The White Guard [Russian Edition] Audiobook by Mikhail Bulgakov

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The White Guard [Russian Edition] Author: Mikhail Bulgakov Narrator: Vladimir Ivanovich Samoylov Format: Unabridged Length: 11 hrs and 18 mins Language: English Release date: 07-21-11 Publisher: New Internet Technologies Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 24 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: The White Guard is less famous than Mikhail Bulgakov's comic hit, The Master and Margarita, but it is a lovely book, though completely different in tone. It is set in Kiev during the Russian revolution and tells a story about the war's effect on a middle-class family (not workers). The story was not politically correct and thereby contributed to Bulgakov's lifelong troubles with the Soviet authorities. It was, however, well-loved, and the novel was turned into a successful play at the time of its publication in 1967. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. Members Reviews: it's not in english I was very interested in this work and thought only the title was in the original language... The whole book is read in russian. If you don't speak russian, it hasn't any sense to buy it. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Northanger Abbey Audiobook by Jane Austen

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Northanger Abbey Author: Jane Austen Narrator: Donada Peters Format: Unabridged Length: 7 hrs and 5 mins Language: English Release date: 02-08-07 Publisher: Tantor Audio Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 284 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: Northanger Abbey is Austen's parody of late 18th century Gothic thrillers by writers such as Ann Radcliffe. While it is considered by many to be Austen's most light-hearted novel, it is nevertheless filled with unsentimental commentary on love and marriage. Editorial Reviews: Award-winning narrator, Donada Peters, gives her familiar gentle-yet-dynamic performance in this classic audiobook from Jane Austen. Peters' engaging voice takes listeners on a trip with the young Catherine Morland from Fullerton to the town of Bath, and eventually to Northanger Abbey. As with most Austen novels, Northanger Abbey is not simply a coming of age tale, focusing on the courtship and romance of the young. This is a tale full of parody as Miss Morland, a devoted reader of gothic novels, lets her imagination run wild with all the horrors and mysteries she thinks will no doubt occur while at the abbey. Critic Reviews: "The purpose of the novel is to ridicule the [then] popular tales of romance and terror...and to contrast these with the normal realities of life." (The Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature) Members Reviews: A Favorite Lots of fun! How could one go wrong with Austen? This story has some particularly funny spots. I must have looked silly driving down the road laughing out loud and slapping my leg. The narrator is excellent. Classic story; not my favorite narrator Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Overall, yes. The humor in this work is brought out well on audio. What did you like best about this story? I think it is one of the funnier of Austen's stories to me. What do you think the narrator could have done better? The narrator did a fine job with the reading. From her voice, she sounded on the older side. I found this distracting since this book has an extremely young and naive main character. I couldn't decide if it was intentional to have an older voice as the narrator, yet she sounded even older than Austen was at her death. As a result, for me the narration really took me out of the story, rather than being a plus or even neutral. She might have been on another book. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? A Gothic Satire Rediscovering Jane austin Hearing someone read the text brings a whole new experience to the writing of Jane Austin. The irony of the text comes out more clearly when heard. Austin is certainly one of the great writers in the English language. Plot, character, tone and social commentary on her time makes this an exciting audio book. WONDERFUL READ MY TYPE OF BOOK AND THE READERS MAKE IT COME ALIVE SO YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE RIGHT THERE AND LIVING AMONG THE CHARACTERS. DEFINITELY ONE I WILL LISTEN TO AGAIN. Lightest and Funniest of Austin's Novel's This is a wonderful character study of a naive but good-hearted young woman with many sly asides and jokes, especially in references to the Gothic novels of Austin's day (which didn't have explicit sex, but much scandal and melodrama). The novel is well read, and I appreciated the humor more when hearing it than I did when reading it. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Inspired by the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx; this novel is not only a statement of egalitarian convictions but a great early contribution to the utopian genre! This work could be seen as a kind of utopian counterpart to George Orwell's famous and deeply pessimistic, dystopian novel 1984. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Dream or vision? Fascinating. I had to pause and revisit the author's dates of birth and death. Seemed more contemporary. Entertaining and thought provoking. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Guerre et Paix 2 Livre Audio par Léon Tolstoï

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Guerre et Paix 2 Auteur: Léon Tolstoï Narrateur: Éric Herson-Macarel Format: Unabridged Durée: 14 hrs and 3 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 12-05-16 Éditeur: Sixtrid Evaluation: 5 sur 5 sur 6 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: À la suite du traité de Tilsit, la paix semble à nouveau s'établir durablement en Europe. Et chacun de retourner à ses occupations d'avant-guerre. Les bals, les fêtes, l'insouciance des vies reprennent de plus belle, d'autant que beaucoup ont vu la mort de près et sont revenus auréolés de gloire. Les alliances entre les familles se nouent et se dénouent au gré des amours. Chacun pousse ses pions pour trouver le bon parti au mépris des autres même de ses anciens camarades de guerre. Tel Dolokhov qui, amoureux de Sonia, cherche à éloigner Nicolas par tous les moyens même les plus méprisables. Certains se cherchent un nouvel idéal. Ainsi Pierre, qui - après avoir suivi l'enseignement maçonnique - veut libérer ses terres du servage. Mais trompé par un intendant indélicat, il ne s'aperçoit pas que ses décisions sont plus néfastes que bénéfiques. Avec la paix, la vie a repris pleine de futilités et bien loin des misères et des horreurs de la guerre ! © domaine public (P)2016 Sixtrid SAS Avis des membres: Excellent - as expected I'm not going to attempt to review Tolstoy. However, I would like to point out that War and Peace is probably his most extraordinary novel, and I highly recommend it for readers aging 45 and above. It is not for the ones in a hurry. It is a sublime pleasure that is prolonged all along the 2000 pages of both volumes of the novel. For those of you who love literature, he's as good as it gets. I've heard people say that Tolstoy 'describes too much'. Not the case. I never found a 'page filling description', one that is not really sublime and fully contributes in the context of the narration. For those of you who like reading in French, this edition is an excellent choice. (Note that this is volume 2) Liked it Good translation, i think. Some spelling errors and a few (enexplainable to me) words in english. Very happy to have a kindle and to have access to all this free books. Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

Ich habe sie als Kind sehr gern gelesen und nun nach über 30 Jahren festgestellt, dass sie nichts von ihrem Reiz verloren hat. An Jack London hat mir auch immer gefallen, dass stets die Fabel im Vordergrund steht und nicht der Stil. Entsprechend gradlinig und schnörkellos wird auch diese Geschichte erzählt, man möchte sie bis zum Schluss nicht aus der Hand legen. Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

Long revered as the definitive guide to strategy and tactics on the battlefield, its timeless wisdom is now being applied in the boardroom, on the playing field, and everywhere challenges must be faced. Required reading for US Marine commandants, The Art of War has inspired generals from Douglas MacArthur to Norman Schwazkopf. But it has also been used by top executives, sports coaches, political strategists, lawyers, salesmen, and Survivor contestants. Whatever your arena, The Art of War will help you overcome every obstacle along the path to success. Members Reviews: It does give a good history of the various versions of the book and ... It's hard to figure out which part of this is the actual writing and which is a narrative about the writing. It also goes into a lot of Chines Dynasty history that I wasn't too interested in delving as deep as it got. It does give a good history of the various versions of the book and who may or may not have written it. Great book. To defeat your neighbor (LOL) Proof of Chinese wisdom. The true art will be not to have wars at all. Five Stars Great read and commentary on the classic war strategy book that offers advice applicable to any facet of life. Boldface type makes it work This is the only copy of the art of war that I've come across which provides the original text in boldface type so that you can read it that having to wait three pages and pages of commentary . Five Stars I would enjoy a modern treatise of this book Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The most captivating part of perhaps the greatest epic poem ever written, Dante's Inferno still holds the power to thrill and inspire. The medieval equivalent of a thriller, Inferno follows Dante and his faithful guide, Virgil, as they traverse the complex geography of hell, confronting its many threats, macabre punishments, and historical figures before reaching the deep chamber where Satan himself resides. Now, in this new translation, Clive James communicates not just the transcendent poetry of Dante's language but also the excitement and terror of his journey through the underworld. Instead of Dante's original terza rima, a form that in English tends to show the strain of composition, James employs fluently linked quatrains, thereby conveying the seamless flow of Dante's poetry and the headlong momentum of the action. As James writes in his introduction, Dante's great poem "can still astonish us, whether we believe in the supernatural or not. At the very least it will make us believe in poetry."

Publications Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 16 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: Alexei Ivanovich is a Russian tutor working in Germany. His employer, the General, is waiting for his wealthy grandmother to die to pay off his debts so that he can marry Mademoiselle Blanche, while Alexei is in love with the General's beautiful but not so kind stepdaughter, Polina, who is scornful of his devotion to her. Alexei dramatically offers to kill himself for Polina, but she asks him instead to place a bet for her at the roulette table of the local casino. Alexei does, and he wins, but still he cannot sway her. Unexpectedly, the General's grandmother turns up in Germany, where she gambles away the fortune that the General had hoped to inherit. Will the General marry Mademoiselle Blanche without his grandmother's fortune, or will his debts finally catch up with him? Will Polina choose Alexei or one of the richer men in her social circle? Can Alexei control his taste for gambling, or will it spiral into a full-blown addiction like those around him? This novel about the devastation wrought by gambling addiction was written by Dostoevsky to help pay off his own gambling debts. Will the General marry Mademoiselle Blanche without his grandmother's fortune, or will his debts finally catch up with him? Will Polina choose Alexei or one of the richer men in her social circle? Can Alexei control his taste for gambling, or will it spiral into a full-blown addiction like those around him? This novel about the devastation wrought by gambling addiction was written by Dostoevsky to help pay off his own gambling debts. Members Reviews: Story of intrigue and gambling addiction It's hard not to read some of the main character's experiences as autobiographical, since Dostoyevsky had a gambling addiction, wrote the book to pay off his own gambling debts, etc. Dostoyevsky writes about the process of gambling for high stakes at the roulette table in such a way that it conveys some of the physical sensations of adrenaline. As a story, I feel like most of the "action" of the plot was front-loaded into the first half of the book, with the rest given to complex character development and motivations. That said, it's a good audio-read. Check it out! Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

A classic coming of age tale Read it in grammar school and it's a classic must-have; similar to Oliver Twist, Tom Sawyer and others. It's a classic and descriptive story of a boy coming of age.

The accumulated longing of Frome ends in an ironic turn of events. His initial impressions are based on his observations of Frome going about his mundane tasks in Starkfield, and something about him catches the eye and curiosity of the visitor, but no one in the town seems interested in revealing many details about the man or his history - or perhaps they are not able to. The narrator ultimately finds himself in the position of staying overnight at Frome's house in order to escape a winter storm, and from there he observes Frome and his private circumstances. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Oh, Edith, you've done it again! I love the emotions she evokes in her writings, but it's just so darn depressing. Ethan Frome isn't nearly as endearing as House of Mirth, but it still pulls at your heart. Somehow, despite his actions, you sympathize with Ethan to a point, lining for him to find peace even though you know it's hopeless. I think the reason I enjoyed House of Mirth more is because I didn't know the outcome of the story, so there was always some piece of me that held onto hope. In Ethan Frome, however, Wharton introduces Ethan as a depressed, disfigured man with secrets, then takes you back in time to how he came to that point. You begin the story knowing he ends up unhappy, so there isn't any room for hope. You're simply edged on by your curiosity to find out what exactly brought about his doomed existence in life. Despite not really caring for the story itself, I feel I must give Wharton her dues by rating at least 3 stars; her writing is just so beautiful! Like I said, I was curious from the get-go of how Ethan Frome got to where he was. I wanted to know what came of each character, even though I don't think I deeply cared for any of them. It's a strange kind of detached curiosity, almost like reading a bad gossip column (though written about 10x better lol). You must know what happens to the characters even though you'll probably discard the information shortly after finding it out. If you enjoyed Ethan Frome just a little, you must go on to read House of Mirth. I'm sure you'll enjoy it just as much, if not more. Ethan Frome and Summer Surprising character, not what I expected. He did not improve his life by falling in love with another woman. It was a sad book, about a dissatisfied man. His wife was sour and tried to get sympathy and attention by her ailments, but just succeeded in alienating her husband. He and his paramour tried to leave by committing suicide, and failed, and then had to suffer the consequences of this failure, for the rest of their lives. Summer was about a silly listless girl that took up with a newcomer. It was kind of creepy that the man who adopted and raised her wanted her for a lover and married her when the man who got her pregnant left her for his original fiance. Tragic but enjoyable 81. One of the most tragic characters in literature is Ethan Frome. I really enjoyed this work, the author uses wonderful words to describe her scenes of the country side. I also found that her discourses of the characters hold to the dialect of the area.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Audiobook by Lewis Carroll

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Author: Lewis Carroll Narrator: Lewis Carroll Format: Unabridged Length: 2 hrs and 15 mins Language: English Release date: 10-11-17 Publisher: Cosmo Distribution Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (commonly shortened to "Alice in Wonderland") is an 1865 novel written by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. ©2017 Cosmo Distribution (P)2017 Cosmo Distribution Members Reviews: The Best Kindle Option Available I took a gamble on buying this edition when no one had reviewed it yet. I tried several other Kindle editions available and had found them truly appalling in terms of formatting. This however, is significantly better, featuring well structured chapter breaks and all the original illustrations, which enhance the story a lot. Furthermore, considering it contains both books, plus the excellent Hunting of the Snark, it is a fantastic price. However, there are still some glaring mistakes, such as some formatting bugs in a few of the poems and spelling errors in places (such as at the start of Looking Glass, where some of the Ls are replaced with 1s - I guess a scanner did the 'writing here'). 5 stars for the great price and superior formatting over the other options. -1 star for the glaring lack of proof reading from the publisher. Good book A classic children's book that never gets old. I bought it for my daughter and we read a chapter every night. The only issue I have is that it's a little smaller than I expected, but that's okay. Fun and ridiculous, as intended Playful poetry may be more amusing for adults. In any case I finally learned about the Boogum. What fun! Theres some discussion that there is a hidden message in his poem. If so, I admit to it being way over my head! Italicized Text?! I really wanted to like this--the original illustrations are beautifully reproduced--but bizzarely, half the books are italicized in their entirety, making them pretty much unreadable. If this were fixed, I'd give this 5 stars. Outstanding, of course. There is nothing for me to add to the mountains of praise already out there for this masterpiece of nonsense literature â arguably the finest sustained piece there is, with only William Gilbert and Thomas Hood to rival it. As the Victioran languge is sometimes a little dated, readers might care to go instead for Martin Gardnerâs Annotated verion that explains everything in detail (too much detail for some tastes).

The search leads all over the world, netting a series of suspects whose only connection is their innocence - at least of this crime. But The Case of Comrade Tulayev, the best novel about the Stalinist purges, is also a classic tale of risk and adventure that stands beside For Whom the Bell Tolls. It is a masterpiece, now available again after 30 years. Members Reviews: Look behind stage at Russian "Trial" I was referred to this story by Christopher Hitchens and gave it a shot. It was dark and well written but sad in its overall cold war conclusions. Hitchens was one of our true intellectuals and that's what sold me on the book. Historically, a must read if you are interested in Russian history and a nation based on lies. Lot's of history behind Victor Serge a revolutionary worth knowing about. How Lenin DID NOT LEAD to Stalin This fictional account of the events AFTER the Russian revolution provides an accurate account of what Stalin did to secure his wrong idea of "socialism in one country. " A portrait of ideology spiraling into insanity A must for anyone who wants to understand the heart of the Russian revolution and it's self destruction. A cautionary tale for anyone who believes in ideology over humanity. Brilliant portrait of delusion. required reading Beautifully written, thought provoking.Worth rereading many times. Clear in depth picture of Stalinist Russia, city and country, and the impact of the purges on the public. Enthralling! Finally, after thirty years, it is available and it is essential to anyone who wants to know about Stalin and what happened during that period. It is also an interesting book written very well, which keeps the listener enthralled, but what makes it even more exciting is knowing that you are reading about history at the same time.

Smith Format: Unabridged Length: 21 hrs and 39 mins Language: English Release date: 04-19-17 Publisher: SAGA Egmont Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 5 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "The Mysterious Island" (French: "L'île mystérieuse") is a novel by Jules Verne, published in 1874. The novel is a crossover sequel to Verne's famous "Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea" and "In Search of the Castaways", though thematically it is vastly different from those books. An early draft of the novel, initially rejected by Verne's publisher and wholly reconceived before publication, was titled "Shipwrecked Family: Marooned With Uncle Robinson", seen as indicating the influence on the novel of "Robinson Crusoe" and "The Swiss Family Robinson". ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Loved it Really enjoyed this book, even the rather cheesy way it ended. Loved the characters and the descriptions on how to make things. Loved their adventures. Fantastic I never knew this book existed u til two weeks ago.one of the best books I have ever read.do yourself a favor and read this wonderful book. Great book with interesting plot It's the first Jules Verne novel I've read and I really enjoyed seeing how literature was written years ago. It wasn't dumbed down like some of the things printed today. I had to look up the meaning of some of the words, which made the book even more interesting. I'll have to go find more of his works. Read it! Read it again! For someone who didn't remember the plot, I thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. The flora, fauna and chemistry was above me, but that's what reading is all about. Jules Verne deserves all the popularity he's received through the generations. Cast yourself away with this excellent book. I really enjoyed this tale of survival and adventure. The author has obviously researched the science available to him a hundred years ago in great detail, and the folks on the island benefit greatly as a result. The vintage writing style is a breath of fresh air, once you get used to it. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

A flame-haired fiery storm god. A comic book alien-hero-god who defends humanity. The swastika. Even the name "Thursday" ("Thor's Day"). Despite the virtual disappearance of the indigenous Norse religion and mythology several centuries ago, modern society still regularly encounters the storm god Thor, who continues to be brought back to life in the form of literature and was recently the protagonist in a big-budget Hollywood movie. What is it about this god, out of the hundreds (if not thousands) of deities that were consigned to the dustbin of history by the world's major religions, that so captures people's imaginations today? A better understanding of Thor's appeal can be found in just about every aspect of the history and evolution of the figure over the centuries, including the origins of the god, the evocative imagery used to describe him, and even the parallels between Thor and similar gods and heroes. All of this has been buffeted by literature, such as the stories about Thor found in the Prose Edda and the Poetic Edda, and the connection societies have had with Thor for hundreds of years, even up until today. Members Reviews: A good listen A somewhat academic approach at the background and evolution of the Norse mythology. The narration is clear albeit messy at times. Fascinating recounting of Norse mythology enjoyed listening and learned a lot. The pace at which the narrator moves through the material is brisk, so may have to listen through a second time.

