First Voices is an amazingly good work with impressive writing skills that immediately places it as a valuable work to own. It puts Biblical characters and events in a fresh perspective. This is an impressive work that appears to be another Testament. First Voices tells the story of Adam and Eve, Shem and Eber, Noah and the Flood, Sarah, Keturah, Hagar and Abraham, The Minos of Crete, Nimrod and Canaan, Chedorlaomer and the city of Babylon, Esau and Jacob Judah and Shua, the Pharoah and Joseph, the Tower of Babel, the great war of Abraham, the tragedy of Lot, the thinker Jacob and independent Judah. Many other stories presents an uncanny insight into the world's first personalities. This book transcends intelligence and religious narrative. It is a master's craft at its best. First Voices is a great achievement into the world of Biblical literature. Historic events are rendered in grand depictions in epic porportions. It offers an insightful penetration into the word of God and seems to be a separate Testament speaking to the world how God interacts with mankind in real life. First Voices is a beautiful, wonderful, poetic work. And perhaps, the greatest Biblical epic ever written!

Ένα σύγχρονο αριστούργηµα από την πιο δηµοφιλή Ιταλίδα συγγραφέα της εποχής µας. Η Υπέροχη Φίλη µου, το πρώτο βιβλίο της Τετραλογίας της Νάπολης, είναι η ιστορία της Έλενας και της Λίλα, µια ιστορία που ξεκινά τη δεκαετία του ’50 µε φόντο µια φτωχογειτονιά της Νάπολης. Η συγγραφέας καταδύεται στην περίπλοκη φύση της φιλίας των δύο κοριτσιών που από έφηβες γίνονται γυναίκες, ακολουθώντας βήµα βήµα την εξέλιξη καθεµιάς ξεχωριστά, τον τρόπο που η µία επηρεάζει την άλλη, τα συναισθήµατα που ανά τις δεκαετίες τις βοηθούν να χτίσουν µια ουσιαστική, ακλόνητη σχέση. Με απαράµιλλο στιλ και αψεγάδιαστη, σχολαστική µατιά η Φερράντε σε µια καθηλωτική αφήγηση ξεδιπλώνει µέσα από την ιστορία µιας φιλίας την ιστορία µιας γειτονιάς, µιας πόλης κι εντέλει ενός έθνους που βιώνει κοσµοϊστορικές αλλαγές µε το πέρασµα των δεκαετιών. «Και τελικά το πραγµατικό θέµα της Φερράντε είναι το περιθώριο που έχει ο καθένας από µας, τόσο µεγάλο και τόσο ελάχιστο, να διαµορφώσει ο ίδιος την ύπαρξή του. Κι αυτό το περιθώριο εξετάζει από κάθε του άποψη, πολιτική, προσωπική, υπαρξιακή... Κατά βάθος αυτή η Τετραλογία της Νάπολης θα µπορούσε να ονοµαστεί η τετραλογία της ελευθερίας». Le Monde des Livres «Να διαποτίσεις τη µυθοπλασία µε την αδιάλυτη δύναµη της ζωής, να την κάνεις να είναι όχι απλά λέξεις στο χαρτί αλλά εσωτερική δύναµη, αυτό είναι το µεγαλύτερο επίτευγµα της τέχνης...» Financial Times «Η άγνωστη συγγραφέας ενός διάσηµου αριστουργήµατος... Η Έλενα Φερράντε αναγνωρίζεται σε παγκόσµιο επίπεδο ως µια σπουδαία συγγραφέας της εποχής µας. Κανείς µας όµως δε γνωρίζει την ταυτότητά της και εκείνη είναι αποφασισµένη να µην την αποκαλύψει». The Sunday Times «Ό,τι καλύτερο διάβασα φέτος». Richard Flanagan «Η Φερράντε µιλάει για τις γυναίκες και τη φιλία µε ασύλληπτη δύναµη». Gwyneth Paltrow «Διαβάζοντας τη Φερράντε θυµήθηκα αυτή τη σχεδόν παιδιάστικη έξαψη να διαβάσεις την επόµενη σελίδα, αυτή την αίσθηση ότι τα µάτια σου έχουν ξεκολλήσει από το κεφάλι σου, αυτή τη σκέψη πως ποτέ δεν περίµενες ότι τα βιβλία µπορούν να σου το κάνουν αυτό!» Elizabeth Strout (βραβείο Πούλιτζερ) «Η γραφή της Φερράντε δε γνωρίζει όρια, µπορεί να οδηγήσει την κάθε σκέψη στο ρηξικέλευθο αποτέλεσµα και αντίστοιχα να γυρίσει πίσω στην πιο ακραία της αρχή...» The New Yorker «Ένα αριστούργηµα, πέρα από όρια και είδη». Il Salvagente «Οι γυναίκες της Φερράντε είναι πραγµατικά έργα τέχνης!» El Pais «Φανταστείτε την Τζέιν Όστεν θυµωµένη και θα έχετε µια ιδέα του πόσο εκρηκτικά σπουδαία είναι αυτή η Τετραλογία της Νάπολης!» The Australian

