The Time Traveler's Wife
Audrey Niffenegger
015602943X
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This clever and inventive tale works on three levels: as an intriguing science fiction concept, a realistic character study and a touching love story. Henry De Tamble is a Chicago librarian with "Chrono Displacement" disorder; at random times, he suddenly disappears without warning and finds himself in the past or future, usually at a time or place of importance in his life. This leads to some wonderful paradoxes. From his point of view, he first met his wife, Clare, when he was 28 and she was 20. She ran up to him exclaiming that she'd known him all her life. He, however, had never seen her before. But when he reaches his 40s, already married to Clare, he suddenly finds himself time travelling to Clare's childhood and meeting her as a six-year-old. The book alternates between Henry and Clare's points of view, and so does the...

Gulliver's Travels (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
Jonathan Swift
1593080573
October 2003
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Considered the greatest satire ever written in English, Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels chronicles the fantastic voyages of Lemuel Gulliver, principally to four marvelous realms: Lilliput, where the people are six inches tall; Brobdingnag, a land inhabited by giants; Laputa, a wondrous flying island; and a country where the Houyhnhnms, a race of intelligent horses, are served by savage humanoid creatures called Yahoos.

Beneath the surface of this enchanting fantasy lurks a devastating critique of human malevolence, stupidity, greed, vanity, and short-sightedness. A brilliant combination of adventure, humor, and philosophy, Gulliver’s Travels is one of literature’s most durable masterpieces.

Book Description
Like a leisurely stroll along the oak-shaded paths of campus, this vibrant collection of photographs captures the heart and soul of the community that is the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

How I Learned Soul Travel
Terrill Wilson

July 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The first time Terrill Willson moved out of his physical body, he had never heard of Soul Travel. It just happened. But this exciting taste of life beyond death made him want to do it again - this time in full, conscious control. Then a friend gave him a book on Eckankar, the Ancient Science of Soul Travel. The author, Paul Twitchell, suggested that getting out of the body was completely natural - a latent ability that most people leave behind with childhood. The book, ECKANKAR - The Key to Secret Worlds, outlined six step-by-step exercises for Soul Travel. With these simple techniques, Terrill began his experiment with Soul Travel, taking precious hours from sleep after a long day's work on a Mississippi riverboat. This is the story of his successes and setbacks, fantastic journeys, and human self-doubts. Terrill...

·
 
Back Cover
It all began with a lecture that introduced five university students to a man who would change their lives, a wizard who could take them from Earth to the heart of the first of all worlds--Fionavar. And take them Loren Silvercloak did, for his need--the need of Fionavar and all the worlds--was great indeed.

And in a marvelous land of men and dwarves, of wizards and gods--and of the Unraveller and his minions of Darkness--Kimberly, Dave, Jennifer, Kevin, and Paul discovered who they were truly meant to be. For the five were a long-awaited part of the pattern known as the Fionavar Tapestry, and only if they accepted their destiny would the armies of the Light stand any chance of surviving when the Unraveller unleashed his wrath upon the world. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.



The Time Machine and The Invisible Man (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
H. G. Wells
1593080328
August 2003
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Time Machine, H. G. Wells’s first novel, is a tale of Darwinian evolution taken to its extreme. Its hero, a young scientist, travels 800,000 years into the future and discovers a dying earth populated by two strange humanoid species: the brutal Morlocks and the gentle but nearly helpless Eloi.

The Invisible Man mixes chilling terror, suspense, and acute psychological understanding into a tale of an equally adventurous scientist who discovers the formula for invisibility—a secret that drives him mad.

Immensely popular during his lifetime, H. G. Wells, along with Jules Verne, is credited with inventing science fiction. This new volume offers two of Wells’s best-loved and most critically acclaimed “scientific romances.” In each, the author grounds his...


Test of Time : A Novel Approach to the SAT and ACT (Harvest Original)
Charles Harrington Elster
0156011379
May 17, 2004
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 8 Up–Flashing back and forth between the present and late-19th-century Connecticut, Test of Time stars Mark Twain, whose Huckleberry Finn manuscript mysteriously vanishes into thin air from his desk, only to be replaced with the laptop computer belonging to modern-day university student Orlando Ortiz. Such an intriguing plot twist could potentially evolve into a quirky, suspenseful time-travel mystery in which Orlando and Twain devise a plan to retrieve their respective belongings. But the book also hopes to serve as a learning tool for the verbal portions of standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT. Unfortunately, readers get bogged down not only by a flat narrative, but also by oddly placed, boldface vocabulary words embedded into the text. These test words, which repeatedly number well over...

A Room with a View (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
E. M. Forster
1593082886
May 2005
Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
Listening to Joanna David's performance of Forster's classic is as entertaining as watching a full-cast production. Forster's comedy, featuring tourists in Italy, romantic intrigue, class struggles, and a variety of other subplots, shines in audio. David's reading is simply marvelous. Her sweet British voice fits perfectly with the story, and her accent lends the perfect charm to every character, particularly to Lucy Honeychurch, who exchanges rooms with George Emerson to obtain a view of Florence. While Honeychurch's antics are at the heart of this classic, David's portrayals of every character are equally nuanced and superb. A ROOM WITH A VIEW has appeared on audio multiple times, garnering favorable reviews; it's hard to imagine a better performance than this. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award ©...

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
Mark Twain
159308210X
September 2005
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 5 Up-While Mark Twain is most often identified with his childhood home on the Mississippi, he wrote many of his enduring classics during the years he lived in Hartford, Connecticut. He had come a long way from Hannibal when he focused his irreverent humor on medieval tales, and wrote A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. The hit on the head that sent protagonist Hank Morgan back through 13 centuries did not affect his natural resourcefulness. Using his knowledge of an upcoming eclipse, Hank escapes a death sentence, and secures an important position at court. Gradually, he introduces 19th century technology so the clever Morgan soon has an easy life. That does not stop him from making disparaging, tongue-in-cheek remarks about the inequalities and imperfections of life in Camelot....

Appointment in Vienna: An American Psychoanalyst Recalls Her Student Days in Pre-War Austria
Esther Menaker
0312025424


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Menaker's deftly written memoir offers a gripping, vitriolic firsthand glimpse of Vienna's psychoanalytic subculture in its heyday. In 1930, the author, then 23, and her husband Bill, 34, both eager Freudian converts, set out from New York to train at Vienna's Psychoanalytic Institute. Menaker retrospectively turns the tables on her analyst, Anna Freud, whom she found belittling, domineering and bluntly insensitive. Her husband's psychoanalysis with Helen Deutsch was equally disappointing. Surrounded by poverty, unemployment, beggars and rampant anti-Semitism, Menaker was appalled at her mentors' seeming lack of social or political concern, their noninterest in the way cultural factors impinged on the individual. Author of Otto Rank , psychology professor at New York University and a practicing psychotherapist,...