It was written in 1898, first published in Blackwood's Magazine, and included as the first story in the 1902 volume "Youth, a Narrative, and Two Other Stories". The volume also included "Heart of Darkness" and "The End of the Tether", which are concerned with maturity and old age, respectively. "Youth" depicts a young man's first journey to the East. It is narrated by Charles Marlow who is also the narrator of "Lord Jim" and "Chance". Mr. Marlow seems to appear for the first time chronologically in Conrad's works. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: A young man's view of life aboard a sailing ship This is a tale of a young 2nd mate's first voyage in an old sailing ship that is trying to get to Bangkok, an exotic-sounding name that fills him with wonder. It's a hard-luck ship that has had to turn back three times before finally getting underway. But, why are the rats jumping ship ? It's very enjoyable reading, humourous at times. Conrad describes life at sea in a manner that makes you want to have lived in that era. What always amazes me is his vocabulary, the exactness of his words ("the pellucid sky") . And English was a second language to him ! He captures the enthusiasm and romantic vision of life in the 2nd mate's reaction to a gale : "To me [the ship] was not an old rattle-trap carting about the world a lot of coal for a freight -- to me she was the endeavor, the test, the trial of life..." The voyage continues without incident until, suddenly..... I also recommend you read his book "Typhoon". That one really keeps you on the edge of your seat. A Powerful Tale of Youth, Years, and the Sea This is a good story to read on a birthday, like my 65th yesterday, when you wonder where your youth went and what remains of it as you peer forward into the precious and unknown years ahead. one of Conrad's best A tale of the sea concisely and beautifully told through the eyes of a young man so hungry for adventure that he fails to do anything but enjoy life even at its most dangerous. Enjoyable by anyone. One of Conradâs best short novels. Good Old Sailing story The descriptions are so acurate and realistic it makes you feel as if you were on board from the beginning to the end.

It is the tale of Rama, the Prince of Ayodhya, who exiles himself to the forest for 14 years to honor his father's Word. In the forest, Rama, his wife, Sita, and his brother, Lakshmana, meet new friends and unusual foes, and each day brings new adventures. But Ravana of Lanka, the King of Demons, ruins it all by abducting Sita. To rescue her, Rama enlists the help of Hanuman and his monkey army. Members Reviews: Enchanting! I was transported back to my childhood. It was like a combination of bedtime stories - the monsters of Grimm's fairy tales, kings, queens, princesses and princes - gods like those of Olympus - monkey armies like The Wizard of Oz...all at the same time! Artfully read with various voices and inflections. It truly was enchanting! Pretty OK on all dimensions, do recommend Would you listen to The Ramayana again? Why? Yeah, I might. It's targeted towards children, and I think it does a good job of it. The narrator did a pretty good job, it's clear he tried very hard. Sometimes, he might have tried a little too hard (faking a female voice with falsetto is generally a bad idea), but I'm happy to forgive those shortcomings. Yes, I would listen to it again. What other book might you compare The Ramayana to and why? I suppose it would be comparable to "Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths," by Bernard Evslin, in both tone and intent. Which character as performed by Samrat Chakrabarti was your favorite? His rendition of the male characters are pretty good. If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be? This is a funny question, I'm not sure why I'm being asked this. Any additional comments? In summary, although some aspects of it were a bit annoying, they didn't take anything away from the underlying experience. It is an important piece of our human heritage, and told well for a modern audience. I would recommend it. Well performed, well written. This audiobook is performed well, by a man who knows how to pronounce everything. The text is brought to life in a fun and novel way. Better versions exist Not bad overall. Reader changed voices between characters which get annoying after a while. There are better versions of this book out there albeit not on audio. What did I just listen to? I can of feel bad for saying this, since this is India's great epic and all, but this book is ridiculous. It sounds like it was co-written by a toddler and a drunk. There's very little actual conflict in the story. I mean, Ram defeats an entire demon army by himself without breaking a sweat. That's just not interesting. The character development is extremely shallow. Also, it's just silly at times. I mean, "This person shoots a flame arrow but... wait! This person shoots a water arrow to counter!" It is filled with this ridiculous images that just come out of the blue and aren't really explained. It was decent at parts, but that's about all that can be said for this book Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Austin Freeman. Excerpt: Humphrey Challoner was a great savant spoiled by untimely wealth. When I knew him he had lapsed into a mere dilettante; at least, so I thought at the time, though subsequent revelations showed him in a rather different light. He had some reputation as a criminal anthropologist and had formerly been well known as a comparative anatomist, but when I made his acquaintance, he seemed to be occupied chiefly in making endless additions to the specimens in his private museum. This collection I could never quite understand. It consisted chiefly of human and other mammalian skeletons, all of which presented certain small deviations from the normal; but its object I could never make out - until after his death; and then, indeed, the revelation was a truly astounding one. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Macabre tale of obsession and revenge In this tightly plotted novel, we follow the bizarre career of a man who loathes criminals. Humphrey Challoner is a cultivated man and amateur scientist. His quiet happy life is destroyed one night when a burglar shoots and kills his young wife. For twenty years Humphrey hunts for the killer, in the process revenging himself on London's criminals class in a surprising and gruesome fashion. To say more would give too much away. Although both Humphrey and the plot have a narrow focus, the story is so full of lively incident, it held my interest throughout. Humphrey is amazingly resourceful and exhibits a delightfully macabre, donnish sense of humor. The writing style has an Edwardian flavor, although it was published in 1914 in the U.S. and in 1920 in Britain (under the title A Savant's Vendetta). Freeman was one of the greatest mystery writers, as demonstrated by his intricately plotted Dr. Thorndyke novels. This book feels like it was written as a diversion, just for fun. It also gives us a glimpse of how respectable people of the era felt about criminals, so it's of historic interest, as well as being quite entertaining. The moral dilemmas set forth invite discussion; you might want to share this book with a friend. The Resurrected Press edition has a very readable format, is nicely edited, and offers a short but informative introduction. I tend to favor this publisher's books over less reliable digital reprints. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Howard Narrator: Gregg Margarite Format: Unabridged Length: 3 hrs and 22 mins Language: English Release date: 06-16-17 Publisher: SAGA Egmont Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "Red Nails" is the last of the stories about Conan the Cimmerian written by American author Robert E. Howard. A novella, it was originally serialized in "Weird Tales" magazine from July to October 1936. It is set in the pseudo historical Hyborian Age and concerns Conan encountering a lost city in which the degenerate inhabitants are proactively resigned to their own destruction. Due to its grim themes of decay and death, the story is considered a classic of Conan lore and is often cited by Howard scholars as one of his best tales. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Five Stars ya can't go wrong with Conan THE BEST STORY BY ROBERT E.

The story is a really entertaining pulp tale and really does give a great flavour of why Conan has been such a popular character. It is maybe best to dip into this story as everything can begin to seem a bit samey once you have read a few chapters. The copyright seems to be in a confusing state. As Robert E Howard died in 1936 I believe that in the UK his work is now in the public domain so rather than pay for e-books you could legally download them for free. However I am not an expert on this but would like to avoid paying exploitative publishers. High adventure for the lowest cost! I started to read the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard from the Complete Chronicle's of Conan, hardcover edition that I bought from Amazon last year. It was the first time that I had ever read any of those stories and I've yet to read them all. All I can say from what I've read so far is that they are fantastic, I mean really good. Now with this free download from Amazon I'm reading the brilliance of Howard's creations via my kindle app on my smartphone. I'm about halfway through this ebook so far and I'm loving the story. I recommend both this kindle book and the beautiful hardcover both from Amazon, both bargains!! Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Orgueil et préjugés Auteur: Jane Austen Narrateur: Évelyne Lecucq Format: Unabridged Durée: 11 hrs and 7 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 05-08-13 Éditeur: Brumes de mars Evaluation: 5 sur 5 sur 15 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Elizabeth Bennet, l'une des quatre filles d'un hobereau de province anglais, voit arriver dans sa campagne un gentilhomme fortuné. Celui-ci s'intéresse à sa sœur Jane. L'ami du gentilhomme, encore mieux nanti, est peu cordial. Les Bennet ne l'apprécient pas. Mais l'évolution des situations et des circonstances va tout bouleverser et les résultats des joutes amoureuses réserveront bien des surprises. L'intérêt de ce récit réside dans la peinture ironique, parfois cruelle mais toujours avec humour, de la société anglaise du XVIIIe siècle. Les caractères sont bien campés et les dialogues savoureux. Plein de rebondissements, le récit ne connaît pas de longueur. Ce roman est considéré, à juste titre, comme le meilleur des six écrits par Jane Austen. L'auteure (1775 - 1817) est fille de pasteur. Après la mort de son père, ses conditions de vie sont précaires. Non mariée, elle passe l'essentiel de son temps à élever ses nombreux neveux et nièces en compagnie de sa soeur. C'est pour les distraire qu'elle commence à écrire, et puis l'intérêt porté à ses récits l'encourage à se lancer dans des oeuvres plus importantes. Bien que reconnue et appréciée, Jane Austen ne connaîtra pas, de son vivant, le succès que la postérité lui apportera.

This works best if it is a book that I have already listened to/read in English, as then the material is more familiar. For new languages, I will often try to listen to a book in parallel: say, 15 minutes of English, then 15 minutes of the other languages, etc. As of yet, there is a fairly limited selection of foreign language audiobooks available in the U.S. store, and an even smaller selection that are available in both English and a variety of other languages. (And, for some reason, the Spanish ones seem often to be abridged, which makes them much less useful for this type of "rosetta stone" parallel listening practice.) But it is slowly getting better. Congratulations to Audible for slowly increasing its foreign language material, and here is hoping that it will continue to do so. And perhaps some books in Mandarin and Arabic also?

L'endecasillabo dantesco non è fatto per restarsene silenzioso fra le pagine, ma per vibrare sonoro e potente, facendo risuonare le voci dei dannati dell'Inferno, dei penitenti del Purgatorio, delle anime beate del Paradiso, dando vita a quello che non è soltanto viaggio nell'aldilà, ma un autentico percorso nell'animo umano. Please note: This audiobook is in Italian. Recensioni dei membri: Il sommo poeta in una pessima lettura Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Don't listen to this unless you want to hear how the words are pronounced. The reader is Italian but he has no sense of what he is reading. Neanche morto! What did you like best about this story? The poem is the greatest ever written -- if we consider not only the profundity of its content but the overall architecture of the 14,233 lines crafted into a magnificent whole. How did the narrator detract from the book? He doesn't feel what he is reading. He makes Dante sound like a nursery rhyme. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It tells the story of some remarkable women, each of whom has a unique experience with love. The book follows in Reed's long history of inciting laughter and tears in her readers through provocative prose. She was often witty in dialogue and dispensing in advice, while gingerly skirting the moral issues. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Started well and went downhill by the end I was very much engaged in this book at the beginning. It began well, like a good detective story. I settled in for a fun read. But after the romance began, it started to break down. The romance was okay, even if a bit sugary sweet; there were some funny moments and I enjoyed the couples repartee. But then silliness broke through and the end was obvious quite soon and too sweet for consumption. Still, it was a light read when you need something mindless and don't want anyone to see you veging out in front of the small screen. You look more intellectual this way. Who wins at love? Yes, this was written about a century ago, but people's emotion haven't changed. Quite a story of four women and who wins at love. Ms. Reed expertly presents each one's personality type and great dialogue. Wish our society today kept the politeness of yesteryear. Don't think it's a maudlin romance. To the contrary, it's full of characters that could easily adapt to a current bestseller and the intanglements kept my interest until the end. Recommended. lavender and old lace lavender and old lace is a book that can be read 100 yrs from now and still be as appreciated, same as when it was written. one of the best stories i have ever read. i bought and read the story 30 yrs ago and still have the book, i just wanted to re-read it on my kindle. Mysterious romance classic..... Lavender and Old Lace is truly an old classic --- that should and will be enjoyed by people of all ages both young and old. Speaks of a time that was much more romantic then now but a time of old morals and ethics. It's a lovely love story with a mystery that all comes out in the end! Would recommend to almost anyone! Lavender and Old Lace This book is an old classic and I enjoyed reading about the mores and customs of yesteryear. It was a time of real romance. I think we would be better off adopting some of those customs today. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Tartar Khan (prince), Feofar Khan, incites a rebellion and separates the Russian Far East from the mainland, severing telegraph lines. Rebels encircle Irkutsk, where the local governor, a brother of the Tsar, is making a last stand. Strogoff is sent to Irkutsk to warn the governor about the traitor Ivan Ogareff, a former colonel, who was once demoted and exiled and now seeks revenge against the imperial family. On his way to Irkutsk, Strogoff meets Nadia. He is supposed to travel under a false identity, but he is discovered by the Tartars when he meets his mother in their home city of Omsk. Michael, his mother and Nadia are taken prisoner by the Tartars. Ivan Ogareff alleges that Michael is a spy. After opening the Koran at random, Feofar decides that Michael will be blinded as punishment in the Tartar fashion, with a hot blade... ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Little known Jules Verne Jules Verne was known for his scifi stories, not heroic tragedies. This is a novel of sweeping adventure and travel. A dashing young soldier from the Cossack Steppes volunteers to carry a warning message from the current Czar to his brother in Irkutsk, a thousand miles away from St. Petersburg. The Tatars and others are attacking. It is up to Michael Strogoff to find a way to make the trip, snaking through enemy lines, witnessing the tragic procession of disenfranchised and beaten refugees and battered czarist soldiers, being beaten and blinded after witnessing the hideous torture of his mother, meeting a valiant young girl, and continuing on in spite of the terrors. The time is during the middle of the 1800s. I wish Steven Spielburg had filmed this as a movie. Stand back, Indiana Jones. ... in junior high and always remembered it as a good read so I recommended it to my husband I read this in junior high and always remembered it as a good read so I recommended it to my husband. He just finished it and really enjoyed it so I am going to read it again. Jules Verne obviously traveled a great deal in Russia to be familiar with all the customs, names, geography. It's sort of a period piece so may seem a bit hokey compared to modern political suspense novels. This is Jules Verne's best novel This is my favorite Verne novel. If you can get past Verne telling you about 19th century Russia chances are you'll enjoy this adventure story. Be warned though, this is not a science fiction story like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This is more like his other classic Around the World in 80 Days. It is an adventure story that has a scientific phenomenon as a plot device. Verne liked to teach and inform people through his writings. Therefore, in this novel there is a lot of information about Russia since that was the subject he was teaching about in this novel. But, when you get past that there is also a great 19th century spy/Adventure story about the trials of a courier travelling 4000 miles through Russia into Siberia in the midst of a Tartar rebellion. First read it 45 years ago and loved it. Now First read it 45 years ago and loved it. Now, it's not as good as I remembered but I understand the history and geography better. Revisitation This was a classic I had not read in many years. I found it as enjoyable during this recent re-read as it was then. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Her journey teaches her many things not taught in the classroom - the joys, tears, laughter, and beauty of life...and the overwhelming power of love. Members Reviews: Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 stars Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 stars. This particular printing, however, is completely unacceptable. It's as if someone typed it into a document, and printed it off--no page numbers, not titled at the top of each page, the lines don't even break properly (see photo). Purchased as a gift, thankfully with enough time to purchase a better quality copy--probably for less money! A disgrace to the publishing community. I LOVED Anne of Green Gables as a child and own ... I LOVED Anne of Green Gables as a child and own the complete hard copy of the Anne series. Initially, I was delighted to find this collection of books written by one of my all time favorite authors for only $0.99 (kindle price. What a steal!) and felt I had to get the digital copy for my kindle at once. As soon as the product was delivered to my device, I began to read it since it's been years since I've visited the darling world that L.M Montgomery created. I was very surprised to find that I kept tripping on certain sentences; the writing didn't seem as smooth as I remembered. When I got to chapter 6, I decided to compare a sentence in the digital print to my old, yellowing physical copy of Anne of Green Gables book. I realized why I had some difficulty reading my new digital copy: THERE ARE TYPOS IN THIS PRODUCT. It contains the WORST kinds of typos. There are typos in which it results in sentences that don't make sense. There are typos with the wrong pronouns in them that make it confusing for the reader to understand which character the publisher meant to write about. I am able to follow the story because I've read Anne of Green Gables more than once with my hard copy but for new readers, these typos will make this beautiful story difficult to read and at times, understand. I hope the digital copy can be fixed so that owners can enjoy L.M. Montgomery's work as it was meant to be enjoyed. I have given this two stars instead of one because of the fabulous price for kindle readers. Bizarre Illustrations The illustrations are actually random pictures that are creepy since they are in the beginning when Anne meets Mathew Cuthbert so they insinuate a romance between them. And the free audiobook is click bait to set you up to download an app and give your email address to spammers. Screen shots of the "illustrations" below. who woulda thunk Two years ago I would have bet a bazillion dollars I would never read a "girls" book. But at 71 years of age I found myself in a house full of books only one of which I had not read. I am terrribly addicted to reading so, in desperation, I started "Anne of Green Gables". It is a marvelous book with a main character I wish I could meet every day in real life. Again to feed my addiction I bought the "Anne of Green Gables" series. Each book was a delight and I soon forgot that they were "girls" books. Maud created a character we all need in our life. She turns the mundane magical and believable.

Here we have the full story, with all its Jewish humour, wisdom and despair. The central character, Tevye the Milkman, goes around the community in the Russian countryside delivering milk and cheese, but also dispensing wisdom from the Talmud laced with his commonsense view of life. Funny, enriching but also moving, this remarkable little Jewish classic will charm all who hear it, especially in the reading by veteran audiobook performer Neville Jason. Editorial Reviews: Neville Jasons performance makes Tevyes Yiddish wit, wisdom, and melancholy utterly believable. Tevye, whom listeners will know from the popular musical Fiddler on the Roof, recounts the tales of his familys daily life under the iron fist of the Russian tsar. Jason makes Tevye more than a milkman, but rather a philosopher of commonsense with a keen eye for irony. With subtlety and nuance, Jason masters Tevyes self-deprecating humor. As all the misery and wretchedness of the world pour down on his head, Jasons Tevye seems to shrug his shoulders and move on. Delightful listening.

