Convinced that "3 or 4 families in a country village is the very thing to work upon," Austen created a brilliant tragicomedy of flirtation and folly.

Austen brings to life a myriad of engaging characters and presents a mixture of social classes as she did in Pride and Prejudice. Her two greatest comic characters are part of Emma's machinations-the eccentric Mr. Woodhouse and the quintessential bore, Miss Bates. Delightfully funny, Emma displays the shrewd wit and delicate irony which made Jane Austen a master of the English novel. Although Austen thought that only she would like her witty, fanciful, self-deluded heroine, Emma has gained the affection of generations of readers+-+01800269964699ocn043821614rcrd19930.13Ten Boom, CorrieThe hiding placeHistoryPersonal narrativesDramaPersonal narratives DutchRadio programsRadio playsThis is the story of how Corrie and her family became leaders in the Dutch Underground, hiding Jewish people in a specially built room in their house and aiding their escape from the Nazis+-+287446132546312ocn085787580file20060.13Heller, ZoëWhat was she thinking?

The Odyssey is concerned with Odysseus' difficulties in returning home after the Trojan War, which was won by the Greeks. It is unquestionably one of the great epic masterpieces of Western literature and a storehouse of Greek folklore and myth. With its wise and always magnificent hero and its romantic theme, The Odyssey has established itself as perhaps the greatest adventure story of all time+-+20760613253244169ocn230966224rcrd20080.13Tuchman, Barbara WThe guns of AugustIn this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, historian Barbara Tuchman brings to life the people and events that led up to World War I.

Not unusual for a proper bath, but highly irregular for murder -- especially with a pair of gold pince-nez deliberately perched before the sightless eyes. What's more, the face appeared to have been shaved after death. The police assumed that the victim was a prominent financier, but Lord Peter Wimsey, who dabbled in mystery detection as a hobby, knew better. In this, his first murder case, Lord Peter untangles the ghastly mystery of the corpse in the bath+-+70598613253243849ocn461597249file19940.13Brontë, CharlotteJane EyreHistoryJuvenile worksFictionStories, plots, etcAudio adaptationsBildungsromansHigh interest-low vocabulary booksHistorical fictionLove storiesJane Eyre, a plain yet spirited governess, introduced a new kind of heroine: one whose virtuous integrity, sharp intellect, and tireless perseverance broke through class barriers to win equal stature with the man she loved+-+159562699632437712ocn068710166file20050.15Tuchman, Barbara WA distant mirror the calamitous 14th centuryHistoryBiographyThe fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering time of crusades and castles, cathedrals and chivalry, and the exquisitely decorated Books of Hours; and on the other, a time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world of chaos and the plague. Barbara Tuchman reveals both the great rhythms of history and the grain and texture of domestic life as it was lived. Here are the guilty passions, loyalties and treacheries, political assassinations, sea battles and sieges, corruption in high places and a yearning for reform, satire and humor, sorcery and demonology, and lust and sadism on the stage. Here are proud cardinals, beggars, feminists, university scholars, grocers, bankers, mercenaries, mystics, lawyers and tax collectors, and, dominating all, the knight in his valor and "furious follies," a "terrible worm in an iron cocoon."+-+594706132532436310ocn044455992file19950.06Lofting, HughThe story of Doctor DolittleJuvenile worksFictionThe adventures of a kind-hearted doctor, who is fond of animals and understands their language, as he travels to Africa with some of his favorite pets to cure the monkeys of a terrible sickness+-+367786132532435416ocn050787388rcrd20010.07Potter, BeatrixTales of Beatrix PotterJuvenile worksFictionA collection of eighteen tales about Peter Rabbit, Tom Kitten, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tittlemouse, and the others+-+433946132532434813ocn221250199rcrd19890.13Eliot, GeorgeSilas MarnerHistoryFictionDramaDomestic fictionHistorical fictionPastoral fictionRadio playsSilas Marner is a gentle linen weaver who is wrongly accused of a heinous theft that was committed by his best friend.

In the highest circle of New York social life during the 1870s, Newland Archer, a young lawyer, prepares to marry the docile May Welland. But before their engagement is announced, he meets the mysterious, nonconformist Countess Ellen Olenska, May's cousin, who has returned to New York after a long absence. Ellen mirrors his own sense of disillusionment with society and the "good marriage" he is about to embark upon and provokes a moral struggle within him as he continues to go through the motions. A social commentary of surprising compassion and insight, The age of innocence toes the line between the comedy of manners and the tragedy of thwarted love+-+5040378896324+-+8218861325324+-+8218861325324Thu Oct 16 15:51:04 EDT 2014batch43696
