LA Dame Aux Camelias (World's Classics)

by Alexandre Dumas, David Coward (Editor)

jojofla@hotmail.com from Clearwater, FL , December 1, 1998

Tragic love affair that inspired La Traviata

More popularly known as "Camille", this wonderous romance continues to enthrall 150 years after its publication. It's all about an affair between playboy Armand and beautiful courtesan Marguerite; Armand is torn by jealousy over Marguerite's relationships with other men and is prepared to throw his life away to have her. But Marguerite sacrifices her one chance for happiness to ensure that Armand not lose face within society. Dumas based this on one of his own love affairs, and the passionate prose betrays this. It's a magnificent, exquisite love story, a tale to be cherished.

The Last Day of a Condemned Man : And Other Prison Writings (World's Classics)

by Victor Hugo, Geoff Woollen (Editor)

A very good portrayal of prison life in France at that time

The book was well written, and enjoyable (though the subject was not one of joy for the most part), yet I almost wish one could have known the main character a little more.

PAPERBACK


The Last of the Mohicans (Oxford World's Classics)

by James Fenimore Cooper, John McWilliams (Editor)

An action packed book about one groups journey in the U.S.

I really enjoyed this book because it keeps you on the edge of your seat. It really captures how dangerous life really was in the late seventeen hundreds. Also, how indian tribes didn't like each other. The title "The Last of the Mohicans" is really what the story is about.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

by Washington Irving

Gr. 3^-5. Many folk-art paintings illustrate this simplified retelling of Washington Irving's Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

A large-format picture book that will fill a need in some libraries.

LIBRARY BINDING


Leone Leoni

by George Sand, George B. Ives (Translator)

George Sand's Leone Leoni reverses the Abbe Prevost's Manon Lescaut and gives Manon's helplessly amoral character to a man. The girl he seduces becomes the exponent of undying, endless, forgiving love. The setting is the demimonde of Venice, and the plot is thick with sinister figures whose inluence drag the miserable lovers down. The hapless Juliet has a champion, however, who is willing to go to any lengths to save her from her passion; his desperate act provides the final ironic flourish to a spellbinding tale. Leone Leoni is only one of nine novels and non-fiction works by George Sand published in trade paperback by Academy Chicago

PAPERBACK


Les Liaisons Dangereuses (The World's Classics)

by Choderlos De Laclos, Douglas Parmee (Translator), Pierre Ambroise Francois Choderl Laclos, David Coward (Editor)

and you thought WE were wicked....

Many people have seen one of several movie productions of this book and assumed that it is a modern story that has taken the 18th century as its setting. In fact, the book was written at that time, and it provides a shocking, thrilling, sexy window into the lives of the french aristocracy. It is a thing of beauty. The exploits of the central characters make your average daytime soap opera look tame, and it is all done with a cunning and an evil grace that went out of style with the french revolution. Language is used as an aphrodesiac, a lever, and occasionally a cudgel, and since the book takes the form of the published letters of the main characters we hear it straight from the pens of those involved. "Les Liasons Dangereuses" will make you mourn the invention of the telephone. Such skill with the written word! The double meaning was king, with muddied intentions as its queen. Read this book: you really must. If you love language it will become a favorite of yours, just as it did for me.

Letting Go

by Phillip Roth

Letting Go is Roth's first full-length novel, published just after Goodbye, Columbus, when he was twenty-nine. Set in the 1950s Chicago, New York, and Iowa city, Letting Go presents as brilliant a fictional portrait as we have of a mid-century America defined by social and ethical constraints and by moral compulsions conspicuously different from those of today.

PAPERBACK


Lily's Crossing
(Newberry Honor Book)

by Patricia Reilly Giff

In the summer of 1944, 10-year-old Lily Mollahan grows increasingly irritated with the war overseas and its threat closer to home: "Was that all anyone thought about--news and the war?" Staying with her grandmother in Rockaway while her father heads for France and fighting, Lily becomes increasingly intrigued by another child, a Hungarian refugee. "Albert could really be a Nazi spy," she fantasizes. Imagination is one thing, lying another, and as her vacation draws on, the young heroine's tales become more dangerous than charming. Patricia Reilly Giff carefully evokes wartime tensions and summertime torpor. She has also created a complicated, intriguing little girl. (Ages 8 to 12)

Lincoln : A Photobiography

by Russell Freedman

Mike from Seattle, Washington , May 31, 1998

This book got me interested in Lincoln, the best president.

This book was not one that said he was born on this date and this happened Da Da Da. It got into the feelings of other people and had opinions on the Cival War from both sides. It has many good pictures and explained them all.It was the best non-fiction book I have ever read!

PAPERBACK


The Little Prince

by Antoine De Saint-Exupery, Katherine Woods (Translator), Antoine de Saint Exupery, Antoine De Saint-Exupery

It is hard to think of any book so widely read and internationally loved by both children and adults as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince, originally written as Le Petit Prince in 1943. A fable in the most classic sense, this wise story offers layer upon layer to be peeled away with each reading. Just as with the narrator's Drawing Number One, The Little Prince can truly be understood only by children (a classification that has nothing to do with age).

PAPERBACK


Little Women

by Louisa May Alcott, Ann M. Magagna, Louis Jambour (Illustrator)

The first volume of Alcott's classic novel, in its unrevised, unabridged 1868 form, is given a documentary treatment, with copious supplemental information such as maps, photographs, and historical sidebars printed in the margins alongside the text. Often interesting, but not always of great relevance, the information is likely to prove distracting to readers attempting to focus on the story.