You will also receive the following bonus audiobooks: Love and Friendship, by Jane Austin. A satirical romance audiobook. Aunt Crete's Emancipation, by Grace Livingston Hill. A sweet older woman, who acts as a domestic servant to her sisters, finds herself in a peculiar situation when she is home alone and a "backwoods" cousin arrives at the front door. Secret Agent, by Joseph Conrad. Adolf Verloc sees terrible consequences when he is pressured into planning a terrorist act. Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell. A fictional autobiographical memoir told by a horse who recounts many tales of both cruelty and kindness. The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame. A group of animal friends in the countryside as they pursue adventure. Members Reviews: Long on "Tell", Short on "Show" Nathaniel Hawthorne's gift for style is indefatigable. Throughout the novel, his command of language delivers masterful prose dense with descriptive power. And therein lies his great weakness. He has a genius for mining the meaning from every action, every movement, indeed, every word of dialogue, but in his exegetical fervor he neglects to simply describe what is happening. What little description he provides is overshadowed by the towering commentary surrounding it. Perhaps that is why the Puritans are held in such a dismal light in this novel: aside from their intolerance serving as a plot device, they were known for their exegetical prowess, and Hawthorne simply detested in others what was never fully realized within himself. (This speculation serves only to amuse myself.) Nevertheless, this novel ought to be mandatory reading for all Americans and all students of American culture. Readers and writers alike will only come away from it aesthectically edified and intellectually enhanced. Good story. Not so good book. I liked the story very much. It was a good story and my enjoyment of it was much more than I expected to get out of it. The writing bothered me though. It was a "tell, don't show" book instead of the usual "show don't tell". The characters would have been much more interesting if we actually got to see the experiences that we were told about or if we were shown an actual conversation instead of the majority of conversions just being relayed via the narrator. Captivating read It is a classic for a reason...the story is spell-bounding and, once you start it, you won't want to put it down if you're a reader like me? The sacrifices this woman made for her daughter were of the nature only a loving and sorrowful Mother could be capable of. Highly reccomended slow at first, the author is telling of his own world experience Not necessarily a religious story, but one filled with humanity. The young fly into life. This story helps illumine the sometimes treacherous path testing each human heart. Therefore, it is worth pausing and listening to the silence that tells of more than surface, but fills the true space of life that requires living truly. Hester is truly a heroine of our times. She never denies the worst in herself as if to conceal...but plainly communicates who she is always in unvarnished clarity for the service of anyone, but especially pearl. Her strength in the worst is to be highly lauded.

Kenny (translator) Narrator: Grover Gardner Format: Unabridged Length: 10 hrs and 25 mins Language: English Release date: 05-12-11 Publisher: Audio Book Contractors, Inc. Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 65 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: This unique poetic translation by Herbert A. Kenny, historian and poet, is the first that incorporates the Biblical, theological and historical allusions of the greatest poem in Christendom into the text itself. It can now be appreciated without a glossary or accompanying notes. Listen as the liquid lines take you through the horrors of the "Inferno", the mysteries of "Purgatorio" and the glories of "Paradiso". Members Reviews: Built-in study guide I purchased this title several months ago on CD and have been hoping for some time that Audible would make it available. It's an unusual version of the Divine Comedy: a fresh translation with a kind of built-in study guide. Brief explanations of most of the allusions in this complex poem are woven into the text. For example, where Dante might refer to "the Eagle," this translation says: "the Eagle, emblem of the Empire." There is one drawback to this, and that is that Dante's allusions are not always so clear-cut. The translator has typically chosen a single concrete tag line among the many possible annotations. But this audiobook is an introduction, not a substitute for an intensive study of Dante. It's meant to be an enjoyable and comprehensible audiobook, something that will give you more of the Divine Comedy on a first listen than you can get from most of the others available. I've read the Commedia several times in a variety of translations, and despite my familiarity with many of the passages, I found these small additions to the text quite helpful. It's easy when reading the poem to forget who was a Guelph and who was a Ghibelline; this audiobook helps you keep it straight. Although I haven't seen the text in print (I'm not sure if it's even available), the translation appears to be prose. The translator has tried to capture some of the poetic energy of the work by making extensive use of alliteration rather than rhyme. Most of the time this works admirably; sometimes it's a strain. Grover Gardner, a Virgil among readers, gives his usual sterling narration. I would suggest, if you do get this, that you listen to it in small doses. Despite the helpful features of the translation, Dante's poem remains dense with symbol and meaning. There's a lot to take in. Go slow and savor. A Timeless Depiction Done to Absolute Perfection.. Dante did a masterful job here and coupled with the excellent narrative by Grover Gardner this was without a doubt a true joy to listen to. The imagery created by Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso was done immensely well. I found Dante's depiction of Inferno (Hell) exceptionally well written and the translation of Herbert Kenny seems to have done it justice. I personally thought that it was the best of the three explained in this prose. I say that not to take away from the impact that Purgatorio (Limbo) and Paradiso (Heaven) created because those two (2) sections were also quite impressively worded and translated. One would think that due to the somewhat specific mention that was made to certain persons, places and cultural idiosyncrasies that was very evident in the book that it would be difficult to follow at times but I found it very easy to follow.

Though he first conceived of the story in the late 1890s, he did not begin writing it until 1902. After struggling for several years, he finally completed the story in 1904; however, it was not published until some of Tolstoy's shorter works were collected and anthologized after his death in 1910. The story is divided into two parts. In Part I, schoolboy Mitya is in desperate need of money to repay a debt, but his father angrily denies him assistance. Dejected, under the instigation of a friend Makhin, Mitya simply changes a $2.50 note to read $12.50, but this one evil deed sets off a chain of events that affects the lives of dozens of others, when his one falsehood indirectly causes a man to murder a woman at the end of Part I, and then seek redemption through religion in Part II. Having written the novella in his dying years, after his excommunication, Tolstoy relishes the chance to unveil the "pseudo-piety and hypocrisy of organized religion." Yet, he maintains an unwavering belief in man's capacity to find truth, so the story remains hopeful, especially in Part II, which shows that good works can affect another as in a domino effect, just as evil does in Part I. The novella has also been translated with the title The Counterfeit Note and The Forged Banknote. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Editorial Reviews: Confucianism is a philosophical school of thought regarding ethics and ideas that has been a major force in Chinese political, social, and personal life since the time of Confucius in the 6th century BCE. The words of Confucius, while encompassing a complete body of thought, are easily quotable, and here is a thoughtful collection of his anecdotes, sayings, and teachings. For this audiobook Fleet Coopers calm, soothing performance lets these aphorisms breathe in a way that would make perfect listening for the car or quiet contemplation. Members Reviews: For those who prize courtesy and civility, ... ... or perhaps as a learning experience for those who do not, but should, this book is a wonderful tonic. I usually choose books on the chaos and conflicts of history and modern life, but this one cleanses the palate mentally. It calms and relaxes me, and helps me get composed for another day amidst the noise and clamor of humanity. It reminds me of those quiet virtues that are the vast (often unsung) treasure of any functioning society. These are summed up in the person of the "gentleman," as Confucious' terms are translated. In book reviews elsewhere, I have seen criticism heaped on Confucious for what some see as anti-creativity. I can only feel sorry for the people who can't appreciate what is here. I will keep this one to replay whenever I get too caught up in the frenzies of humanity's anxiusness and "creative destruction." The Master said, 'It is only the most intelligent and the most stupid who are not susceptible to change." - Confucius, The Analects, XVII.3 I rarely re-read books. An exception to this rule are ethical or religious texts. I love Meditations by Marcus Aurelius and will read this in dribs and drabs throughout the year. The same is true of the New Testament, the Wisdom Books, Psalms, parts of the Book of Mormon, and the Analects. I am drawn to some of the more universal teachings in these books (the Golden Rule seems to find a spot everywhere). Anyway, I'm still trying to avoid thinking too much about Trump by reading a book a day and so I figured this was a good time to read, again, the Analects* (I'm working on a longer book so, I rely on the help of smaller books to keep me one my 1-per-day pace). I am not sure if I've come across a translation I prefer, but I've read several now. Because I don't actually read Chinese, I'm not I guess looking for the perfect translation. I'm looking for one that seems to dance with the right amount of poetry and truth. I'm getting closer and feel as I read the different translations I can circle around some of the truth of what was originally spoken without ever hearing the original text. For example, consider the opening quote: The Master said, "There are only the wise of the highest class, and the stupid of the lowest class, who cannot be changed." - James Legge translation Confucius said: Only the most wise and the most foolish do not change. - A.

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Les Frères Karamazov Auteur: Fédor Dostoïevski Narrateur: Vincent Violette Format: Unabridged Durée: 33 hrs and 31 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 11-27-14 Éditeur: Audible Studios Evaluation: 4.5 sur 5 sur 11 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Il y a le père, Fiodor Pavlovich, riche, malhonnête et débauché, et ses trois fils légitimes : Mitia, impulsif, orgueilleux, sauvage ; Yvan, intellectuel, raffiné, intransigeant ; Aliocha, sincère, pieux, naïf. Et puis il y a le fils illégitime, Smerdiakov, libertin cynique vivant en serviteur chez son père. L'un d'eux sera parricide. Roman complet et flamboyant, Les Frères Karamazov rassemble une intrigue policière, plusieurs histoires d'amour, des exposés théologiques et métaphysiques éblouissants et des personnages inoubliables déchirés par leurs conflits intérieurs. Sans doute le chef-dœuvre de Dostoïevski. >> Ce livre audio en version intégrale vous est proposé en exclusivité par Audible et est uniquement disponible en téléchargement. © Domaine Public (P)2014 Audible FR Avis des membres: Beautifully read masterpiece The Brothers Karamazov is obviously one of the masterpieces of world literature. (Well, I know that Nabokov and the prominent Dutch scholar of Russian literature Karel van het Reve found Dostoyevsky overrated, but whatever weaknesses he has, if any, the vividness, the storyline lurching ever onwards, the psychological and philosophical depth - all make him irresistible to me). The work is read with real panache, and Vincent Violette enunciates extremely clearly, ideal for me, as I often find spoken French hard to follow. I have been working at my French on and off over a period of more than forty years, and have recently picked it up again in anticipation of a forthcoming stay in France. I came across this French version of The Brothers Karamazov by accident, and it immediately struck me how much easier I found it to make out the spoken words than with the other French audiobooks I've been trying to listen to (often not very well recorded technically, either). That the reading is also lively, expressive and varied makes it even less of an effort to follow; the story just draws one along. I look forward to listening to Vincent Violette's reading of the French version of Crime and Punishment, which should be just as good. This has been one of the most rewarding audiobooks I've ever listened to in any language. Hats off to Vincent Violette, and old Fyodor D! Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

I'm not sure how to write this review, as my edition is in French. I also have the novel in English, so I should explain. A year and a half at Domaine de Crocqueville outside Bordeaux when I was 8/9 years old left me with with more than a rudimentary linguistic capability that was essentially lost after sixty years of non-practice. Reading the English version, alongside the French, brings back the memories, which are never really lost. This is my second novel to read in this manner, the first being "Des Souris et Des Hommes", John Steinbeck's classic "Of Mice and Men". "Frankenstein", of course, is more difficult in both language and plot, and it is a second step in reacquiring a language. I'm "summering" in Cannes this year, so will have an additional chance to practice. In any language, "Frankenstein" is a gripping tale of human brilliance and resulting discrimination and can be read again and again. One Star This is a machine translation. The text doesn't make any sense. Do not buy this book! Contactez-moi pour toute question: inforeq17@gmail.com

This work, known primarily for its erotic realism, is also a landmark in the development of the narrative art form - not only from a specifically Chinese perspective but in a world-historical context. Members Reviews: Excellent narration and rollicking story George Backman is a terrific narrator for this. He can handle the Chinese names effortlessly and he catches the spirit of the soap opera characters, bed scenes, insults and general conniving. Yes, it is in one sense a seemingly endless portrayal of a superficial, wealthy, randy young Chinese businessman and his wives/concubines, drinking parties, etc in 1100s China. But it is also a discerning portrayal of human psychology and a picture of Chinese life across most classes during the 1600s, when it was actually written. If you think of it as like a multi-year television program, well written and weaving together the threads of several plot lines while beguling you with descriptions of suculent feasts and beautiful clothes, youll get into the spirit of the thing and commit to multiple volumes. Again, Backman is flawless and makes the book. Do note that it is frankly written in occasional bed scenes, so you wouldnt want to listen in a car with children.

Als zweite von fünf Töchtern eines nicht eben vermögenden Angehörigen der englischen Gentry, ist sie gezwungen, sich möglichst vorteilhaft zu verheiraten und muss doch ihrem Herzen folgen, das ihr verbietet, eine Ehe ohne echte Zuneigung einzugehen. Voller Vertrauen in ihre eigene Urteilsfähigkeit weist sie folglich sowohl den selbstgefälligen Mr. Collins als auch den stolzen Mr. Darcy ab - und erkennt ihre Verblendung erst, als es beinahe zu spät ist. Mitglieder Bewertungen: Great for Language Comprehension Practice I like to listen to books in other languages for language practice. This works best if it is a book that I have already listened to/read in English, as then the material is more familiar. For new languages, I will often try to listen to a book in parallel: say, 15 minutes of English, then 15 minutes of the other languages, etc. As of yet, there is a fairly limited selection of foreign language audiobooks available in the U.S. store, and an even smaller selection that are available in both English and a variety of other languages. (And, for some reason, the Spanish ones seem often to be abridged, which makes them much less useful for this type of "rosetta stone" parallel listening practice.) But it is slowly getting better. Congratulations to Audible for slowly increasing its foreign language material, and here is hoping that it will continue to do so. And perhaps some books in Mandarin and Arabic also?

"The Hill of Dreams" of the title is an old Roman fort where Lucian has strange sensual visions, including ones of the town in the time of Roman Britain. Later it describes Lucian's attempts to make a living as an author in London, enduring poverty and suffering in the pursuit of art. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: I had never read Arthur Machen before. This book ... I had never read Arthur Machen before. This book lives up to its title. The dreamworld is both dark, vivid, and strange. And the main character is definitely an archetypal tortured artist that most of us creative folk can very much relate to. And I did not expect it to end the way it did. Well worth the read. Pleasantly Surprised Thought this book was out of print, but was pleasantly surprised that it was available for ordering. Bought as a gift & recipient was elated at my purchase. Packed sufficiently enough & arrived rather quickly. Great job! Arthur Machen's autobiographic masterpiece Arthur Machen, one of the 20th Century's most talented writers of supernatural horror fiction, published Hill of Dreams, his autobiographic novel, in 1907. The novel concerns a gifted young writer, Lucien Taylor, whose calling to write great (not just good) works of literature dooms him to self-destruction. The novel follows Lucien's life from boyhood until his mid-twenties. Lucien grows up in a rural village in Wales near the ruins of an ancient Roman fortress (Machen himself grew up in Caerleon, Wales near the ruins of the Roman citadel, Isca Silurum). While exploring these ruins, Lucien undergoes a mystical awakening and becomes fascinated with ancient Roman culture, paganism and the supernatural. His imagination is so captured, it is only a matter of time until he starts to write fiction with supernatural and pagan themes. While still in his teens, Lucien sends a manuscript to a publishing firm. The publisher rejects the manuscript. A few months later, Lucien purchases a newly-published novel which contains entire chapters lifted from his "rejected" manuscript. Saddened and angered, Lucien again wanders to the Roman ruins. There, he happens to meet a neighbor girl and has a sexual encounter which he associates with the fauns and nymphs of Roman mythology. Lucien's imagination is so active that the border between reality and fantasy is sometimes blurred. In an effort to reach new heights of imagination and expression, Lucien begins to induce mystic experiences and trances. He dabbles in the occult, engages in masochistic rituals and starves himself to induce visions. His neighbors and relatives notice the changes in Lucien and encourage him to eat, to get plenty of rest, to give up writing and to pursue a real occupation. Unexpectedly, Lucien receives an inheritance which enables him to move to London and devote himself to writing full time. By this time, Lucien is caught in a downward spiral of increasingly disturbing visions, induced by a number of unhealthy methods. He manages to completely erase the border between fantasy and reality, but ironically, he has so disabled himself that he can no longer write coherently. Machen's story reads almost like poetry and is told in an artful, subtle fashion.

This work, known primarily for its erotic realism, is also a landmark in the development of narrative art--not only from a specifically Chinese perspective but in a world-historical context. With the possible exception of The Tale of Genji (1010) and Don Quixote (1615), there is no earlier work of prose fiction of equal sophistication in world literature. Although its importance in the history of Chinese narrative has long been recognized, the technical virtuosity of the author, which is more reminiscent of the Dickens of Bleak House, the Joyce of Ulysses, or the Nabokov of Lolita than anything in the earlier Chinese fiction tradition, has not yet received adequate recognition. This is partly because all of the existing European translations are either abridged or based on an inferior recension of the text. This translation and its annotation aim to faithfully represent and elucidate all the rhetorical features of the original in its most authentic form and thereby enable the Western reader to appreciate this Chinese masterpiece at its true worth. Members Reviews: A Real Plum of a Book Any additional comments? An elegant and eloguent work of literature. Excellent translation and an excellent reading of the work.

Faced with Gemma, the most beautiful girl he has ever seen, he is blown away by the spring torrents of love. But fate has a challenge in store for Sanin, one he must successfully overcome or else he will lose his chance of future happiness. This tale of struggle against the force of natural passion speaks to the hearts of all who have experienced the fragile beauty of first love and the dark power of desire. Members Reviews: A slight but compelling tale Neville Jason does a great job with this slight but compelling tale. Turgenev lays out the story with simplicity. Sanin, a Russian visiting Frankfurt, meets and falls in love with an Italian girl whose family runs a confectioner's shop. But to marry her, he needs money. So he visits the wife of an acquaintance to make arrangements to sell his estate. This woman, Madame Polisov, is almost shockingly modern. She and her husband have an "arrangement." He has no interest in her sexually, and the feeling is more than mutual, which leaves her with complete freedom to do as she pleases. "Freedom" appears to be one of her favorite words. She decides to seduce Sanin, apparently to feed her own vanity: she does it because she can. Turgenev's characters are sympathetically drawn; even Madame Polisov - the most vividly alive character in the book - retains her essential humanity. It's a poignant tale, a tale of regret and loss. No Hollywood endings here. The book ends quietly, logically, and sadly. A missed opportunity Any additional comments? The impression I get from this novel is that it is written by an incredibly gifted author whose talents, sadly, have left him. Yet there are flashes of brilliance here and there, and perhaps that's why Turgenev wrote the novel in the first place, perhaps he was overcome with a flash of inspiration that he eventually had to see to the bitter end, just like our 'hero'. To read the novel in such a meta way would make this a brilliant novel, but after what I thought was a promising start, quickly becomes a bit tedious, empty of real feeling, and of not much consequence. I think the biggest problem with the novel is that we never really know Sanin. Yes he's very good looking and this has quite the effect on the people around him (young women), and we know he's given to flights of quick passion that keeps the plot moving along, but aside from that he's sort of an empty shell. And of course that is exactly what Turgenev wanted to give us, Sanin is supposed to be a young, handsome, wealthy, and utterly shallow person. However, that does not make for the most interesting character to follow around through every page of a novel. So at the whim of everyone else around him is he that almost nothing really happens aside from total chance (his initial meeting of Gemma, the gust of wind, the meeting of Polozov; all chance). Yet again, from a meta point of view, Turgenev must have known that this is exactly the story he wanted to tell. He wanted to take a shallow young landowner (one who owned serfs, otherwise known as slaves) and turn him into a fool and a slave.

