Roth, Veronica

The Divergent trilogy / Veronica Roth

[S.l.] : HarperCollins Children's Books, 2014

Abstract: No. 1 New York Times bestsellers DIVERGENT, INSURGENT and ALLEGIANT in collector's trilogy set. DIVERGENT - a major motion picture in 2014. Divergent: In the world of Divergent, society is divided into five factions and all are forced to choose where they belong. The choice Beatrice Prior makes shocks everyone, including herself. Once decisions are made faction members are forced to undergo extreme initiation tests with devastating consequences. Tris must determine who her friends are - and whether the man who both threatens and protects her is really on her side. Because Tris has a deadly secret. As growing conflict threatens to unravel their seemingly perfect society, this secret might save those Tris loves...or it might destroy her. Insurgent: One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. Tris Prior's initiation day should have been marked by celebrations; instead it ended with unspeakable horrors. Now unrest surges in the factions around her as conflict between their ideologies grows. In times of war sides must be chosen and secrets will emerge. Tris has already paid a terrible price for survival and is wracked by haunting guilt. But radical new discoveries and shifting relationships mean that she must fully embrace her Divergence - even though she stands to lose everything...Allegiant: The faction-based society that Tris once believed in is shattered - fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she's known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she will find a simple new life, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties and painful memories. But Tris's new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature - and of herself - while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.

Wilt / Tom Sharpe

London : Arrow, 2002

Abstract: Henry Wilt, tied to a daft job and a domineering wife, has just been passed over for promotion yet again. Ahead of him at the Polytechnic stretch years of trying to thump literature into the heads of plasterers, joiners, butchers and the like. And things are no better at home where his massive wife, Eva, is given to boundless and unpredictable fits of enthusiasm -for transcendental meditation, yoga or the trampoline. But if Wilt can do nothing about his job, he can do something about his wife, in imagination at least, and his fantasies grow daily more murderous and more concrete. After a peculiarly nasty experience at a party thrown by particularly nasty Americans, Wilt finds himself in several embarrassing positions: Eva stalks out in stratospheric dudgeon, and Wilt, under the inspiration of gin, puts one of his more vindictive fantasies into effect. But suspicions are instantly aroused and Wilt rapidly achieves an unenviable notoriety in the role of The Man Helping Police With Their Enquiries. Or is he exactly helping? Wilt's problem -although he's on the other side of the fence -is the same as Inspector Flint's: where is Eva Wilt? But Wilt begins to flourish in the heat of the investigation, and as the police stoke the flames of circumstantial evidence, Wilt deploys all his powers to show that the Law can't tell a Missing Person from a hole in the ground.

Salgari, Emilio

Le corsaire noir et autres romans exotiques / Emilio Salgari ; traduit par Jean Fargeau

[S.l.] : Laffont, 2002

Abstract: Ce sont Le Corsaire Noir et Les Mystères de la jungle noire qui, dès la fin du XIXe siècle, ont bâti la célébrité d'Emilio Salgari (1862-1911). Le succès de ces romans fut immédiat, engendrant de nombreuses traductions et adaptations. Récemment encore, la télévision et la bande dessinée se sont emparées des aventures de Sandokan. Mais le texte était devenu introuvable en français. Le voici à nouveau, accompagné d'autres aventures qui lui font suite, car Salgari avait l'habitude de construire des cycles romanesques, tout comme Alexandre Dumas, Fenimore Cooper, Eugène Sue et Jules Verne ou Karl May, dont il est le digne émule. En effet, Salgari est sans doute le romancier italien le plus productif et le plus populaire. Avant de se consacrer à l'écriture, il avait beaucoup voyagé, au point de se construire une véritable légende de loup de mer. Toutefois, s'il a sans doute parcouru nombre de pays lointains qu'il a décrit, il a probablement vagabondé davantage encore dans son imagination. Et celle-ci est sans limite. Salgari n'a pas son pareil pour camper un décor exotique dans lequel évoluent ses personnages, aventuriers hors du commun, plus critiques à l'égard de la civilisation de leur temps que la moyenne des héros de récits d'aventures. Ainsi, Salgari n'hésite pas, à travers ses romans, à dénoncer les méfaits du colonialisme. Mais il reste avant tout le grand maître de l'exotisme et du suspens, celui qui ne cesse de captiver l'enfant qui sommeille en chacun de nous. Robert Kopp
