  • Ulysses (Owc)* (2008)

    Ulysses (Owc)* (2008)

    Joyce, James
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Ulysses, one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day, 16 June 1904, the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalusthrough the streets of Dublin. Each episode has its own literary style, and the epic journey of Odysseus is only one of many correspondencies that add layers of meaning to the text.

    One Hundred Years of Solitude *

    Garcia Márquez,Gabriel
    Kiadó: Penguin Books Ltd.
    Gabriel García Márquez's great masterpiece is the story of seven generations of the Buendía family and of Macondo, the town they have built. Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even itswonders and miracles. A microcosm of Columbian life, its secrets lie hidden, encoded in a book and only Aureliano Buendía can fathom its mysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny. Blending political reality with magic realism, fantasy with comicinvention, One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the most daringly original works of the twentieth century.

    The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night-Time *

    Haddon,Mark
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    A tizenöt éves Christopher autista: nagyon sokat tud a matematikáról és a fizikáról, de nagyon keveset az emberi érzelmekről. Nem szereti, ha hozzáérnek, és nem hajlandó megérinteni semmit, ami sárga vagy barna. Űrhajós szeretne lenni, de még sohasemjárt a szülei nélkül az utcájukon túl.

Ígykezdődnek Christopher különös kalandjai, melyek során nemcsak a kutya gyilkosának kilétére derül fény, hanem ennél jóval fontosabb dolgokra is, amelyek sok mindent megváltoztatnak mind az ő, mind a szülei életében. Mark Haddon bámulatos beleérzésselábrázolja az autista fiú végtelenül racionális gondolkodását, sajátos érzelemvilágát, s könyve izgalmas és megható olvasmány lehet gyerekeknek és felnőtteknek egyaránt. Az angliai Oxfordban élő Mark Haddon tizenöt gyerekkönyv szerzője, emellettillusztrátor és forgatókönyvíró.

  • The Catcher In The Rye *

    The Catcher In The Rye *

    Salinger,J.D.
    Kiadó: Penguin Books Ltd.
    The Catcher in Rye is the ultimate novel for disaffected youth, but it's relevant to all ages. The story is told by Holden Caulfield, a seventeen- year-old dropout who has just been kicked out of his fourth school. Throughout, Holden dissects the 'phony'aspects of society, and the 'phonies' themselves: the headmaster whose affability depends on the wealth of the parents, his roommate who scores with girls using sickly-sweet affection.Lazy in style, full of slang and swear words, it's a novel whoseinterest and appeal comes from its observations rather than its plot intrigues (in conventional terms, there is hardly any plot at all). Salinger's style creates an effect of conversation, it is as though Holden is speaking to you personally, as thoughyou too have seen through the pretences of the American Dream and are growing up unable to see the point of living in, or contributing to, the society around you.Written with the clarity of a boy leaving childhood, it deals with society, love, loss, andexpectations without ever falling into the clutch of a cliche.
