Eine hinreißende Geschichte über Pflanzen, Liebe und die Wissenschaft Hope Jahren hat das, wovon viele Menschen träumen: einen Beruf, der ihr Herz und ihr Leben erfüllt. Seit sie denken kann, ist die Geo-Biologin fasziniert von der Natur – von Pflanzen, Bäumen, Blättern, Samenkörnern und den unglaublichen Geschichten, die sie uns erzählen, sogar noch in fossiler Form. Wie ist es beispielsweise möglich, dass ein Kirschkern hundert Jahre lang geduldig warten kann, bis er sich auf einmal dazu entscheidet zu keimen? Hope Jahrens Werdegang von der kindlichen Forscherin zur angesehenen Wissenschaftlerin, die sich trotz zahlreicher Hindernisse in einer Männerwelt behauptet, ist eine inspirierende und mitreißende Geschichte voller Leidenschaft, Durchhaltevermögen und ewiger Neugierde. Ein wunderbares Gleichnis über die Kraft der Natur und die Freude des Entdeckens, das einen ganz neuen Blick auf die Pflanzenwelt eröffnet. Seite für Seite. Blatt für Blatt. Für die New York Times ist Hope Jahrens »Blattgeflüster« eines der 100 besten Bücher des Jahres 2016.

Babes in the Darkling Wood A Novel of Ideas

Author: H. G. Wells
Publisher: Read Books Ltd

Release Date: 2016-09-13
Genre: Fiction

This is H. G. Wells' 1940 novel, “Babes in the Darkling Wood - A Novel of Ideas”. Stella has the world at her feet – good looks, brains, and a place at Cambridge University. Together with her admirer Gemini, she becomes interested in the work and mind of a psycho-therapist with exciting new ideas. However, when tragedy encroaches on their lives they soon come to realise that intellectualism brings little comfort or solace. “Babes in the Darkling Wood” is a powerful tale of fluctuating fortunes that presents an interesting dialogue of contemporary developments in psychoanalytical theory. This book is not to be missed by fans of Wells' work and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Genre: Fiction

In Britney King’s powerful novel, reminiscent of the bestselling works of Cecelia Ahern and Jojo Moyes, comes a heartbreaking, yet beautiful tale about the lengths one will go to hold on to love. They say opposites attract. For Jack and Amelie, that statement is about as close to the truth as it gets. She runs from anything that so much smells like love. And, well, as for Jack, he's always been a fan of the chase. Especially where she's concerned. Which is exactly what happens when he proposes... to accompany her on a cross-country road trip. A bet is made. True to form, Jack puts everything on the table—while Amelie keeps her cards tucked close to her heart. The question remaining when it all shakes out—is whether it's possible they can both win? Will a road trip across the country finally teach them to meet in the middle? Or simply drive them further apart? This is the continuation of a love story that (like many) was never really over. Anywhere With You is the send book in the 'With You' Series. Jack and Amelie's story began in Somewhere With You.

He knows she's been hurt in the past, but he wants to be that guy she can trust. The one thing Josie has never been able to count on is the people closest to her.

Chuck Palahniuk Parodist

Author: David McCracken
Publisher: McFarland
ISBN: 9780786479290
Release Date: 2016-07-12
Genre: Literary Criticism

Chuck Palahniuk, America's premier transgressive novelist, enjoys a tremendous readership. Yet he has not necessarily been embraced by critics or academics. His prose is considered vulgar by some, but his body of work addresses a core motivation of 21st-century life: individual self-empowerment. Palahniuk writes about what it means to be on the outside looking in, revising familiar narratives for a contemporary audience to get at the heart of the human condition--everyone wants a chance to win his or her fair share, no matter the cost. In Haunted, Snuff, Pygmy, Tell-All, Damned and Invisible Monsters Remix, he confronts marginalization and disenfranchisement through parodies of various works--The Decameron, The Inferno, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, The Elephant Man--as well as Hollywood history, 1970s karate films and the porn industry. This comprehensive study of six novels refutes criticism that Palahniuk's goals are to shock and sensationalize.