I have always loved Nathaniel Hawthorne. I have always loved the Old Man of the Mountain in New Hampshire (USA). That said, I'm clearly biased here. Great book, fantastic price through Kindle app. I will chuck this and go to a book store and find a good reading copy The problem isn't Hawthorne, it's the edition. Very small print. A nuisance. I will chuck this and go to a book store and find a good reading copy. Great Stone Face no longer! Though I am partial to this yarn, I think that it's only fair to warn the reader that the Old Man of the Mountains tumbled off his perch a few years ago. I stood on his forehead one day in July, thirty-five years ago, and wrote about that experience and the Old Man inThe Country Northward. At that time, the profile was held together by steel rods, eye-bolts, and a plastic bandage to keep the rain out. Alas, the patch didn't hold, and Hawthorne's Great Stone Face collapsed due to erosion, the power of ice, and the vibration from automobiles and trucks grinding to the height of land in Franconia Notch.

Gatsby le Magnifique Livre Audio par Francis Scott Fitzgerald

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Gatsby le Magnifique Auteur: Francis Scott Fitzgerald Narrateur: Emmanuel Dekoninck Format: Unabridged Durée: 6 hrs and 8 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 06-03-13 Éditeur: Audiolib Evaluation: 5 sur 5 sur 1 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Nous sommes au lendemain de la Grande Guerre, le mal du siècle envahit les âmes. C'est l'époque de la Prohibition et des fortunes rapides. En 1922, Jay Gatz, désormais Gatsby, se retrouve fabuleusement riche. Mille légendes courent sur son compte, qui n'empêchent pas les gens chics - et moins chics - de venir en troupe boire ses cocktails et danser sur ses pelouses. Gatsby le Magnifique joue la carte des folles dépenses pour éblouir Daisy, mariée à Tom Buchanan, un héritier millionnaire. Le jour où l'espoir de conquérir sa bien-aimée s'évanouit, la fête prend fin brutalement... Gatsby le Magnifique est un des romans emblématiques de la littérature américaine du XXe siècle. L'interprétation d'Emmanuel Dekoninck met parfaitement en lumière le mélange de naïveté et de rouerie qui tisse le destin de Gatsby, au milieu des extravagances d'une société enivrée de sa démesure naissante. Né en 1886 à Saint-Paul (Minnesota) dans une famille de la petite bourgeoisie. Il intègre rapidement Princeton, quil quitte pour se consacrer à la poésie. Il rejoint par la suite larmée, où il fait la connaissance de Zelda Sayre, dont il tombe rapidement amoureux. Les deux amants choisissent alors de sinstaller en France, et cest à Paris que lauteur écrit son chef-dœuvre Gatsby le Magnifique, qui remporte immédiatement les faveurs des critiques et provoque lenthousiasme dErnest Hemingway. Francis Scott Fitzgerald, écrivain de renom et touche-à-tout, est aujourdhui considéré comme le représentant de toute une génération, celle de lère du Jazz. Le narrateur Interprète de théâtre reconnu et apprécié, metteur en scène et également compositeur de musique, vit en Belgique. ©1996-2007 Pour la nouvelle traduction by Eleanor Lanahan, Matthew J.

Orgueil et préjugés Livre Audio par Jane Austen

Écoutez ce livre audio dans son intégralité gratuitement sur http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titre: Orgueil et préjugés Auteur: Jane Austen Narrateur: Mélodie Richard Format: Unabridged Durée: 11 hrs and 18 mins Langue: Français Date de publication: 06-24-16 Éditeur: Éditions Thélème Evaluation: 5 sur 5 sur 2 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Résumé de l'éditeur: Orgueil et préjugés est sans doute le plus romanesque et le plus anglais des romans anglais. L'histoire des cinq filles Bennet selon le point de vue de la cadette, Elisabeth, est une peinture des mœurs du début du XIXe siècle : la bonne société, ses codes et ses carcans, les questions de l'argent et du mariage sont au premier plan pour ces jeunes filles, dont l'avenir dépend entièrement des hommes. Jane Austen a écrit le portrait de femmes et le contexte d'une époque, avec humour et élégance, livrant ainsi un grand classique de la littérature qu'on ne se lasse de redécouvrir. © Domaine public (P)2006 Éditions Thélème Avis des membres: Orgueil et Prejuges I'm an American with fair, conversational French. The reviews by several French reviewers confirmed some of my suspicions, namely that the translation was probably done by a computer ... and rather badly, even to my American ear. When the computer got "stuck", it simply left the English word in place. This occurs frequently. Also, on occasion, the translation is simply wrong, usually by making a literal translation of an idiomatic expression. A good translation would have a more elegant and flowing quality. I agree that the translation can't have been reviewed by anyone who both understood English well, and also spoke good French. All that being said, I still find it useful to read a French translation of a book in English which I both love and know well. I KNOW what to expect next. The mis-translations, or failures to translate, are not sufficiently annoying to stop me from reading it. The Pleasure of Jane in French A very nice translation; it carries her sly humor excellently; the context allows interpretation of words that may not come quickly to mind; that's the 5 stars. I would recommend it to all who love Jane; and for students of French who would like a treat as they learn -- the usual texts in French classes are often a classical yawn! Five Stars Excellent condition. Haven't stated reading it yet to comment on the translation. Overall very satisfied A delightful read What could be better than this classic by Jane Austin. I fell in love with Darcy all over again, despaired with Elizabeth over her ridiculous mother, and totally enjoyed being with the Bennett family. Catastrophe! Ce livre doit avoir été "traduit" par un logiciel de la première heure. Il n'est pas lisible et il ne faut donc pas l'acquérir. Mme gratuit, c'est une mauvaise affaire.

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Cricket on the Hearth (Golden Deer Classics) Author: Charles Dickens Narrator: Janet Paulson Format: Abridged Length: 3 hrs and 53 mins Language: English Release date: 11-24-17 Publisher: Oregan Publishing Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 2 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "The Cricket on the Hearth" is a novella by Charles Dickens, written in 1845. It is the third of Dickens' five Christmas books, the others being "A Christmas Carol" (1843), "The Chimes" (1844), "The Battle of Life" (1846), and "The Haunted Man" (1847). John Peerybingle, a carrier, lives with his young wife Dot, their baby boy and their nanny Tilly Slowboy. A cricket chirps on the hearth and acts as a guardian angel to the family. One day a mysterious elderly stranger comes to visit and takes up lodging at Peerybingle's house for a few days. ©2017 Oregan Publishing (P)2017 Oregan Publishing Members Reviews: This Narrator Makes the Difference This lesser-known Dickens Christmas story was more popular in its day than "A Christmas Carol," though its sentimental depiction of a sweet wife and super-sweet blind girl borders on saccharine for modern tastes. Dickens is the master of characterization and delivers plenty of gentle humor in this tale of threat to hearth and home. Jumping to conclusions or creating a false reality provide the drama, which is -- as expected -- comfortingly resolved. I've listened to other versions, and what makes this one stand out is how lovingly rendered the narration is. Paulson infuses her reading with such warmth and affection that I kept imagining myself sitting by the fireside in Victorian England, with all the time in the world to get to know the gentle giant John, his eager-to-please wife Dot, clumsy but well-meaning Tilly, and the rest.

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Magnificent Ambersons Author: Booth Tarkington Narrator: Lawrence Skinner Format: Unabridged Length: 10 hrs and 57 mins Language: English Release date: 12-20-17 Publisher: Audioliterature Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "The Magnificent Ambersons" is a novel by Booth Tarkington. It traces the growth of the United States through the declining fortunes of three generations of the aristocratic Amberson family, between the end of the Civil War and the early 20th century, a period of rapid industrialization and socio-economic change in America. The decline of the Ambersons is contrasted with the rising of industrial tycoons and new-money families, who derived power not from family names but by "doing things". The titular family is the most prosperous and powerful in town at the turn of the century. The patriarch's grandson is spoiled terribly by his mother. Growing up arrogant, sure of his own worth and position, and totally oblivious to the lives of others, George falls in love with Lucy Morgan. But there is a long history between George's mother and Lucy's father, of which George is unaware... ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: How they used to write them. Bottom line first Booth Tarkintonâs The Magnificent Ambersonâs was the Pulitzer Prize Winner of 1919 and remains a book beloved by many. I cannot say that it is close to being my favorite, but it is easy to agree with those who praise it. When folks talk about how books used to be written. The Magnificient Ambersons is one of those books. No objectionable language violence or sex. It has respect for traditions and church. More than this, Tarkington has a story to tell. It could easily have been hackneyed and trite. Instead this is a story about class, and the times changing but from a less expected point of view. The language of the story telling and point of view give it more than ample reading value. Still it is not one of my favorites. The fact that it is a free E Read should help your decision. I had no problems with the technical work of the volunteers who converted the text. The opening pages do a wonderful job of introducing the reader to a time several generations back. Olives for example are a rich personâs extravagance and the reader is advised that you have to eat at least nine if you are ever to enjoy eating them. Indeed the special, exalted status of the new created super rich is introduced as a central theme in a manner so home spun and low key as to almost sneak by. A beautiful woman is of course going to get a certain respect, but a rich, beautiful young woman is to be believed and differed to in all things. Not so much the spoiled male child of the townâs leading money family. George Amberson Minafer is a spoiled, petted, bully. He is self-important blind to others, including his family and incapable of thinking that he should ever do anything except be and by being show the riffraff how life should be lived. From the beginning we will share the townâs hope that he will one day receive his comeuppance. It will be a long time coming and in coming it will not be anything like what the reader might expect. I like this book. Many years ago I had stumbled upon Tarkingtonâs Penrod books and felt them to be more believable than Mark Twainâs version of adolescent boys. The Ambersonâs is a more complex and nuanced novel. I found it a little slow. Towards the end there is an appeal to magic which may not have been that far out for its time, but we had not been prepared for it. It came off as a cheating method to force the story in a certain direction.

"Es war einmal einer namens Harry, genannt der Steppenwolf. Er ging auf zwei Beinen, trug Kleider und war ein Mensch, aber eigentlich war er doch eben ein Steppenwolf..." Harry Haller verzweifelt an sich selbst. Wie kann er sich einerseits nach Kunst und Schönheit sehnen und andererseits so dunkle, animalische Triebe besitzen? Dem Selbstmord nah, lernt er Hermine, eine Kurtisane, kennen. Durch ihre Hilfe gelangt er zur Einsicht, dass der Mensch viel mehr ist, als Harry erwartete. Sylvester Groth legt alles in seine Stimme, was Harry Haller ausmacht: Klarheit, Sehnsucht, Verzweiflung, Hoffnung und Heiterkeit.

The young man is destined for great things. He discovers on the eve of his wedding that his fiancée Countess Mary Korotkova has had an affair with his beloved Tsar Nicholas I. The blow to his pride is massive, and he retreats to the arms of Russian Orthodoxy and becomes a monk. Many years of humility and doubt follow. He is ordered to become a hermit. Despite his being removed from the world, he is still remembered for having so remarkably transformed his life. One winter night, a group of merry makers decide to visit him, and one of them, a divorced woman named Makovkina, spends the night in his cell, with the intention to seduce him. Father Sergius discovers he is still weak and in order to protect himself, cuts off his own finger. Makovkina is stunned by this act, and leaves the next morning, having vowed to change her life. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Timeless classic A wonderful thought-provoking story. Tolstoy delves deeply into the mind of a near-perfect person who wants to be better, holier. When Father Sergius cannot figure out how to serve God if he's busy serving people he comes to a life's crossroad. Very timely in 2015 as we examine our ethical position and our collective courage in matters of conscience. A delightful discussion tool Beautiful I am by no means a critic of literature, but this short story perfectly encapsulates the common struggles that all who seek salvation will inevitably face with, of course, the simple and sweet rewards that we will receive on our journeys. classic Thought this was a classic from the first time i read it. This was the first book i read from the author Leo Tolstoy and must admit that I am in awe of his genius and brilliance. Five Stars Tolstoy has a gift to take you right into the heart of his characters. Great story by Tolstoy This book is really helpful. It changed my life.

Operette morali Audiolibro di Giacomo Leopardi

Ascolta questo libro audio completo gratuitamente su http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titolo: Operette morali Autore: Giacomo Leopardi Narratore: Silvia Cecchini, Enrica Maschio Formato: Unabridged Durata: 7 hrs and 26 mins Lingua: Italiano Data di pubblicazione: 08-21-13 Editore: Collina d'oro Categoria: Classics, World Literature Riepilogo Editore: Le Operette morali sono una raccolta di ventiquattro componimenti in prosa, divise tra dialoghi e novelle dallo stile medio e ironico, scritte tra il 1824 ed il 1832. Riflessione filosofica ed empito poetico fanno sì che Leopardi, al pari di Schopenhauer e più tardi di Kafka, possa essere visto come un esistenzialista o almeno un precursore dell'EsistenzialismoI temi sono quelli cari al poeta: il rapporto dell'uomo con la storia, con i suoi simili e in particolare con la Natura, di cui Leopardi matura una personale visione filosofica; il confronto tra i valori del passato e la situazione statica e degenerata del presente; la potenza delle illusioni, la gloria e la noia.Sono tematiche riproposte alla luce del cambiamento radicale avvenuto nel cuore dello scrittore:[3] la ragione non è più un ostacolo all'infelicità, ma l'unico strumento umano per sfuggire alla disperazione.Ecco le parole di Tristano, scritte da Leopardi cinque anni prima della sua morte, in cui questi risponde a chi gli chiede di cosa fare del suo libro: "Bruciarlo è il meglio. Non lo volendo bruciare, serbarlo come un libro di sogni poetici, d'invenzioni e di capricci malinconici, ovvero come un'espressione dell'infelicità dell'autore: perché in confidenza, mio caro amico, io credo felice voi e felici tutti gli altri; ma io quanto a me, con licenza vostra e del secolo, sono infelicissimo; e tale mi credo; e tutti i giornali de' due mondi non mi persuaderanno il contrario....... Troppo sono maturo alla morte, troppo mi pare assurdo e incredibile di dovere, così morto come sono spiritualmente, così conchiusa in me da ogni parte la favola della vita, durare ancora quaranta o cinquant'anni, quanti mi sono minacciati dalla natura. "Cornice musicale: Grand Polonaise di Chopin Please note: This audiobook is in Italian. Recensioni dei membri: Enchanting Fables of Disenchantment "Leopardi is one of the greatest of poets and prose writers, and like Kleist and Baudelaire, a truly original, devastating sensibility. Nothing is more overdue than a proper edition of Leopardi in English." -- Susan Sontag Fiabe che incantano. Melodie filosofiche di una strana saggezza che tradisce i metodi antichi in un dialogo strumentalizzato dal'epicentro del cuore stordito da illusioni intelletuali. Poesia in prosa. The translation here is adequate, and just as sharp as the earlier rendition by Betram Dobell but not as stellar as the Columbia University Press scarce edition entitled "The Moral Dialogues" where Patrick Creagh's modern version is still the best one available. The above quotation of Sontag is referring to the Creagh translation. However it bears mentioning that this is the only version I have ever encountered that has the original Italian alongside the English. Giovanni Cecchetti is a fine man of letters and interprets the tone of the tales and dialogues well. His introduction and notes are very helpful and fill some gaps a lay reader will likely have. All in all, by the by the best choice out there. A book that's worth more than what is costs. Operette Moralli is quite humorous some times. A more accurate translation of the title would be "small ethical works," but the current title is more truthful to the actual content.

Aunque muchos de los postulados del freudismo han sido cuestionados por sus seguidores posteriores sus principios generales y el corpus principal de la teoría psicoanalítica siguen siendo observadores tanto en la teorización, como en la investigación y en buena parte de la terapéutica clínica.

The novel follows the lives of Rose and her widowed Aunt, Madame Francesca Bernard, along with young visitor and cousin Isabel, whose lives are changed by the return of an old friend and neighbor, Colonel Kent, and his grown son, Allison. Other characters that help shape their lives in significant ways are the Crosby twins, unconventional and uninhibited youths that set society at naught, and an unconventional doctor who specializes in the impossible. Because of the limited "wide scope" descriptions, the reader is not sure of the historical setting or even in which decade it's set, but it helps to understand the focus of the story; after all it's about their own little world, and how their own hearts and lives fit together in the tight confines of their town, their garden, their friendships and lives. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Poorly read and almost impossible to follow.

Convinced that his life is about to be wasted and hoping to impress his love, he decides to embark upon a perilous, daredevil project an illegal attempt to reenter the Soviet Union, from which he and his mother had fled in 1919. He succeeds but at a terrible cost. Critic Reviews: Nabokov writes prose the only way it should be written, that is, ecstatically. (John Updike) Members Reviews: White émigré version of This Side of Paradise Nabokov is an intimidating writer. It is hard to imagine someone who can write so beyond most 'literary' writers in his 3rd language. While Glory was originally written in Russian, and translated by Nabokov's son Dmitri, it still is a prose masterpiece. For me it was a White émigré version of This Side of Paradise. I loved it. Luke Daniels reading is clean, understated and carries a precision of timing and tempo that Nabokov's prose demands. Obverse brilliance... Glory, although excellently written, lacks the overt brilliance of other Nabokov classics. The story is the non-story of a young man???s journey seeking fulfillment. There is a real sense that Glory embodies Nabokov???s obverse brilliance ??? which is quite tantalizing yet less satisfying (to me anyway) then most of Nabokov???s other novels. I would not recommend this as a first Nabokov novel, indeed perhaps it should be the last ??? as observing the author through this work was most of the fun. I quit half way through. It isn't fair for me to say how much I did not like this book. It just was not MY kind of book. At 3 hours of listening I realized I was still waiting for something to happen.

