The Pridelands are a small slice of heaven, ruled by Mufasa, the Lion King. His son Simba is preoccupied with life and all its potential, and neglects the lessons Mufasa tries to impart. Scar, Mufasa's brother has lived his adult in the shadow of his better looking, more successful, universally adored sibling. Capitalizing upon Simba's youthful exuberance and reckless abandon, Scar manipulates his nephew into playing the key role in his ascension to power, and believing himself guilty of Mufasa's death. Simba flees from his home and family in shame and disgrace, never to return. Years of abuse and neglect under King Scar begin, and the Pridelands are devastated, and lionesses are hunting far outside their boundaries. One such is Nala, who discovers the exiled Simba, who must face the ghosts and demons of his past to save the ones he loves

As Darkness Falls, The Last Dragon Will Choose Its Rider. When Eragon (Edward Speleers) finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realises he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight, his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller called Brom (Jeremy Irons) for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon named Saphira must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by King Galbatorix (John Malkovich), whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands. Based on the best-selling fantasy novel by teenage author Christopher Paolini

Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Recording )

37 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause célèbre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit abound in this account of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America, but most of all, it is a meditation on love, love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation
