Book Summary: Hawaii, Honolulu... Dans l'imaginaire européen, ces noms évoquent des îles de rêve, frangées de cocotiers, de jeunes femmes vêtues de courts pagnes de fibre et de colliers de fleurs, dansant le, hula, au son de l'ukulele... C'est aussi le surf, né sur les crêtes des vagues océaniques déferlant sur les plages de l'archipel. C'est encore de magnifiques volcans, plus ou moins assoupis... Au-delà du " paradis pacifique " de Paul Claudel, l'auteur relate la rencontre de différents peuples sur ces îles, situées à 4 500 km au nord de Tahiti, 4 000 km des côtes de Californie et 6 000 km du Japon. Il raconte la découverte du capitaine Cook en 1778, les premiers contacts avec les habitants et le roi Kamehameha, les traces de leur histoire - pétroglyphes, lieux sacrés, heiau - les vagues migratoires du XIXe siècle - Américains, Chinois, Portugais, Japonais... Devenu cinquantième Etat des Etats-Unis en 1959, Hawaii offre aujourd'hui un étrange mélange de ressources, de modes de vie. Mais sa principale richesse est d'avoir su intégrer sans discrimination trop évidente des cultures et des populations variées. " Colonisation réussie ", " Amérique tropicalisée et asiatisée ", l'archipel a inventé sa culture à la fois locale et ouverte sur le monde. Un modèle pour le XXIème siècle ?

Book Summary: Pour un né natif qui fréquente Paris depuis des décennies, l’amour y va par aveuglement et par caprices, étouffant un jour, un autre jour euphorique, un jour dans le refus, un autre jour dans le dithyrambe. Marcher dans les rues de Paris, c’est s’y perdre et s’y reconnaître, détailler Paris c’est, trahir et faire allégeance. Nid à surprises et nœud de rituels, Paris par cœur court toutes les chances en épousant les aléas de l’errance saute-ruisseau, au gré des humeurs, en jouant des échos et des renvois pour chanter librement, se plaindre, rire, dévisageant cette encyclopédie des fables qu’est toute ville, et celle-ci singulièrement. L. J. De la place des Abbesses à la brasserie Zeyer, décalé, érudit, sensible, souriant de sa nostalgie comme d’une vieille plaisanterie, Ludovic Janvier revisite cette ville connue autant que rêvée sous forme d’abécédaire, ces livres pleins de doubles-fonds, de sauts en avant et de retours en arrière qui font la joie des poètes et des flâneurs des deux rives. Si la littérature consiste à faire voir différemment ce qu’on croyait pourtant bien connaître, c’est sans conteste dans cette catégorie qu’il faut ranger ce faux dictionnaire, vraie machine à voyager dans le temps, guide incomplet mais émouvant, aléatoire mais jubilatoire, destiné à tous les promeneurs qui savent qu’une ville est faite de chair et sang plutôt que de pierres et de briques. Romancier, essayiste et poète, Ludovic Janvier est né en 1934 à Paris, où il s’est éteint le 18 janvier 2016. Dans son hommage publié par Le Monde des livres, Patrick Kéchichian écrit : « Ce qui lui importe, c’est la manière de nommer, de former et de déformer, de métamorphoser cette “matière à musique” de la vie. »

Book Summary: Three brothers and their relations in 19th century Russia provide the base for a sweeping epic overview of human striving, folly and hope. First published in 1880, The Brothers Karamazov is a landmark work in every respect. Revolving around shiftless father Fyodor Pavlovich Karamazov are the fates of his three sons, each of whom has fortunes entwined with the others. The eldest son, Dimitri, seeks an inheritance from his father and becomes his rival in love. Ivan, the second son, is so at odds with the world that he is driven near to madness, while the youngest, Alexi, is a man of faith and a natural optimist. These personalities are drawn out and tested in a crucible of conflict and emotion as the author forces upon them fundamental questions of morality, faith, reason and responsibility. This charged situation is pushed to its limit by the addition of the unthinkable, murder and possible patricide. Using shifting viewpoints and delving into the minds of his characters, Dostoevsky adopted fresh techniques to tell his wide-reaching story with power and startling effectiveness. The Brothers Karamazov remains one of the most respected and celebrated novels in all literature and continues to reward readers beyond expectation. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Brothers Karamazov is both modern and readable.

Book Summary: Brad Thor's Summer 2018 Fiction Pick for THE TODAY SHOW! "Eerie, dark, and compelling, [The Book of M] will not disappoint lovers of The Passage (2010) and Station Eleven (2014)." --Booklist WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP TO REMEMBER? Set in a dangerous near future world, The Book of M tells the captivating story of a group of ordinary people caught in an extraordinary catastrophe who risk everything to save the ones they love. It is a sweeping debut that illuminates the power that memories have not only on the heart, but on the world itself. One afternoon at an outdoor market in India, a man’s shadow disappears—an occurrence science cannot explain. He is only the first. The phenomenon spreads like a plague, and while those afflicted gain a strange new power, it comes at a horrible price: the loss of all their memories. Ory and his wife Max have escaped the Forgetting so far by hiding in an abandoned hotel deep in the woods. Their new life feels almost normal, until one day Max’s shadow disappears too. Knowing that the more she forgets, the more dangerous she will become to Ory, Max runs away. But Ory refuses to give up the time they have left together. Desperate to find Max before her memory disappears completely, he follows her trail across a perilous, unrecognizable world, braving the threat of roaming bandits, the call to a new war being waged on the ruins of the capital, and the rise of a sinister cult that worships the shadowless. As they journey, each searches for answers: for Ory, about love, about survival, about hope; and for Max, about a new force growing in the south that may hold the cure. Like The Passage and Station Eleven, this haunting, thought-provoking, and beautiful novel explores fundamental questions of memory, connection, and what it means to be human in a world turned upside down.