Dead Souls Audiobook by Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol

Ratings: 3.5 of 5 out of 95 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: Chichikov, a mysterious stranger, arrives in a provincial town with a bizarre but seductive proposition for local landowners. He proposes to buy the names of their serfs who have died but who are still registered on the census, saving their owners from paying tax on them. But what collateral will Chichikov receive for these "souls"? Full of larger-than-life Dickensian characters - rogues and scoundrels, landowners and serfs, conniving petty officials, and the wily antihero Chichikov - Dead Souls is a devastating comic satire on social hypocrisy. Translation by D. J. Hogarth. Critic Reviews: "One of the world's finest satires...." ( Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature) Members Reviews: The Russian Dickens "Dead Souls" is a wonderful book. It has all the wit and linguistic dexterity of Dickens, and still is utterly and completely Russian. The elusive "Russian spirit" is on every page. Truly a masterpiece, presented here in a very good translation. The reader does an excellent job, too; his voices do slip here and there, but never for more than a second or two. There is, however, one thing to note about this audiobook: Gogol intended this to be a three-volume work. In his lifetime, he only published the first volume. He apparently wrote some of the second part, but then burned it. Now, it seems that some fragments of this second part have survived, and these are included in the audiobook. Listening to that half of the audiobook isn't really enjoyable: every time you start to follow the plot, the narrator says "at this point there is a long hiatus in the original" and jumps off to a much later part of the story, complete with new and unfamiliar characters and full of references to events you have no knowledge of. I think the audiobook would have been better without this rather pointless second part, and would recommend stopping after the first. Bait & Switch Firstly, this is a serviceable translation of Gogol's masterwork, and narrator Tom Weiner does a better than average job of bringing the novel to life (though somehow his imperious tone doesn't quite suit the text). But this is NOT an Unabridged reading of Dead Souls. The edited text is missing somewhere between 8-10% of Gogol's prose, mostly big chunks of descriptive exposition and digressive ruminations on the writer's life as it relates to Russian society. These excisions allow the plot to lurch forward more briskly, but Gogol has much more to offer than plot. I am deeply annoyed at the Audible editors who didn't take the time to realize this. Given all the unemployed Ph.Ds out there, the company should consider hiring experts in specific fields of literature as editors to ensure this type of false advertisement doesn't happen again. P.S. When I initially download the book two weeks ago, the thumbnail they used was of the Vintage Classics edition, translated by the great Pevear and Volokhonsky. This has since been revised, but further adds to the unreliability of the Audible marketers when it comes to disclosing to the customer exactly what they're getting.

Edited and distributed by Arthur Bell Nicholls, two years after Brontë's death, it is based on her experiences of living as a language student in Brussels. The only male narrator and protagonist in her stories, The Professor follows the career and love affairs of William Crimsworth, a reserved but compassionate aristocrat who has been ostracised by his family and left penniless. Well educated and eager to enthuse others, William becomes a teacher and leaves his scornful family behind to work at a boy's boarding school in Brussels. Unimpeded by his gender, unlike the female characters in her stories, Charlotte takes advantage of William's freedom to travel and delight in the pleasures of the opposite sex. Her hero becomes enamoured with the headmistress of a neighbouring girl's school and this tempestuous relationship is mirrored with the sweet and gentle bond he forges with pupil, Frances Henri. Described by Brontë herself as possessing more 'pith, more substance' and 'more reality' than Jane Eyre, this audiobook provides greater insight into the short life of the beloved author and reaffirms that her reputation as one of the greats of English Literature, is well deserved. Narrator Biography James Wilby trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and later became an associate member of the institution. He is an English actor, celebrated for appearing in films such as Maurice, Gosford Park, Howard's End and A Room with a View. James' breakthrough performance was in the production of Privileged, in which he starred alongside Hugh Grant. This led to his being cast in the critically acclaimed Maurice, for which he won the Venice Film Festival's Best Actor award. His stage performances include Helping Harry, Don Juan, Less Than Kind, On Emotion and The Consultant. He starred in the Royal Shakespeare Company's revival of John Osborne's A Patriot for Me, which was met with very favourable reviews. James has also worked on the making of various audiobooks and is widely considered to be one of the greatest voices of the British drama. His audio work includes Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind, Graham Greene's It's a Battlefield, Ian McEwan's Saturday and The Girl at the Lion D'Or by Sebastian Faulks. Members Reviews: Beautiful This beautiful story and impeccable narration makes you feel as if you were a participant in a beautiful concert. Everything comes together in such a beautiful way- you won't experience such poetic writing or plot anywhere else. It's a loss for anyone who doesn't experience this joy . A Charming Romance... this posthumously published novel is every bit as good as the best of 1800s romance. Bronte at her best! The perfect narrator for Charlotte's great book The professor is so underrated!! I adored it. The narrator was perfect and I found myself absolutely entranced. Must listen!!! You won't be disappointed Least favorite bronte story Plot felt meandering. Actor tried but couldn't make it work. The bronte sisters have done so much better Life well-lived is affirmed ! Very good story & narration. To think that Ms Bronte could not find a publisher until she had another book succeed is surprising.

Smith Format: Unabridged Length: 9 hrs and 12 mins Language: English Release date: 02-09-17 Publisher: SAGA Egmont Ratings: 4.5 of 5 out of 2 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "Tarzan of the Apes" is a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first in a series of books about the title character Tarzan. It was first published in the pulp magazine All Story Magazine in October, 1912; the first book edition was published in 1914. The character was so popular that Burroughs continued the series into the 1940s with two dozen sequels. The novel tells the story of John Clayton, born in the Western coastal jungles of equatorial Africa to a marooned couple from England, John and Alice (Rutherford) Clayton, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted as an infant by the she ape Kala after his parents died (his father is killed by the savage king ape Kerchak), Clayton is named "Tarzan" ("White Skin" in the ape language) and raised in ignorance of his human heritage. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: The Great Ape! While a very old book it certainly grabbed my attention. I could not put it down. Great contrast with the Johnny Weissmueller movies of my childhood. Read the comics versions and saw the movies but they came no where close to this book. Good character development. Good sub stories. A sad ending. Try it you'll like it. Tarzan of the Apes This was an enjoyable book, even though it was written many years ago. Burroughs was able to make an incredible story believable. Some instances of black stereotyping were obvious, especially in the character of Esmeralda. I think in the movies, Jane ends up with Tarzan, although not in the book. Jungle Adventure! Great adventure book! One of my favorites!! Would recommend this to any high school age new reader or regular reader looking for a change in their normal books. Fell in love with the characters- Edgar Rice Burroughs is a brilliant author! Not the Disney version One of my classics, something that made me love to read. I downloaded it onto my Kindle to read again. I was happy to see that it was free but the kindle version won't give me the great cover artwork. I think Boris Vallejo's covers are the best and show the ruthless, loyal, powerful Tarzan as he was meant to be. I never heard that it was a ripoff of Kipling...I hope not...I think it stands by itself. This isn't a Disney Tarzan dancing in the jungle with the animals to some show tune for 12 year olds...like another reviewer was looking for. What??? 3 Generations know the Disney version? I must be old... give me the Tarzan that carries the knife of his long dead father and tears the flesh of Bara the deer with his strong white teeth while it is still warm... Good book awful print Good book awful print. The font was really tiny and there were no page numbers.... There is also no print on the back or side of the book it's just plain white.

In der Familie Taras, der einen Sohn tötet, um sein Volk zu retten und die Hinrichtung des anderen nicht verhindern kann, vollzieht sich jener Zyklus, der seit Menschengedenken das Leben bestimmt: Geburt und Liebe, Tod und Trauer. ©2014 Audio Media Digital (P)2014 Audio Media Digital Mitglieder Bewertungen: Tara's Bulba - Gogol The story lives up to its lore: it is Homeric. It's worth your time to read it. You'll know a little more of the Ukraine, of the steppes, and of the Cossacks. You'll know a little more about Russian literature. If you're like me, you'll have poured thimblefuls into an abyss of ignorance. And have had fun pouring. Great book! Comparable and compared by great authors and ... Great book! Comparable and compared by great authors and poets to be very near to and even an equivalent of the great epics of Homer, The Iliad and Odyssey. That is how good the book is! Great for understanding cossack life in Ukraine, but do your research so you can understand the actual history as it can be confusing when almost everything is called russian instead of ukrainian! To be read with a swift gallop The characters in Russian literature have never been known for being truth-seekers, but they are never passive and are always self-aware. They seem to always want to prove a point, and if they wrestle with circumstances it is only because they enjoy the challenges that such circumstances offer. Gogol's Taras Bulba is no exception to this generalization, and if he were judged by modern terminology he might be classified as a terrorist. But as John Cournos, who wrote the introduction to this collection of stories reminds the reader, it was geography, it was the absence of mountain ranges to guard the steppe that made its inhabitants war-like. Debates on morality were to be trumped by personal and collective survival. So yes the Cossacks, as represented by Taras Bulba were Dionysians, as proven by their revelries, womanizing, and their predilection for the drunken stupor. Nietzsche would have loved them, in spite of the traces of Greek Orthodoxy that polluted their minds. One can't help but admire them, and reading Taras Bulba is in itself an act of rebellion: a way of relishing the Cossack freedom. And the gray Polish cities full of petty, ineffectual, cowardly bureaucrats reminds one of the governments, corporate leaders and managers of today. The social and political hierarchies in both times are exceedingly fragile however, and it does not really take a Cossack sword to cut them down. One does not need to "live dangerously" to do so: being "true to life" will. Gogol writes that Taras Bulba was headstrong, which he says could only happen in the "fierce" fifteenth century. This may be the case, but certainly his story has relevance for today's reader, namely that one should not submit to authority and regimentation. As Andrii did, one needs to take off the gabardines of the Royal Seminary of Kiev, and not deprive oneself of the experiences of rowing swiftly and stoutly through life. Gogol I like Gogol's style.

The novel is an uneasy combination of social comedy and melodrama concerning the adventures and misadventures of Christopher Newman, an essentially good-hearted but rather gauche American businessman on his first tour of Europe. Newman is looking for a world different from the simple, harsh realities of 19th century American business. He encounters both the beauty and the ugliness of Europe, and learns not to take either for granted. The core of the novel concerns Newman's courtship of a young widow from an aristocratic Parisian family. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Perfect I enjoyed this reading immensely .The calmness of the voice, the fine language.

Edward Malone, a reporter for the Daily Gazette, asks his news editor, McArdle, for a dangerous and adventurous mission in order to impress the woman he loves, Gladys Hungerton. He is sent to interview the cantankerous Professor Challenger, who has become notorious for claims made about his recent expedition to South America. The professor has been plagued by intrusive reporters, and, being a formidable man of great strength, has taken to forcibly ejecting them, despite the resulting police prosecutions. To gain entry Malone pretends to be an honest enquirer, but is quickly discovered, assaulted and thrown into the street. Although this is witnessed by a policeman, Malone does not press charges as the original deceit was his. Challenger is suitably impressed, and decides to reveal something of his discovery of living dinosaurs in South America. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Ok, but... I liked the premise of the story, but it was not as well done as it could've been. I mean, two kids sneak off to go on a scientific expedition and end up on an island with dinosaurs? Parents are clueless? Really?? And too much philosophizing by Ian Malcolm. Harding was the star! The lost world - review Very good read. Fast moving story, but nothing is lost with the fast pace. All characters fit the time period and the story. Arthur Conan Doyle's Imagination in the Lost World With an outdated and somewhat pedantic style the reader has to persevere to get to what is actually a good, imaginative and thoughtful storyline. The author has a few pokes at Edwardian morality and pomposity, in a somewhat tongue in cheek fashion. Despite the popular misconception of a dinosaur theme, it is human interactions, race and struggle that form the subtext. My Review The Lost World was both my first foray into reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and my first experience reading a full-length e-book. First of all, my impressions of the electronic format for reading have been significantly improved by this experience. Although I still would prefer to read with a book in hand, I can appreciate the portability and convenience of this medium. I do not own an actual e-reader, so when I one day do own one, I may have to increase my current liking of the electronic format, but suffice it to say for the time being that I did not hate this format and using the Kindle for PC format provided by Amazon.com I enjoyed the fact that I could access my "book" at the place that I had left off from any of my computers whether at home, work or traveling. My opinions of the novel itself could not be more glowing. For such a short novel, I am amazed that I found such richness in the characters, storyline, prose, action and content as I was exposed to in The Lost World. Doyle has done an amazing job of creating unique, interesting and fully fleshed out characters. The story contains plenty of excitement and adventure and most of his scientific reasoning is plausible especially considering the time in which the novel was written. I had always had it in mind that I needed to read the Sherlock Holmes stories of Doyle but just hadn't gotten around to it yet. Now I know that I must read more of his works, not only the Holmes stories but now the Challenger series as well.

The story opens in 1775, when Doctor Manette is reunited with his daughter Lucie after having been locked away in the Bastille for 18 years. Lucie nurtures her half-mad father back to health, but their troubles are far from over, as their lives become entangled with the emigrant son of the Marquis St. Evrémonde, the wayward ne'er-do-well Sydney Carton, and the vengeful Madame and Monsieur Defarge. Set against the terror and turmoil of the French Revolution, "A Tale of Two Cities" is one of Charles Dickens' most loved works - a historical adventure of high drama and surprising depth. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Didn't keep my attention I don't know if it was the reader or the story but I couldn't concentrate on this book.

Landskapets skiftningar speglar invnarnas känslotillstnd och formar deras drömmar, inte minst den drottninglika och splittrade Eustacia Vyes som längtar efter storstadens äventyr. Under det att hon har en affär med kvinnotjusaren och pubägaren Damon Wildeve träffar hon Clym Yeobright, nyss hemkommen frn sin tid som affärsman i Paris, som vill starta en skola för de fattiga och okunniga i sin gamla hemtrakt. Men heden visar sig bära p en seglivad hednisk motstndskraft där människans goda föresatser snabbt tar en annan riktning. Istället kantar hopplös kärlek, uppflammande passion, missförstnd och ensamhet deras väg i denna tragedi, som ocks bär idyllens skönhet. Denna oförglömliga kärlekshistoria av shakespearianska mtt har filmatiserats flera gnger. I originalöversättning av August Brunius Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) var en engelsk poet och romanförfattare. I hans romaner ser man spr av bde romantik och realism, vilket kanske bäst visar sig i hans romaner där människornas passioner tillsammans med omgivningen kring Wessex styr deras öden. Under sin tid blev han kanske mest hyllad som poet, vilket understryks av att hans aska ligger i legendariska Poet's corner i Westminster Abbey. Hans skildringar frn Wessex har dock ftt en ny renässans i vr tid, och symboliskt nog ligger hans hjärta begravt i Stinsford parish church, p landsbygden i Dorset, i den trakt som s starkt präglade hans romaner. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

E cnsiderato la sua opera migliore, fu finito nel 1844, e fu pubblicato nei due anni successivi come romanzo dappendice, in una serie di 18 parti. Questa è la storia, per dirla con le parole del protagonista, di un uomo che aveva riposte tutte le proprie speranze, tutta la propria felicità sopra una donna: era giovane, aveva un vecchio padre che amava, una fidanzata che adorava; era sul punto di sposarla; per uno di quei capricci della sorte, che farebbe quasi dimenticare la bontà di Dio, se Dio poi non si rivelasse più tardi, mostrando che tutto è per lui un mezzo di condurre alla sua misericordia infinita, ad un tratto gli fu tolta la libertà, la fidanzata, lavvenire che sognava e che credeva suo, per seppellirlo nel fondo di un carcere. Ebbene! Nel momento supremo, Dio si rivelò a lui con un mezzo umano; forse al primo istante non comprese questa misericordia infinita del Signore, poiché ci vuol tempo agli occhi velati di lacrime per schiudersi del tutto; ma infine prese pazienza e aspettò.E dunque una storia di pazienza e di attesa, e la vendetta del prigioniero, prima inseguita e poi maledetta , non fu che una fiamma accesa da Dio per illuminare la strada delluomo Edmondo Dantès, e unesca letteraria lanciata dallautore Dumas per tenere avvinti i lettori, storia dopo storia, da Parigi, a Roma, a Giannina dEpiro, fino alla misteriosa isola di Montecristo. Please note: This audiobook is in Italian. Recensioni dei membri: Best Novel EVER!!! Such a looooong time since I last read such a delightful novel. Same level as "I promessi Sposi" but, being Italian, The count of Monte Cristo has that little touch of exotic which fascinates me even more. The reading is perfect, even for the non native speakers (good level required, though, since it is a dated translation and it reads an old fashioned high class Italian).

Lui è in contrasto permanente con la società, e dal suo sottosuolo la osserva, la critica, anche se a volte desidera farne parte. Il più delle volte però si autocensura e si rifugia nel suo mondo sotterraneo popolato di fantasie sfrenate e deliranti che si alternano a stati di risentimento estremo, avallato dalla consapevolezza che la sofferenza è insita nell'essere umano pensante, e che per lui non c'è scampo. Questo anti-eroe, però, qualche piccola soddisfazione se la prende, tormentando meschinamente e senza nessuna soddisfazione, chi occupa una posizione sociale ancora più bassa della sua, ed è questo il solo modo di rapportarsi con gli altri che la sua natura gli consente. Scritto nel 1864, in un periodo buio della vita dell'autore, questo romanzo stupendo e incredibilmente vivace, nonostante racconti di nevrosi e follia, è frutto del vissuto di quegli anni difficili, che ispirano Dostoevskij nel ritrarre l'indimenticabile protagonista di questo imperdibile capolavoro. Fëdor Michajlovi Dostoevskij proveniva da una famiglia aristocratica decaduta, e rimase orfano di madre all'età di 16 anni. Il padre lo iscrisse allora alla scuola del genio militare di Pietroburgo, anche se le sue attitudini erano letterarie, cosi dopo il diploma, rinunciò alla carriera militare e iniziò a scrivere. Le critiche furono subito positive, e la sua professione iniziava a dargli soddisfazione, ma nel 1849, fu condannato, a causa delle sue frequentazioni socialiste a quattro anni di lavori forzati in Siberia. Furono quelli anni durissimi, tormentati tra l'altro dall'epilessia, che tuttavia lo ispirarono nella stesura di nuovi romanzi. Lo scrittore era ormai famoso quando, improvvisamente, fu colto dalla morte il 9 febbraio 1881. ©2014 Public domain (P)2014 GOODmood Contattami per qualsiasi domanda: inforeq17@gmail.com

The Call of the Wild Audiobook by Jack London

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Call of the Wild Author: Jack London Narrator: Edward Miller Format: Unabridged Length: 3 hrs and 48 mins Language: English Release date: 01-06-17 Publisher: Audioliterature Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "The Call of the Wild" is a short adventure novel by Jack London published in 1903 and set in Yukon, Canada during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck. The story opens at a ranch in Santa Clara Valley, California, when Buck is stolen from his home and sold into service as a sled dog in Alaska. He becomes progressively feral in the harsh environment, where he is forced to fight to survive and dominates other dogs... Might not a growing friendship between Buck and the experienced outdoorsman John Thornton change everything? An absolute classic and not to be missed! ©2016 Audioliterature (P)2016 Audioliterature Members Reviews: The nature of the beast The internet meme about how dogs were wild and fierce, then they saw we had couches? TL;DR: This book is the reverse of that. Buck is a pampered, favored house pet given the run of the property at all times. He's well cared for and rules his domain. A gambling gardener steals him to pay off a debt, and Buck's easy life is shattered. He's broken by harsh men, beat into submission to be rebuilt as a strong, tireless sled pulling machine. He runs on a small ration of fish per day, learns the ways of the sled dog, and slowly takes over as leader of the pack. (Vroom vroom!). When he's too tired to continue, he's taken in by another caring man who fights for him and saves him. In the end, he answers the call of the wild and dominates his new domain. Amazing! Of you're a dog lover, you'll love this book about survival of the fittest; the power of a dog's determination and love for a kind loving owner . Nick must survive and overcome many obstacles and misgivings and cruelty before he can recognize that life is more than the daily toil. I really enjoyed Jack London's style and ability to tell a powerful story and convey a powerful meaning. Once you read this book, written through the eyes of the hero, Buck, you have to wonder what "man's best friend" really thinks about humans. Great read! Great symbolism! This book contains two stories: The call of the Wild and To Build a Fire. The call of the Wild was a difficult read for me. At one point the animal cruelty was so much I put the book down and vowed never to pick it up. But I did pick it back up and Iâm so glad I did. Londonâs use of symbolism and the way he captures human nature is brilliant. I loved the philosophy in To Build a Fire, and I found many of the same themes echoed in both stories. Riveting Catching up on books I should have read in my youth. It is about a dog named Buck and how he went from a life of comfort and was sold into servitude. He made the best of it and through his adventures grew emotionally and smarter. As with other books, sometimes the author shortened the story instead of completing it. Maybe he got tired of the subplot or ran out of ideas. The last story was not shortened. The viewpoint was from storyteller and not the dog. This isn't like "Old Yeller", " My Dog Skip", or "Marley and Me". Engaging adventure story with a natural morality The adventures and personality of Buck are thrilling as he makes his transformation from a docile domestic companion to the fiercest predator in the Yukon. The law of the land is the law of survival: kill or be killed.

