Book Summary:

The Sheik (1919) is a romance novel by English author E.M. Hull. Written while the author’s husband was serving in the Great War, The Sheik launched Hull’s career as a bestselling author of romance fiction, selling millions of copies following the release of a 1921 film of the same name. Part of a tradition of Orientalist fiction, The Sheik has proven as controversial as it has been popular, and serves now as a reminder of the ways in which British subjects imagined themselves in relation to the colonial world. In an Algerian city, the young Diana Mayo prepares for a month-long journey through the desert. Despite warnings from family and friends, she departs with her Arab guide. Surrounded by endless swaths of sand, Diana is soon kidnapped by Sheik Ahmed Ben Hassan, who has bribed her guide to abandon her. Taken to his camp, Diana is repeatedly raped over a period of weeks, and soon gives up hope of ever escaping. After a thwarted attempt at stealing one of the Sheik’s horses, she slowly begins to fall in love with Ben Hassan, but realizes she must hide her feelings from a man who views her solely as an object of desire. As months go by, Diana learns the tragic truth behind the Sheik’s hatred of the English, and the two begin to grow close. When she is kidnapped by a rival, however, Ben Hassan must risk his life in order to save her. The Sheik is a bestselling romance novel by a master of English popular fiction. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of E.M. Hull’s The Sheik is a classic of English romance fiction reimagined for modern readers.

Book Summary:

Basado en numerosos informes de derechos humanos, Gaza. Una investigación sobre su martirio no solo presenta un meticuloso análisis de la Gran Mentira que Israel ha construido para justificar su supuesta «legítima defensa». La obra tampoco se queda en un mero relato de la catástrofe humanitaria que padece la población de la Franja de Gaza, sino que también es la prueba demoledora de que los valedores del derecho internacional, desde Amnistía Internacional, pasando por Human Rights Watch hasta el Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU, han traicionado los valores que definen Occidente para, más que abandonar a los palestinos a su suerte, justificar su exterminio. El presente libro de Norman G. Finkelstein es tanto un monumento a los mártires de la Franja de Gaza como un acto de resistencia contra el olvido de la historia que las instituciones internacionales, gobiernos, medios y poderes económicos tratan de imponernos.

Book Summary:

Ciego en Gaza (1936) es, ante todo, una novela personal e íntima. En conflicto entre lo intelectual y lo sexual y a través del misticismo, Huxley nos describe simultáneamente y sin aparente orden cronológico, la vida de una serie de personajes; sin embargo, al llegar al final, el lector ha de rendirse, sorprendido ante la apretada unidad que presenta la obra. Por encima de los valores de la inteligencia, del despiadado y lúcido estudio psicológico de los personajes, habituales en el autor; sorprende la prodigiosa construcción de la novela. Así, en Ciego en Gaza, Huxley llega al cénit de su vida narrativa, dedicado a describir en carne viva con sorprendente exactitud y crudeza a la sociedad de entreguerras, y se centra en una desesperada búsqueda de los valores positivos que podrían salvar al ser humano de la alienación a la que lo conduce el desarrollo tecnológico.

Book Summary:

A story of seduction and surrender by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author . . . An infamous beauty. A daring warrior . . . For five years, Sapphire has been the king of Sari’s most treasured concubine. Independent at last, she refuses to put herself in anyone’s control again. But now another’s meddling has led her into the path of proud, arrogant Wulfric, crown prince of the rival kingdom of D’Ashier . . . a man who is dangerous to her in every way. . . . and a seduction that could destroy them both. The daughter of Wulfric’s fiercest opponent, Sapphire is a prized warrior in her own right and highly skilled in the sensual arts—in short, Wulfric’s perfect match. A lasting union is unthinkable, but the bargain they strike—to spend one night together, and then part—proves impossible in the face of a desire powerful enough to bring two countries to the brink of war, and two hearts to the point of surrender . . . A Note from the Author: Dear Readers, Some of you may remember this story as Sapphire’s Worth. Written in 2004, a few brief excerpts were posted on my website and they were never forgotten—I’ve been receiving emails about Sapphire and Wulf ever since! In the Flesh was my second completed novel and although I have written many more since then, this Arabian Nights tale of seduction, power, and ultimate surrender holds a special place in my heart. Wulfric remains one of my favorite heroes. I hope he’ll become one of yours as well! With love, Sylvia