1975. Christopher Reed, a young minister in his first job, receives much-needed seasoning, is necessarily dis-illusioned. How? On one level by having an affair with Becky, one of his teen-aged parishioners. But the affair begun on a theological dare so to speak, in order to test an intriguing vision of the freedom of the Gospel which Dr. Buttrick, the senior pastor under whom Reed works, a truly Christ-like man (though it depends, of course, on what your image of Jesus is) has presented. "Scrupulous," or guilt-stricken, Reed tells his wife Vinnie, an artist and a free thinker, what he has done with Becky. Vinnie erupts, then curiously adjusts, gradually accommodates herself, allows the affair to continue. Reed also tells Dr. Buttrick what he has done. Great- spirited, a wise old man, a genius, Dr. Buttrick listens and counsels. He counsels both Reed and Vinnie. The three of them discuss the limits of marriage, the relevance of Christianity to same. Vinnie and Dr. Buttrick have their own intense relationship. Meanwhile the meteoric Becky moves through her senior year in high school, fights free of her youth and prepares to leave for college. Obsessed almost, Reed suffers at the prospect of "losing" her. And grows in some ways as a person or at least as a pastor, learning to expect less of the flock which he supposedly leads, since it often acts less than nobly. Some members even turn on Dr. Buttrick, the genuinely good man, in the year of the novel's action.

The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great adventure novels of all time. But the author, Alexandre Dumas, also adapted his novel into four riveting plays. Part Three: The Rise of Monte Cristo is set two decades after Edmond Dantès has been unjustly imprisoned in the Château d'If. Edmond has made himself into the Count of Monte Cristo, and he now sets out to gain his revenge upon the three men who shangaied him into 14 years of prison. First on the list is Fernand Mondego, whose treacheries have brought him a fortune, a title (the Count of Morcerf), and a wife: Edmond's fiancée, Mercédès, who's long believed him dead. Monte Cristo uses his great wealth to draw a net around Fernand, gradually exposing his lies to the world. Finally, the two men must confront each other--knowing that only one of them will leave the room alive! Great action drama!

The marriage of Mona and Shawn Black was dominated by infidelity and lies. Now the drama that nearly tore them apart seems to have passed on to the next generation. Their children, Alex and Ashley, are in their second year at UCLA, and life is not simple for either one of them. Now that he knows Shawn Black is not his biological father, Alex is busy searching for the identity of his birth father. Unbeknownst to him, his sister Ashley seems to have inherited a destructive trait from this mystery man--using people's secrets to get what she's unwilling to work hard for. After the death of his lover, Wallace returns to California. He's on a mission to reconcile with the family that threw him out when he was eighteen, as well as to uncover information about his deceased partner. Who was the real James Parks, and why did he come to such an untimely demise? Wallace discovers shocking secrets that reveal a connection with James that he never knew he had. College professors Grace and David Andrews are a married couple keeping secrets from each other. This is no run-of-the-mill marital infidelity, though. David doesn't know that his someone-on-the-side shares a painful link to Grace's past. If the truth is revealed, it could send everyone down a path to certain devastation. One man has had a hand in the fate of every one of these characters. His actions have resulted in the dismemberment of three families. Now that the loose ends have begun to unravel, will any of them be able to pull their lives back together?