Book Summary: Set in the French and Spanish courts of the eighteenth century, this novel is based on a true story about the fate of two young princesses caught in the intrigues and secrets of the moment Philippe d’Orléans, the regent of France, has a gangrenous heart—the result of a life of debauchery, alcohol, power, and flattery. One morning in 1721, he decides to marry eleven-year-old Louis XV to the daughter of Philippe V of Spain, who is only four. Orléans hopes this will tie his kingdom to Spain. But were Louis to die without begetting an heir—the likeliness of which is greatly increased by having a child bride—Orléans himself would finally be king. Orléans tosses his own daughter into the bargain, the twelve-year-old Mlle de Montpensier, who will marry the Prince of Asturias, the heir to the Spanish throne. The Spanish court enthusiastically agrees and arrangements are made. The two nations trade their princesses in a grand ceremony in 1722, making bonds that should end the historical conflict. Nothing turns out as expected.

Book Summary: Inception meets True Detective in this science fiction thriller of spellbinding tension and staggering scope that follows a special agent into a savage murder case with grave implications for the fate of mankind... “I promise you have never read a story like this.”—Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter Shannon Moss is part of a clandestine division within the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. In western Pennsylvania, 1997, she is assigned to solve the murder of a Navy SEAL's family—and to locate his vanished teenage daughter. Though she can't share the information with conventional law enforcement, Moss discovers that the missing SEAL was an astronaut aboard the spaceship U.S.S. Libra—a ship assumed lost to the currents of Deep Time. Moss knows first-hand the mental trauma of time-travel and believes the SEAL's experience with the future has triggered this violence. Determined to find the missing girl and driven by a troubling connection from her own past, Moss travels ahead in time to explore possible versions of the future, seeking evidence to crack the present-day case. To her horror, the future reveals that it's not only the fate of a family that hinges on her work, for what she witnesses rising over time's horizon and hurtling toward the present is the Terminus: the terrifying and cataclysmic end of humanity itself. Luminous and unsettling, The Gone World bristles with world-shattering ideas yet remains at its heart an intensely human story.

Book Summary: From bestselling comic-book franchise writer Charles Soule comes a clever and witty first novel of a twentysomething New Yorker who wakes up one morning with the power to predict the future—perfect for fans of Joe Hill and Brad Meltzer, or books like This Book Is Full of Spiders and Welcome to Night Vale. Knowledge is power. So when an unassuming Manhattan bassist named Will Dando awakens from a dream one morning with 108 predictions about the future in his head, he rapidly finds himself the most powerful man in the world. Protecting his anonymity by calling himself the Oracle, he sets up a heavily guarded Web site with the help of his friend Hamza to selectively announce his revelations. In no time, global corporations are offering him millions for exclusive access, eager to profit from his prophecies. He's also making a lot of high-powered enemies, from the President of the United States and a nationally prominent televangelist to a warlord with a nuclear missile and an assassin grandmother. Legions of cyber spies are unleashed to hack the Site—as it's come to be called—and the best manhunters money can buy are deployed not only to unmask the Oracle but to take him out of the game entirely. With only a handful of people he can trust—including a beautiful journalist—it's all Will can do to simply survive, elude exposure, and protect those he loves long enough to use his knowledge to save the world. Delivering fast-paced adventure on a global scale as well as sharp-witted satire on our concepts of power and faith, Marvel writer Charles Soule's audacious debut novel takes readers on a rollicking ride where it's impossible to predict what will happen next.

Sure, she’s only an understudy for the Avalon Players, a third-tier repertory company so far off-Broadway it might as well be in Hoboken, but things are looking up—the lead has broken her ankle and Kelley’s about to step into the role of Titania the Faerie Queen in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But Faeries are far more real than Kelley thinks, and a chance encounter in Central Park with a handsome young man named Sonny Flannery plunges her into an adventure she could never have imagined. Sonny and Kelley find themselves drawn to each other—and into a terrible plot that could spell disaster for both New York and the Faerie realm alike.

Book Summary: What is politics? What are the origins of political philosophy? What can we learn from the Greeks and Romans? In Greek and Roman Political Ideas, acclaimed classics scholar Melissa Lane introduces the reader to the foundations of Western political thought, from the Greeks, who invented democracy, to the Romans, who created a republic and then transformed it into an empire. Tracing the origins of political philosophy from Socrates to Cicero to Plutarch, Lane reminds us that the birth of politics was as much a story of individuals as ideas.
