. „The Secret“, das als Dokumentarfilm schon weltweit erfolgreich lief, beweist in einer überzeugenden Mischung aus Erklärungen der Autorin und Zitaten bekannter Weisheitslehrer die Wahrheit einiger grundlegender Erkenntnisse: Wir sind selbst Schöpfer unserer Realität. Die Dinge, die uns im Alltag begegnen, haben wir durch die eigene Gedankenenergie angezogen. Die Kraft, die wir „Gott“ nennen, war und ist nie wirklich von uns getrennt. Einige Bestsellerautoren schicken ihre Helden auf die spannende Suche nach einem fiktiven Geheimnis. Mit „The Secret“ werden Sie selbst zum Sucher und können einen Schatz finden – nicht fiktiv, sondern wirklich.