Opiniones de los miembros: Stories from Argentina Horacio Quiroga is a master story teller whose characters are minutely described and whose plots have a very appealing suspense. The stories take place in the Argentine country side where people live in close contact with nature. But nature in these stories is not a passive landscape. On the contrary, it can be sometimes diabolic. Recommended reading. Cuentos densos en la línea de Poe y Dostoiévski El libro "Cuentos de Amor de Locura y de Muerte" (1917 - sin puntuación en el original)es una colección de cuentos de Horacio Quiroga que incluye algunos de los mas famosos, como "La Gallina Degollada". Quiroga fué uno de los grandes autores latinoamericanos, del nivel de Borges, Lugones, Onetti y Bioy Casares y especialmente de cuentistas formados entre Buenos Aires y Montevideo. Estos autores supieron crear una literatura muy particular, estableciendo un estilo y un abordaje peculiares y diferentes de una narrativa latino-americana mas festejada y exótica. Nacido en el Uruguay en 1878, vivió varios años en Misiones, provincia situada en la Mesopotamia Argentina, entre los grandes rios Uruguay y Paraná, región selvática que influenció los temas de varios de sus cuentos. Horacio Quiroga tuvo una existencia marcada por tragedias; la muerte violenta de su padre, suicidios en su familia, incluyendo su esposa, tres de sus hijos, y culminando con su propio suicidio en 1937. Recomiendo este libro. An author with personality and history In Argentina, this autor is even studied at school. Why? Cause he is a representative of a fictious genera, when it was nearly not known . In his stories, we can see his vivid imagination, flowing through each of the retellings. A great book, even for spanish students as foreign language. Cuentos de amor de lucirá y de muerte En realidad no suelo leer libros de novelas que abarquen pequeños fragmentos como es el caso de esta obra de Quiroga. En todo caso hay dentro de ellas una serie de enseñanzas que permiten vislumbrar los perjuicios y enredos de una sociedad a desigual.

It was first published in the August 19, 1843, edition of The Saturday Evening Post. It is a study of the psychology of guilt, often paired in analysis with Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". In both, a murderer carefully conceals his crime and believes himself unassailable, but eventually breaks down and reveals himself, impelled by a nagging reminder of his guilt. ©2017 Michael Troy Audiobooks (P)2017 Michael Troy Audiobooks Members Reviews: Makes me think of Romans 7:21 Short engaging horror story. Can be read in one sitting, in about a half-an-hour. Favorite quotes include: "But my disease grew upon me - for what disease is like Alcohol!" (7) "But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburthen my soul." (2) "The guilt of my dark deed disturbed me but little. ... I determined to wall it up ... I soundly and tranquilly slept; aye, slept even with the burden of murder upon my soul!" (27, 24) "Have we not a perpetual inclination, in the teeth of our best judgment, to violate that which is Law, merely because we understand it to be such? This spirit of perverseness ... Who has not, a hundred times, found himself committing a vile or silly action, for no other reason than because he knows he should not?" (10) This last passage, and indeed the theme of the story, makes me think of some famous Scriptures: "I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. ... What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!" -Romans 7:21,24,25 (New International Version) Despite being a tortured soul, as another reviewer points out, Poe is said to have found comfort towards the end of his life by a more forceful embrace of Catholicism. The Combination Of The Most Perverse Conduct Described By Great Writing Edgar Allen Poe is a great talent. According to my studies, he may have been a tortured sole. This personal anguish, combined with great talent as a writer produced some of the greatest and most shocking writing of Mr. Poe's time. There may be no better example of this than this short story. I am not sure I would have had the courage to put this story into words if I had been the author. As a student, not a scholar, of literature, I had always tried to figure out why I like Edgar Allen Poe so much. His style had always seemed unique to me. Then I read "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley". This work precedes that of Poe and really reminds me of Poe so much, that I cannot help but wonder if Edgar Allan Poe may have been inspired in part by Mary Shelley. No one has ever suggested that to me and I have never read that. It is just a feeling that I have. As far as this audiobook is concerned, the narration is faithful to the short story. The narrator is female. She is excellent. I also have a narration that is done by a male, Bob Thomley. I did find that narration more chilling. Thank You... What can I say, I love this story Anyone who reads knows the superb works of this author, Edgar Allen Poe. In this story, The Black Cat a guilt-ridden man is driven to a level of madness by the terrible acts he commits. The man and his wife have a cat named Pluto. The man and the cat have a loving friendship lasts for several years.

He marched with the Spartans and later was exiled from Athens. He wrote about the history of his times, the sayings of Socrates, and about life in Greece. Edward Bysshe translated Xenophone's work in 1702. This translation has continued to have an excellent reputation. In this work, Xenophon discusses the views of life taught by Socrates. His writing is clean and direct. Xenophon does not idealize Socrates, but he feels strongly, and he shows clearly the worth of the wisdom that touches at every point the actual conduct of the lives of men. Editorial Reviews: Narrator Nicholas Tecosky will make listeners feel as though they are at a lecture given by an obliging and earnest professor. His easygoing performance allows listeners to appreciate Socrates' words of wisdom as written by his student Xenophon. Addressing the youth of his time, Socrates instructs them on the philosophy of virtue and its value and application in daily life. Socrates touches on religion and piety, household management (which he likens to political government), and ways to avoid corruption and excess. Listeners who are looking for an accessible introduction to Socratic philosophy will find this audiobook perfect for their needs. Members Reviews: Philosopher, Soldier, Historian and Mercenary I love Xenophon. He is a rare breed: philosopher, soldier, historian and mercenary. I imagine him as a 4th century BC combination of Teddy Roosevelt and William T. Vollmann. Memorabilia is a nice piece to read along with Plato's dialogues. While Plato's remembrances of Socrates are more philosophic and cerebral, Xenophon presents a slightly different and more down to earth picture of the great ethical philosopher. wonderful narrative appreciated how the author pulled the reader into the life of socrates and his teachings most excellent thoughts indeed! a lot of great words from a great man. i will be listening to this audiobook again. Memorable What did you love best about The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates? Great story! Well told. Who was your favorite character and why? Socrates deserves to be immortalized in audio books like this. Which scene was your favorite? I liked the conversation with Meno best Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

She finds Rosalie shabby and dispirited, cowed by her husband's ill-treatment. Bettina sets about to rectify matters. She meets Lord Mount Dunstan, an impoverished earl, who lives nearby and they fall in love, but he cannot speak because it would look as if he were after her money. ©2017 SAGA Egmont (P)2017 SAGA Egmont Members Reviews: Amazing Great writing. Enjoyable to enter and journey along with plot. Brilliant understanding of complex mental illness and evil. Love all her stories! More than Lovely The narrator, who I have heard before, is very good if a bit fast..this is not a bad thing for a book written just at the turn of the last century as it keeps the book from becoming dull. As usual in Burnetts Adult books, this is not a great huge book, it is instead an intimate one. A bad marriage between a cruel man and a woman who is not strong is well shown, and her sister is a wonderful new age woman who comes from America and implements changes to save her sister and the entailed estate to which her son is heir. Just desserts are served in satisfactory portions and in the end there is happiness although Burnett never lets you forget what damage old-fashioned anti-woman laws can do. A good little reminder of things currently happening today. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Der Junge, der ihm früher geholfen hat, ist längst von seinen Eltern auf ein anderes Boot geschickt worden. Der alte Mann, sagen sie, sei salao, vom Unglück verfolgt. Doch plötzlich beißt ein riesiger Fisch an und zieht Santiago und das Boot weit hinaus aufs offene Meer. Es beginnt ein tage- und nächtelang anhaltender Kampf... ©2012 Rowohlt Verlag GmbH (P)2013 Parlando Edition Christian Brückner Mitglieder Bewertungen: Foreign language title The book itself is fine. Multiple copies were ordered for my senior citizens' German class, and one of the members already had a copy, so we knew what we were ordering. Hemingway's style is simple and clear, as is the translation into German. Just be aware that if you are forced to order through Amazon, you pay the full handling and postage charge per item. That is, for 10 identical and very small paperbacks - a parcel measuring 14 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches - we paid the exorbitant postage and handling charge of 129 USD for the books to be sent to Australia!!! When I brought this massive overcharge up with Amazon, the reply was very much 'take it or leave it'. I wonder if Amazon doesn't have enough competitors? Interestingly, the books actually came from The Book Depository, but when I went to TBD website (twice) to try to order it direct from them, the book didn't show up. I can only wonder about that... Ein Nachmittag bei Boysens Lesung auf der Couch --- und mit dem Alten Mann und dem Meer ... ... mein Gefühl, nachdem ich diese Lesung wieder genossen habe: Wie wenn man sich ans Meer setzt und - wie hypnotisiert - die Brandung am Strand, oder an Klippen beobachtet ... es ist immer und immer wieder dasselbe Bild, aber immer und immer wieder dieselbe Faszination... Will also heißen: Diese Lesung des Hemingway Klassikers finde ich immer wieder hörenswert, gleichwohl die Gefahr besteht, dass die Geschichte einen etwas runterzieht. Dazu trägt Boysens raue Stimme - zusätzlich zu der getragenen Stimmung des Werkes - wesentlich bei. Bemerkenswert immer wieder - die Schönheit und Einfachheit und große Tragik dieser Story. Wenn einen ein Buch - in diesem Fall Hörbuch - über Jahre treu begleitet ist es umso erstaunlicher, was man darin liest, oder was man daraus für sich interpretiert. Eine vermeintlich einfache Geschichte, wie diese. Als Jugendliche habe ich nichts kapiert. Gar nichts. Zig Jahre später ist das total anders. Bin jetzt schon gespannt, wie es irgendwann in fünf Jahren oder so wirkt. Ich liebe Hörbuch-Lesungen, wie diese hier. Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 109 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: In accordance with her father's suspicions, young Townsend disappears, leaving Catherine to humiliation, heartache, and lonely spinsterhood. Years later, after her father's death, Townsend returns, and Catherine must make up her own mind about his intentions. This 1881 novel was adapted into the popular movie The Heiress. Critic Reviews: "Washington Square is a perfectly balanced novel...a work of surpassing refinement and interest." (Elizabeth Hardwick) "It's James at the top of his form." (AudioFile) Members Reviews: Fabulous This book's characters just jump out of the narration, it's absolutely wonderful. James' understanding of a certain female character is uncanny. I adored this book and was so sorry when it ended! A Light Classic If you enjoy well written 19th century classic literature, this is a great choice. It's pretty light, and not quite as intriguing as The Portrait of a Lady, but it still keeps you interested. My only complaint is the narrator's pacing- he reads well, but leaves interminable pauses between most of his sentences. It might be worthwhile to listen to a sample before buying it. Classic! I'm of two minds when it comes to this book. On the one hand, the writing and James' observations are exquisitely on point, and he is able to create such a fleshed out story with so little story-line. On the other, I disliked all the characters. I did sympathize with Catherine, and in a way, even with Morris, but I did not connect to them. I've found this to be the case with other books by Henry James as well as Edith Wharton. They are such masters of language, but for me, they are not as acutely talented in drawing out characters with whom I have an affinity. I never perceived great passion or chemistry between any of the characters, so the "love story" did not strike me as terribly authentic or believable. That being said, I did strangely enjoy it. After reading far too much news in recent months, and quite a number or creepy thrillers, I felt a need for beautiful language, and eloquence in a world where some days it seems there is decidedly too little of either. I wasn't looking for a book to break my heart or fully engage all my emotions. I read this because I trust James to provide something of linguistic beauty, and in that respect, I was quite satisfied. Accessible James Beautifully Read Less internal than some Henry James, memorable (if mostly unlovable) characters, sad ending, great narration. Excellent audio presentation of Henry James' classic Easy to listen to and thoroughly enjoyable the presentation narrated by Lloyd James. Wished that Lloyd James had done some of the other Henry James audio versions. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Quicksand Author: Nella Larsen Narrator: Alice Johnson Format: Unabridged Length: 5 hrs Language: English Release date: 07-13-17 Publisher: Audioliterature Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 5 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: Like most of us in our twenties, Helga Crane, our American heroine and teacher in the rural South; is filled with the desire to be more than she is and to feel the world more intensely. She therefore dismisses her native Chicago, New York's Harlem, Copenhagen even. She also passes on opportunities for extended family, for marriage, and for true love. What is always latent in this truly remarkable work; is how much the background of 1920's American racial segregation defines Helga's malaise, and how much - paradoxically - is of her own doing. The title of this novel is tragically appropriate: Living in a country with so much unresolved tensions, so much injustice and hypocrisy and violence could very well feel like walking in quicksand. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Fascinated This was clearly a difficult story for Larsen to write at the time she wrote it in the late 20's. It was well crafted, and emotionally evocative, as a deep relationship between two opposites (in every way but gender) begins to build and simmer under the surface of antagonism. Very cleverly set up, This book, as does its characters, holds layer after layer of inner conflict and passion. No one is as she seems, and none loses her instinct for self-preservation, even as addiction for the 'other' grows and chokes out the life of 'normalcy'. It seems somehow fitting that Larsen's next book did not find a publisher, and that this story is her last of record. It is a huge story, set in what proved a huge decade, amidst the rennaisance of the arts in Harlem. I sensed throughout that although the author was an adult woman, the story was told by an insecure child who had taken a deep breath, and now was braving everything in order to to "tell'. A posthumous 'brava' to Ms. Larsen. You dug deep and you moved the ground a little with every page. I finished the book with the distinct feeling that writing this book had wrung every drop from its author, That it cost her dearly to speak from her heart, for this story has the aura of the confessional about it Amazing, Must Read. This book has an amazing outlook of a Half White-Half African American Woman trying to fit into 1920's society. Everything is either black or white, but the protagonist feels gray, and there is no set place for her. I would read this book again. Great view of feminism. being a biracial women with white and black just like the women in the story i could relate a ... being a biracial women with white and black just like the women in the story i could relate a lot to what she was saying. my college class had to read this story and it made you want to keep reading. overall great book! MUST READ!! This is one of the most amazing books regarding style and form. Particularly emotive for women, but men have enjoyed it, too. uncomfortably honest, eloquent and enlightening. This tale tells of a young, intelligent young woman who either seems to have a bad stroke of luck or a deeply flawed judgement system. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

It was published in 1920. Set in the early 1920s, this novel continues Edith Wharton's examination of New York society. Nick Lansing and Susy Branch are both barely getting by in the wealthy social circles they move in and they can't afford to get married. They make a deal. They will get married and stay together as long as they can but when they run out of money, they can divorce each other. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Much Too Much of a Good Thing Heavy on idiosyncratic English people, and filled with characters that amount to the usual suspects. The plot/mystery is secondary to the lengthy descriptions of the characters in humorous situations. There were too many times when these situational descriptions needed to be edited, shortened, and brought to the point. I like folksy (cozy?) British mysteries, but this book was too much of a good thing. A story from the past that has meaning today The struggle between a life of value and a life without values - a young couple begin life together without realizing that they will have to choose. They struggle to allow one another the freedom that each believes the other wants - each sacrificing self. This struggle could easily be seen in today's youth. What is important? What gives life meaning? Good fun Complex plots - too complex - and lots of words to look up even though I have a grand vocabulary together wit some skillful comedy: what more can one ask of a mystery? I reserve five stars for great lit, but Crispin's books are grand fun and I highly recommend them. Not his best. I have read and enjoyed the strange mindset of some other of Edmund Crispin's stories, but I became bored with this one about one-third of the way through and stopped.I may finish it later, but I cannot recommend it. Trying Too Hard I have loved Edmund Crispin mysteries, but this is the first I've read that was not masterful. The author tries too hard to be too clever.

Mr. and Mrs. Edward Brookenham host an effete, rather corrupt social circle. Their children are worthless Harold and sweet but knowledgeable Nanda (age 18). Vanderbank, a young civil servant with little money, admires both Mrs. Brookenham (nicknamed "Mrs. Brook") and Nanda. Mrs. Brook seems to want an affair with "Van" but he appears more interested in Nanda. Mr. Longdon promises him a dowry if he marries Nanda. Mrs. Brook is instead trying to get her daughter married to Mitchy, a very rich but rather naive member of her social circle. But Nanda urges Mitchy to marry Aggie, the supposedly sheltered step-niece of one of Mrs. Brook's friends (the Duchess). Mitchy follows the advice, then watches helplessly as Aggie kicks over the traces and starts playing around on him. Van constantly hesitates about proposing to Nanda... Artist Bio Author: Henry James (1843-1916) was an American-born British writer. He is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th century literary realism. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: THE FONT SIZE IS SOOOO TINY on this particular edition ... THE FONT SIZE IS SOOOO TINY on this particular edition that I CAN'T READ IT. (('m not 90 either, I'm under 30) A subtle, intense, enervating and possibly profound dissection of â what? THE AWKWARD AGE is a novel written in whatâs come to be known as Henry Jamesâ Later Style. Which is as much to say that it requires, in reading, concentration and commitment to nuance and structure. The novel is noted for being largely propelled, narratively, by a series of conversations carefully positioned in various rooms and gardens. Whilst this might suggest a reliance wholly on dialogue, the real case is something a little different. James is always careful to describe in exact detail where characters sit or stand in rooms, the feeling-tone of their expressions and postures, the manner in which the utterance of one character might or might not be âtaken upâ by another. Itâs a novel almost as much about what is expressly NOT said as it is about what IS said. Nowhere in any James novel is it more true than what T. S. Eliot said of him: âa mind so fine that no idea could violate itâ. My own personal experience of reading James is that there will always come a point in his novels where I feel as though I want to scream at him to just, please, for once, say what he actually means. Such a reaction is much less true of his earlier novels than of the later ones. Itâs particularly true of THE AWKWARD AGE. One can get a little exasperated with yet another exclamation of âyouâre too wonderful/beautiful/goodâ when, in fact, youâve no idea what a character might be meaning by such an utterance to another character. And what can be said with any certainty with respect to concrete action is very, very limited. The Duchess might be having an affair with Lord Petherton; she might not be (or only desiring it). Nanda is corrupted by her motherâs salon; Nanda isnât corrupted by her motherâs salon. âOld Vanâ finds Nanda enchanting; âOld Vanâ finds Nanda too worldly. Mrs. Brookenham wants to have an affair with Vanderbank; Mrs. Brookenham doesnât actually have an affair with Vanderbank.

