Book Summary: William Golding's Lord of the Flies is a dystopian classic: 'exciting, relevant and thought-provoking' (Stephen King). When a group of schoolboys are stranded on a desert island, what could go wrong? 'One of my favorite books - I read it every couple of years.' (Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games) A plane crashes on a desert island. The only survivors are a group of schoolboys. By day, they discover fantastic wildlife and dazzling beaches, learning to survive; at night, they are haunted by nightmares of a primitive beast. Orphaned by society, it isn't long before their innocent childhood games devolve into a savage, murderous hunt ... 'Stands out mightily in my memory ... Such a strong statement about the human heart.' (Patricia Cornwell) 'Terrifying and haunting.' (Kingsley Amis) 'Beautifully written, tragic and provocative.' (E. M. Forster) ONE OF THE BBC'S ICONIC 'NOVELS THAT SHAPED OUR WORLD' What readers are saying: 'Every real human being should read this ... This is what we are.' 'It's brilliant, it's captivating, it's thought provoking and brutal and for some, its truly terrifying.' 'It can be read and re-read many times, and every time something new will appear.' 'There is a reason why this is studied at school ... Excellent read.' 'This is one of the few books I've read that I keep on my Kindle to read again.' 'I revisit this every few years and it's always fresh and impressive ... One of the best books I've ever read.'

Book Summary: New York Times Bestseller My disease is as rare as it is famous. It's a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I'm allergic to the world. I don't leave my house, have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next door neighbors. I look out the window, and I see him. He's tall, lean and wearing all black--black t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change--starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer. Maybe we can't predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It's almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Book Summary: First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination. A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once.

Book Summary: Volume 2 of the Palik Series, published in conjunction with the North American Jules Verne Society Marooned With Uncle Robinson Castaway by pirates on a deserted island Without tools or supplies to survive A mother and her children have only a kindly old sailor to help. But what explains the strange flora and fauna they find on the isle? The second volume in the Palik series, presented by the North American Jules Verne Society, offers another story never before published in English. Shipwrecked Family was rejected by Verne’s publisher, so rather than finish it, he rewrote it with new characters. That book became the classic The Mysterious Island in which Captain Nemo made his last appearance. Presented here is Verne’s original draft of that novel—one which is very different from the book that it eventually became. Expert translation is provided by Sidney Kravitz, also translator of the definitive modern edition of The Mysterious Island. Translated by Sidney Kravitz; Introduction by Brian Taves.

Book Summary: First love. Second chances. In Catalina Cove, anything can happen… Bryce Witherspoon’s heart races every time she sees Kaegan Chambray. Everyone in town knows they can’t stand each other, but the truth is, even though the man broke her heart ten years ago, she still feels that irresistible, oh-so-familiar jolt of desire. When Kaegan returned to Catalina Cove to run the family business, he knew there’d be no avoiding Bryce. The woman he thought he’d one day marry was instead the biggest heartbreak of his life. But when Bryce lets slip a devastating secret, he discovers just how wrong he was to let her go all those years ago. He knows they both still feel the spark between them, but it’ll take more than attraction to convince her. Kaegan will pull out all the stops to show Bryce he’s the man who can give her the future they once dreamed of—if only they give love a second chance.

Book Summary: Un ouvrage passionnant qui retrace la grande saga des microbes et l’histoire des épidémies, des vaccins et des antibiotiques. « Vers trois heures de l'après-midi, je vis des petites anguilles ou des petits vers qui s'enchevêtraient et se tortillaient. C'était parmi toutes les merveilles de la nature, la plus prodigieuse, et je dois ajouter que je n'ai pas éprouvé de plus grand plaisir que celui de voir plusieurs milliers de créatures dans une gouttelette d'eau se déplacer les unes parmi les autres, chacune animée de son propre mouvement. » Dans une infusion de poire, avec un microscope rudimentaire, Antoine van Leeuwenhoek, obscur drapier de Delft, fut le premier être humain à observer des bactéries. Cette incroyable découverte date du 10 juillet 1676, et pourtant, les microbes furent les premiers créatures vivantes apparues sur Terre il y a plus de trois milliards d'années. D’êtres unicellulaires, les microbes ont évolué vers des organismes complexes qui ont donné naissance aux plantes, aux animaux et… aux hommes. A l'heure où de nouvelles menaces liées à l'émergence de nouveaux microbes, de nouvelles pandémies et du bioterrorisme, peuvent mettre en péril notre survie, cet ouvrage érudit et vivant est un plaidoyer montrant que nous n'avons jamais eu autant besoin d'une science maîtrisée au service du progrès humain...

Book Summary: Chaque jour, ce sont près de sept enfants ou adolescents qui meurent par balle aux États-Unis. Cette statistique glaçante ne peut rendre compte à elle seule des vies détruites par les armes à feu, Gary Younge a donc décidé de raconter le destin des jeunes gens tués au cours d’une journée choisie au hasard. Ils sont dix à être abattus le 23 novembre 2013, dix enfants et adolescents âgés de 9 à 19 ans : sept noirs, deux hispaniques, un blanc. Gary Younge consacre un chapitre à chacune de ces victimes tuées par balle, parfois par accident, parfois lors d’un règlement de comptes : Jaiden, Kenneth, Stanley, Pedro, Tyler, Edwin, Samuel, Tyshon, Gary et Gustin. En recoupant les entretiens qu’il a menés avec leurs proches, les rapports de la police, du « 911 » et des journalistes locaux, il reconstitue la vie et les dernières minutes de ces jeunes, victimes de leur condition sociale, de la négligence des adultes, des lobbys. Vibrante immersion dans ces dix courtes vies, Une journée dans la mort de l’Amérique est un ouvrage aussi précis qu’intense. Gary Younge déploie tout son savoir-faire narratif pour nous immerger dans les États-Unis d’aujourd’hui et nous inviter à réfléchir, sans tabou, à cette tragédie américaine.

Book Summary: Série Lac des Saules, tome 1 A vingt-sept ans, Olivia Bellamy a déjà deux fiançailles annulées derrière elle. Et alors qu’elle s’attend à une demande en mariage, son petit ami lui annonce leur rupture. Pour tromper son désespoir, elle accepte la proposition de sa grand-mère : passer l’été au lac des Saules pour remettre en état le camp de vacances appartenant à ses grands-parents et où, enfant, elle a passé tous ses étés. Pour la décoratrice de talent qu’elle est, la mission est passionnante. D’autant plus que l’endroit est paradisiaque et empreint de nostalgie... même s’il ne lui évoque pas que de bons souvenirs. Adolescente mal dans sa peau et fragilisée par le divorce de ses parents, elle y a, à l’époque, beaucoup souffert. Une seule personne, alors, l’aidait à supporter le rejet des autres... une personne à laquelle elle se refuse de penser : le passé est passé. Mais voilà que, le jour où se présente l’entrepreneur venu l’aider à réaliser son projet, elle reconnaît avec stupéfaction Connor Davis, le garçon qu’elle a secrètement aimé durant son adolescence... et qui lui a brisé le cœur. A propos de l'auteur : Professeur diplômée de Harvard, Susan Wiggs a écrit plus de vingt-cinq romans, tous empreints d'une émotion et d'une finesse psychologique qui lui ont valu d'être plébiscitée par la critique et d'émouvoir, mais aussi de faire sourire ses lectrices dans le monde entier.
