George Eliot

The rain was still fallinf against the windows and the wind was blowing strongly. Inside the library, there was silence. Dorothea sat down on a coach in the middle of the room.

The idealistic Dorothea, unhappy and bored with her marriage, begins a sensitive friendship with her husband’s young cousin, Will Ladislaw. Meanwhile, the beautiful but spoilt Rosamond Vincey wants to marry the idealist but poor Doctor Lydgate. Lydgate does not want to get married, but Rosamond is determined to change his mind...

Chief Inspector Morse is drinking a pint of beer. He is thinking about an attractive woman who lives not far away. The woman he is thinking of is hanging, dead, from the ceiling of her kitchen. On the floor lies a chair, almost two metres away from the woman's feet. Chief Inspector Morse finishes his pint, and orders another. Perhaps he will visit Anne, after all. But he is in no particular hurry. Meanwhile, Anne is still hanging in her kitchen, waiting for the police to come and cut her down. She is in no hurry, either.

The Ghost

Издательство:

Автор:

Robert Harris

‘Why did an ex-prime minister identify the body?’ I asked. ‘Michael McAra,’ said Rick, my agent, looking straight into my eyes, ‘was helping him write his memoirs.’ And this where I should have left him sitting at the table and walked out into the London street, with the rest of my life safely ahead of me. When British prime minister Adam Lang’s ghostwriter, Michael McAra, dies in mysterious circumstances, a new writer is brought in to write Lang’s autobiography. But it soon becomes clear that Lang and his wife Roth are much more complicated couple than they first appear. The Ghost is a powerful commentary on the policies employed by the British government in the ‘War on Terror’.

Название:

The Mistress of Spices

Издательство:

Автор:

Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

The store has been here for only one year, but many people think that it has always been here. Above the door are fated brown letters which say: spice bazaar. I, too, look as if I have always been here. When customers enter, they see an old bent woman with skin the color of sand. The foods in my store remind them of India - the land most of them left behind when they came to America. They don’t know the truth about ma, of course. They don’t know that I’m not really old – that this body is not really mine. I am Tilo, the Mistress of Spices. I can see into the hearts and lives of my customers. I know all their problems.

Sense and Sensibility

Издательство:

Автор:

Jane Austen

Sometimes the Dashwood girls do not seem like sisters. Elinor is all calmness and reason, and can be relied upon for practical, common sense opinions. Marianne, on the other hand, is all sensibility, full of passionate and romantic feeling. She has no time for dull common sense - or for middle-aged men of thirty-five, long past the age of marriage. True love can only be felt by the young, of course. And if your heart is broken at the age of seventeen, how can you ever expect to recover from the passionate misery that fills your life, waking and sleeping?

You have always told me that your name is Ernest. I have introduced you to everyone as Ernest. You answer to the name Ernest. You look as if your name is Ernest. You are the most earnest-looking person I have ever seen in my life. It is perfectly ridiculous to tell me your name isn’t Ernest. Oscar Wilde´s comic masterpiece of love and mistaken indentity was a great hit when it first appeared on the stage in 1895. It has remained hugely popular with theatre audiences ever since.