Uno, nessuno e centomila Audiolibro di Luigi Pirandello

Ascolta questo libro audio completo gratuitamente su http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titolo: Uno, nessuno e centomila Autore: Luigi Pirandello Narratore: Giancarlo Previati Formato: Unabridged Durata: 5 hrs and 36 mins Lingua: Italiano Data di pubblicazione: 05-15-08 Editore: Il Narratore s.r.l. Valutazioni: 5 su 5 su 4 voti Categoria: Classics, World Literature Riepilogo Editore: L'ultimo romanzo di Pirandello, il romanzo "più amaro di tutti, profondamente umoristico, di scomposizione della vita" come affermò lo stesso autore. La filosofia pirandelliana trova qui il suo totale compimento attraverso il protagonista, il "pazzo" Vitangelo Moscarda, che assorbe in sé e supera tutti i personaggi presenti nelle opere precedenti dello scrittore siciliano. Moscarda, partendo dalla scoperta di avere il naso lievemente storto, si avventura in una serie di ricerche speculative ed esistenziali che lo porteranno prima alla rovina e poi alla successiva rinascita tramite l'autoesclusione dalla vita sociale e dalla visione comune degli uomini. La voce del narratore dà forma e concretezza vivente ad un monologo ricco di interrogazioni ed esclamazioni proprio come fosse un'opera teatrale ma in realtà si rivolge, al di là del palcoscenico, direttamente all'orecchio dell'ascoltatore e alla sua coscienza. (c)+(p) 2008 Il Narratore s.r.l. Recensioni dei membri: Great book, a bit philosophical Interesting and very dense, but a bit difficult. His "Il fu Mattia Pascal" (The late Mattia Pascal") is much easier and funnier for those who are starting reading Pirandello This book is great but the digital edition requires some serious work for indentation/editing I love this work from Pirandello, I bought the digital edition for convenience. However, the digital edition is vy hard to read. It looks like this has been generated automatically, which is ok, however it is clear that it has been published with little consideration for quality. This is why I rate this 4 stars only. Great book. I bought this book in Kindle. It came immediately and I started reading. Great classic book for people who wants to know more about italian culture and who read/learn Italian. Four Stars A good read Five Stars One of the best Italian writer bare-none. Contattami per qualsiasi domanda: inforeq17@gmail.com

Une blessure vive, la perte d'un enfant, symbole de cet amour que le temps n'a su effacer ni entamer. L'être aimé objet d'une admiration infinie mais lucide. Une déclaration fanatique, fiévreuse, pleine de tendresse et de folie. La voix d'une femme qui se meurt doucement, sans s'apitoyer sur elle-même, tout entière tournée vers celui qu'elle admire plus que tout. La voix d'une femme qui s'est donnée tout entière à un homme, qui jamais ne l'a reconnue. Avec Lettre d'une inconnue, Stefan Zweig pousse plus loin encore l'analyse du sentiment amoureux et de ses ravages, en nous offrant un cri déchirant d'une profonde humanité. Ici nulle confusion des sentiments : la passion est absolue, sans concession, si pure qu'elle touche au sublime. Préface écrite et lue par Elsa Zylberstein. "J'ai toujours été fascinée par la force de ce texte, par sa beauté désespérée, par sa profondeur et sa maturité." Elsa Zylberstein L'auteur Né en Autriche en 1881, mort au Brésil en 1942, auteur de romans, de pièces de théâtre et de poèmes, excelle dans l'essai, la biographie et la nouvelle. Comme dans la ou , on retrouve ici son génie de la psychologie, son art de suggérer par un geste, un regard, les tourments intérieurs, les arrières pensées, les abîmes de l'inconscient. La narratrice De formation théâtrale classique, est nominée deux fois au Molière de la révélation théâtrale féminine ; elle poursuit depuis un brillant parcours au théâtre, à la télévision et au cinéma.

It includes a lot of specialized knowledge that only sailors would know. This books is in German. Seems to be scanned. Quite some ocr errors, perhaps 1 per page. That is ok for me. Overall, easy reading. If that is what you want, it may well be worth the money. Book includes historical illustrations. I couldn't see them very well on my small kindle.

Categoria: Classics, World Literature Riepilogo Editore: La lettura di Giancarlo Previati, attore di teatro e di cinema, è intensa e di grande impegno interpretativo. Recensioni dei membri: Il Verismo di Giovanni Verga Verga's skill to weave a realistic view of daily life in a small Sicilian fishing village is remarkable. From the first introduction to the various characters, the reader is immediately drawn into their midst, giving each an identity that transcends time and space. Their world is a universal microcosm of people we have always known. Something Completely Different This is a wonderful novel focused on village life in a mostly pre-literate Sicily of the 1870s. Newly united Italy wants a navy, and disrupts the life of a traditional fishing family by taking its sons. It has a family resemblance with Flaubert's great MADAME BOVARY, except there's a deeper sympathy for the dilemmas of the characters, easily sensed under the tight-lipped, objective, "realistic" narration. With great originality, a good deal of the narration is carried out through the conversations of the villagers, just as if you were there listening to the villagers chatting. One could say that this is the world Joe DiMaggio escaped by becoming a baseball star, except that there's only one character who "wants to get away," and he's not easy to identify with. Instead, the narrative gets you involved in the outlooks and feelings of the others, who can only conceive of living honorable lives and having their own house in this village in the shadow of Mount Etna.

Riddell, Bram Stoker Format: Highlights Length: 10 hrs and 44 mins Language: English Release date: 11-14-07 Publisher: Jimcin Recordings Ratings: 3 of 5 out of 14 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: This third and final collection of Classic Ghost Stories contains these chillers: Members Reviews: Good book This book arrived in good time and was an interesting read Five Stars He is great author Nice Collection 164 Pages For those who, like me, occasionally have trouble with the "Look Inside!" function, here are the stories listed in this volume: An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street - J.S. Le Fanu No. 1 Branch Line: The Signalman - Charles Dickens Mrs. Zant and the Ghost - Wilkie Collins Reality or Delusion? - Mrs. Henry Wood The New Pass - Amelia B. Edwards The Body-Snatcher - Robert Lewis Stevenson What Was It? Fitz-James O'Brien The Real Right Thing - Henry James "Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad" - M.R. James In Kropfsberg Keep - Ralph A. Cram The Lost Ghost - Mary E. Wilkins I'm glad I added this to my collection, as it has a few stories I've never even heard of by familiar writers. I've been a fan of Wilkie Collins since I stumbled upon "The Woman in White" and I still remain a fan. One thing that goes through my mind when reading these short story collections is, "Man, they really don't write like this anymore." On the binding/print: The font was good, and the spacing of the margins was good - sometimes with these volumes the print goes all the way to the binding, making it a little difficult to read without almost destroying the book. I didn't have that problem here. A Good Collection of Ghost Stories by Great Authors Dover's collections of ghost, horror, and mystery stories are among the best deals in the paperback book world. I read this volume around Halloween, and it made what little hair I have left curl and vanish. The quality of the individual stories varies greatly, with the best being "Wandering Willie's Tale" by Sir Walter Scott, "Doctor Heidegger's Experiment" by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and the much-anthologized "The Horla" by Guy de Maupassant. Also included is the classic "The Monkey's Paw" by W. W. Jacobs and "Dracula's Guest" by Bram Stoker. In all, there are eighteen different stories by sixteen authors. My copy of the book was purchased some many years ago and still looks great for a paperback, so you don't have to feel any compunctions buying a used copy in good condition. This book will give you many hours of scary enjoyment. What more can I say? Good for reading, not for camp fires. I purchased this book to be part of my 'campfire story collection' when on Boy Scout campouts. I was looking for something that was 'scary, but not too scary', with longer and more compelling stories than many of the 100-words or less entrants that seem to fill some books (I mean, give us a little bit of a story...) In any case, while some of them can be interesting to read on their own and for insight into what people thought was scary 100+ years ago (hint, almost nothing of it is currently scary to your average 12-13 year-old, and mostly they're just confused because of the vintage vocabulary), it's probably not the book I would reach for to take on the next campout.

Hunger nach Brot, nach Liebe, nach Anerkennung. Knut Hamsun hat in seinem ersten Roman eigene Erfahrungen verarbeitet, als er sich in Oslo mühsam mit dem Schreiben von kleinen Feuilletons über Wasser hielt. Mit dem Erscheinen von Hunger begründete er seinen Weltruhm. Mitglieder Bewertungen: Where does reality end and hallucination begin? Other reviewers have mentioned the stream of consciousness style and the focus on inner psychology rather than conventional plot. One thing I noticed: the narrator lies to most of the people around him. He also lies to himself -- sets up deceptive illusions to make himself raise the energy to do things. I've read the book only once, but I believe that some of the more fantastic scenes with are just hallucinations. Where the narrator's experience stops and the hallucinations begin is a delicate line. I'll have to read the book again and see if I can puzzle it out. Five Stars Received in a timely manner and was exactly what I wanted. I loved his descriptions and attention to detail Talks about his climb through insanity and back. I loved his descriptions and attention to detail. Read three times and gave this book as a present to 4 of my friends already. They all love it and always mention it when we talk about "philosophy" Five Stars One of the sparsely beautiful books I've ever read. Reality or Hallucination Easy read but hard to put down. Stream of consciousness narrative and an early example of post-modernism which shows a fine line between reality and hallucination. I enjoyed it very much and recommend it to those who like life in late 19th century in Northern Europe. Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

L'histoire commence à Hambourg, dans la maison du Pr. Lidenbrock. Le professeur, amateur de vieux livres, a acheté le manuscrit original d'une saga islandaise, Heimskringla, écrite au XIIe siècle, et dans lequel il découvre un parchemin rédigé en caractères runiques.Axel et son oncle parviennent à déchiffrer ce cryptogramme. Il s'agit du message d'un certain Arne Saknussemm, un alchimiste du XVIe siècle. Celui-ci affirme avoir découvert un passage vers le centre de la Terre, en passant par le Sneffels, volcan inactif situé en Islande.Le professeur Lidenbrock décide de partir dès le lendemain pour l'Islande, emmenant avec lui son neveu Axel. A Reykjavík, ils engagent un chasseur d'eider nommé Hans, qui sera leur guide. Les trois hommes voyagent jusqu'au pied du volcan Sneffels, et en font l'ascension. Le cratère éteint renferme trois cheminées. L'une d'elles doit être effleurée par l'ombre d'un haut pic, le Scartaris, à midi, "avant les calendes de juillet", c'est-à-dire dans les derniers jours de juin. D'après la note de Saknussemm, là se trouve le passage vers le centre de la Terre... L'auteur Né à Nantes en 1828, entame des études de droit à Paris. Il y fréquente les milieux littéraires et écrit des pièces de théâtre, des livrets d'opérettes et d'opéras-comiques. Après le succès de (1850), il se consacre entièrement à l'écriture, et étudie assidûment diverses disciplines scientifiques. Ses premiers récits, publiés en 1851, annoncent les thèmes de son œuvre future. En 1857, il épouse Honorine, dont il aura un enfant, Michel. Dès 1863 commence une collaboration fameuse entre l'écrivain et l'éditeur Pierre-Jules Hetzel, avec la publication de . Au cours des 40 années suivantes, Jules Verne écrira plus de 70 romans d'aventure et d'exploration, tous remarquables par leur précision, tant au niveau scientifique que géographique ou historique. Parallèlement, il effectue de nombreux voyages en Amérique et en Europe. Jules Verne s'inspire aussi de l'histoire contemporaine. Installé en 1872 à Amiens, il cesse de voyager en 1886 pour exercer pleinement sa mission de conseiller municipal tout en continuant à écrire. Jules Verne disparaît à l'âge de 77ans. Le narrateur Avec sa voix profonde et chaleureuse, est un comédien aux multiples facettes. On le retrouve aussi bien dans des livres audio que comme voix-off pour des documentaires sur de grandes chaînes télévisées.

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Great Expectations Author: Charles Dickens Narrator: Lawrence Skinner Format: Unabridged Length: 20 hrs and 4 mins Language: English Release date: 12-20-17 Publisher: Audioliterature Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "Great Expectations" is a novel fully narrated in the first person about the personal growth and development of an orphan, nicknamed Pip. The novel is set in Kent and London in the early to mid-19th century and contains some of Dickens' most memorable scenes, including the opening in a graveyard, where the escaped convict, Abel Magwitch, accosts young Pip. "Great Expectations" is full of extreme imagery - poverty; prison ships and chains, and fights till death - and has a colorful cast of characters who have entered popular culture. These include the eccentric Miss Havisham, the beautiful but cold Estella, and Joe, the unsophisticated and kind blacksmith. Dickens' themes include wealth and poverty, love and rejection, and the eventual triumph of good over evil. "Great Expectations" (popular both with readers and literary critics) has been translated into many languages and adapted numerous times into various media. Artist Bio Author: Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: TV and Movies versions were good, but the book is better. . . One of my co-workers encouraged me to read this since I have only seen the TV/Movie versions. It was a quick read and very enjoyable. Fortunately, the TV/Movie versions weren't too far off the mark. Regardless, there were facets of the story that you would only get through the book, which is why reading the book will always be my favorite option. BAH! HUMBUG!! "God bless Us, Every One" A Christmas Carol is a beloved Christmas favorite. Nothing says Christmas like favorite Christmas stories. This timeless tale has been told in many versions. Iâve seen the movie and play but Iâve never read the book. I thought it was about time to finally read this tale. The illustrations throughout the book were fun to look at. Not common to find illustrations in books today unless they are children stories. Lots of great quotes come from this story but the most famous is BAH! HUMBUG! followed by: "God bless Us, Every One!" Standalone As great to read vs as to watch as a production. We've enjoyed many kinds of productions of this classic Scrooge story. The original makes us 'rise to the occasion' - or at least gets us to mentally take the time to step back in that era. Life was so different, so the real factor is (I think) a little richer, than already assembled viewables. Emotional, and the older language adds some incentive to digging into the story. A must read! Dickens has always intimidated me. Somehow, I made my way through high school and college without having to read one of his novels. Finally, a few weeks before Christmas, I decided to give this a try when I learned it is relatively short. I figured if it took some work, at least it wouldn't take all that long. I'm sorry I waited so long. It was impossible for me to separate this from the many versions of A Christmas Carol I've seen over the years. I loved it. I enjoyed the glimpse into the time and place of the story. The story and theme are, of course, legendary. Don't be intimidated.

Members Reviews: Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 stars Anne of Green Gables is a wonderful classic story and it gets 5 stars. This particular printing, however, is completely unacceptable. It's as if someone typed it into a document, and printed it off--no page numbers, not titled at the top of each page, the lines don't even break properly (see photo). Purchased as a gift, thankfully with enough time to purchase a better quality copy--probably for less money! A disgrace to the publishing community. I LOVED Anne of Green Gables as a child and own ... I LOVED Anne of Green Gables as a child and own the complete hard copy of the Anne series. Initially, I was delighted to find this collection of books written by one of my all time favorite authors for only $0.99 (kindle price. What a steal!) and felt I had to get the digital copy for my kindle at once. As soon as the product was delivered to my device, I began to read it since it's been years since I've visited the darling world that L.M Montgomery created. I was very surprised to find that I kept tripping on certain sentences; the writing didn't seem as smooth as I remembered. When I got to chapter 6, I decided to compare a sentence in the digital print to my old, yellowing physical copy of Anne of Green Gables book. I realized why I had some difficulty reading my new digital copy: THERE ARE TYPOS IN THIS PRODUCT. It contains the WORST kinds of typos. There are typos in which it results in sentences that don't make sense. There are typos with the wrong pronouns in them that make it confusing for the reader to understand which character the publisher meant to write about. I am able to follow the story because I've read Anne of Green Gables more than once with my hard copy but for new readers, these typos will make this beautiful story difficult to read and at times, understand. I hope the digital copy can be fixed so that owners can enjoy L.M. Montgomery's work as it was meant to be enjoyed. I have given this two stars instead of one because of the fabulous price for kindle readers. Bizarre Illustrations The illustrations are actually random pictures that are creepy since they are in the beginning when Anne meets Mathew Cuthbert so they insinuate a romance between them.

Screen shots of the "illustrations" below. who woulda thunk Two years ago I would have bet a bazillion dollars I would never read a "girls" book. But at 71 years of age I found myself in a house full of books only one of which I had not read. I am terrribly addicted to reading so, in desperation, I started "Anne of Green Gables". It is a marvelous book with a main character I wish I could meet every day in real life. Again to feed my addiction I bought the "Anne of Green Gables" series. Each book was a delight and I soon forgot that they were "girls" books. Maud created a character we all need in our life. She turns the mundane magical and believable. Reading them all in nearly a continous setting makes Anne "wearying" to quote Marilla since unbounded child-like wonder is hard to maintain.