Book Summary:

A rediscovered masterwork from the famed Hungarian novelist Sándor Márai, Portraits of a Marriage is in fact a startling exploration of a triangle of entanglement. A wealthy couple in bourgeois society, Peter and Ilonka appear to enjoy a fine union. Their home is tastefully decorated; their clothes are well tailored; they move in important circles. And yet, to hypersensitive Ilonka, her choice in décor is never good enough, and her looks are never fair enough to fully win the love of her husband, who has carried with him a secret that has long tormented him: Peter is in love with Judit, a peasant and servant in his childhood home. For Judit, however, even Peter’s affection cannot transcend that which she loves most—the prospect of her own freedom and a future without the constraints of the society that has ensnared all three in a vortex of love and loss. Set against the backdrop of Hungary between the wars, Portraits of a Marriage offers further “posthumous evidence of [Márai’s] neglected brilliance” (Chicago Tribune) and his exquisite, acutely observed evocations of sacrifice and longing.

Book Summary:

If you sense someone’s watching you from afar, or if you feel a shadow other than your own at your back, I might as well pack it up and call it a day. It’s a job that makes a killing. Efficient, professional, and without apology, Lily Mansfield is a hired assassin, working as a contract agent for the CIA. Her targets are the powerful and corrupt, those who can’t be touched by the law. Now, after nineteen years of service, Lily has been drawn into a dangerous game that hasn’t been sanctioned, seeking vengeance for her own reasons. Each move bolder than the next, she is compromising her superiors, drawing unwanted attention, and endangering her very life. Though stress and shock have made her feel somewhat invincible and a little cocky, Lily knows that she too can be taken out in an instant. And if it’s her time, so be it. She intends to go down fighting. A CIA agent himself, Lucas Swain recognizes the signs of trauma in the line of fire. His orders: either bring her in or bring her down. Yet he too is drawn into the game with Lily Mansfield, dancing on a tightrope as he tries to avoid a major international incident while still battling a tenacious foe who is dogging their every step. Keeping laser focus on the task at hand while vigilantly watching her back, Mansfield never sees the lethal peril that lies directly in her path . . . and how loyalty has a price.

Book Summary:

En las Memorias de Rafael de Nogales Méndez, cuenta las aventuras que vivió en numerosos países, describiendo con deleite a sus amigos, relaciones, actividades y costumbres. Pero lo más conmovedor del texto, desde un punto de vista literario, es el posicionamiento de su voz narrativa. Al inicio de sus Memorias hace una distinción entre el aventurero y el caballero andante. El primero es "un iletrado pedante, o socialmente un caballero ocioso, fuera de combate, que no posee una carrera en particular y que siempre está buscando ingeniosamente el modo de hacer dinero, lo que para él es primordial y digno de cualquier culto, aun cuando fuese asesinato, deshonor". En cambio, el caballero es: "...un caballero de nacimiento. Para toda voluntaria o desinteresada acción audaz tiene un gesto elegante." Y cual Quijote andante, empieza a narrarnos su aventuras...

Book Summary:

Año de Gracia de 1177 Saladino, el hombre que ha jurado liberar Jerusalén de los invasores francos, está a punto de morir a manos de unos bandoleros cuando aparece inesperadamente Arn de Gothia, un caballero templario que mata a los agresores y salva la vida del caudillo musulmán. A sus veintisiete años, Arn es ya todo un aguerrido veterano entre los cruzados de Tierra Santa. Sin embargo, durante los diez años que han pasado desde que salió de tierras escandinavas camino de su penitencia en Palestina ha aprendido a entender y respetar a aquellos contra los que debe luchar. En su Suecia natal, Cecilia, su amor adolescente, ha sido recluida en un convento como castigo por su pasión carnal. Allí ha dado a luz a su hijo, que será criado en casa del tío de Arn, Birger Brosa. Extramuros, sigue la sangrienta lucha por el poder entre los linajes de Sverker y de Erik, en la que Birger Brosa maniobra con sagacidad, mientras Cecilia reza por el regreso de Arn a casa.

