Book Descriptions

Looking for Alaska

A deserved New York Times bestseller by John Green, this award-winning book (Green's debut novel!) "brilliantly captures the exquisite painful joy of living and loving. Poignant, funny and heartbreaking, this novel will stay with you forever."

It's the story of Miles Halter whose "whole life has been one big non-event" until he starts boarding school with new friends and gets to know amamzing but troubled Alaska Young, which unleashes a series of romantic, exciting and tragic events that change everything.

A great piece of Young Adult fiction, suitable for German teenagers, too. Far from being banal, the book is comparatively easy to read, divided into short chapters, funny and exciting.

Ansul was once a peaceful town filled with libraries, schools and temples. But that was long ago, before the Alds came.

What few books that have survived are hidden in the Waylord's house for safekeeping, in the care of the Waylord, crippled by years of torture, and the daughter of his heart, Memer. And now times are changing. The Uplands poet Orrec Caspro and his wife Gry have arrived, and in his voice is a clarion call, awakening a conquered people.