Middlemarch [Italian Edition] Audiolibro di George Eliot

Ascolta questo libro audio completo gratuitamente su http://hotaudiobook.com/free Titolo: Middlemarch [Italian Edition] Sottotitolo: Uno studio della vita di provincia [A Study of Provincial Life] Autore: George Eliot Narratore: Silvia Cecchini Formato: Unabridged Durata: 31 hrs and 37 mins Lingua: Italiano Data di pubblicazione: 10-09-15 Editore: Collina d'oro Categoria: Classics, World Literature Riepilogo Editore: George Eliot è lo pseudonimo di Marie Anne Evans. Fu iniziato nel 1869, e poi ripreso ne 1871 fondendo tra loro diverse storie che presero l'aspetto di un romanzo a puntate. La prima edizione in un unico volume venne pubblicata nel 1874, ottenendo un'ampia diffusione. Il romanzo è ambientato a Middlemarch, una città di fantasia dell'Inghilterra centrale, tra il 1830 e il 1832, è composto da un intreccio di trame in cui figurano numerosi personaggi e ha per oggetto una grande varietà di temi come lo status delle donne, la natura del matrimonio, il conflitto tra idealismo e interessi personali, tra spiritualità e ipocrisia religiosa, nonché le riforme politiche e mediche del tempo. A questo ampio canovaccio con molti personaggi si aggiunge spesso la voce dell'autrice, a volte didattica, a volte ironica, mai banale.Virginia Woolf descrisse Middlemarch come "uno dei pochi romanzi inglesi veramente per adulti". Secondo Princhett, "Nessun romanzo vittoriano si avvicina a Middlemarch, nell'ampiezza dei suoi riferimenti, il suo potere intellettuale o l'imperturbabile vastità della sua narrativa...dubito che qualsiasi altro romanziere abbia altrettanto da insegnare ai moderni scrittori quanto George Eliot... Nessun autore ha mai rappresentato le ambiguità delle scelte morali in maniera così completa". Popolare fin dalla prima pubblicazione, il romanzo rimane uno dei più letti della storia della letteratura, benché meno conosciuto in Italia. Nel Gennaio del 2007, un libro intitolato "The top ten" inserì Middlemarch al numero dieci della classifica dei 10 libri più importanti di tutti i tempi. Please note: This audiobook is in Italian. Recensioni dei membri: Middlemarch I read The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot when I was about 17 years old. I remember the experience because I almost literally could not put the book down. I read for 14 hours straight until I finished the book. I even remember cooking pork chops with one hand while holding the book in the other hand so that I could read while I cooked. I cannot tell you now what the book was about (that was almost 40 years ago), just that I loved it and devoured it, along with the pork chops:-). After reading Middlemarch, I plan to reread The Mill on the Floss and read all her other novels as well. I loved Middlemarch, but I didnât devour it. I chewed it slowly - the writing too beautiful to swallow whole. It grabbed me right from the start and I knew I was in for a sublime reading experience. In many of the reviews I have read people have mentioned that Eliotâs narrative voice was not to their liking, finding it too didactic or distracting. I found her narrative to be one of the things I liked best. It was through this technique that most of the wisdom and life lessons were imparted.

Wishing to see at first hand the action of what would become known as the Crimean War, he was spurred on by a fierce patriotism, but also by an equally fierce desire to alert the authorities to appalling conditions in the army. The three Sebastopol Sketches - "December", "May", and "August" - re-create what happened during different phases of the siege and its effect on the ordinary men around him. Writing with the truth as his utmost aim, he brought home to Russia's entire literate public the atrocities of war. In doing so, he realized his own vocation as a writer and established his literary reputation. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Audiobook by Robert Louis Stevenson

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Author: Robert Louis Stevenson Narrator: Candle Swift Format: Unabridged Length: 2 hrs and 56 mins Language: English Release date: 12-20-17 Publisher: Audioliterature Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: The story centers on a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson, who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll and the evil Edward Hyde. The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often called "split personality" where, within the same body, there exists more than one distinct personality. The work is frequently interpreted as an examination of the duality of human nature, usually expressed as an inner struggle between good and evil. It has also been noted as "one of the best guidebooks of the Victorian era" because of its piercing description of the fundamental dichotomy of the 19th century "outward respectability and inward lust," as this period had a tendency for social hypocrisy. Artist Bio Author: Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer. His most famous works are "Treasure Island", "Kidnapped", and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Classic I read this because it's a classic, and I really love reading classics. This story is very short. I think it took me about an hour to read. I knew the basic premise of the story, but beyond that, the entire plot was new to me. I won't describe the plot because I don't want to spoil anything. However, I love the writing style, and I really like that the story is told by a third party who is friends with Dr. Jekyll. Overall, I give it four stars because I wish it had been a little longer. It felt a little rushed at the end, but maybe I was just reading too fast because I wanted to know what would happen. I would definitely recommend this book. It's an interesting story especially when Dr. Jekyll explains his reasoning. It's a lot of food for thought. Strange, but Great! Well that was odd. When you start reading a Classic, any Classic, you have to remember that it won't written like the books of today. I don't just mean that the wording will be more difficult, or even the sentence structure, I mean the viewpoint that the story is told from. I had expected this to be told from the point of view of the protagonist, Dr. Jekyll. Instead, it was told from the viewpoint of one of his friends, Mr. Utterson. I liked how it was told that way, you were able to see the other characters' reactions to Dr. Jekyll's strange behavior, and the curiosity to what may have caused it. You also are able to see their feelings toward Mr. Hyde, and how they completely disagree with Jekyll's decision to trust Hyde. The majority of the story is told this way. Hyde is a hated man, one who people despise at first glance, thought they can never place just why that is. Jekyll is respected and loved, but has begun to act strangely, with a lot of fear and distress. Nobody can quite figure out why this is, or why he spend time with Mr.Hyde, especially after Hyde murders an important man. Gleefully, he murdered him gleefully. The last two chapters change a bit. The second to last chapter is told as a letter from Lanyon, a friend of both Utterson and Jekyll. It tells of how he did Jekyll a favor, only to discover that Jekyll is Hyde, as Jekyll drank a cure before him. And the last chapter is told from the viewpoint of Dr.

Wells Narrator: George Doyle Format: Unabridged Length: 4 hrs and 54 mins Language: English Release date: 07-07-17 Publisher: Audioliterature Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 2 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: "The Island of Doctor Moreau" (1896) is a classic of early science fiction and remains one of Wells' best-known books, and has been adapted to film and other media on many occasions. The novel is the narration of Edward Prendick, a shipwrecked man rescued by a passing boat, and left on the island home of Doctor Moreau, who creates human-like hybrid beings from animals via vivisection. The novel deals with a number of philosophical themes, including pain and cruelty, moral responsibility, human identity, and human interference with nature. Wells described the novel as "an exercise in youthful blasphemy". ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Thought Provoking A thought provoking read. This being the third time I read this tome. Although the premise is far fetched I still wonder about the curiosity of humans to create beings in their own image. In current times the process used by Dr. Moreau is beyond plausible feasibility. Yet we have cloning and robotics and anomalies like the ape that was taught to communicate through sign language. All in the name of advancement and betterment of mankind. Wells remains a favorite author of mine. So What If It's A Classic This review is for the Kindle version with the Audible edition. I enjoyed the book although I can't say that it was the most compelling of stories. It is written well it just did not hold my interest very well. I would call it a mediocre read. An exquisite spell-binding delight; such good company! Anne, Gilbert, Miss Cornelia, Captain Jim, Leslie and their Prince Edward Island co-inhabitants invite us to share their lives and loves. In doing so, each of us is swept away to a place lending hope, warmth, comfort, and inspiration. To this point, Anneâs House of Dreams so wonderfully crowns the saga of Anne of Green Gables. Great read Wells wrote things that were difficult to have imagined during his life time I see why this book is on the 1001 books to read list. Wonderful This is a wonderful story. The portrait of each character is painted with all the colors of humanity. From beginning to end the reader becomes the invisible guest in the 'house of dreams'-sharing the fireside chats between friends, the joys and sorrows that weave there way in and out of each character's life. The wisdom of the elderly, the hopes and struggles of the young and the vivid description of life on the shores of Prince Edward Island make this a delightful read.

C'est compter sans la bienveillance des divinités tutélaires qui veillent sur son enfance. Car Pip a le privilège de vivre au milieu de créatures singulières dont l'existence seule accrédite la croyance au miracle : il y a tout d'abord le sourire débonnaire, l'amitié protectrice et complice de son beau-frère, le forgeron Joe Gargery, puis la rencontre terrifiante mais bientôt miraculeuse d'Abel Magwitch, forçat au grand cœur, émule de Jean Valjean, qui saura lui rendre au centuple son modeste bienfait. Mais il y a surtout la pittoresque Miss Havisham et son éblouissante protégée, Estella. Estella au nom prédestiné, dont la froide et fascinante beauté exalte et désespère tout à la fois le jeune Pip : "J'ai regardé les étoiles et j'ai pensé que ce serait affreux pour un homme en train de mourir de soif de tourner son visage vers elles et de ne trouver ni secours ni pitié dans cette multitude scintillante." Car les "grandes espérances" qui portent le jeune Pip ne sont pas les aspirations prosaïques de l'Angleterre victorienne, sa recherche du confort ou de la respectabilité, mais bien les puissances du rêve qui nous font chercher le bonheur au-delà de la Sagesse. >> Ce livre audio en version intégrale vous est proposé en exclusivité par Audible et est uniquement disponible en téléchargement. © domaine public (P)2017 Audible Studios Avis des membres: Traduction insatisfaisante.

It was written partially in the voice of Soldier Boy, who is Buffalo Bill's favorite horse, at a fictional frontier outpost with the U.S. 7th Cavalry. Excerpt: I am Buffalo Bill's horse. I have spent my life under his saddle - with him in it, too, and he is good for two hundred pounds, without his clothes; and there is no telling how much he does weigh when he is out on the war-path and has his batteries belted on. He is over six feet, is young, hasn't an ounce of waste flesh, is straight, graceful, springy in his motions, quick as a cat, and has a handsome face, and black hair dangling down on his shoulders, and is beautiful to look at; and nobody is braver than he is, and nobody is stronger, except myself. ©2017 Audioliterature (P)2017 Audioliterature Members Reviews: Dull I did not like this book. Evidence of Twain's talent! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I will admit that the end is not for the faint of heart! But true to Mark Twain's style, the book was vivid and creative. I don't particularly like books that humanize animals, but I think Twain did a fine job of telling the story from a horse's point of view. Good Book, Sad Ending (WARNING: Spoiler alert!) I liked the parts that were understandable, but the ending was so sad! Why did the Soldier Boy and the Cathy die? And the bull fighting...I hate that sport. It's so morbid, nasty, and horrible for the bull, not to mention the horses. Then they just kill the bull afterward? That's so unfair! How could it be a "beautiful sport" when pretty much everyone dies? mark twain at his best this was good but slow at times but the ending .... for a horse lover. just saying you have to read it, the story is quite indicitave of the times when it was written. true Twain. Why didn't I read this sooner? How did I miss this book when I was a younger avid reader? I love the different perspectives and the typical Twainisms: big SAT style words that are cleverly defined. I pictured Shirley Temple the whole way through. Additional bonus...it was FREE! Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Calificaciones: 2.5 de 5 de 2 votos Categorías: Classics, World Literature Resumen del editor: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe nació el 28 de agosto de 1749 en Frankfurt am Main (Alemania), hijo de un oficial del gobierno alemán. Tras residir en su ciudad natal, se trasladó a Leipzig para estudiar derecho. Allí conoce a una de las personas de mayor significación en su vida, el filósofo Johann Gottfried Von Herder. Con Herder, que le introduce en la obra de William Shakespeare, crea un nuevo movimiento literario, de carácter rebelde con las apariencias tradicionales de la literatura de su país, que se denominará "Sturm und Drang", el cual sienta las bases del romanticismo alemán y abre nuevas perspectivas a la escritura germana. Un viaje por tierras italianas le empapará de cultura grecorromana, abandonando parte de los postulados del "Sturm und Drang" y adoptando una postura más clasicista. Johann Wofgang Von Goethe fallecería en Weimar, el 22 de marzo de 1832. LAS DESVENTURAS DEL JOVEN WERTHER - Las desventuras del joven Werther (1774) es uno de los libros más populares y conocidos dentro de la amplia y extensa obra de Johann Wolfgang Goethe, uno de los grandes autores del romanticismo europeo. Partiendo de una experiencia amorosa personal, Goethe traspone la historia de un amor imposible -el sentimiento de Werther hacia Carlota- que acaba en un final trágico. El famoso suicidio de Werther impregna el romanticismo universal y establece la figura del héroe romántico capaz del máximo sacrificio -el de la vida por un sentimiento noble pero irrealizable como el del amor. Con Werther, novela epistolar, Goethe crea la figura del suicida romántico. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. Opiniones de los miembros: Para adolescentes y adultos cursis Aunque se trata de una historia clásica de la literatura, en realidad es como una telenovela y este tipo de temas han sido superados en muchas formas por autores contemporáneos. Dado que los narradores del libro son principalmente hombres, no debieron grabar el audio con una mujer; además, el acento de la narradora llega a ser insoportable con tanto énfasis en las eses, zetas y demás... Hubiera sido mejor utilizar a un narrador con acento en español estandarizado o latino. Y por último, todo el audiolibro tiene música de fondo y distrae demasiado. No era necesario agregarla, incluso aunque se trata de música de Beethoven. Parece como si este audiolibro haya sido realizado por personas no profesionales o estudiantes.

Poor recording, egotistic reading I had to switch this iff in the first two minutes after hearing how Miyamoto Mushashi's legendary book of five rings was described as "Japans answer to American strategy" And i quote exactly!!!

Eliot and Ezra Pound, by Lawrence of Arabia and Ernest Hemingway, as an extraordinary novel. Its author was in fact Frederic Manning, an Australian writer who fought in the Battle of the Somme in 1916, and who told his story of men at war from the perspective of an ordinary soldier. Never before published in Australia, The Middle Parts of Fortune is now recognized as a 20th-century classic. Editorial Reviews: Frederic Manning used his experience as a soldier in the British Army during World War I for this novel about life in the trenches, hailed as one of literature's most realistic depictions of war and a cult classic that would be celebrated by the likes of Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, T. E. Lawrence, and Ernest Hemingway. Stanley McGeagh performs Bourne, the author surrogate, as a man apart from fellow soldiers, giving his accent a tonier polish than that of his more working-class brethren, yet brings a warm, fraternal jocularity that showcases the camaraderie formed between soldiers during wartime. Critic Reviews: "The finest and noblest book of men in war." (Ernest Hemingway) Members Reviews: Bourne of WWI This is about Bourne of the British Expeditionary Force in France during WWI and about his and his infantry comrades lives during a matter of months. This tells of the gritty, dirty, exhausting, anxious, scared, and courageous existence of these men. It is told in the third person that is a insightful, sensitive, and bold masterpiece of the genre. The dialogue is of the dialect and the narrator did a great job adapting all the characters in an authentic way. I have read a good many WWI memoirs and novels and would say this one is one of the grittiest, having the visceral feel creative nonfiction. Difficult Read - I Liked it by the End What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting? War as it really is, both the boredom and the horror of it. Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Stanley McGeagh? Somebody who knows French! Great read - uncensored Any additional comments? Why weren't more books like this written? First hand accounts with genuine language and real (often gruesome) details. In the book, the average soldier is concerned with small, petty things when not fighting, and then can be suddenly - matter-of-factly - ended when in the front line. The writer - though the book is autobiographical - seems as detached as his main character is. There no sentimentality in the book - which came as quite a shock to me. I kept waiting for it, but it didn't come. Excellent book. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Der endlose Gedankengang, auf dem sich eine Vision aus der anderen entfaltet, erhielt Akzente in den Augenblicken fordernder Fragestellung und seliger Verzückung ... Wer nicht in der Gnade steht, ermüdet an der Fülle des Andranges. Heltau steht in der Gnade." Kontaktieren Sie mich für Fragen: inforeq17@gmail.com

Escuche este audio libro completo gratis en http://hotaudiobook.com/free Título: Memorias del subsuelo I [Notes from the Underground] Autor: Feodor Dostoievski Narrador: Miguel Ortíz Formato: Unabridged Duración: 3 hrs and 28 mins Idioma: Español Fecha de publicación: 10-22-10 Editor: NEAR, S.A. Calificaciones: 3 de 5 de 2 votos Categorías: Classics, World Literature Resumen del editor: Memorias del Subsuelo es una novela corta organizada en dos partes. La primera, que consta de once capítulos breves y es llamada "La Ratonera", es básicamente un monólogo interior en el que se nos presenta al protagonista, un miserable funcionario frustrado, como un antihéroe contradictorio, enfermizo y excitable, que dirige su charla a un público inexistente. La segunda parte, que nace a propósito de la "caída de nieve húmeda", consiste en el relato de una memoria del narrador, donde cuenta algo ocurrido en su juventud, relacionado con la despedida a Zvérkov, uno de sus antiguos compañeros de escuela. Memorias del Subsuelo tiene un importante trasfondo psicológico, y las cuestiones filosóficas que aborda son decisivas para comprender la obra posterior del escritor. Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. Opiniones de los miembros: Libro sobrevalorado para este siglo La historia de este libro se trata de puras quejas, remilgos y pseudofilosofìa de un hombre que sólo es uno de tantos con baja autoestima, que se cree más individualista de lo que en realidad es y que se comporta como un adolescente eterno. Tal vez fue una buena historia en el Siglo XIX, pero hoy en día esos discursos están muy superados por otros escritores y son más entretenidos. Por otra parte, les aviso que el narrador tiene acento de España, lo cual es muy molesto de escuchar por ser tan propenso a resaltar las eses, zetas y demás; hubiera sido mejor un narrador con un acento en español estandarizado o latino. Además, toda la historia tiene una innecesaria música de fondo que sólo distrae y cuyo sonido es demasiado alto, el audiolibro hubiera quedado mejor sin música de fondo de ningún tipo.

The French Revolution, Volume 2 Audiobook by Thomas Carlyle

Listen to audiobook in full for free on http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The French Revolution, Volume 2 Subtitle: The Constitution Author: Thomas Carlyle Narrator: Robert Bethune Format: Unabridged Length: 11 hrs and 52 mins Language: English Release date: 08-10-09 Publisher: Freshwater Seas Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 10 votes Genres: Classics, World Literature Publisher's Summary: Thomas Carlyle's The French Revolution is a landmark of literary history. Conceived not as a dry recounting of facts, but as a personal, vivid, direct and dramatic encounter with the turbulent times of revolutionary France, it is in fact an extended dramatic monologue in which we meet not only the striking personalities and events of the time, but the equally striking personality and mind of Thomas Carlyle himself. In this, the second volume of the series, we live out the course of the French Revolution from the aftermath of the fall of the Bastille to the insurrection of August 1792, which effectively brought the reign of Louis XVI to an end. Thomas Carlyle's writing is a true challenge to the reader and the listener. He does not write in the calm, objective, matter-of-fact style of a modern historian; quite the contrary! He writes as if he were there, a witness to history, passionately involved with the events that he makes unfold before our eyes. He gives his rare mastery of the outer reaches of the English language full scope, challenging us to grasp not only his complex thoughts, but his intricate manner of expressing them. Grappling with his mind and with the events of the Revolution at the same time is a powerful challenge for any reader or listener. Members Reviews: A literary history treat This book is a treat for the ears. It's like fine wine or anything else that needs intelligence, experience, and taste to be appreciated. I had to buy the hardbound copy so I would be able to read it over and over at leisure. The book is worth listening to for its rich range of expression and subtle humor even if you don't want to learn about the revolution, but having said that it is a first class description of those momentous events and renders them in a way that your dry dates-and-events histories could never rise to. A must for any student of history with a literary bent. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com