Book Summary:

El propósito del Comentario Bíblico de William MacDonald es darle al lector cristiano medio un conocimiento básico del mensaje de la Sagrada Biblia. También tiene como propósito estimular un amor y apetito por la Biblia de modo que el creyente deseará profundizar más en sus tesoros inagotables. Confío en que los eruditos encuentren alimento para sus almas, pero deberán tener en consideración y comprender que el libro no fue escrito primariamente para ellos. Todos los libros han sido complementados con introducciones, notas y bibliografías. A excepción de Salmos, Proverbios y Eclesiastés, la exposición del Antiguo Testamento se presenta principalmente de párrafo en párrafo en lugar de versículo por versículo. Los comentarios sobre el texto son aumentados por aplicaciones prácticas de las verdades espirituales, y por un estudio sobre tipos y figuras cuando es apropiado. Los pasajes que señalan al Redentor venidero reciben trato especial y se comentan con más detalle. El trato de los libros de Salmos, Proverbios y Eclesiastés es versículo por versículo, porque no se prestan a condensación, o bien porque la mayoría de los creyentes desea estudiarlos con más detalle. Hemos intentado enfrentar los textos problemáticos y cuando es posible dar explicaciones alternativas. Muchos de estos pasajes ocasionan desesperación en los comentaristas, y debemos confesar que en tales textos todavía "vemos por espejo, oscuramente". Pero la misma Palabra de Dios, iluminada por el Espíritu Santo de Dios, es más importante que cualquier comentario sobre ella. Sin ella no hay vida, crecimiento, santidad ni servicio aceptable. Debemos leerla, estudiarla, memorizarla, meditar sobre ella y sobre todo obedecerla. Como alguien bien ha dicho: "La obediencia es el órgano del conocimiento espiritual".

Book Summary:

RESUMEN “En el Año de la Luna” Historia de Sara, Abrán, Agar, Rebeca e Isaac narrada por el hijo de Sara y Abrán, Isaac. En su ancianidad, Isaac va recordando diferentes escenas de su vida, al mismo tiempo sus andanzas amorosas con Rebeca emanan con fuerza. La novela aborda el tema de los “Valores” algo tan necesario en una sociedad turbulenta, pluralista y, en continuo cambio, como la nuestra. Una sociedad en busca de una Ética Universal con unos mínimos aceptados por todos los pueblos. Una sociedad con necesidad de “Cuidados” tiernos y amorosos. Valores que se configurarán desde paradigmas diferentes a los dictados por sociedades patriarcales, desde posturas y pensamientos unilaterales, androcéntricos. Es una historia de amor entre la humanidad, representada en sus protagonistas: Sara, Agar, Abran, Rebeca e Isaac. Una Fuerza Interior misteriosa que sobrecoge y envuelve. Intuición creativa que nos va descubriendo la Bondad-Verdad-Belleza en aquello que sale al paso de manera natural. Educar la mirada en la ternura para poder descubrirlo. Una mirada inteligente que sabe ver la grandeza y hermosura del Ser Humano y el Universo donde habita. Un homenaje a esas “Grandes Señoras” de la antigüedad que con su tesón y manera de actuar, rompiendo moldes y saltándose leyes en un mundo hostil para ellas, cambiaron la historia. Las olas del mar Mediterráneo depositaron sus nombres en las finas arenas de las playas. Mujeres que lucharon y fueron avanzadilla de lo que un día llegarían a ser muchas mujeres de nuestros días. Diosas del desierto y de fértiles valles, de la llanura y la montaña. Diosas del Mediterráneo. Necesitamos caminar juntos, hombres y mujeres para emprender grandes proyectos. Sólo así haremos avanzar a la Humanidad de manera justa y gozosa.
