Stephen Fry's Incomplete and Utter History of Classical Music

Description: Your attention, contrary to custom, offered no audiobook, well-read one of its authors do not need any special presentation by Stephen Fry, and that from which this book grew. The fact is that in 2002, the British radio station Classic FM Fry made a series of programs titled "The Incomplete and Utter History of Classical Music".

Stephen Fry's English Delight

Stephen Fry hosts four programmes on the joys of the English language - as heard on BBC Radio 4. Current Puns: Why does our language groan with the weight of puns? What exactly is a pun? And who, or what, is the Thief of Bad Gags? Metaphor: the English language is chock-full of maritime metaphors - cock up, taken aback, chip on your shoulder and show a leg. And, with the help of a Greek removals firm, we also find the origin of the word 'metaphor'. Quotation: the uses and misuses of quotations are revealed, and there is also a frank confession from a quotation compiler, which we cannot divulge here. Cliche: this title features sick parrots and the cliche crisis that affected the writing of Flaubert, Joyce and Eliot, and helped shape modern language and culture.

Der Lügner

Description: Der fünfzehnjährige Schüler Adrian Healey ist ein sympathischer Taugenichts, der sich am liebsten selbst in Schwierigkeiten bringt. Er mag Bücher und sexuelle Perversionen undhegteinenaufrichtigenHaß gegen jede Art von Wahrheit. Diese Abneigung wird ihm zum Verhängnis, als er mit dem Cambridge-Professor Trefusis in eine Kriminalaffäre gerät, die ihren Anfang mit dem Mord an einem ungarischen Geiger nimmt und sich rasch zu einer haarsträubenden Verfolgungsjagd steigert. "Stephen Fry gehört zu jener spezifischen Schar englischer Allroundtalente, die schreiben und auftreten können, denen Musical, Fernsehserien, Soloentertainment genauso selbstverständlich sind wie das Vorhaben, einen Roman zu schaffen." Süddeutsche Zeitung "Ein absolut herausragender Erstling - der Witz sprüht, die Komik ist ein Hochgenuß, und alles ist von einer angenehmen Klugheit." The Times

Rescuing the Spectacled Bear

Rescuing the Spectacled Bear

Description: The inspirational book "Rescuing the Spectacled Bear" is read by Stephen Fry and also includes a specially recorded update by the author on the Bear Rescue project. Stephen Fry first travelled to Peru to investigate Paddington Bear's origins in the BBC documentary, "Paddington Bear: The Early Years". However, the surprise star of the show turned out to be a real live bear named Yogi. He was a Spectacled Bear so called due to the markings around the eyes but had been captured by the people of a small village high in the Andes and had lived in a tiny cage, barely large enough for him to turn around in, for two years. Thanks to some bartering, he was released and taken to a new enclosure at the bottom of Peru's greatest man-made treasure, Machu Picchu. This was the beginning of Stephen's obsession with Spectacled Bears and their destiny. A charitable foundation Bear Rescue was then established for the purpose of rescuing distressed bears, to purchase land for their exclusive use and to pursue research into their numbers, their habitat and their future. Then it was back to Peru for the second documentary. Stephen Fry and the Spectacled Bears was devoted entirely to the welfare of the Spectacled Bear and the attempts to keep the species from extinction. During this trip Stephen kept a diary. The diary became the book, "Rescuing the Spectacled Bear", which has now been exclusively read in its entirety by Stephen Fry for this recording.
