Něžná je noc

Description: Milionářská dcera Nicole, ne zcela vyléčená z těžké duševní nemoci a hluboce závislá na svém muži-psychiatrovi. Dick, úspěšný lékař, spolumajitel sanatoria pro duševně choré, vděčící však za financování závratné kariéry tučnému kontu své ženy. A do vzájemného vztahu těchto amerických manželů, žijících uprostřed hojnosti na francouzské Riviéře, vstoupí jednoho dne mladičká nadějná herečka Rosemary.Půdorys psychologického románu, který vyšel poprvé roku 1934, skrývá fascinující pohled na život boháčů, kteří si mohou dovolit vše, nač jen pomyslí. Konzumní způsob života autora vždycky fascinoval a uchvacoval, ale dokázal ho podrobit bystré, nemilosrdné kritice, jež je pro jeho psaní charakteristická. Dvojí tvář hlavních hrdinů, působících jako párek spokojených manželů, otvírá další témata, především přetvářku a snobismus. Předností románu je dynamický děj a výborná charakteristika postav. Můžeme na něj nahlížet jako na sociálně kritický dokument 30. a 40. let, zároveň je nutné říci, že román Něžná je noc se stal klasickým a oblíbeným dílem světové literatury 20. století.

Hüttengaudi

Description: Kommissarin Irmi Mangold ärgert sich: Warum hat sie sich nur von ihrer Nachbarin zu dieser albernen Schrothkur in Oberstaufen überreden lassen? Und dann steht sie am Urlaubsort plötzlich vor einem Toten, der ihr mehr als bekannt vorkommt: ihrem Exmann Martin Maurer ... Währenddessen hat es Kollegin Kathi Reindl in Garmisch mit dem toten Liftmann Xaver Fischer zu tun, der zu Lebzeiten im Skiclub mitmischte. Ein arger Dorn im Auge war ihm die moderne Skihütte, deren Wirte er so piesackte, dass sie schließlich verkaufen wollten. Zwei Mordfälle an zwei verschiedenen Orten, aber beide Male dieselbe Todesursache. Alles nur Zufall?

Noite na Taverna

Noite na Taverna

Description: Noite na Taverna é uma narrativa (novela ou conto) construída em sete partes, contendo epígrafes e os nomes de cada personagem, como subtítulos, antecedendo as narrativas, contadas em uma taverna. Há, na última parte, o entrelaçamento da história de Johann e de alguns personagens. Mais do que pelos elementos romanescos e satânicos que a condimentam (violentação, corrupção, incesto, adultério, necrofilia, traição, antropofagia, assassinatos por vingança ou amor), a obra impõe-se pela estrutura: um narrador em terceira pessoa introduz o cenário, as personagens, a situação, e praticamente desaparece, dando lugar a outros narradores – as próprias personagens, que em primeira pessoa contam, uma a uma, episódios de suas vidas aventureiras.

Jeeves: A Gentleman’s Personal Gentleman

Jeeves: A Gentleman’s Personal Gentleman

Description: This book tells the story of Reginald Jeeves, a valet to several forgettable members of Britain’s gentry. While Parkinson’s account of Mr Jeeves’ life is entertaining, it falls just short of fascinating – the account assumes that the reader is already familiar with certain adventures and people. Mr Jeeves is remarkable for his talent at manipulation and extraction. For instance, Jeeves spends a lot of his time saving one employer from marriage, by using an encyclopedic knowledge of human nature. But Jeeves is not above manipulating his employers into situations that will profit himself. Mr Parkinson has done another admirable biography, even if his subject isn’t as well-known as Admiral Hornblower. The lesson here is that while a person may not be a household name, the biography can still be quite entertaining. If only some writer would come along and tell us more about Mr Jeeves and his adventures!

Vision in White: The Bride Quartet, Book 1

Description: The women at Vows--a wedding planning company in Connecticut--make it their business to create memorable events for couples sealing their bonds. And though the bonds among Parker, Emma, Mac, and Laurel may not be official, they are very real--and equally worthy of celebration. — Mackensie Elliot's experience with her broken family has convinced her the only way to make happiness last is to take a picture of it. She does just that at Vows--where her photos, Laurel's cakes, Emma's flowers, and Parker's almost frightening organizational skills combine for a flourishing business. As a bonus, the four friends are able to live on the grounds of Parker's sprawling family estate, where the weddings and other events are staged. Sometimes it means dealing with drama--but even the worst mother-of-the-bridezilla can't compare to Mac's own manipulative mom. Every time Mac talks to her she winds up drained--and so does her bank account.

Bed of Roses: The Bride Quartet, Book 2

Description: Since she was a little girl, Emma Grant has always loved romance. So it’s really no surprise that she has found her calling as a wedding florist. She gets to play with flowers every day and work with her three best friends in the process. She couldn’t ask for a better job. And on the surface, Emma’s love life seems to be thriving. Slim and sultry, she brings color into every room she enters, just like the arrangements she creates. Men swarm around her, yet she still hasn’t found Mr. Right. And the last place she’s looking is right under her nose. But that’s just where Jack Cooke is. He’s been best friends with Parker’s brother for years, which makes him practically family. The architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. And when Emma returns his passion — kiss for blistering kiss—things start to get complicated at Vows. Jack has never been big on commitment. Emma yearns for a lifelong love affair. If the two are to find common ground, they must trust in their history — and in their hearts…

Обломов

Description: Иван Александрович Гончаров уже при жизни приобрел прочную репутацию одного из самых ярких и значительных представителей русской реалистической литературы. "Школьная библиотека" знакомит своих слушателей с его лучшим произведением - романом "Обломов", одним из самых глубоких исследований русского характера.
Гончаров не только показал удивительный, парадоксальный тип русского человека, но и сделал его имя нарицательным, определив такой образ мыслей и образ жизни как "обломовщина". Слушайте роман "Обломов", ведь он и поныне остается непревзойденным образцом психологической прозы, своего рода энциклопедией русской жизни.

Oscar Wilde and the Candlelight Murders

Description: London, 1889. Oscar Wilde, celebrated poet, wit, playwright and raconteur is the literary sensation of his age. All Europe lies at his feet. Yet when he chances across the naked corpse of sixteen-year-old Billy Wood, posed by candlelight in a dark stifling attic room, he cannot ignore the brutal murder. With the help of fellow author Arthur Conan Doyle he sets out to solve the crime – but it is Wilde’s unparalleled access to all degrees of late Victorian life, from society drawing rooms to the underclass, that will prove the decisive factor in their investigation of what turns out to be a series of brutal killings.

Paper Towns

Description: Green melds elements from his Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines— the impossibly sophisticated but unattainable girl, and a life-altering road trip—for another teen-pleasing read. Weeks before graduating from their Orlando-area high school, Quentin Jacobsen's childhood best friend, Margo, reappears in his life, specifically at his window, commanding him to take her on an all-night, score-settling spree. Quentin has loved Margo from not so afar (she lives next door), years after she ditched him for a cooler crowd. Just as suddenly, she disappears again, and the plot's considerable tension derives from Quentin's mission to find out if she's run away or committed suicide. Margo's parents, inured to her extreme behavior, wash their hands, but Quentin thinks she's left him a clue in a highlighted volume of Leaves of Grass. Q's sidekick, Radar, editor of a Wikipedia-like Web site, provides the most intelligent thinking and fuels many hilarious exchanges with Q. The title, which refers to unbuilt subdivisions and copyright trap towns that appear on maps but don't exist, unintentionally underscores the novel's weakness: both milquetoast Q and self-absorbed Margo are types, not fully dimensional characters. Readers who can get past that will enjoy the edgy journey and off-road thinking.
